Banana puree is a soft paste or thick liquid made from processed bananas, which can be mashed, blended, or pressed through a strainer. It is commonly used as a first food for babies. Bananas are a good source of vitamins, with large-sized bananas containing high amounts of vitamin A, which is essential for the development of specialized tissue in the eyes and for the growth of skin and soft skeletal tissue. Bananas also contain vitamin B in the form of thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid, which help in calming the nervous system. Additionally, bananas contain a small amount of vitamin C.
