Baby food making

On Sunday, we went to Park n' Shop international and picked up a bunch of organic fresh vegetables to make our own baby food (yay, finally! We've been relying on baby jars until now). This is great because now Natalie will be able to try veggies not typically found in baby jars including: choy sum, bok choy, asparagus, green beans, wah-wah choy, and zucchinis. We also picked up organic kiwi and apples. Who knew making baby food could be so much fun?

Step one: Wash and boil all veggies

Step two: Puree all veggies. Spoon veggies into trays for the freezer.

Do one veggie at a time (don't mix! because Natalie hasn't tried some of these veggies before and need to check for allergies). Cover and freeze all veggies.

Once frozen, dump frozen veggie cubes into freezer bag. Label the bag. Let Natalie play with it for a short time. Put it back in the freezer.

Step five: Thaw and let Natalie enjoy!
