making my own baby food

Julianna is now eating solids one time per day, in the evening. She had carrots for 4 days and last night we started avocado. I thought she loved carrots but goodness this girl devoured some avocado!

The carrots were from Gerber but I prepared the avocado for Julianna. I decided to make my own baby food with the assistance of http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/. They have all of the recipes and information to make your own food.

It's so much cheaper to make your own food! I made 16 oz. of green beans and it costs me $1.50. Right now she only eats about 1 oz. of food at a time so that means each feeding costs about 9 cents! I bought the Steam Fresh green beans because they cook fast and they are nothing but green beans--no added salt or flavoring.

The other reason I'm making my own is because I love the fact that Julianna is eating fresh veggies. I can make my own organic baby food for her at a great price. I also think making fresh food for her will encourage Josh and I to eat more fresh veggies ourselves. We definitely don't get enough of them. Here is Julianna enjoying her freshly prepared avocado:
