Every parent wants to give their baby the best but organic baby food can be expensive and hard to find. If you struggle to find organic baby food that your little one loves… consider making your own!
It can be very reassuring to know what’s in your baby’s food. The best way to do this is by making it yourself. You have full control over what your baby is being exposed to.  Food on the grocery shelf has to be over processed so it maintains a shelf life. Making food yourself is a way to avoid this standard supermarket practice.

There are plenty of books out there that talk about making baby food. Find the one that suits your lifestyle, even if isn’t about making organic baby food. You can tailor the recipes to your lifestyle.

Making baby food does take a little time so it’s always good to make a large amount and freeze some for later. That way you save time later. You can store extra servings in an ice cube tray and pop them out as needed. For parents who prefer avoiding plastic, try small glass jars. You can use them to carry the food when you take it out of the fridge so they do double duty!

Don’t feel like you have to run out and buy new equipment for making baby food. A regular blender works just fine to puree food into a tasty consistency for your little one. All you need to do is steam your ingredients to soften them for blender use.

Making your own organic baby food can be a great experience for you and your baby. Bon Appetit!
