I know it might seem like a daunting task to make your own baby food, but it's really not! Think of the money, resources and plastic bags (from grocery shopping) you'll save by making it yourself. Not only will you know exactly what is going into your baby's food, you'll also get to regulate the packaging as well.
While it does save money and resources, it does take time. But you don't have to spend your life making food for your baby. Simply buy the same vegetables that you would purchase in baby food form. These vegetables can then be steamed, boiled, pureed, chopped...you name it! If you are overwhelmed by doing it every day, carve out a time each week that you can devote to making food for baby. Most homemade baby food can then be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can freeze it in ice cube trays or chopped and put into containers (make sure they are freezer safe).
Try it, your baby will like it.
