Baby Food

Posted in baby, cooking by Allie on April 11, 2010

Mr. S has moved on from rice cereal, and is on to bananas, sweet potatoes, and peaches. Next we try avocado and carrots. Making baby food is super easy, by the way, and cheap. I bought one sweet potato (I think it was less than 20 cents), baked it in the toaster oven (an action that requires very little monitoring, so you’re free to do other things), peeled it, pureed it with a bit of water and got enough food for babypops to eat for 3 weeks (he’s currently eating about one ice cube worth per day). It takes about an hour to defrost one cube, so I usually take one out before our morning walk/run and it’s ready to eat by the time we get home. If you’re in a rush, 10 seconds in the microwave works too. TO MY SURPRISE–it’s delicious. Seriously. Sweet and super creamy like mousse. It should be a dessert. Hubby and I steal from Samson when he’s not looking. Isn’t it amazing that we feel the need to add artificial sweeteners to our food when it’s this delicious with nothing added?

Also, because he has a little tummy, 1-2 tbsp of sweet potato is equivalent to Thanksgiving Dinner, so the sweet potato high afterwards is rather hilarious. His eyes don’t really focus on things properly, and he goes through wild mood swings. And of course, he’s super tired.

Just think: there’s enough sugar in a sweet potato to do this to a kid. Imagine what *insert your favourite sugary disgusting thing here* (mine’s white cake with white icing) is doing to you.

    White cake with white icing was my second biggest preg craving with Bob. (Lemons were first, I ate so many I damaged my teeth!)
