Looking for easy homemade baby food recipes? You cam,e to the right place! I love the idea of making homemade baby food and feeding our kids with things that we prepare ourselves. I have to admit that with my first born, I didn’t really make homemade baby food I just gave her store bought ones most of the time. Well, you live and you learn and so with my twins I took it upon myself to really make it a habit to cook and feed them homemade baby food every time that I could. I was a stay at home mom at this point and so I had the time. I also enjoyed watching my kids enjoy eating their food and making a mess (yeah right!) but you get it.
Stocking up on store bought baby food is a good idea because for days that you don’t feel like making baby food from scratch. Store bought baby food is still good and taste good too. My kids enjoyed both so it was great for me to alternate between the two. Making baby food at home can take time and work, but some recipes are super easy to make.
Like my homemade apple sauce and strawberry mango baby cereal recipe. You can even make them in batch and store them in the freezer for later use. Awesome, right!? I wish I had known about mom blogs back then and about the power of just searching on Pinterest for baby food recipes, it could have helped me a lot!
That’s why I’m sharing with you these easy homemade baby food recipes that you can make today. All of them are quick and easy and are recipes that I know your baby will love.
