  • I made all my own baby food. Best tip. make a bit then put the rest of the rest of it in ice cube containers so that it freezers, then you can take out however many cubes you need when you want it and don't have cook from scratch every time. And add some fresh herbs to the mix so that you develop their taste buds. ie bit of rosemary to mush potatoe etc

  • I made all my own baby food as well. I just used a regular steamer, then pureed the stuff with a hand blender. It was simple and I didn't have to buy anything. Then I did like another poster said and froze them in ice cube trays. (After they were frozen, I would take out the cubes and put them into big baggies to take up less room) Then every morning, I would take out however many cubes I needed for each meal (if I remember right, 1 cube=about 1oz), put them into bowls and set them in the fridge to thaw out.
