Make your own babyfood… simply

dv2093024

Fresh is best.   It holds the most nutrients and vitamins that are essential for healthy, growing bodies.  All it takes is a blender!  When adding solid food to your baby’s diet, remember to start off slowly.  Here is a website full of useful information as to age appropriate introductions:  http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/solids.htm

Directions:

1. Steam or cook vegetables, fruits, and/or grains.

Suggestions:

carrots, beets, zucchini, yellow squash, winter squash, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, yams, spinach, apples, pears, apricots, peaches, bananas, avocados  rice, oatmeal, barley

**It is not necessary to cook the bananas or the avocados

2. Put ingredients in the blender

3. Add water or broth by Tbsp. and slowly pulse your blender until you get the desired consistency

If you are going out for the day, you can either buy a few small jars or wash and re-use babyfood jars (just make sure to use that day to ensure freshness).   You can also make large batches to freeze in ice cube trays that are then sealed in a freezer bag.  When you are in need of already-made food just pop out and thaw either in a little bit of  hot water, in a jar in your diaper bag if you are on-the-go, or in your refrigerator.

  1. i bake little meat loafs in cupcake pans and then freeze them. big hit and soooo easy.
    i never use jar baby food. just cook everything fresh, run it through the food mill, and freeze it in ice cube trays. so easy. so cheap. so satisfying.
