Making Your Own Baby Food

So why would anyone want to make their own baby food? After all, it sure seems like a lot of work when you could just buy a little jar and open it, right? These days, lots of moms are choosing to make their own baby foods for a variety of reasons. It gives you complete control of what your baby is eating without worrying about any added sugar, sodium, or other ingredients that might not be optimal for their health. Second, homemade baby food is more economical than store-bought. Plus, homemade baby foods retain more of fruits’ and vegetables’ nutrients than store-bought baby foods, due to the fact that store-bought baby foods are cooked at extremely high temperatures before they are jarred in order to ensure a longer shelf life without added preservatives.
