  • It depens on what kind u wanna make and if u are going to make alot and put it in jars or if u do it for each meal... i make the babies food when i make ares and i usual just put it in the blender and make sure its blended really well.... like carrots, green beans, potatos and ect... i dont do that with pork or beef but sometinmes i give chicken like that

  • I steam veggies. I add nothing. Then puree in a blender or food processor. Fruits I just put a little bit of water in a pot and add the peeled fruit. Let simmer until soft then I mash it and finally puree it. You can also store it in an Ice cube tray in the freezer then thaw out one cube per meal.

  • We pureed everything we ate and fed the kids. As they got older it was lest pureed and more chopped up.

  • Yeah steam them first otherwise they won't puree well.

  • I just made apples for my guy (I got a fruit basket for Christmas, so I froze some of the extra fruit). I peeled the apples, then boiled them in a couple of inches of water to soften them up. Throw them in the food processor until they're really smooth (smoother than applesauce), then pour it into ice cube trays. Once it's frozen, you can put it in a freezer bag and date it. You can do the same thing with most other fruits and veggies.

    There are some good make-your-own-baby-food groups on here, check 'em out!

  • I just took whatever we were eating and put it in the blender with a little formula.
