More Homemade Baby Food

I enjoy making my little girl some homemade baby food because it is easy and it is good for her, and the fact that it tastes far better than the ones in the jarred food. I know that because I do taste the food before giving it to my baby (laughing). I do agree that the jarred ones are easy and convenient, but so is the homemade one. All you have to do is make them in one big batch, store and freeze them. When you are ready to use, just pop them out, thaw and add cereal, water or milk. Easy peasy!!! I am doing really well at not buying jarred baby food. My little girl started eating solids when she was about 3 1/2 months old and since then I only bought two jarred food for her and that was when we were traveling. I would say by making it homemade, we are able to save up some money.  We should be rich by now with all of the money saving ways we are doing (laughing). You know how expensive these jarred baby food can get in just an itty-bitty tiny jar they come in with. Anyway, here are some that I made the other day. 

I boiled sweet potatoes, peas, and broccoli the other day, then I pureed them in the food processor and I have an instant baby food. How easy was that! All I had to do was to store them in the ice tray, cover it, and stick it in the freezer. Once frozen, remove the cubed baby food and store them in freezer bags. Once you are ready to use, just take out one or two cubes to thaw and warm up, then mix with cereal, milk or water if desired. Or prepare it by itself. I bet your baby will like it, at least my little girl does. I must admit I was a bit worried about pureeing the broccoli because I thought it would turn out a bit stringy or it's not going to be creamy for the baby to eat (what was I thinking), but I was actually very pleased with the outcome. The pureed broccoli tasted creamy and just delicious. I would eat these food as well. You think baby food is yucky and tasteless, well think again! I told you making homemade baby food was easy. Of course, it is your own decision to make whether or not to make homemade ones or just buy them at the store. The thing with homemade food though is that it does not have any added unnecessary ingredients in the baby food. Fresh, fresh, fresh!!!!

Look at the colors of the pureed baby food. You know it's going to be good. 
And that makes for one happy, healthy baby.
