Baby Food 101

A few of you fabulous ladies passed along this great site, wholesomebabyfood.com, with awesome recipes and info on safe storage of homemade foods, etc. Thanks! Definitely worth checking out!

Here's another great "recipe" that I used to introduce meat to Janers:

Sweet Potatoes and Chicken:
(I say "recipe" cause it's serious rocket science)

2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut in slices
2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cubed - 2" cubes or so

Boil it all together for 20-30 mins, until sweet potatoes are soft and chicken is well cooked.
Strain it and keep a cup or two of your boiling water from the pot.
Blend together, starting with 1 cup of your boiling water and adding until you reach the desired consistency.
Freeze in ice cube trays - my recipe filled two ice cube trays but it depends on the size of your chicken boobies and potatoes!

As I said in Solid Savvy, when introducing this recipe to Jane, I first mixed it 1/2 and 1/2 with cereal to dilute the taste in case she wasn't a big fan. After a week, she loved it!

When I say "your boiling water" I mean the water you used to cook the food in... not really hot water.
Be careful! These foods are super hot so be REALLY careful when cooking, blending, etc. Keep babes away! If you prefer, cool before blending.
Jane is scared to death of the blender so be forewarned... blending/processing may make babies cry! :(
