Making a wholesome food for your baby is better than buying those baby foods that are commercially sold in the market. While it was advertised that it’s organic and safe, you really don’t know the amount of sugar they put in it. So to be safe for your baby’s well-being, why don’t you make your own baby food for you little one? It’s even more nutritious since you know that there is no additive in his/her food, it’s way more cheaper than store-bought baby food, and it is fun making them.
You can even use a wide variety of fruits and vegetable in making them, you can use broccoli, spinach, banana, sweet potato, potato, apples, peach, avocado, carrots, and a lot more. You just have to ask your child’s pediatrician to know what fruits, vegetable, grains, and protein he/she need for one’s age. For example, if your child is 6 months old and your pediatrician told you that apples is a good starter food for him then grab some in the market, wash them in running water, slices them into cubes, steam or boil them, and puree it using your hand blender or your regular blender.
Making them every day makes them fresh to eat by your little one, but if you’re like me whose time is the enemy then making them every day is such a tremendous task and such a time consuming activity that you just have to make them by batch. Just do the same routine but in a large amount, so instead of slicing just half of the apple, make some apple puree that has a whole apple turned into puree.
After you process them into puree, put them on a baby food storage container and let them cool down to room temperature, then put them on the freezer for the next couple of days, just thaw and reheat them every time your child eat some. Speaking of baby food storage container, you might think that the empty store-bought baby food jar is okay for you to use but almost all of them is not fit for high temperature such as freezer and they’re not microwaveable.
So you need to find some storage container for your baby’s food that is not only freezer friendly but also microwaveable but selecting the perfect product for your little one can be a tremendous task, especially if you are just guessing game with what’s the best. So, for you to get the right one we researched the best product that can help you in choosing the product that would fit you and your baby’s need.
