Review: My daughter just started on solid foods so I have become more and more interested in making my own baby food. I can both save money and have the peace of mind that comes from knowing exactly what's in it! The So Easy Baby Food Start Kit is perfect for this new adventure. Along with the easy to follow recipes, you will find helpful eating tips and pages where you can write about your child's eating habits.
Do you want to make your own baby food but think you don't have the time? "The Fresh Baby system is designed to be simple and quick." Even busy Moms can squeeze out the 30 minutes per week that it will takes with the So Easy Fresh Baby cookbook.
I recommend watching the DVD before you start, I am a visual learner and it was great to see the process from start to finish. Here are a few things I learned from the DVD:
- You can't over puree baby food (this is a good thing for me)
- All baby food must be cooked except bananas, avocados and tofu.
- You may have to add water when making vegetables but most fruits have enough juice.
- Recommend starting with veggies first because babies have a natural sweet tooth.
The first recipe I made was bananas. I started with this one because it was the easiest. Bananas are only served fresh so I didn't get to use the freezer trays for them. The directions were easy to follow and I got some experience in thinning out the food to the right consistency for my daughter. The next recipe I chose was pears. Making pears gave me the opportunity to go through each of the steps from buying, peeling, heating, pureeing and freezing. It was so easy with the cookbook as a guide and the trays for freezing. I was a little nervous about using the food processor because I have never used one before. That's why I was relieved when I learned that you can't over puree the food! I am very excited about making more food for my daughter. There are recipes for children from about 6 months to over 12 months so this is a book you will want to keep around for months and months.
If you purchase pre-packaged baby food you will spend $300 (on average). When making your own baby food you will spend $55 (on average) for first year. This kit will more than pay for itself! When you make your own baby food you are also able to give your baby a wider variety of foods than are available through store bought baby food.
