Baby {food} makin’

When Emily first started solid foods, I was on a huge baby food makin’ kick!  I attended a class about starting solids and making your own baby food.  I was sold!  I went to the grocery store and bought organic bananas, carrots, and sweet potatoes.  I was really good about making Emily’s food for a couple of weeks. 

Then I got lazy.

I noticed Gerber makes organic baby food in the cutest little tupperware looking containers.  I thought I would just give them a try.  She loved them and they were soooooo easy.  My mom also got her a bunch of them for Easter so I had nice little stash of the Gerber baby food.

I pretty much ran out of the Gerber this past weekend so I decided to give the baby food makin’ another go.  I spent Sunday going through my baby food cookbook. 

I love this book!  It spells everything out for you, gives great tips, and has great baby recipes!  You can find this book here.

On Sunday, I made Emily some apples and pears with cinnamon and some sweet potatoes and broccoli.  She really likes both of them.

I can’t wait to try more recipes from this book!

I felt so much better about feeding Emily yesterday and today.  I have absolutely nothing against the Gerber foods.  Let’s face it, they’re convenient and babies love it!  But, I just feel like I stay home with the little monster so the least I can do is make her a homemade meal every once in a while.  Right?

  1. SOO! You know I am crazy by now, but if you compare the ingredients in Gerber to the ingredients in say Earths Best - you will be shocked! I only give Fisher Earths Best - but I DREAM of making his food!! Do you have processer or puree machine? How can I get started?!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every one of them and work hard to respond to all of them that I can.
