We like making our own homemade baby food from sweet potatoes. We put in the effort so we can control the ingredients and ensure our boy William Tell has foods without a lot of chemicals we can’t pronounce.
For example, today’s recipe for sweet potatoes is….
Wait for it…
Sweet potatoes and water.
Making it could not be simpler – peel and cube sweet potatoes, boil until soft, mush and serve.
I find it is easy to use a food mill to get a consistent texture, but you don’t have to do so.
Our boy likes it, and it saves quite a bit in food costs.
Now that Genny is getting healthy, she constantly searches for healthy recipes. She is proud of the lifestyle changes she has made, and I can see a difference in he – both physically and emotionally. She is wanting to slim down some more before we get serious about another child. But I can see a new baby eating homemade food exclusively.
To be fair, homemade food is more time consuming to make than opening up those little jars, but it is not hard and does not take that much time to make.
