Warm Papaya Puree | Baby Constipation Recipe


Suitable Age

4 – 9 Months

Intended Purpose

Baby Constipation

Preparation Time

10 Minutes

Papaya is a great babyfood, because it does not contain as much sugar as other popular fruits (like pears) and it contains even more vitamin C than oranges. On top of that, papayas are rich in fiber, vitamin A and E and a great source of calcium and potassium.

Papaya contains papain, which supports the digestive function. That is why this fruit usually works really well for constipation.


1 Medium sized papaya (about 11.5oz or 330 grams – unpeeled)

1/8 Cup (30ml) of sterile water 

If you do not have sterile water, boil the water first and let it cool down to get rid of all germs!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Peel and chop the papaya

Step 2

Add the chopped papaya to a blender and add the water

Step 3: 

Once blended, add to a pot and warm the puree up. Do not bring to boil! Just warm it up a bit!

Step 4:

Serve the papaya puree warm and on empty stomach
