How we feed our babies

Baby food in the jar, no way... We tried this with our first child, oh totally gross. Have you tried the baby food in the jar? So after a few jars of baby food, we decided there has got to be something better. What do you get with a miniature food chopper and adult food? Pureed baby food. This way the babies get a wide variety of food and you know exactly what they are eating. We add rice and oatmeal cereal to thicken up the runny pureed food and the babies have alot of variety. I must admit, it is so much cheaper that infant food, but maybe not as convenient for some, but it has not affected our daily routine. What has Soren consumed in the past month: cantaloupe, peas, green beans, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, nectarines, peaches, pears, apple sauce, and rice and oatmeal cereal.

How to: chop the food into small pieces to fit into mini food processor, then puree until thin and pour into bowel, thicken with infant cereal and there you have it. The mini processor is a snap to clean, the blade the bowe and the lid.

I have to agree that jarred baby food is awful! I also bought one jar of it when my oldest was a babe and never again made that mistake.

I have made all of our baby food as well. I make big batches and freeze it in ice cube trays. When it is frozen, popp out the cubes and store in the freezer until use. I love the book Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. She has great ideas and tips.
