Do You Really Need Expensive Food Gadgets To Make Homemade Baby Food?

July 17, 2012 Posted by Stacie

Parents that are trying to do the best for their children look towards using recipes to create homemade baby food. Preparing your own baby food at home can help to reduce the preservatives, create inexpensive organic food and prepare enough food for one month in as little as one session.
Do you really need expensive food gadgets designed to chop, puree and store baby food? The simple answer is no. You can get started making your own organic baby food with the tools that you already have in your kitchen.

To puree the food you can use a simple food processor for hard foods, and for softer foods you can simply mash the foods with a fork. Depending on the stage of the infant, you can determine how fine the foods are going to be pureed or mashed. For infants that are having their first tastes of fruits and vegetables, it’s recommended to create a fine puree. When preparing foods for older infants, you can do a rough mash using a fork or food processor – enabling the infant to get their first experience with textures in food.

To store the food, there is no need for expensive baby puree containers. You can store a months’ worth of prepared foods with a simple ice cube tray. Place the foods that have been pureed into the ice cube tray (you can even create combinations of flavors) and place them in the freezer. Once they have been frozen, you can pop the ice cubes out of the tray and place them in freezer bags or in containers to serve when required.

There is no need for expensive baby food gadgets designed to puree and store the foods. You can do everything you need with a simple food processor and ice cube trays stored in freezer bags.
