    Wink homemade foods

    Hi just wanted to know what foods everyone makes at home. I have been giving DS pears, peaches, strawberries, blueberries,bananas, sweet potatoes..etc. But what other veggies does everyone make??? Just wondered. I freeze and store too. Also when do you start meats??

    Thanks

    I use this site for making my own food. It has anwers to just about any question you could have. So when I want to introduce a food I just go on there and find out the best way to prepare it. For veggies, I've made peas, green beans, and sweet potato. I think you can start meat really any time, but my pedi's handout said to wait until 8 months so I think I'll do that.

    I have my homemade food routine down to a science (for now, until he grows into another stage ). In one evening I make every meal for the week, except breakfast is just fruit, oatmeal and bm, so I can't make that ahead of time. But for lunches and dinner, I make two different meats (beef, chicken, turkey or wild-raised salmon), green veggies (peas, broccoli, zucchini), other veggies like butternut squash, carrots, sweet potatoes), and mix it with some beans for extra protein and some butter/olive oil for some good fats in various combinations, then freeze them. Each container will have some from each group. I steam all the green veggies at once in a colinder over water in the stove, then all the other veggies together, etc. I bake the meat. Anyhow, this works great for us. Just defrost for a few minutes and there ya go
