Homemade Baby Food
Cara J Mastrangello
This is just a "guideline" recipe for making soft baby food that is nutritious and yummy!
The "measurements" get me approx 4-5 days of meals, depending on how hungry my lil man gets.
- 6-8 c
- fresh fruit, vegetables, potatoes, or chicken
- container yogurt (i use lactose-free)
- 1 box
- dry baby cereal (i use earth's best whole grain)
I typically boiled or steamed the ingredients so they were very soft.
Drain and set aside to cool, reserving a few cups of the water.
Process until smooth. Depending on what your are making (such as chicken, potatoes, carrots) you will need to add some liquid to smooth it out. Just remember that less is more, its easy to put too much in and make it watery.
4 parts veggies/fruit/meat to 1 part yogurt. Stir well and add a tablespoon or two dry baby cereal.
Do not mix yogurt and baby cereal until ready to feed.
