You could make your own pumpkin purée by steaming pumpkin until soft and then blending, or just use canned pumpkin puree from the store.

(You can also substitute butternut squash or sweet potato if you can’t find pumpkin)

👶🏻Suitable for babies over 12 months - the peanut butter makes these quite sticky so I wouldn’t advise them for very young babies still learning to chew
