Homemade Baby Food Recipes

Having a baby is a LOT of work!  I was lucky to survive the craziness of having my first baby so making my own baby food was never a thought.  I was working full time and trying to figure out how to keep this very small and very demanding little person happy.  For him, store bought baby food was the answer!!  I don't regret it or think that I was a bad mom because of it.  However, with my daughter I really wanted to try out some homemade baby food recipes.


This post contains affiliate links to products I recommend.  I do make a portion off any you may purchase.  See full disclosure here.

When I decided to make my own baby food, I knew I wanted fresh fruits and veggies.  We had a great garden full of yummy veggies and a great blender.  Plus, my little girl was an EATER!!  She loved and still loves to feed herself.  At 7 months, she didn't want me to feed her.  She wanted to do it herself and she did.

Since she was such a good eater I also went through a lot of burp cloths and bibs.  I ended up making a lot of my own and shared this great burp cloth pattern.  But I would much rather have a good eater than a picky one.  These great homemade baby food recipes really helped me so I hope they will help you too!


Making your own baby food can seem a bit daunting.  However, with a few of the right tools, you can be super successful.  Here are a few of the products I used.  And no!  They don't have to be expensive.

  1. A Baby Food Mill - I loved this because I could use it for almost any fresh fruit or veggie but I could also use it with whatever we were eating for dinner.
  2. Frozen Pop Tray - this is perfect for little hands to hold and for freezing fresh pureed baby food
  3. Baby Food Storage Containers - this lids lock.  Enough said!!
  4. Refillable Squeeze Pouches - my youngest loved squeeze pouches and I loved that they could be homemade.
