Making Your Own Organic Baby Food

Do you actually need a baby food processor to prepare your own organic baby food? What else do you need to prepare your own organic baby food? It is recommended that you invest in the right kitchen utensils to help you prepare baby food recipes with organic foods.

Make sure you wash thoroughly the fruits and vegetables that you are using to prepare your own organic baby food and that they have been carefully peeled before cooking. When you make the purée, you can add breast milk, formula or spring water to add a bit of liquid if the food is too thick. You may also add a bit of unsweetened apple juice.

What Do I need to Make My Own Organic Baby Food?

A Baby Food Processor

Do you need a specific blender to make your own organic baby food or will any blender do? If you don’t have the budget to splash out on a baby food processor, then a normal blender will do the job, however we would recommend a baby food processor as not only will it be the right size with the right attachments for the consistency of baby food that you need, but with many models you will also be able to steam and blend the baby food.

Baby Food Jars

You will need jars to put the baby food in and labels for them with the dates. The jars and lids should be as sterile as possible. Washing them in the dishwasher before use, should do the trick.

Invest in a couple of feeding bottles and cups, or even reusable squeezable bottles depending on your baby’s age. Depending on the food, you will know which is best for use. Purchase a few storage containers that will hold and store the food when baby is not feeding to avoid constant preparations all day long. Ensure they are airtight to promote hygiene.
