Emma Claire started rice cereal about 1 1/2 weeks ago and loved it, so I went ahead and purchased all of the 1st fruits and vegetables to start making her baby food. I have always heard how easy it was, so I decided to go for it. On Friday, Mom and I started the prep work for most of the food and then I finished it all up yesterday. I ran out of ice cube trays, so I found it easier to do smaller batches, get everything frozen and then move onto the next fruit/veggie.
Here are the finished products. Once I froze them, I popped them out of the ice cube trays into their freezer baggies and then I just give her one 'cube' in the morning and one in the evening mixed with 1 Tbsp of rice cereal. So far she has had sweet potatoes and green peas and loves them both.
I just have peaches and I'm going to do avocados as well since they are classified as a 1st fruit/veggie product. I have been using this website Wholesome Baby Food and they have some great recipes. I did not do carrots as they are more complex due to their nitrate levels, so I just bought it off the shelf.
