As a first time mummy I was unsure what was better buying baby food or making your own, After reading these gret tips on shark people.com 1. It’s cheaper than buying commercial baby food products. I bought zucchini at the store for a few dollars and it ended up making at least 10 servings of vegetables for my one-year old. That’s much less expensive than buying jars of baby food.

2. You are sure the foods you’re serving your child don’t contain any additives or preservatives.Many commercially made baby foods contain preservatives that allow them to sit on grocery shelves for long periods of time. Homemade baby food can be frozen if you aren’t going to use it right away. Some commercial products also contain thickening agents like corn starch or flour, which means your baby is getting less fruits or veggies and more filler.

3. It helps your child develop a taste for fresh fruits and vegetables from the start. As you probably know, fresh, seasonal food typically tastes better. If you taste a jar of pears, it probably tastes blander than a fresh pear that’s in season.

4. It’s good for the environment. Less bottles and packaging means less waste in landfills. There’s also less food waste since you won’t have to throw out half-eaten jars of baby food.

5. It allows you to have total control over what your child is eating. By making your own food, you know exactly what your child is eating and whether or not they are lacking in certain vitamins and nutrients.

I use both the baby bullet and vent steam / blender and both are great!! ;) it’s so much fun and has so many positives ;)

  • it is also so easy to make your own! mash a banana, there is a meal. Easy and fresh


  • I just used to mash up veggies with added water.


  • I used to use the blender stick and just add water if needed. If you steam bulk vegies, you can mix and match as needed. So easy.


  • you should put some of your baby recipes on mouths of mums :)


  • you can save lots of money making your own baby food and its better for your baby
