Mashed Banana


  • 1 banana
  • breastmilk, water or formula


  • Peel the banana and slice into a bowl
  • Take a fork and mash the banana until the required consistency
  • If desired, add a water, breastmilk, or formula for a little more liquid
  • Serve on a clean spoon


Remember, if your baby is younger than 6 months you will need to sterilize all of the equipment used. If you prefer an even more liquid consistency, you can use a blender to puree the fruit more effectively.  
There is a way to prepare a banana for a baby to eat without using any cutlery. Simply leave the banana in its skin and press firmly all along with your fingers until the banana feels soft inside. The skin acts as a clean pouch and once opened, you can either serve the banana on a spoon in the normal way or even allow baby to eat from the skin with their fingers.
