How to Make Homemade Baby Food

I knew that I wanted to make my own baby food as soon as I knew I was pregnant. There is so much sugar and extra unnecessary additives in jar baby food, I didn't want to risk it. So far, I've made bananas, squash (the hardest of them all because of all the seeds), and now carrots. I am so proud of myself that I have to pat my own self on the back. I am getting the hang of this and loving every second of it.

How I made Carrot Baby Food:

  1. Peel Carrot, washed throughly, and cut in half (first photo)
  2. Steam Carrot until soft (Since I don't have a steamer. This is what I did: I put the carrot on a metal slotted spoon, added a little water to a pot, and balanced the spoon over the water making sure it did not touch, and cover the pot with a lid. It worked perfectly! (second photo)
  3. Added Gerber Rice Cereal, Freshly Pumped Breast Milk and Carrots to my Nutri Bullet and blended til it was nice and pureed
  4. Here is the end result (below)
