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!
