At Barnes & Noble this weekend, I plopped my increasingly plump heinie in an overstuffed chair with a bunch of baby-related texts. My favorite from this particular trip was the book Blender Baby Food by Nicole Young.
Blake and I both love the idea of making your own baby food for several reasons:
- Environmental: less waste on the packaging of store-bought baby food.
- Nutritional: by making the food, we know exactly what baby is eating and we can choose to use organic ingredients as plausible.
- Aesthetic: as Blake said while perusing the baby food aisle of Target, “I can’t expect the baby to eat food that looks like vomit if I won’t eat it.”
- Cost: it’s cheaper to make our own food than getting the individual servings. And we can make a bunch at once and freeze leftovers so it’s not inconvenient.
This book had tons of info, had meals plans for the different months, and lots of easy recipes.
