Once baby is weaned from breast feeding, it’s time to start to introduce foods, and all of the sudden you are shocked to find out how much organic baby food can cost! It has gotten a bit more economical over the last few years, but you can still save a lot of money by making your own homemade baby food. Here are a couple of homemade baby food recipes:
Apple and Apricot Puree
2 small apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
2 fresh apricots, peeled
Place fruit in a saucepan and cover it with water (about 1/4″ above the fruit). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and puree.

4 Tbsp H20
1/2 Tbsp rice cereal
10 berries (strawberries and blueberries are a good choice)
