How to Make Organic Baby Food
Giving a healthy diet to your baby should be the top most priority for you as a parent. You can find a number of products in the market which are specially formulated to babies at tender age and those who have just started to take diet other than milk. However, you can save some money by making organic food for your baby at home and be sure you are giving your child a healthy and hygienic diet. This won’t require any extra effort from you or much of your precious time.
Before proceeding, you have to sterilise the containers in a dishwasher or a steriliser. Try to choose small containers so that you can prepare fresh food every time, rather than preserving large quantities of food for days.
Purchase fresh fruits or vegetables and choose the fully ripened ones. You can also opt for frozen fruits if you are looking for the ones out of season.
Wash out and clean the fruits and veggies properly. Peel them and remove any rotten parts present.
Steam the vegetables in a bit of water. You can also cook them up in a microwave after adding small amount of water to them. Fruits need not to be cooked.
Mash the contents in a food processor to obtain a smooth paste. You can add warm water if it appears too thick for your baby to eat.
Pour a single serving in the sterilized every time and freeze the remaining immediately.
You can simply make a Banana-Cado baby food in less than 10 minutes to feed your baby. Peel the avocado and bananas, and mash them with a fork.
Put the pastes into a food processor and make a smooth, chunk-free puree for your baby.
Pumpkin Puree is also one of the most common organic baby foods you can make at home. You have to cut the pumpkin in half and clean up the seeds to start the process.
Take a baking pan and place the pumpkin half face down in it, covered with 1 to 2 inches of water.
Put the pumpkin in a microwave and bake for 40 minutes at 400 degree. When you can see wrinkles on the pumpkin’s surface, take it out of the oven.
Mash out the pumpkin or make a puree after removing any remaining seeds.
