Having a baby can be one of the most joyous moments of your life. Alternatively though, a baby can keep you on the edge of your seat with all of the dangers that could potentially harm your baby. From allergies that you did not know your baby had, to poisonous chemicals, everything can be a potential weapon aimed at your baby. For a little piece of mind, why not try making your own baby food? That way you would know exactly who is making it, where it is coming from, and just what exactly is in it.
Naturally, a newborn baby has no teeth to chew up food into safe enough pieces to swallow. Therefore, whenever you make baby food, you will need to make sure that the food is reduced to a texture similar to that of pudding; that way the baby can safely consume the food without choking, providing a sense of relief to the baby, and more importantly, you. Typically organic fruits and vegetables are the best option for making baby food, but a lot of parents will also use various meat and poultry. Whenever using fruit, you want to be sure that you remove the pieces that could cause choking, such as seeds, pits, etc., washing them thoroughly afterwards. As for meat, the key thing you want to remember is to eliminate the extra fat from it.
