When you prepare your baby’s food fresh and homemade, you have complete control over the ingredients in your baby’s food! Babies are more susceptible to the negative effects of toxins, including pesticide residues, due to their small size and growth. A child’s cells are multiplying at their peak, as well as vital organ development is occurring. These immature organs, especially the ones used for detoxification like the liver and kidneys, are less able to break down and metabolize toxins than an adults. When ingredients such as vegetables are processed, they may lose essential nutrients. In addition, many commercially prepared baby foods contain additives that can affect the nutrient content of the food.
Making your own baby food has some real benefits, namely, increasing your future toddlers food variety. It does require more time than twisting open the lid of a jar, but you can use everything you already own to make it. Making your own baby food is super simple. It does not really require a cookbook or any of that $$$ special equipment. Simply steaming organic fruits and vegetables until soft and then mashing them is all you need to do!!
Don't get me wrong, organic baby jarred food is nutritious for your baby. However, homemade baby food has much more flavor and texture, which may lay the foundation for more adventurous eating. Most importantly, squash tastes like squash and bananas taste like bananas. Some jarred food looks and tastes so bad and offers little resemblance to the actual food. Also, the texture changes very little from one jar of baby food to the next. With homemade baby food, the exposure to more textures means your baby will be feeling more comfortable with a wider variety of textures.
