As y’all know, I really wanted to make Jake’s baby food myself. But let’s just be honest, I worked 51 hours last week. I don’t exactly have a lot of spare time. When we decided to start Jake on baby food, we did do it ourselves the first few times. But when we looked into it, we found some baby food we felt pretty good about for the times when we just don’t have the extra time to make our own. We buy Earth’s Best organic baby foods. We’ve had pretty much all of their stage 1 foods, and Jake loves them. So far, peas seem to be his favorite. I also love the glass jars they come in, because I don’t have to worry about chemicals leaching out of plastic into his food when we heat it, and I can reuse the jars for homemade baby food or for craft projects! We buy ours at our local Publix, which is where we do the majority of our shopping, but we’ve seen the brand at almost all of our local stores. It makes me feel good to know that I’m helping him to get started on the right path with healthy eating, and the foods have all tasted great so far. Every now and then, he still gets something homemade, and we are still breastfeeding the majority of the time, but these are a great addition.
