DIY Baby Food

We all know preservatives are really really bad for you.

Have you thought about what you giving your babies?  Commercial baby food has to be processed and preserved.  That precious little thing is so fresh and young, and what do we do? Shove preservatives in their mouth- usually unintentionally, we just don't think about those things.

Not only that but the mark up on baby food?! Ridiculous!!!

It's not hard or really time consuming to DIY, not to mention so cheap. All you need is a blender (or even better a magic bullet or equivalent) and your baby can have fresh nutritious food in flash.

It only takes about 2-3 minutes.  Fill the bullet with a bit of water and add veggies.  Steam them in the microwave and blend. -That easy.

Or you can make a big batch and fill ice cube trays.  When frozen dump 'em out into a zip-lock bag.  Label the bag. -Repeat with more fruit and veggies.

Parents has created this easy guide to help along the way if you need it.  If you have a baby check it out.

May your baby be healthy too!
