One of the first foods for a young child is a canned baby food that is typically store bought. The food is pureed as newborns are not yet able to chew. However, buying foods from a grocery store is not the only option for parents. One solution is to make homemade baby food by using fruits and vegetables.
The key to making homemade baby food is proper preparation. This includes the types of fruits and the vegetables you want to use for servings of food. The best option is to find items that are organic because they do not have any chemical treatments applied like commercially grown products. A local supermarket will be one place to look for ingredients to make homemade baby food.
A few pieces of equipment are needed for this project. You will need a steamer to make your vegetables soft and a blender or food processor to create a suitable puree. These can easily be found at most retail stores that sell kitchen supplies needed to make homemade baby food. If you have any of these items in your kitchen, then you are all set to begin this project.
You have the option to use your homemade baby food right away or to have a supply that will last for an entire week. Freezing is the best option to keep your baby food until it is needed. A mold is used to have the single size serving for your baby food. Ice cube trays are an excellent option.
Frozen servings of baby food can easily be thawed in your microwave when needed. You can keep all the servings of baby food in a plastic freezer bag or in a freezer safe container. The one detail that might be difficult for most people is deciding on which recipes to use to make homemade baby food.
