Somebody has started loving food! I was always a little apprehensive about starting solid food. It was just the idea of venturing into something new and feeling like I didn’t know what I was doing. It’s been about a month now of consistent food prepping, making and eating. Its is so much FUN! I’m not sure why I was so nervous about it.
I decided I wanted to make all of Noah’s baby food. This is actually one of the easiest things I think I have taken on! I love it and think the whole process is a lot of fun. Since I am a self-proclaimed foodie myself I get a total high making his food. Weird, Ya I know. I just love it. From picking out his organic fruits and veggies, peeling, dicing, steaming, baking, pureeing and freezing. Then popping out those cute little cubes of food into freezer bags. I get excited just thinking about it… 😉
I use wholesomebabyfood.com a lot. They have all the info on homemade baby food.
My Homemade baby food process:
First I peel and dice
Then I steam or bake most fruits and veggies. Iam steaming most of his fruits still, even though I may not always, just so it’s a little easier on his tummy.
Then into the blender it goes
I use these flexible ice cube trays which makes it a little easier to pop them out. I still have to work at it a little and my hands get so cold they feel like they are about to fall off
But when I do get them all out…they are the cutest little things!
Then I dump them all into a labeled bag (just switched to ziploc freezer bags to help with freezer burn) and in the freezer it goes!
I’ve been trying to plan ahead and put all his food for the next day into the fridge to defrost. I do reheat some in the microwave if I have to.
okay maybe it’s just me… but that is the cutest little cube of food ever.
These are about 1 oz. each.
