  • yes I used to make my own for my daughter, especially as she got older and was eating more textures.........I used to cut up and steam, pumpkin, potato an apple, a little garlic and a little basil or parsley, then mash it with a little milk, then add daughter loved it, I would make a big batch and freeze in can add chicken etc if you like when serving.

  • We practiced "he eats what we eat." No purees, no cereal. Slices of banana and avocado, fork mashed peas, bits of baked potato, etc.

  • I made DS's baby food. When he got a little older, he got a pureed version of whatever we were having, spices and all. Now he will eat ANYTHING. Jarred food never looked (or tasted) very good!

  • I love to sew! I make my kids pjs & such! Not all there clothes just a few things but it's so rewarding watching them wear something mama made them!

  • I bought everything except bananas in a jar. My kids would not eat them out of a jar so I just mashed them & they gobbled them up & sweet potatoes & regular potatoes mashed.
