Pears are very easy to digest making them ideal for starting to wean your baby. Try Comice or Williams pears for this recipe.


  • 6 ripe dessert pears, peeled

  • Juice of half a lemon

  • Sugar to taste


  • 1.

    Quarter the pears and use a teaspoon to scoop out the core. Put the quarters into a saucepan and cover with water. Add the lemon juice and a little sugar.

  • 2.

    Bring to simmering point and gently poach the pears for about 5 minutes or until the fruit is soft - the time will depend on the ripeness of the fruit.

  • 3.

    Leave to cool in the syrup, then puree in a food processor or with a hand-held blender. Divide into portions and serve or freeze.
