Feeding your baby doesn't mean separate cooking, or purchasing canned baby food. Family foods are fresher and much more healthy for your baby or toddler.
Prepare regular family meals and then process your baby's portion in a blender. Saves time, work and money, and also makes it easier to introduce new foods! Use the recipes below as a basic guide, preparing your own combinations from the food your family is eating.
Junior or Toddler Foods
When feeding your infants, place an amount appropriate to what they will eat in a separate dish, and discard what remains after feeding. Ever wonder why your mother told you not to eat or drink out of food containers? The reason is because your saliva will contaminate the food, as it promotes bacteria.
Put ingredients into blender. Process at puree until smooth. To test for smoothness, rub a small amount between your fingers. If any large particles can be felt, process again.
Add full amount of liquid for very young babies - - decrease amount as child grows older.
