I have had quite a few people say they are impressed and ask about what I do to make my own baby food, so I thought I would share a few tips I have picked up. Surprisingly, it doesn’t take alot of time to do and is inexpensive. I think it helps encourage more family meals and healthy eating habits. I just make food that we are eating for Jake too, as well as freezing more for later. I personally love cooking so making baby food is fun for me, but even though it is super easy, if you don’t like cooking; I wouldn’t recommend it.
Some food you can just puree without cooking first, like bananas and peaches, while others you need to steam before pureeing.
Here are some foods I made just the other day.
I love the Sage Spoonfuls baby food cook book. Not because you really need recipes for making baby food, but more for the great comprehensive timeline of when to start certain foods. They have answers to pretty much all the questions I had when starting solid foods.
I love our steamer. I use it for cooking most all of our vegetables too. Today, I was making Zucchini, one of my family’s favorite vegetables.
These Ball Jars are super handy for freezing food and great baby sized proportions.
Bananas are delicious and do not need to be cooked! So easy and one of Jake man’s favorite!
Delicious peaches. Another no cooking puree!
Very healthy eating habits start from the beginning!
Just don’t forget the
And one final starting solids tip I have discovered. Attach a command hook to the back of your high chair to hang your bibs for easy access and out of the way storage.
Until next week, XOXO!
