Homemade Baby Food

Does anyone have any yummy baby food recipes they would like to share?

  1. I have gotten a bunch of recipes from Weelicious (http://weelicious.com – and I think she has a book out now too). I also really liked Top 100 Baby Purees and The Best Homemade Babyfood on the Planet.

    We did a mix of purees and baby led weaning, so my favorite “recipe” was putting chunks of food on my son’s tray or in a mesh feeder and letting him have at it!

    1. I loved this mesh feeder, too. Really neat!

  2. Awesome! I spent over 5 hours today cooking up a storm. We now have a freezer fully stocked with goodies. 🙂 I purchased the Top 100 Baby Purees 🙂

    1. Wonderful – isn’t it great how you can make a bunch and freeze it and have it for weeks? I used to love how much money I would save doing that. Let us know how your baby enjoys your recipes 🙂

    2. I used to do the same thing! Only cooked once a month, and it was so easy to heat up the 1 oz pods.

  3. Mamas, can you recommend some of your favorite food saving containers? There are so many out there and I’d love to know what you are using?

    1. I use the Annabel Karmel containers. They are great! They are easy to stack one on top of the other in the freezer and pop out the frozen food when you need it. I also have the Beaba Babycook to steam and puree the food. It makes preparing the fruits and veggies incredibly easy. Once my little one can have meat, I use the stovetop and puree in the blender. As weird as this may sound, I really enjoy making her food. It’s almost like a stress reliever for me. 🙂

    2. I would freeze my purees in regular ice cube trays and then when frozen transfer to ziplocs. The night before I would pull out a few and let them defrost in a bowl in the fridge.

      As for other types of homemade foods (fish sticks, fish patties, mini meat loaves etc), I just used the large plastic containers that I bought for storing my frozen BM storage bags. I would use wax paper so I could store a bunch in one container and would then defrost/reheat in a separate glass container.

      Whatever you pick, be sure to label and date everything! I have more than once had to play What the Heck is This and Was it Made Over a Year Ago??? and had to toss stuff when I forgot to label!
