Baby Foods D.I.Y

Food needs to be cooked sufficiently (until it's soft enough) so that it can be easily pureed or blend.

If food is dry after pureeing add one of the following:

  • a little liquid from the vegetable
  • breast milk
  • formula milk
  • boiled water
  • or fruit juice

Don’t add salt or sugar to any baby food ( you can add a little bit after baby 6 months)

Prepare vegetables by peeling and cutting into small pieces. Cook in as little water as possible, steaming is best. Then put into the food processor or blender.( I usually steam)

To prepare fruits for cooking, peel and chop into small pieces then steam and put through a food processor or blender.

Meat can be introduced in the form of saltless gravy, or juices added to baby’s vegetables and pureed together.

Cut meat into small pieces and place in a little boiling water. Simmer until cooked, then puree.

Freeze what you don’t use in meal-size portions. Ice cream trays work well for freezing. Once frozen, put frozen lumps into a freezer bag.( i am using freezer container)
