Random Information Day - DIY Baby Food

       Ick. I hate change, do you like the new blogger set up? I suppose I'll get used to it. Anyway, so here is a totally random and non-crafty post for you. Do you have a baby? Does your baby eat? Mine does, mostly paper, bugs, leaves, and any other non-edible tidbit she can get her chubby little fingers on...but I do try to get actual nourishment into her little self on a daily basis.  Here's how you can make your own baby food!

       Nothing complicated here...Start with your cooked veggie of choice, puree it, pour it into freezer trays, freeze it, and then seal the cubes in labeled Ziploc bags in the freezer. I've not priced it out to the penny, so I don't really know if it is cheaper than buying baby food. I don't see how it couldn't be cheaper, because a squash like I did here, only costs a few dollars. It makes enough squash cubes to last a good little while. I like doing it this way, because I like to know exactly what I'm feeding my kiddo. It's the real deal, so later when I'll plop that same squash in non-pureed form onto her plate, she'll have no issues eating it.

      The little cubes are a handy size for the small portions babies eat. When I'm going out, I just toss a few cubes in a small Tupperware container and take them with me. They are normally melted by the time I need them. I've also done this exact same thing with cooked chicken, I just added a bit of water to thin it out.
       As you know, cooking is not my thing in the least, but even I find this to be a pretty manageable task. =)

Nahum 1:7 The LORD [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that TRUST in him.


  1. I do this too, and I can guarantee it is cheaper, if you're not counting your time! I use a microwave steamer to cook everything and it is so quick and easy!

  2. You can earn $20 for each 20 minute survey!

    Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying me for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So these companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars every month to the average person. In return, the average person, like myself, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.
