  • Your tips are amazing. I am making baby food workshops as my conclusion tesis in medicine school, and your recomendations are following what the World’s Health Organization says and what as doctors we teach to new moms. Congratulations for this incredible job. Kisses from Brazil

  • I steamed every fruit and veggies instead of boiling them. �� My baby doesn’t want his food to be mixed with breastmilk so I opted for boiling water. Anyways, these are way better than buying ready made baby foods. For sure, I’m gonna be trying these for my 6month old. ��

  • I saw a news article recently that said baby food on the shelf tested for high amounts of metals. I feel better about just making the food.

  • Aw and my baby causing got really sick and was rushed to the hospital because he had a problem with his breathing and that was down to the fact that we where storing his food in plastic containers and we where recommend by the doctors to only use glass as it can be sterilized unlike plastic

  • Best video ever I’m a first time mom and I didn’t know which home made purées to prepare for my baby who just started weaning, il be making these purées for my little princess from now on ����������

  • I always avoided diets because I thought I wouldn’t be able to eat pizza or pancakes. Diet plan I got from Next Level Diet allows me to have cheat meals and still keep my fitness journey on track. If you don’t believe me, visit their site and try it yourself.

  • Thank you so much for this video, i was stressing out big time regarding how to go about feeding my bubs. This video made me excited to try all the different combinations:)

  • Thank you so much, you can’t imagine how helpful this is, I am struggling with my baby, he is 6 months and doesn’t want to eat anything ��

  • #teamSeptember All things you should know about Nutrition for your baby I hope you like it ❤️ It helped me so much �� https://payhip.com/b/et3D

  • this is such a very helpful video. My baby just turned 8 months and wanted to have more ideas on what to feed him. Thank you so much for sharing your tips and tricks on how you do yours definitely going to try out your recipes. Super enjoyed watching this. May God bless you and your family.

  • Just so everyone know to make the healthiest food for your children steamed over boiled when you boil you are throwing some of the vitamins away

  • The greatest addition to my kitchen has been the Instant Pot. It cooks beans super quickly and you don’t need to soak them. But I still do because it makes them easier on the stomach. But when strapped for time, will just cook them from dry. Thanks for the tips in the video.

  • ?? But isnt boiling them taking away any proteins and nutrients that make it healthy fornthe baby? Just curious, is there another way, like maybe steaming?

  • 1. Greetings from a mother! How can you compromise for your little one’s meal? after all babies are blessings of god.

    Here I am sharing a link through you may have great knowledge about your baby’s meal and related. https://babyhealthcaree.com/

    Best of luck mums!

  • My aunt literally raised my cousins with boiled potatoes, boiled carrots, boiled rice, boiled broccoli, boiled spinach that’s literally all they eat and they where overweight ����

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!!! UGH i’ve been so scared to try making my own but i really dont want to feed my little one the processed stuff. This makes me feel like i can do it so easily and give her lots of variety that she will love too! Thank you a million times over for making this video! New sub here <3

  • Im gonna be a dad in about 8 months so I wanted to start turning the stuff from our garden into baby food. This is super helpful. Thank you.

  • I would highly recommend people living abroad to stop giving frozen food for babies please make fresh and give it’s really not healthy.

  • Amazing advice, thank you! Also adding a teaspoon of milled flaxseed or hemp seeds will provide a lot a extra nutrition for you baby ❤️

  • I’ gong to make some of this for my babygirl. but my doctor and all the othwr People told me that babys not should eat spinah before they are 1year old or more?

  • I have been watching your videos since I started working at home. I am a mom of a 14 month old baby boy and he is a lil picky eater:( I am trying your techniques. Crossing my fingers so, he could eat like your Theo:*

  • Sweet potatoes and apples are the worst offenders of having arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury all heavy metals and unfortunately naturally occurring in the air, water and soil. These heavy metals can supposedly lower babies IQ.
    I would stay away from or limit apples, sweet potatoes and rice when making or buying baby food.

  • Great video!! Best I’ve seen about this topic. My baby is almost 6 months old so I’m gonna start feeding her solids soon all this will serious come in handy. So… Quick question, is your baby shirtless for a reason? Like… I know babies make a huge mess of themselves while eating so, is it better to feed them shirtless or naked?

  • I wish this video was available when my first baby was 6 months old. He hate store brand food even the organic ones and feeding time was really hard. Now I have a very picky toddler. I will be implementing all these tip for my new baby.

  • Seems like a silly question but I’m really stuck on this. When i take the food out of the freezer/fridge, do i warm it up or put it in the microwave?

  • My baby is 4 months old and her doctor said no butter or anything salty because their bodies can process sodium very well yet. My suggestion is asking your pediatrician before making any recipes just to check what is best for YOUR baby. Every mama is different so no hate. Loved the video!

  • I am not pregnant but i am trying to conceive. I am just trying to learn what i need to know once i become a first time mom. Thanks for the video.

