Having a Baby Changes Everything!
Even the Way You Eat
From the moment you lay eyes on your little one, your whole world changes — for the better. You realize suddenly that it's not all about you anymore and you pledge to do everything in your power to raise this little human to be healthy, strong and kind and caring; and smart and curious and all the things that we parents want for our kids. You know instinctively that you want to do everything you can to give your child the best start in life.
You pace the floor at night getting your baby to sleep, baby-proof your home, and spend endless hours breast or bottle feeding. When your baby is finally ready to begin eating solid foods, you want to give him or her the best nutrition possible.
While the thought of making your own homemade baby food might seem attractive, you’re probably wondering how you could possibly find the time—and energy.
After all, you live in the real world. You’ve got a home, a job, other family responsibilities. And finding time to sleep would be nice, too - right!
So why would you want to take the time out of an already hectic day to make homemade baby food?
The simplest answer is this: You’re already cooking breakfast, lunch, or dinner for the rest of the family, and it’s likely that some of those foods are “baby foods,” too! Yes, why not cook for your baby, too? There’s no need to prepare separate meals for baby, using separate utensils and cooking ware.
Your baby is able to eat the same foods you make—from the same appliances and pots, pans, and baking sheets.
No matter what you’re preparing for your family, the odds are good that any of those foods can be reduced to a puree that’s safe and tasty for baby to eat.
