I do use baby food from the market at times when I don't have anything else on hand..or sometimes for variety in puddings and fruits. To come up with quick meals I find it best to freeze a batch of vegetables, fruit and meat in small portion sizes. Here's how:
- Wash, Peel and Cut the vegie of your choice..All vegetables don't freeze well. I usually do carrots.
- Steam or boil them to soften them. I use very little water.
- Drain and purée them using a Stab Mixer. I used to make a very fine paste up till age 8-9 months but now at 1 year I leave in some chunks as well.
- Let it cool..but do not let it stay at room temperature for more than 2 hours.
