    Default How do I make my own babyfood?

    I don't have much time to search through this thread for an answer that I am sure is there, but my 5 mo DD is ready to eat. I swear she looks like she is going to jump up and grab my food! So I want to start feeding her some baby food but with all of the allergies out there I am soooo scared. I heard no rice cereal so I don't know if I should follow that or not. I decided to just start to make my own baby food. Any suggestions on how to make it. I heard when you cook the vegetables it takes out all the good nutrition so should I not do that? Thanks for the help!

    Steaming veggies helps to retain their nutrients since they aren't sitting in a bath of water. You can cook veggies until soft, mix up in blender, food processor or foodmill and add liquid until the consistency you want-BM or water (if you boil veggies use some that water to put nutrients back in). Soft fruits like banana and avacado are easy to mash up. You can cook in batches, freeze cubes of veggies in an ice cube tray then pop out and store in a freezer bag. Defrost in refrigerator by taking out of the freezer how many cubes you think baby will eat that day first thing in the morning.
