I made zucchini baby food last February for Baby J and it went over pretty well but I had to thicken it with baby cereal in order to make it the right consistency since zucchini holds a lot of water. Today I decided to thicken it up with peas instead and it totally worked.
Three kids in and I’m guilty of still learning new things. I’m not saying that broadening one’s education is ever a bad thing, but ignorance isn’t bliss to a mom who’s trying to do everything right and sometimes you learn things just a little too late.
As I mentioned in my last baby food post, Baby Food (Zucchini), I made some other baby foods the other day including this one. Broccoli is a really good food to feed to babies due to the fact that it is high in vitamin content and fiber. However, because broccoli can cause gas it’s not recommended for babies under eight months of age and is certainly not a wonderful choice for baby’s first vegetable as it can be a bit tough to digest.
Yesterday morning I spent a bit of time in the kitchen restocking the baby food section in our freezer. We already had some protein packed containers in there, but we were lacking breakfast foods and others.
Yummm, apples with strawberries.
The last time I made a big batch of baby food was about a month ago. In between big batches I tend to make little batches of whatever produce we have lying around, like apples or carrots. Today was time to refill the freezer…
The other day I made four batches of baby food including carrots (previously posted), sweet potatoes, apples and a combination of apples, blueberries and chicken.
