(I received this book via bloggingforbooks in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own)
My biggest goal for my sweet little girl since before she was born has always been to give her a more natural and healthy lifestyle. Up until now I’ve been super excited about feeding her solids and trying new menu choices that I didn’t do with my boys because let’s face it, I did what my mom told me to do-which is not a bad thing- now I have my own style to bring forth.
Feeding my baby has been a joy to watch. Seeing her pucker lips and twitch her nose to new textures and tastes assures me that she is growing up. She’s 5 1/2 months old now and so far we have tried ground oatmeal, avocado, bananas, sweet peas, sweet potato and apple sauce.
My hubby and I’s number one goal throughout this process has been to feed fresh. All of the foods that we’ve introduced to our baby girl have been fresh and locally grown/produced and prepared by me. We didn’t want any additives or things we couldn’t pronounce. Along with this we give a tri vitamin that includes iron.
When I got make ahead baby food by I was excited to review it. This book is a simple and easy guide that comes with practical tips on preparing foods fresh for your baby and freezing them for later serving. It includes guides on how to prepare as well as menu plans and tips on how and when to introduce new foods. It also has a section on foods that compliment each other well.
This book was really helpful in my make ahead process in fact I’d go as far as saying it will make it to my recipe book section for reference. I most like how it breaks down why you need to go through certain steps and with the help of this book I’ve frozen things like avocado, mango, sweet pea blends etc in ice cube trays and my OXO baby food containers. All of these foods have frozen well.
I’m curious to know what others are feeding their baby’s and how. Would you let me know?
