When you’ve got an infant at home, the last thing you want to worry about is what “unpronounceables” are in the food you’re giving them!
What’s the best way to avoid this predicament…make your own!
Not only does homemade baby food give you the peace of mind of knowing what’s in it, but it can also be a huge money saver!
Of course, use your New Mum judgement to decide what foods are best suited for your little one based on where they are developmentally. With that said, don’t be afraid to try something new either!
