Today, more and more moms are choosing to make homemade baby food, passing by the vast array of conventional choices in our supermarkets. To recap Monday’s post, homemade baby food is simply better for your baby, your wallet, and the planet!
Today, we will expand upon this topic by showcasing a variety of time and money-saving tips to create delicious homemade goodness for your little ones.
Preparing your own baby food is quite simple, despite its daunting reputation. It does take a bit of planning and a few hours of your time, but the benefits far outweigh the sacrifice. The result will be a great sense of pride, and more importantly, a happy and healthy baby!
I start with timing because this is where I lose most moms. However, you only have to set aside a maximum of an hour per week to prepare homemade baby food. Some recipes take as little as ten minutes. Most recipes are designed to yield a large amount of food (literally dozens of servings for baby), therefore, your will have a delicious variety of age-appropriate, homemade goodness within a few weeks time. This works well considering you only introduce one food a week to your baby in the beginning.
