The day your baby startseating solids is an important milestone, and you can help set him or her up on the path to healthy eating by making your own. “Going from all milk or formula to real food can be daunting,” says Lisa Courtois, senior product manager at Béaba, a baby-food product company based in Hoboken, New Jersey. “Puréeing fresh, local, and organic produce and meat—rather than using canned baby food—lets you know exactly what’s in the food your child is eating.”

By the time your baby is five or six months old, it’s a good idea to put your baby’s high chair next to the dinner table when your family eats. If he watches your mouth as you chew or reaches for food, he’s probably ready to try some purees.

DIY Baby Food-

I made homemade baby food for my youngest and really loved the experience.  Anyone here planning to make their child baby food at home?  BTDT mamas- have any tips to share?
