Kids Friendly Apple Sauce


 In US when you order a kids meal you this apple sauce along with the meal in a small bowl. I don’t know if the kiddo likes it or not but I love it. Its perfect food for kids from age 6 months or 5 years. A great way to give apples to kids. You can make this sauce without adding any other ingredients and use it for baking as an egg substitute. Instead of apples you can use pears and make pear sauce too.


I usually go with Gala or red apples for making this sauce. I haven’t tried this with green apples or honey crisp. I am sure any variety of apple would work as we cook them completely. All we have to do is chop the apples and cook them along with some sugar and cinnamon and puree them or mash. Simple and yummy apple sauce is ready within 15 minutes.

  1. A great one.I have seen plain apple sauce being fed to tiny infants in small doses in our home and the infants love it.
    If not for the infants, you can use it to replace eggs and butter in baking.
