Cheap Baby Food

Post by Hayley Campbelton on Tue Feb 19, 2008 6:57 am

I found that buying 2 sweet potatoes and 1 cauliflour, cook them both off as you would normally and mash/blend them together. Put the contents into an ice cube tray and freeze. My son really loved this and its easy plus its a bit healthy aswell. He used to have between 2-3 per meal to start.

I made all of Seph's fruit and veg to start, I went out and bout 6 ice cube trays and lots of tupperware containers, and then I steamed and pureed all different veg, brocoli, cauliflower, parsnips, swede, green beans, courgette, sweet potatoe, Carrots, apple and pear (Although not veg) I would steam them and blend them and store them in ice cube trays individually and then move them into the containers to leave the trays free to make more, I would mix and match to make different meals up and as his appetite increased I just added a cube or two. I found this so cheap and we eat all these things so we didn't have to buy them especially.

Am I right t hinking they can't have meat until after 6 months?
Did you then start to add stuff like Lasangne as you were eating it to the vegetables then?

to be honest Seph is only just 6 months and had just started meat when he got a tummy bug so we've had a few Jars, but not made head way into that yet. I have made and frozen chicken, potatoe, broc and cauliflower as we had it and it made sense (I don't cook with salt) But my plan was to keep going with the veg and make things like Casseroles etc and just add the meal and a few cubes of veg, but not sure how this will work out yet. When Seph was having 3 large meals a day I did buy Jars to give him one meal of home cooked and one meal of shop bought to add a little variety as he was weaned at 4 months and thought he might get bored (And it's bloody hard work making all that food!)
