Baby Food Factory

After buying 24 more jars this weekend that I found for a great deal on kijiji I made a whole bunch of baby food today.

While the peas and green beans were boiling I chopped up broccoli, carrots and potatos. 

After letting the cooked veggies cool I add some of the water that the veggies boiled in to the blender with them and then puree and pour into jars.

Doesn't that look delicious! K woke up in the middle of my production and ate a snack while I finished up.

I mashed the potatos with veggie water instead of blending them. 

Of all the foods that I made today the only new one was potato. On the menu for this evening was mixed cereal with green beans, broccoli and some potato and applesauce and some prunes for dessert. They hated the potato, it made them puke so I don't think they will be eating it again soon.

My girls are up to three meals a day now. For breakfast they eat about a half cup of cereal and a few table spoons of fruit. For lunch they eat about a half cup of cereal, about a half cup of veggies and a couple tablespoons of fruit, I am beginning to add in some meat alternatives and usually reduce the amount of cereal by a little bit when I do. Supper is the same as lunch.

They seem pretty open to new foods. When I offer a new food I give it to them at least two meals in a row and by the second time they are usually eating it really well. Usually I wait at least a few days inbetween introducing new foods. Other than adding new foods I try to switch things up and give them a good variety every day.

I have been making my own food, it is really easy! I boil the veggies and then blend them up to a puree, I have jars and generally make at least two jars full at a time, I put one in the fridge and one in the freezer.


Veggies (in order of appearance)
-Green Beans
-Sweet Potato

-Avocado (this did not go over well and I did not have a second one to try it again yet)

-Mum-mum Crackers

They love eating! I have to feed them so fast to keep up with them.

At the Airport

A friendly lady came up to us at the airport and admired our sweet girls in their twin stroller then said to us, "I was going to ask you what you do in your spare time but you would probably say, 'what's that?''
