Why Make Your Own Baby Food?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many baby food companies try to get to you to buy their product and feed it to your newborn. Do we really know what is in that? Why would we buy that jars of baby food when we can simply make our own, organic food?

It is not as difficult as it sounds to make it at home. For those of us who cannot cook, me included, the thought of making our own baby food is a scary one. How do we know if we’re getting them the nutrition they need? Isn’t it just easier to buy the pre-made baby food?

Yes, the fact stands that is it easier to buy the baby food, but do we really know what is in that? The preservatives they use to make the food be able to live so long on the shelves may harm your baby. At that point, we don’t know any of their allergies. Is it not better to have one food they are trying at a time than to have a weird mix of random fruits and vegetables?

It’s easy to make the baby food yourself. If you have a pressure cooker, it’s even easier. You just pop the food into the bowl, cover it with the lid, and steam the vegetables until it is soft enough to mash and feed to the baby. If you do not have a pressure cooker, you simply put the vegetables in the oven and bake them until they are soft enough to feed to your baby. You can do this with apples and pears too. Another way to make your baby food is to get a food processor. There has recently been a commercial on television for this type of thing, but you do not necessarily need that exact product. Any food processor will do the job just fine. You simply put the food in that you want them to have, and blend until smooth. This way works with any type of food you want to feed to your baby.

Making your baby’s food yourself isn’t difficult, and you get so much more food out of the same price as you do buying the jars from the grocery. It saves well in the refrigerator, so one batch of food will last you more than one day. Making your own food is a good way to save hundreds of dollars. As mothers, we all know that saving here and there is the simple joys of life. Why not save money and feed your child fresh, organic, healthy food instead of the mystery mush that comes in the jars?
