Usually I am on the ball when Earth day rolls around but this year it came up out of nowhere on me. I did "celebrate" by taking part in the Babies R Us Earth Day organic babyfood sale....so maybe that counts?
I am committed to making as much of E's food from scratch as I can, but I know there are times I just won't be able to, so I picked up a few jars to have on hand. Based on my obsessive research we are going to try out the Earth's Best Organic brand.
So far I have been able to make all his food. Sweet potatoes were up first and after a few days I think he warmed up to them. Bananas were up next and based on our first go at it today, they were an instant hit.
I got the Cuizinart Babyfood maker and even though it's pricey for something I'll likely only need for a few months, I am LOVING it! It steams and purees in the same bowl so I literally cut the food up, throw it in the bowl and that's it. When it's done I portion it out, throw the pieces in the dishwasher and I'm done. SO freaking easy!
*Neither of these companies have any idea who I am. I'm just sharing my experience as a mom starting her baby on solids.
