One of the easiest things to do for you is your food baby. It's inexpensive, healthy food and helps the transition to the big guy. With food preparation, storage and processing is the key. Buy fresh, natural ingredients, for your kindness in giving your child to maximize!

What you need:

Food processor, blender or food mill (or whatever you have great food grinder)
– A pair of medium and large vessels
– 4Ice holder robust
– Disposable Bag Ziplock Bag
– Over 2 hours of your time

Some tips:

Some vegetables such as green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, cauliflower and have a lot of water. Add water slowly to the mashed potatoes. You can always add more, but you can not get out!
Carrots, squash, zucchini and potatoes are the exact opposite. You may need extra water for mixing. Just use the filtered water.
Mix your pumpkins after the mixing and cooking. pumpkin pumpkins takemore than the cook yellow or zucchini.
The fruits are filled with water. Do not add water to the consistency or sound "blocked" is to be seen.
Do not forget to introduce, onions and garlic, if you get a good group of foods in rotation.
Try not to add ¼ – ½ teaspoon of salt or sugar when water or steam. Children are immature taste buds and the natural sugars and salts are more than enough for them. And there is no honey at all before 1 year!

Ok, you're ready to go. Let'sStart from the beginning! First food: carrots, green beans, pumpkin, potatoes (sweet or white), and fruit. Carrots, green beans and pumpkin (I use pumpkin or because they are sweeter and texture similar to a sweet potato): I personally start with the vegetables. Then I got the potatoes and fruit. Then I introduce the flavors such as onions, celery and garlic. Until then, it's time for proteins.

Choose 2 vegetables and 1 fruit. Perform a new fruit or vegetable or protein (protein after 9Months!) Any cooking. Make sure that the other 2 are already very large jelly. Peel and cut vegetables or fruit you are working. Pumpkin Pumpkins are a chore to peel. Using a potato peeler and buy small at first, until you get the hang of cutting, peeling and coring.

Chop the vegetables and boil them in water that barely covered, until easily pierced with a knife. You can use a steamer, but it will take much longer cooking time to achieveConsistency, smooth puree. Personally I am waiting to start steaming before introducing finger food.

After the race, tribe reserve a large bowl or pot water. Let cool for about 5 minutes to fill your blender (or grinder), about ½ full. Add 1 / 8 cup water and mashed vegetables. If the mixer has a mouth to the anus. Otherwise, the pulse of the food and just lift the lid between pulses in order to release the steam. Mix the food until it is smooth andTurn in circular motion in depth. Food mills are great because you get this extra smooth texture with little to no water.

The mixture into an ice cube tray. Refrigerator for about 30 minutes. After cooling, freezing cubes to drive (usually overnight). Pop it out, your brand of hermetically sealed and put the dice in their pockets. Ta-da, baby food!

Each cube is about 1 ounce Three dice are about 1 small jar. I spend about 4 hoursevery 3 weeks for the preparation of food. I usually have to split it in two days and try to do six things, (2 vegetables, 1 fruit per session). Once you have a few options, Shake It Up. You must not do beans every time. Just make sure that at least two vegetables, a carburetor (ie sweet potato) and a protein (for now). Use the food you make in 2 months.

Finally, no project. You have no idea what he likes and dislikes. Just because you do not touch yellowSquash with a stake of 10 feet, does not mean they are not vegan in the making. It goes through phases like we do. You can love for a while ', then to hate a bit'. Keep trying. It will soon be able to be in their food from the right side of the table (for the first 9 months or 1 year!). Happy cooking!
