Making Your Own Baby Food!

One of the best ways to save money with your baby is by making your own baby food. It may sound daunting at first. But really it’s super easy, fun, fast, healthy and cheap!

Pictured below are baked sweet potatoes and acorn squash. Baked for 1 hour on 350 degrees. Take the skin off and put into blender and blend for a few seconds. If you do not feel like getting out your blender you can simply use a fork and mash up the vegetables! It’s so easy!

In the blender are boiled organic carrots in 1 cup of water. Boil until soft and then to the blender they go!

Ahhh….the finished product! We made green beans, carrots, mango, acorn squash, corn, apples and sweet potatoes. We made this for 4 babies that’s why there is so much. The amount for each baby should last a month.

The awesome thing about making your own baby food is that all of the veggies and fruit cost less than $20 and will feed 4 babies for a month! Not only that but, it’s SO much healthier. You made it yourself. You know exactly what’s in it!

Thanks a ton to Keri and Tiffany for all of their hard work!
