Homeade Baby Food

I was pretty good about making the girls' food when they were babies, but poor baby Lincoln has gotten the short side of the pureed stick on this one. But I've been recently re-inspired (mainly by the poor guys bouts with constipation) to get in the kitchen and do a little cookin for my babe.

Pinterest is such an AMAZING source for baby food recipes, so I took to it. I found and fell in love with Not only are the recipes creative and delicious but the photos are beautiful!

So here is what I came up with! And I must say, I tasted everything I made and it's SO GOOD!

The chicken, I cooked in a pan with reduced sodium chicken broth. The last few minutes I threw in some frozen peas so they could cook a bit. I blended them all up using the cooking liquid to thin.

The sweet potatoes I roasted in the oven for 40 minutes or so, scooped them out and blended up using the chicken stock from above to thin.


The beef, I used a high quality ground beef and cooked in beef broth. Again, use the cooking liquid to thin as you blend it up.

I was able to find prunes in the bulk section at our local grocery store, I heated up some water in the microwave and let the prunes soak for 10 minutes or so. Blended using some of the water from soaking. 

It's so fun to create different combinations, and it's super gratifying to feed your growing little babe some homemade food.

I have some more recipes in the works, I'll keep you posted on them.
