Ecotot: Homemade Baby Food

Having grown up in California, I've been spoiled by fresh food. So, when it came time to feed my babies soft solids, I opted for the most appealing and pure, glass-bottled brands I could find like Earth's Best and Healthy Times. Though my husband was the official taste tester in our family, I had a hard time feeding my kids jarred food. And, pureeing the baby food myself was too time consuming.

Luckily, I discovered Homemade Baby, a line of freshly prepared, kosher, and organic baby food that comes in refrigerated recyclable grab-and-go containers and were convenient for our on-the-go lifestyle.

Offering three stages — So Smooth for babies 6–8 months old, Good Mushy for babies 9–12 months old, and Kinda Chunky for children over a year, the selections — Just Peas, Piwi (pears and kiwi), and Yummy Yammies (a combination of yams, lentils and other veggies), cost just a bit more than the shelf-stored organic brands and taste great.

I too suggest the home made food,making baby food is time consuming but more than that we should give much care on making own baby food.The baby food must contain the essential things for the development of child in every phase.We need to include nutrition food in his menu.I found contains some essential information helpful for making baby food.I used to feed both my own food and from the store so he is gaining benefits from both.

I thought that making baby food was time consuming until I started to do it. Its much cheaper and my son likes it way better. Just boil or bake an then mush or blend.I even saved my plastic gerber containers from when i wasnt feeding him so I dont even need ice trays. I have meal sized frozen containers and it takes 30 seconds to thaw an maybe 2 minutes to feed ;)

I try to make my own baby food as well, but like to buy the jar foods (organic of course) for those times when we're out and about and when I don't have a fridge/freezer near by. also my little one tends to like jarred peas over my home made peas and vice versa on the apple sauce.

we almost alway made our own, too. freezing it in ice cube trays was the key to keeping the labor manageable. these would be great for traveling!

I want to make my own food but if it becomes too time consuming I'll be sure to give these a try.

My kids never liked store bought baby food so I made my own.

You can make your own, too. I thought it would be hard, but it's not. Just boil the veggies plain. Then blend in a blender or food processor and put them in ice trays. When they harden, just pop them out and heat up 1 or 2 cubes per serving. You can totally control the thickness too by the amount of water you put in. Or you can just read "Super Baby Food."
