  • Oh it is so easy! Avacado is a great first food. Just peel it, cut it up, and mash it with a fork. My daughter LOVED it. Banana is also really easy. Other veggies like carrots and peas you just have to steam to make them soft and then mush them up. You can even give her peas without mushing them (she'll have fun squeezing them and putting them in her mouth. Messy but fun).

    Basically any fruit or veggie that you can mush up (either raw or by steaming them first) is good to try. Sweet potato, squash, carrots, peas, bananas, apples, kiwi, avacado, etc. The list goes on and on.

    Have fun with it! Making your own baby food is so much healthier and less expensive! Plus I'm told it tastes better too. hehe

  • The best way to make homemade baby food is to use a food processor. Use fresh fruits and careful not to use should buy those in the baby food jars. As carrots grown in different regions can have certain problems due to the soils. The baby food companies are aware of the "right" carrots to use. It is easy, inexpensive and very rewarding to know that the little ones are eating right...and you made it for them.

  • A friend of mine used to puree it and freeze it in ice trays wrapped in cellophane. Perfect size little meals!

  • My sister-in-law gave me this book called "Super Baby Food" which was great. It had hundreds of recipes from first meals to more complex meals. But, for the most part, to begin, pick your veggies, steam them, then puree them. Both my girls enjoyed peas first.
