It is a lot cheaper to make your own baby food. Here are a few pointers:
  • Always wash your hands before handling food or feeding your baby.
  • When you introduce a new food, prepare it without any other ingredients.
  • Don’t add sugar, salt or fat.
  • Steam, pressure cook or waterless cook food.
  • Peel vegetables and fruit unless they are organically grown.
  • Mash all food. Make it progressively lumpier.
