Let me warn you, I'm about to get on my soap box for a minute. I make my own baby food. I do not like store bought baby food. Mine is far superior in test, quality, freshness and cleanliness.
Back when I was a little girl, I over heard a conversation between my parents. Apparently, a church member who worked in a Gerber factory said he would never feed his child Gerber food because of how dirty the place was. I immediately decided that I would fix my own food. Have you ever tasted that stuff? It's nasty. Yes, I have resorted to using the jarred food in emergencies, but trust me, I did it with objections! :)
Making your own baby food is so simple and easy. You do not need crazy equipment or baby food cookbooks with exotic recipes. Since my little guy is beginning to eat solid foods, I plan on adding posts to my blog about the adventure. If you have a baby I hope you'll consider joining me as I feed my baby. And please, if you have any questions, please ask me!
As your baby gets older, potatoes are great to mix it in with all types of vegetables like peas, beans, broccoli, and zucchini. You cal also mix them with meats and apple purees.
