Hi everyone! My name is Laura and I'm new. I have a 5 year old and a 6 month old. My 6 month old would really like to eat table food. Does anyone out there make their own baby food....the store kind is going to break me! I appreciate any tips or ideas! Thanks so much!

Oh Laura, it's so wonderfully easy-you won't have a bit of trouble! It's basically something you can make up as you go along. Start with veggies. Take carrots for example: microwave steam them until soft, puree them in blender or food processor & spoon into ice cube trays. Freeze. Once frozen, pop into freezer bags & whenever you need them, there they are already in perfect baby-portions! & all-natural! I've done it with spinach, cauliflower, peas, carrots, broccoli, beans, beets, potatoes, you name it! Then, when baby has mastered veggies, move on to fruit. Cooked, non-salted or heavily spiced food also is great in the food processor, depending on how soon you want to start baby on what.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Thanks, Rebecca! I think I will start trying to do that...how do you thaw the food, on the countertop or in the microwave? Thanks again!
