I finally ventured into making my own baby food this weekend. It was pretty easy, the hardest part was the clean up. I ended up steaming apples, parsnips, peas and roasting the sweet potatoes. I also made some veggie broth out of celery, garlic, carrots and leeks to add moisture to the purees (except for the applesauce, I just used water).
Unfortunately she didn't care too much for the applesauce. So far she's rejected all of the fruits (peaches, pears, now apples). I find it so odd, I thought all babies love sweet fruit!?! I'm not gonna give up just yet, I'll try to reintroduce the apples later on this week. Unfortunately I had to rewizz the peas in the blender this morning (I read that the blender does a better job with peas) - my food processor didn't do a good job with the skins and she was semi-gagging on them. You could also pass it through a sieve but I didn't want to remove the skins since it's good fiber and we definitely need some of that!! I'll let you know how it goes with the blenderized peas, we're having it for lunch today!
