Pureed & Frozen

Category: Baby Food

I remember getting all excited at the thought of introducing Spud to solids when she was about 5 and a bit months old.

I still make her food , and I enjoy doing so. Making baby food is really easy — I steam, I roughly mash them up (no more pureeing the crap out of them!), I put them in ice-cube trays, I freeze them and then use them when needed. I make them once every 1 or 2 months at a go, and then just keep then frozen in the freezer.
I have been doing the above for each individual type of food  which is a bit annoying, but at least I get to mix and match them as and when I feel like it, and to also provide Spud with some sort of variety. The kind o ffood she gets for the day depends on my mood.
Our freezer is currently quite full with all the frozen food I made for her…but one thing for sure, there is this sense of satisfaction to be able to feed Spud with something I make myself.  
Now that Spud’s eating 3 square meals a day plus snack time in between, I have been more experimental with the type of food I prepared for her. I cannot wait for her to start eating the same thing as we do!

    The oldies would say cold stuff not good for babies leh??

  2. Uhm…actually, we heat it up in the microwave before feeding her. ;D Freezing it actually keeps the food fresh, and only use what’s needed. or did u mean like “cold & heaty” food?
