Making your own food is a cheap way to control what your baby is consuming. As a breastfeeding mother, I’m used to solely feeding my baby, so introducing solids was difficult for me. By making his baby foods, it helped me maintain some level of control. This week I made him all organic carrots, bananas, and apples for breakfast/lunch and all organic chicken, squash, and sweet potatoes for dinner. I have to mix in apples into his dinner because it isn’t sweet enough for him. Directions on how I make his food below:
- Steam fruit/vegetable: I use my rice maker that is also a steamer. It’s important to note that steaming maintains the most nutrients. Also carrots take a long time to steam.
- By using food processor to make the correct consistency.
- Freeze into ice cube trays.
- Place into freezer bags.
- For the chicken, I boiled one chicken breast.
