Stars: The butternut squash and sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamins A and C, as well as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Apples are high in fiber, potassium & Vitamin B6 and also contain calcium.

2. Wash the sweet potato, poke a few holes in the skin with a fork, and wrap in aluminum foil.
3. Bake the sweet potato and squash in the oven for about 40 minutes at 350F until the butternut squash's skin starts to pucker and the sweet potato is soft.
4. While those are cooking, cut an apple (peel for younger babies) into small 1-inch chunks. Steam on the stovetop for about 10 minutes until soft with a fork.
5. Scoop squash, sweet potato, and softened apple into a food processor or blender with a little bit of water reserved from steaming of the apples.
