Homemade baby food

This stuff is really good! I'll likely continue to make batches of this for school lunches. Preston LOVES to eat nowadays! I'm sure he's in a major growth spurt at the moment. These are a few of his favs.
Apple & collards purée (splash of lemon juice)
Lentils, bananas, & apple sauce
Not pictured but equally as delicious:
Blackberry, blueberry, & pear
Peach or apricot or apple oatmeal with molasses
Carrot, cauliflower, & molasses
Broccoli, peas, & pears
He's very much into snacking on cantaloupe, blueberries and grilled chicken.
Initially I was testing things out in the baby food world, I was a little scared when he projectile vomited everything! But he got used to eating and I got better at blending :) so happy I stuck with it! I know where the food comes from and what all goes into it. Plus the cost of baby food is outrageous- he can easily put down 2.5 jars in a meal these days.
Try it out. All ya gotta do is boil and blend! I pour it into ice cube trays to freeze...then transfer to freezer bags. Happy to provide recipes if you're interested!