  • When my baby was 6months, in an appointment with my paediatrician, when I asked him about giving cerelac to my baby,
    he asked me only 1 question..
    How much would you like to have tinned/canned food which is prepared long ago & is stored with added preservatives in it???
    https://youtu.be/DVi75ulKR5Y
    This video was really helpful for my girl.. Hope it helps you too:)

  • I think it’s an evolutionary holdover that babies/children prefer sweet, because sweet (in nature) = safe, and their tastebuds are sensitive to bitter to avoid poisoning. Don’t beat yourselves up, mamas.:)

  • I am from South India…never fed anything out of packet or out of fridge for baby… Meal is always freshly made… Just wanted to check out this method.

  • Love this video, thank you! A question though; In Sweden the “NFA” does not recommend spinnage due to the high level of nitrate? Whats the recommendations in USA? (guess u are from USA haha:) )

  • I would love to see more baby food making! I am 30 weeks pregnant and like you I know I wanna make my own baby food. I loved the peaches and blueberry mix

  • I just had my first (and last) baby. He’s 5 months and I was advised to start him off with rice cereal by 4 1/2 months and now I’m going to begin with Purée because he wants everything we eat, it’s the cutest and saddest thing to see lol. Anyway, I’m rambling. I’m subscribed, I like the way you do things. Very informative. Thank you!

  • 7:38 she is in the wheelchair ����.
    My baby started with beechnut organic sweet potato…
    I realize right away that I have to make my own baby food,because she finished a whole jar at first try…������.

  • I think you might actually need to blanch the spinach.. Spinach is very dirty and harmful bacteria like E coli is a huge concern for spinach. Blanching will also make spinach more soft and easy to blend.

  • I just started taking care of someone elses 6 month old and this video was just what I needed. I know what I need to get and how much time his meal prep will take! Thank you soooo much! So much faster than reading a book ha!

  • Vegetables only. Steamed not boiled. There is just way too much sugar in what you made. Way too much fruit at too early of an age that activates the dopamine response system leading to sugar addiction that is really bad for the liver and can lead to obesity and diabetes. Use more vegetables, meat, and animal and coconut fats.

  • Hi my baby turned 6 months old yesterday and we already started giving him some home made fruit juices and apple pure since last week. Can I start giving him avocado purée now or wait until he is 8-9 months old?

  • I wount recommend any frozen food at all one coz u dono for how long has dat food been frozen except what is printed on the pack 2nd their are many preservatives added to the food and by using dat insted of fresh food means making ur baby eat unnecessary chemicals which can be easily avoided by using fresh fruits and vegetables

  • Baby’s cannot have corn syrup either because of the botulism. Also no cow dairy of any type if they are under a year because they cant digest the proteins yet, it’s also too high in calcium with blocks iron absorption. Around 4-6 months baby’s iron stores a depleted and it’s important to give baby foods with iron. Please see a dietician and ask them questions if you have questions!: )

  • I love that the majority of the comments are people saying they don’t have children and don’t want children ���� I’m expecting in 3 months and this video (as well as others you’ve done) is so helpful!

  • I loved this video, very very very useful ♥️ I just started solids for my baby and I was super lost and confused, this helped me a lot ���� thank you

  • Arent you boiling out all the nutrients? I thought you needed to steam to preserve them. I make baby food for my 36 year old son with down syndrome, he aspirates and recently had his teeth pulled. I have been using the big giant ninja and was going to buy something smaller for softer things so looking into a nutribullet or majic bullet and just pull out the bad boy big ninja(that eats up counter space) and pull that out for pureeing meats ect… Do you purree meats. My son loves it with gravy and all, just like a roast or something just mushy and easy for him to handel. I couldn’t imagine feeding him canned bay food at 36. I can purree just about everything even pizza and candy ect.. I just had a purree party tonight and made a variety of things and separate them into a 3 section tupperware and freeze them all. I do that at least once a week.

  • Super helpful thank you so much! I’ve heard the recommendations for ice cube trays and Im thinking to myself those are way too small lol, definitely will look into the silicone soap molds!

  • All the mothers in my family started giving their babies purees at 4/ 4 1\2 months and everyone did fine. Some babies will have different dietary needs but yeah i even started my kids on purees at 4 months and they did well too.

  • Thankyou for this video! One questions! How do you decide which combination of baby food to feed your baby fro breakfast lunch or dinner?? Or do you just feed her all the combinations in one day no matter the order?

  • I made this but my baby was vomiting after I fed her…she is vomiting when feeding dal rice also…m wondering why�� She is now 8 months old.. Any idea mommies???

  • I was just here to get ideas about more combinations, like what goes well with what. It worked for me thank you. I’d cook them with a little steamer so keep all the vitamins and won’t throw the water in my pot bu use it when making puree. The more vits the better, isn’t it? Thank you for the video.

  • I loved the video! My baby just started eating and I’ve been struggling with preparing food for the day and to give her always something new to try. Will definitely try this!

