My little sugar cookie is getting to the point where she does not need all of her food pureed; however, I do still like to puree her some fruit because I love to mix it with bananas or oatmeal, and it is good for on-the-go. It is also pretty and it makes me feel productive, but mainly just the healthy part — okay, mainly just the pretty part.
Making baby food is so simple and very cost effective. There are lots of ways to stick a lot of nutrition into your baby’s belly, but this time around I was just making some fruit. Just wash the fruit, cut it into pieces, and stick it into a really cool orange blender that you got from a garage sale for five dollars. I have these handy freezer trays for the food, but there are lots of alternatives for food storage. This time around I used about 5 peaches and 2 quarts of strawberries. I usually stick one tray in the freezer and one in the fridge.
