Why Homemade Baby Food?

Homemade baby food recipes

One of the best things about making your own baby food is that you get to save a lot of money! It's much cheaper cooking your baby's food than it is buying jars. The food is fresh, tastes far much better, looks wonderful and smells delicious.

You can make your own food combinations based on what your baby really likes. Baby learns to appreciate good home tasting food at a young age and accepts the family is taste in food without much effort. Home cooked food is definitely the best food for babies as it is made by you with lots of love.

You do not need to cook everyday. Just pick a day that is good for you. We picked Saturday as our baby food cooking day, cooked a variety of easy baby foods and froze them.

A Few Helpful Tips Before You Start

  • You will need a suppply of good baby food storage containers.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before handling ingredients and equipment.
  • Wash all the vegetables and fruits thoroughly before preparation.
  • Invest in a good blender. I tried quite a few of them before I hit the jackpot with this Hamilton Beach food processor.
  • It is always best to steam vegetables and fruits rather than boil them as steamed food retains most of the nutrients.
  • You must use a separate good quality cutting/chopping boards for meats and vegetables to avoid cross-contamination.
  • Always wash hands thoroughly after handling uncooked chicken and clean the work surface you used as raw chicken (chicken juices and even undercooked chicken) can cause serious food poisoning.
  • Above all, consult your pediatrician before introducing solids to your baby.
