I love the fact that my mom has every type of cooking apparatus. I can always borrow it whenever I need it. And in this case, it makes baby food preparation a breeze.
I’ve made baby food for my 2nd child. I learned the basics from the internet and some cookbooks and I think I was quite successful with the first foods and the simple combination foods.
First foods are easiest to make because they are comprised of only one ingredient and is either steamed, roasted or baked. Never boil fruits or vegetables as most of the nutrients end up in the water.
My first foods list is as follows (in no particular order):
- Brown rice
This is how you prepare it by steaming:
Asses tenderness by poking it with a fork. It should go through without resistance
I always use a mini chopper because it is what we have at home. I think it is a good investment because we use it for a lot of our cooking too.
Transfer to a suitable container. Food should be good in refrigerator for 3 days and 2 weeks in freezer.
I hope this is helpful for anyone out there!
