- Don't be afraid of using spices. Short of very spicy or salt I tried to really branch out of the traditional baby food box. Think mild curry, paprika, cumin, garlic, nutmeg. . . the possibilities are endless.
- Don't allow preconceived notions of what is a good combination get in the way of trying new things. I mixed all sorts of weird ingredients together, most of it was a hit and some of it wasn't. I don't know if his early meals had anything to do with it, but to this day, K loves a huge variety of food and is very non-picky.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 1/2 cups of baby carrots
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
With K's food I would pour his purees into ice cube trays for freezing and then would put the cubes in Ziploc bags in the freezer. It was super convenient to just take a cube and warm it up a little before feeding him. This time around I purchased some BPA free silicone freezer cups specifically made for baby food from Target. The safer plastic makes it worth the expense in my opinion, plus there is the added bonus that they are microwave safe for when I am in a hurry to defrost a batch. I like the Munchkin brand ones but if you google "baby food freezer cups" you will see there are many products out there for this purpose.
