This little sweetie likes to eat! I started her on cereal at 5 months, then added fruits & veggies a few weeks later. Most days, she really enjoys her food!
When Alex was little, I made almost all of his baby food. It was mainly for the sake of saving money. I planned to do the same when Max was small, but on the day that I tried, our blender exploded and sent shards of plastic all around the kitchen. So much for that plan! He was our Gerber baby. :)
We have a new blender now, so out came the bags of frozen veggies! The boys were all excited to help. We steamed the veggies, then tossed them into the blender with a little rice milk and some brown rice cereal. (Why? I don’t know! That’s just how I do it.)
Alex lined up the old Gerber containers, I filled them, and Max put on the lids. Who knew that making baby food would be a fun family activity?
For approximately $3, we made 14 containers of vegetables for Jensyn. I’d say it’s worth the 30 minutes we spent on this project!
And Jensyn? Well, she’s glad we did it, too!
