When I told folks I was going to make my own homemade baby food..they laughed. “Yeah, we will see how much time you have for that after the baby comes…” Mind over matter people! This was back in 2010, when my now 3-year-old son, Caston, was ready to begin solids. He NEVER ate any jarred baby food and now I’m on my second little bundle of joy, Cora, and she’s just started on solids.
Well, come on over to my house and see the bags of baby food I’ve made over the past couple weeks – in a very short amount of time I might add. Only the best for Cora!
I made sweet pea puree the other day and looked at how brightly colored the peas were. The jarred stuff looks like a brown-green color and I’ve never known a baby to like peas. Well, mine does! It’s hher favorite thus far.
I’m also making sure Cora has an adventurous palate by incorporating things like avocado, salmon, pumpkin, butternut squash and even kale. I think kids are picky eaters bc they aren’t shown how fun food is! Caston is an incredible eater and love fruits and vegetables…I think in part to all tasty and diverse foods he was introduced to at an early age.
Plus, making your baby’s homemade food is not only healthier and tastier-you save money! Trust me on this and read this.
I whole-heartily believe this is the best food for your baby….no preservatives and additives- just fresh and healthy food! Give it a shot, you will be so happy you did this for your baby! Recipes to come…
