DIY Baby Food

doctor-yumby Nimali Fernando, a.k.a. Doctor Yum

Is your baby getting ready to start solid foods? Consider making your own baby food. It’s fun, economical, and – compared to store-bought baby food – is delicious!

Here are three great reasons why homemade baby food is a great way to start your child on a path to adventurous eating:

[fusion_dropcap boxed=”no” boxed_radius=”” class=”” id=”” color=”” text_color=””]1[/fusion_dropcap] Making baby food allows you to be in charge of the tastes and the textures of foods you offer. If your baby needs time to get used to a certain food, you can combine it with foods she already likes. You can add more or less texture depending on how your baby is progressing, too.

[fusion_dropcap boxed=”no” boxed_radius=”” class=”” id=”” color=”” text_color=””]2[/fusion_dropcap] Making food for your baby trains you as a parent to spend time everyday preparing nourishing whole food for your baby. This habit sets the tone for how you will feed him in years to come.

[fusion_dropcap boxed=”no” boxed_radius=”” class=”” id=”” color=”” text_color=””]3[/fusion_dropcap] Making baby food teaches your baby to eat the same flavorful food that you are eating at mealtime, setting just the right pace for many years of healthy habits.

If you are interested in learning more about introducing and making baby food, check out our “First Foods” class at doctoryum.com.
