Home Made Baby Food – February

Making your own baby food is a huge money saver not to mention a healthier option than jarred food. I have made my own baby food for both of my boys. The only equipment you need is a blender or food processor, a few ice-cube trays and some Ziploc bags. Last weekend I made green beans, avocado and banana and butternut squash. It took me a total of 1 hour and then a few minutes to pop the frozen baby food cubes in freezer bags. Now I have a month’s worth of meals for my little guy.
