Starting to make your own baby food at home may seem overwhelming at first, but it can actually be quite simple and easy! Here are twelve, tried and true homemade baby food recipes, for each stage of your child’s development!
Stage 1 (4-6 Months Old)
While some parents choose to start solids at 4 months, you can also wait until your baby is a little older if you feel they aren’t quite ready yet. Either way, Stage 1 foods are the best place to start! These have lower allergen exposures, are thinner for easier digestion, and typically consist of single-grain cereals, and isolated fruits and veggies.
Remember, always consult with your pediatrician regarding introducing solid foods to your baby and specifically discuss any foods that may pose allergy risks for your baby. Here are a couple Stage 1 baby food recipes:
