Making Baby Food ~ Green Beans

I did it! This was my first time making my son's own baby food and I have to say it was so easy and quick!

After feeding my son stage 1 baby food for about 2 1/2 weeks and knowing the consistency of the texture, I decided I was ready to make his own food. Wondering how to do it? Here's a step by step tutorial...

Boil your veggie/fruit. You can do this on stove top or in your microwave. Each method you add water to the veggie/fruit and cover letting it fully cook until your fork can easily pierce through the food.

I chose stove top

Next after the food is fully cooked, put the food w/ cooking juices in a food processor. Some people have a Baby Bullet, I don't and found that my food processor works just fine...or a blender.

Blend well! Add more water if needed, until the texture is smooth and just right for your little one!

Next, I poured the baby food into my Fresh Baby food freezer kit. Put the lid on and freeze 8-10 hours or overnight.

After the freezing time, pop each one out and put in a freezer safe Ziploc bag or food container, putting it back in the freezer. Each time you want this baby food, put a cube or 2 into a bowl and microwave shortly until it's defrosted and warm :) So simple!

My son approves and loved it...of course he did because his mommy made it!! :)

Next food I'm making is sweet potatoes!

  1. Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm going to start feeding my son solids next month, so I need tips!

  2. I love all the pictures! I think it is great that you are making your own baby food.

  3. I think this is terrific Megan ! What better way to monitor what your baby eats than making what you would eat !!! Great mothering and helpful tutorial for all the other moms !!
    PS He sure does look like he enjoyed it !!

  4. Pretty much how I do it, except I steam instead of boil. :-)

  5. Thank you for sharing, this is a great post...

  6. Thanks for sharing! That's how my mother made all of our baby food :)

  7. eep i found making baby food such a hassle (even though it's the easiest thing in the world) i love now that my daughter is older she just eats what i eat so there is no extra faffing around. but saying that, you're very good for making the baby food yourself ! i just didn't have the patience, well I didn't have a freezer so i had to make a new batch at every meal.

  8. So easy and so healthy!
