Let The Food Making Begin....

If you know me well, you know I have firm and CrAZY food hoo-doo beliefs. I will skip the lecture and just get straight to the good part which is making all of peebles baby foods myself. I was thrilled beyond measure to get the Beaba as a baby gift from my generous shower hostesses and have been just itching to use it! (you can click here for a previous post on baby food gear reviews)

   If you don't have a Beabe, don't sweat it.. you can use a food processor. The beabe steams as well as purees , so with a food processor you will need to steam your items separately and then puree in the food processor.
Beyond the process, will be food rules , stages and recipes!

Storage:
You can keep home made baby food in the fridge for about 3 days and in the freezer for 3 Months so basically just like Breast Milk!

You can store home made baby food in a variety of containers. You could use old baby food jars, buy some BPA free plastic cubes from Green Sprout, or use ice cube trays and free little cubes and then transfer to a ziplock bag!

Click HERE for a list if items that freeze well.

Opinions differ about when babies should start solids ( 4 or 6 mos) but our Pedi says 6 so ... Peebles will be starting with Stage 1 foods now.


Stage 1 Fruits:

Stage 1 Veggies:

Stage 1 Grains:



 Click HERE to download a spreadsheet with a meal plan for introducing solids. I got that info from wholesomebabyfood.com

I plan to post recipes regularly! Stay tuned!

That kid, I love his smile! He seems like such a happy baby!

Can you give me the lecture on food? I am SO curious and eating up (HA! punny) all the information I can find/hear/read about!

Peebs looks so excited and ready to try the new foods!! He does look a little mal-nourished though. Maybe that's why he's excited? HA-HA-HA!
