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.
