Easy Homemade Baby Puree

As a mom of a 5 month old baby, I always want to make sure that what I feed him is healthy and no preservatives. So, I decided to make my own baby puree. Home made baby food is nutritious and economical,  and I know what's in it.  Here's how to make a fresh and easy homemade  food that your growing baby will enjoy. You can make it for your friend's baby as a gift too.



                                                                                              What you need:



3 cups Butternut Squash
2 cups Sweet Potato
2 cups Zucchini 
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice






Procedure:

  • Wash the vegetables, peel(except zucchini,just cut both ends off) and slice in cubes.
  • Place sliced vegetables on a baking tray, roast it to 425 F for 45 to 55 minutes(depending on how thick you sliced them).
  • Put the roasted vegetables on your baby food blender, add the pumpkin pie spice, add a little bit of hot water to loosen the thickness. Blend until creamy.
  • Place them on an ice tray or any baby food freezer tray and freeze.
  • After freezing, put them in a zip lock bag, label it with the names of vegetables and date of when it was made. Store it in the freezer, It should be good for 3 months.

  1. Awesome and that's honestly the best way to go! I didn't even have a blender back when I had my son :( but I make homemade chicken nuggets and never feed them to my son unless I make them. :) I make a lot of things homemade these days. It's so good! lol

  6. I love, love, love to see this! People seem to be so intimidated by making their own baby food, when in fact it's the easiest thing in the world.
