Homemade Organic Baby Food

photoSince she was about 6-months old, Samantha Smith has been pigging out on homemade organic baby food.  While I was totally intimidated to make my own food at first, I’m writing this blog post to encourage other moms and dads to give homemade organic baby food a try. I have some pretty incredible friends who’ve given me the tools and ideas to make this happen, and now it’s really a piece of cake.

Homemade Organic Baby Food Favorites

  • photo 2Golden beets (pictured right)
  • Avocado (Samantha drank plain Amasai with every bottle from four months, but this was her first true solid)
  • Guacamole (avocado mixed with seeded cucumber)
  • Sweet potato (regular sweets, baby sweets, and even white sweet potato)
  • Pears (green and red)
  • Apples (gala, fuji, you-name-it!)
  • Squash (carnival, yellow long-neck, zucchini)
  • Banana
  • Spinach and kale (after 7 months)
  • Mashed potato and corn
  • Eggplant
  • Carrots (rainbow carrots were really beautiful and fun)
  • Berries (strawberries and blueberries)
  • Quinoa
  • Ground beef (Yup. Paul and I browned some Beyond Organic GreenFed Beef for a homemade tomato sauce, reserved a little for Samantha, cooled it, and blended it up. She ate it with corn and mashed potatoes and loved it!)

Before I wrap this up, I have to give a shout-out to Pierce Rowans for parting with his Baby Bullet and to Aunt Kate & Uncle Brian for the super awesome recipe book that gave me a great place to start. THANK YOU!!!

About jenni smith

Jenni Smith is a recovering fast food addict and a reformed couch potato who swore she'd never be a distributor... until the day she realized the only thing holding her back from reaching her true potential was her own stubbornness. And maybe a bit of fear. When she finally decided to put on her "big girl pants", Jenni (and her rock star husband, Paul) went from founding distributor to top earner in two years, and is now a Youngevity Vice Chairman Marketing Director. With a 15-year career in marketing and two little girls at home, Jenni raises her kids and her family's income at the same time and is passionate about coaching anyone who has: A) a desire for better health; B) a need for better wealth; C) patience for sass.
