Homemade Organic Baby Food (for Babies Ages 4-6 Months)

This should be filed under things I wish I figured out with the first baby 8 years ago!

Because, guess what? Making baby food is SUPER easy. And it can save you a lot of money.

Plus, any non-Organic baby food you buy off the shelf and feed to your child puts toxins into your sweet little baby’s bloodstream and brain. No, thanks! I opt to make baby food out of organic fruits and vegetables and keep a store of organic baby food in the pantry for travel or when we’re rushing around…which is quite often.

(Side note: I really like Ella’s Kitchen Organic baby food and usually stock up when it’s on sale at Babies R Us.)
