Do you make your own baby food at home?

My son is ten months old and I would like to make food for him at sometimes, other than the usual stuff like mashed potatoes and such so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas? Please share your "recipes".

  • Kaylee (10 1/2 months) just eats everything that we do, just in moderation with little to no seasoning. Just make sure veggies are super soft, meat is well done, etc.

  • I always made our own baby food, squash, sweet potatos, applesauce, peas just about everything. I would make a large batch and then I would put it in ice cube trays and then transfer to a bag. When they first start out they ate one block of the food and then as they got older I knew to take two or three. I really did not want to giat we ate right off them what we ate right off because I add spices and butter and things like that and I knew that it would be a little bit harder on their digestion. As they started getting older I would do the same things iwth meal like lasagna or spaghetti. I would cook it and then put it in the food processor which we spent like 10 dollars on, it saved us a ton of money. I really didn't realize how much until I went on an extended vacation and actually bought baby food. mashed bananas were always our back up food we could make it anywhere with a fork.

  • Made my own baby food. At this age, they ate what we did and I just ran it through a baby food blender. No spicy, hot or anything like that.

  • We used a little food mill. DS had whatever were having and I would just grind it up, add a little water or breastmilk if it was dry (like chicken) and voila. dinner for the little monster. We took that mill everywhere, peoples houses, resturants, camping...:D

  • I just threw everything in the blender, and pushed puree. . .

    baby food is expensive.
