Any suggestions on recipes, websites, or books for Homemade baby food. My kiddo is 5 months old. We have started rice cereal so next month I want to start her on baby food I make at home I am just preparing for this now.

I also use www.wholesomebabyfood.com and have been for the past 4 months. I love that site. For soft foods like bananas and peaches I just use one of those $10 food choppers and for other things such as carrots or pears I use my blender it works wonderfully. I work full time so I usually spend one day on the weekend making as much food as possible then I freeze it in ice cube trays and usually one have to do it about every 6 weeks.

I use the Super Baby Foods book! It's awesome! It has a ton of information about food and many other things! It's pretty simple making your own baby food though! Good Luck!!

Just another tip:

Make sure when you make carrots that you don't save the water you steamed them in, it explains it on the site too.

homemade baby food is pretty simple, that is why i chose it aswell.

make sure you have a food processor...i bought a mini one for $10 at walmart.

cook the veggies until they are soft, then let them cool and then mush until they are well blended.



here's a basic recipe



60ml (1/4 cup) diced or chopped cooked food

15ml (1 tbsp) liquid such as water that it was cooked in, breast milk, formula.



if too thick, add more liquid.
