The best way to make food is to keep it fresh. For our kids, we used a little food grinder that we got at the Burlington Coat Factory baby section (why this store has a baby section, I don’t know…). It was about 10 dollars, and would easily grind fruits, veggies, and meats. At mealtime, we would pick something off our plates, grind it up, and give it to our little one. Or, we would make an extra serving for them without the spices.
