Monique Samuels and Baby Chase show you how to prepare fresh apples, sweet potatoes, carrots and green beans for natural fresh options to your baby’s diet.


  • Introduce new foods one at a time
  • Try steaming then blending for a smooth texture and consistency easy for digestion
  • Try using a fruits & veggies wash to clean your produce before preparing
  • Be sure to remove all skin to avoid small chunks when puréed
  • As an alternative to using a baby food cooker, boil/steam your produce in a pot then purée in a blender

About the author

Monique Samuels

When I was a little girl, my aunt introduced me to her holistic approach for healthy living. Whenever I was sick, she always had a natural remedy. When I became a mom, I remembered my aunt’s recipes, and sought out to find additional solutions. I soon discovered essential oils and began creating my own natural remedies for everything from the common cold, nasal congestion and earaches, to helping my children get a good night’s sleep. I started sharing these discoveries with friends, and before long I was receiving calls, emails and texts every day from friends who were searching for help, which led me to creating this site.
