Advantages of making your own baby food
Some people say that our long-term likings for certain flavors, textures, and types of food stem from our early years of eating. With this in mind, the main advantage of making homemade baby food is having the ability to feed your baby a variety of fresh, tasty, and nutritious meals from day dot. It may also mean you’re less likely to be raising fussy eaters!
Other advantages of homemade baby food:
Making your own baby food is generally less expensive than commercial options, particularly if bought and cooked in bulk. You can make sure that you get exactly what you pay for.
When it comes to homemade baby food, you have the opportunity to serve up a variety of nutritious but delicious options. You can broaden your baby’s taste palate by pureeing fruits or vegetables outside of the ranges you might usually find in the baby food aisle of the supermarket.
With non-processed fresh and healthy food, you don’t have to wonder about how long your baby’s food was sat in the shipping factory or on the supermarket shelf for. Plus, it tastes better and you know exactly what your baby is eating without having to worry about any unexpected ingredients.
Making your own food means no single use plastic packaging to deal with. Most store-bought baby food now comes in plastic rather than the old school mini glass jars, and can be difficult to recycle.
