I spent about an hour making food while Amelia was napping. I did veggies the first day, green beans, peas, california blend, and zucchini. She loved the zucchini! I also made applesauce later that night. This baby girl has not disliked any I have given her yet, so I am excited to start mixing up her food for different tastes!
I don't have a food processor but our blender has a baby food setting in it and it worked really well. This is how I made her food.
~Cooked the veggies/ fruit either boiled, steamed, or baked them
~Blended it with some water. Some would say to use Breast-milk or formula.... but I think of B.M as liquid gold so I will stick with water! I blended to a smooth texture.
~Poured into ice cube trays and froze!
~ Once frozen I popped them out and put them in labeled Ziploc bags. Each cube is about one ounce so she will eat two cubes during one meal.
Each morning or evening I grab out the food I want for the day or next day and keep in fridge! I do warm it up for a few seconds. Princess doesn't like her food or milk for that matter cold! She will take it room temp but that is about it!
Amelia eats 2 oz fruit with cereal every morning with about 4 oz of B.M. Next feeding she just has 4 to 6 oz of milk. Around lunch time she will have milk, 2 oz veggies and maybe some cereal too. Then just milk again around 3 or 4pm. For dinner she will have 4 oz of food both veggie and fruit and of course milk too.
