So you want to make your own baby food? Well that is wonderful. And its wonderful for 2 good reasons.
1.] Saves you a lot of money. Most baby food [ex. Gerber] is about .25 cents an ounce.
Making your own is about .01-.04 cents anounce. It all depends on what foods you get,
which are in season, and if you buy organic or not.
2.] You know exactly what goes into your child's mouth. Sure the store food has an ingredient
list but imagine the satisfaction you will get making your own food for your baby and knowing exactly what
is going into your child's mouth because their mother made it. It gave me a peace of mind and a
sense of pride for myself
