Because Mr. B is sick and we have been busy, a short post tonight. When I first began making homemade baby food, I found a helpful website. Since Mr. B is mostly vegetarian (he liked my sardines the other day for lunch...yep, it's official he is weird too), I was happy to see how early I could give him tofu. I was very surprised to find out how much he likes it. He eats it plain as a finger food and will finish it off before almost anything else (except fruit) on his plate. And tofu is the easiest homemade baby food protein.
Step 1 Buy tofu...any consistency will dos
Step 2 Open container
Step 3 Cut off about 1 (2 when over 1 year old) inch cube and dice with a butter knife
Step 4 Put extra in a container and pour in fresh water to cover, refrigerate.
Step 5 Serve
Step 6 Every 1-2 days pour off water and add fresh water
Step 7 Act like you worked hard
The Compromise: people think you and your baby are strange, but remember they serve ground up chicken from a jar...YUCK!!!
The Sweet Reward: Cheap, Easy, Healthy, One tool needed, Helps to Develop Fine Motor skills, Encourages Independence, Organic is available, and a Protein a baby actually eats
The Truth is that Mr. B actually likes all versions of tofu. He gobbles up smoked tofu.
Tofu was easy for lunch on cleaning/laundry day with sick kid who didn't want to sleep alone in crib.
Here's the babyfood website, I couldn't live without
In future posts, I will share a few tricks I had to figure out on my own to make homemade babyfood
