Now that Passover is behind us, its much easier to focus on the babies in our lives.
Choosing to make homemade baby food is a great way to contribute to a baby’s early health. Starting them off on the right foot nutritionally will help set the stage for healthy eating habits in the future. Use fresh, organic produce where possible, and opt for no salt added, preservative free frozen produce where fresh is not available.
Making homemade baby food will allow parents and caregivers to have complete control over what goes into a baby’s meal, leaving no doubt of all-natural ingredients. Remember that making homemade baby food isn’t only nutritious and delicious for baby, it’s a snap to prepare!
There are countless combinations of fruits and vegetables that can be pureed together to make homemade baby food. Once the baby has shown she is tolerant of a certain food, begin to combine this food with other safe foods and offer new flavour combinations.
