Hello Baby Ep #25: Homemade Baby Food

Hello Baby Ep #25: Homemade Baby Food

This week’s Hello Baby episode is all about baby food.  We started MacKenlee’s food journey with oatmeal and we’re sharing all the different brands we’ve tried along the way.  I even made homemade baby oatmeal at one point!

There are two GREAT reasons to consider making your own baby food. 1: You know exactly what is in the food that you’re feeding your babe. 2: It will save you money.  Really!  Two sweet potatoes makes six jars of baby food.  Two peaches makes at least three jars of baby food.

I can already hear your thoughts…  You don’t have time.  I take one afternoon to prep MacKenlee’s food for the entire week.  I have a system in place where I can have all her meals prepped and some ready for the freezer in under an hour.

I referenced the Moms On Call baby food introduction chart in this episode, you can check that chart out here.

The website we use to check how clean her baby food is Clean Label Project.

Would you like to see a YouTube video showing step by step how I make baby food each week?  I could also share a few of our favorite recipes…  Let me know in the comments below!

As for the products discussed in this week’s episode, check out the list below for direct links for each item we discussed.

  • Yes – please do a video on food! My baby is three months behind your cutie. It’s very easy for me to follow what you do a few months later!

    • Angela Lanter

      Ours started on solids at 3.5 months so you’ll be there before you know it!

  • Elena Welch

    Yes please, a video would be great!

  • Yes, I would love a video on baby food!! I just started my 5 month old on oatmeal this week and a video would be so helpful on how to make my own baby purées!

    • Angela Lanter

      I filmed a tutorial last week! Should be up soon. 🙂

  • Heather Pierce

    I absolutely loved the baby food video you did with the sweet potatoes and apples/spinach and blueberries/peaches. I would SO love to see more videos with different foods you make for her. We too have a Costco membership so I’ll get all the produce there but it looks so much easier watching you do the demo lol.

    • Angela Lanter

      Yay!! I love hearing that you enjoyed that video! Thank you 🙂

  • What is that website for seeing what is in baby food?


  • McKena Wallentine

    Hi Angela! I watched your YouTube video on homemade baby food. Loved it! I would love to know all of the recipes you use(d). Are they already posted somewhere and I just can’t find them? I just want simple and easy ?

    • Angela Lanter

      Hi!! The only ones I posted were the recipes in that video. 🙂
      One of her faves is/was sweet potatoes with cinnamon and a little butter!!
