I always wondered how they managed to make the jarred babyfood without preservatives, until one day I was on a mommy blog and I read that jarred babyfood is cooked at 300 degrees! I guess that answers that question! But it has left me with another important question unanswered.... what exactly are our babies eating then?! How can there be any nutrients left afterwards?! So I then decided to explore making my own babyfood, and I haven't looked back!To be honest, despite all of the amazing babyfood recipes out there, I tend to just throw whatever I have available together. So needless to say, this post is not going to be a receipe despite it's location. I actually just wanted to share a few tips and tricks I have picked up along the way to make the meal planning and storage easier! The most obvious of course would be:
* PRODUCT REVIEW!*
There are many different products on the market for any type of budget. When I first started making my babyfood I was using the Baby Bullet that my husband had bought as a gift. After using the product (particularily the storage containers) and dealing with the company, I have to say that I would really recommend that product. HOWEVER,
if you are making your meals in bulk, I would recommend a food processor instead. They are so much faster and smoother! Plus hold way more at at time. I also found that due to the size of the little bullet blender, I was constantly
having to take the lid off in the middle of blending to push the food back down. I would recommend the baby bullet for those who are not planning on bulk preparation but those who are planning on preparing one meal at a time. ie
blending up what ever supper being prepared for the family . Luckily though, you are able to purchase the storage containers seperately through the company, that I would definatly recommend!
