  • put the food in a bowl, a little at a time. save the rest for up to 3 days in the fridge. if you use the microwave to re heat the leftovers do do only for 5 seconds at a time stir and taste before giving it to baby.

  • Have you tasted that jarred stuff? It is not just expensive, it tastes awful and you don't really know what is in it. You can easily make your own baby food. Babies love avocado, baked sweet potato, cooked beans, pureed peas, etc.

    The best book on feeding babies, toddlers and their families is called Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. You should be able to find it at your local library. There is some great information on the website:
