    My baby hates this Puree. It tastes pretty disgusting to be fair.

    Perfect for weaning and stopping an overdose of orange food! Developed after DS got 'carotenemia' (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1104368-overview)- honestly, sounds like a joke but it?s a recognised condition caused by too much beta-carotene, very prevalent in weaning foods! It's not serious but made him look like I'd given him a spray tan and had a baby Dale Winton on my hands. So to avoid an orange baby, strange looks and a rush to the docs with suspected jaundice, mix it up with some iron-rich and nutritious baby butter bean puree.
