Okay, so after much consideration and talking with a few good friends, I have decided to make homemade baby food this time. I never even thought of it with Luke. I just bought everything, no coupons, no worries about price. I am always striving to be more financially responsible, plus homemade baby food is healthier (less processed).
I started today with sweet potatoes. I bought a couple of sweet potatoes for under $1.00.
Here's the recipe I used:
Baby Food – Sweet Potatoes
1) Wash sweet potatoes.
2) Poke with a fork.
3) Wrap in aluminum foil.
4) Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
6) Puree with some water in a food processor.
After it cooled a bit, I put a heaping tablespoon into ice cube trays and am freezing it for future use.
I am pretty excited that it was that easy and was way less expensive than traditional jarred baby food.
