We're almost 2 weeks into solid foods with our baby. I have gone ahead and made my own babyfood. It is very simple. The other day I made green beans.
First step: I went to the farmer's market and bought some organic, pesticide and chemical free green beans.
I got home and washed them:
Then I cut off the stems:
And put the green beans in the steamer:
After they were very well done I put them in the blender:
Then made the sure the baby was napping (he's scared of the blender):
I added the right amount of water (leftover from the steaming) to get the consistency right. I pureed them, then poured them into icecube trays:
Froze them overnight:
Popped them out of the icecube tray and into a marked freezer bag:
So far my son has had avocado, sweet potato, peas, plums, and oatmeal cereal in that order. Next up will be the green beans!
