SO while I was pregnant and actually probably before I was pregnant I had decided I wanted to make my own baby food. I have seen and smelled jarred food and was honestly completely disgusted by it.
I came across this blog Styleberry Blog and besides the fact that she is awesome she had a really awesome post about making her baby food. I am very much a visual person and she has this video that shows step by step her process. After watching that and reading her food post I was completely sold 100%!
I have only done sweet potatoes and pumpkin so far as that's all we have tried, I plan to do a big shopping trip soon to stockpile my freezer with different foods for him for when we get to them.
The sweet potatoes were beyond easy, All I did was wash them, poke holes in them and wrap them in foil then bake on 400 for 30-45 minutes...be sure to watch them so they don't overcook. Once they are done just scoop the meat out of the skin and put into the blender (I used the magic bullet) with some water and puree adding more water depending on the thinness you want. I then put it into ice cube trays and into the freezer.
Shawna of Styleberry blog recommends these ice cube trays, and so do I. Each cube is an ounce so its good to keep track of how much baby eats and also it makes storage so much more space efficient since the cubes line up perfectly in a gallon size freezer ziploc.
I was initially very intimidated by the pumpkin but I thought the health benefits for L outweighed the scaredness of me haha. In reality it wasn't hard at all. To start, I cut the pumpkin in half then scooped out the innards
Wholesome Baby which is a fantastic resource.
Once again, the process was so easy and I actually tasted both things which they were both tasty, I honestly would not really expect my child to eat something that is foul tasting, I honestly taste everything I give him!
