Goodness, time moves fast. It seems that as soon as we settle into a good rhythm, we’re preparing for the next phase! There’s nothing I dislike more than packing up away clothes that no longer fit, or buying the next size diaper.
The grocery store labels can be overwhelming and confusing. What’s the difference between USDA Certified Organic and Made with Organic ingredients?
My rule for eating: the closer my food is to its original form, the better it is for me and my family. For my small baby, I’m extra diligent about what he eats. Luckily, it’s fun and inexpensive to make his baby food! I know exactly what he’s getting, and he gets to see his food is more than just mush in a jar. Here’s an easy method to make baby food with a baby food blender.
Sweet Potatoes for Baby
- Clean two sweet potatoes
- Stab with fork on all sides
- Microwave for 4 minutes, rotate and microwave another 2 minutes
- Cut sweet potatoes in half, and scoop out inside into
- If you’d like a thinner consistency, add a little breast milk or water (I added 1oz breastmilk)
- Mash with fork, or use an immersion blender
- Spoon into baby food containers – I recommend Green Sprouts Glass Baby Food Storage Cubes (glass is safer than plastic if you plan on warming this dish – these also freeze well!)
Baby Food Storage: This meal lasts for 3 days in the refrigerator, but freezes well. The two sweet potatoes I used recently made ~5 meals (10oz total), but you may have more or less depending on the size of your potatoes and the amount of liquid you add.
