Peaches are a nutritious source of vitamins and minerals, such as fiber and vitamin A, and are a healthy addition to your baby's diet. Your baby may enjoy the flavor of peaches, and frozen peaches can make it easier and more convenient for you to prepare this food, particularly if peaches are not in season. Choose frozen peaches that do not include added sugar to keep your baby's food as pure and nutritious as possible.

Step 1

Open your bag of frozen peaches and use a sharp knife to cut the peaches into small pieces. Thaw the peaches for a few minutes if they are too hard to slice.

Step 2

Place the chopped pieces of frozen peaches into a medium-sized saucepan.

Step 3

Cover the frozen peaches with cool water.

Step 4

Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the water to a boil.

Step 5

Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the frozen peaches until they are very soft.

Step 6

Drain the water out of the saucepan using a strainer or colander and cool the peaches slightly.

Step 7

Place the cooled peaches into your blender and puree them until they are smooth. Add a bit of water, formula or breast milk to achieve a thin and smooth consistency.

Step 8

Place the pureed peaches into individual storage containers and store them in the refrigerator until they are ready to serve.
