Part 1 of 3: How to Make Your Own Baby Food | Ingredient Selection

Are you a new parent who wants to give your baby the best start in life? Making your own baby food is a great way to ensure that your little one is getting fresh, healthy, and nutritious meals. Not to mention, it's also a great way to save money and reduce waste. In this three-part series, we'll guide you through the process of making your own baby food from start to finish, with the help of some eco-friendly kitchen products from Two Pillars.

First up, let's talk about ingredient selection. When it comes to making baby food, it's important to choose ingredients that are fresh, organic, and in season. This ensures that your baby is getting the most nutritional value out of their food. Some great options for baby food include:

  • Fruits: bananas, apples, pears, mangoes, peaches, plums, avocados
  • Vegetables: sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, butternut squash, zucchini, beets
  • Proteins: chicken, turkey, beef, fish, tofu, lentils, beans

Make sure to choose ingredients that are free from pesticides and other harmful chemicals. If you're not sure where to start, check out your local farmers' market or health food store for fresh, organic options.

Now, let's talk about some eco-friendly kitchen products from Two Pillars that can help you in your baby food-making journey.
