Our beautiful baby has been eating for a couple of months now. I like to make sure the baby has homemade baby food, but with our family schedule, as he can’t eat all the things we do, I don’t have the time to make it fresh daily.
I have had great success though with making the baby food in bulk and freezing it in portions. This also enables me to be able to take food with us when we are heading out, regardless if it is planned or not, as I always have a stock pile in the freezer.
Easy Steps To Making Homemade Baby Food In Bulk
Chop up a mix of vegetables that the baby can safely eat.
Steam veggies, placing the veggies which take the longest to cook on the bottom.
Once cooked, puree the vegetables. I only puree the vegetables for a few weeks until baby has the hang of eating, then move to mashing the vegetables.
Set aside some food for the current meal.
Use ice trays with lids (these ones are from Tupperware but many seasons ago). Once frozen I then place a couple of cubes into resealable freezer bags and make more batches of different homemade baby food. That way he has variety in his meals through out the week.
