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.
“I was in the process of making food, someone challenged me and said they thought baby food in a bottle was more fresh and nutritious than homemade baby food. He said since bottled baby food is vacuumed packed etc. it’s actually more fresh. He said as the homemade food is frozen and defrosted it looses some of it’s nutrients. I know that this is true for frozen breast milk. Am I making my baby’s food in vain?”Also is it necessary to strain vegetables and fruits after steaming and putting it through the food processor?”
