A good food processor for introducing solids??

[deleted account] ( 8 moms have responded )

my daughter is 8 months and i have only played around with letting her try soft foods like banana, avocado, etc. i want to start introducing actual meals of solid foods with foods that i can process myself at home. we bought an inexpensive processor at target but it just made a mess of liquid and huge clumps of food.... it didn't evenly puree things into a smooth mush.



any suggestions of a good processor?



or recipes/foods to begin with?

I just use my blender. I take frozen organic foods let them thaw blend with water and freeze them in ice cube trays! Easy to portion that way!! Good luck

We have the Vita Mix blender as we do huge amounts of foods on the weekend for the week. It was expensive but well worth it! You can even put the skins of fruits and veggies. We started with introducing mashed bananas, avocados, peas, carrots etc. We now mix all kinds of things. Here is a great website www.wholesomebabyfood.com have fun!

I have the magic bullet. Introduce these foods to your 8 Month old: apricot, apple , cantaloupe, honeydew melon, grapes(peeled and quartered, not whole grapes) kiwi fruit, plums, watermelon, broccoli, okra, cooked parsley, tahini(a super healthy spread made form ground sesame seeds), finely ground nuts, powdered kelp, natural cheese, cooked crumbled egg yolk. Just some ideas :)

I also love my magic bullet. It is great for pureeing foods, sadly, that is all its good for, which is not what the commercials claim

At eight months your daughter is more than capable of having table food. Just give her what you're having. Save yourself the money.

p.s. i give my kids what we eat. I started with fruits and veggies and then simple plain foods, chicken, oatmeal, etc before I started combining things

We have a magic bullet. My son is handicapped and eats mostly pureed food and this does a great job, and does it fast. Easy to clean and doesn't take up a lot of counter space.