  • I’ve learned to use the same water that I used to boil the vegetables/fruit since the water sucks all the nutrients and using the same water kinda put the nutrients back in.
    I prefer to steam, but boiling it’s kinda easier, I think. ��

  • I mean baking the sweet potatoes with the skin is much easier then the peeling them and cutting. Also you can just steam the spinach. So much loss of nutrients in this video

  • Not to be rude ie anything but I can tell you arent in the kitchen much lol if you are beginning to be in the kitchen more that’s awesome! Gotta start somewhere

  • If we are pureeing the fruits & veggies then why do we need to peel them? Does it not blend into the same consistency to avoid choking hazards?

  • I’m not pregnant…..yet! But I am doing my research for my future baby ��. Instead of bags, can I use baby jars or will that cause freezer burn?

  • I have tried same for my 6 month old baby. Better to stirr the powder after grinding to avoid big granules and add a piece of jaggire for sweetness��

  • This is awesome!!! I definitely Will be using these ideas! I’ll probably buy store bought for going out but use this at home! Thank you!

  • Hey Angela, thank you for the video! I have a question: could one also use raw blueberries? Why do you boil them? Isn’t it save for the baby to enjoy them uncooked too?:)

  • Wow love this video…my baby just started eating so I bought the bay bullet and I’ve only done sweet potatoes lol…but cant wait to try out the apples with spinach idea��. Thank you!!!

  • You should definitely rinse the spinach even if the package says it’s been rinsed. You never know how clean greens actually are. (Also, I’ve found caterpillars, ladybugs, and other little critters in organic spinach on several occasions.)

  • Loooved this video you’re very descriptive and energetic which I love and I love the baby bullet it’s so cute with the little smiley faces on there! ������ I definitely would watch more baby related videos but I don’t think I’ll be as interested in listening to your podcast about baby stuff cuz I just love the visuals and I’m sad cuz I’m sure there’s a lot of good info in them �� sooo maybe more vids? ��

  • Recipes were gud but video was boring due to Washing n peeling parts n also after every re iOS all tht thanku n plz subscribe n showing intro again n again was v irritating

  • Hi sorry for the last comment hope you reply to my doubt. As a new mom its now that i am watching helpful this video. I have a doubt that. Can i add formula milk at last to this cerelac prepared.? Hope u reply soon

  • My baby is turning 6 months next week, I loveeddddd this video! Explained everything all at once & your baby is adorable! Thank you soooo much! ♥️♥️♥️♥️

  • Have you ever juiced for your baby?? I just received a juicer for Christmas and wonder if moms have juiced fruits and veggies for their kids?? Natural sugars and bone added. No preservatives.

  • Why don’t you just steam them? That way they don’t lose their flavor and natural sweetness? Also sweet potatoes are so much better if you just roast them in the oven.

  • Hey, thanks for your videos. Here first time mom learning this motherhood stuff. Allow me to make a recommendation. Soaking oats make the more nutritious and easy to digest. Search for oat activation. Lot of love, Melina

  • I have known from chefs if you drain water out of fruits and vegetables after boiling alot of nutrition gets out and waste. Instead of boiling for baby food they recommend steaming.

  • Mere baby ka 8 month complete hone Wala h 18 ko…but Maine upar ki koi bhi chiz ni di….Kya kru..mango puree to khata h bnana apple wagerh ni…Kya kru..pls someone suggest me

  • It’s a very useful video thanku soo much.my baby is now 6mnths old can I use these purees mam please reply iam very confused abt my baby feed.

  • I had my daughter 21 yrs ago. Not sure if things have changed, but they told me to start her on greens first and to introduce “sweet veggies and fruits” much later.

  • I got myself a baby bullet too! Love it! I recently created my mama channel and I there talk about baby food too! I love this video! ��

  • I don’t have any kids but when I do have children I want to make homemade baby food with a baby bullet!! I heard you are supposed to start with veggies then fruit when you start baby food!!

  • Yes Georgia peach ��!!! Loved your video. My baby is 4 months so I’m super excited to start making fruits and veggies for her! Already subscribed to your channel �� And your baby is super adorable ��

  • 0:07 Hate to be a nag but I can’t help but warn other people who may not be aware: don’t ever put hot ingredients in the blender like this.. It can not only warp the plastic, but could cause the blender to break while in use, which could result in injury. Let everything cool down…I suggest people read the instructions before using a bullet blender. There’s been too many cases of severe injury where people get cut from flying pieces of the blender due to careless mistakes like this… Also don’t ever use baking soda or carbonated anything in blender, the pressure of certain ingredients can also cause the blender to explode.

  • How old is your little girl? How did you start introducing food for her do to allergens… I started once a day with carrots but my little boy hates his carrots he just turned 6 months old

  • Thanks so much! I’ll be 4 months pregnant next week & I definitely am practicing now. Don’t want to give my baby any store baby food

  • Keep the stems!!!! They contain more nutrients than the leaf, plus there’s no difference in taste and there’s no texture either (after blending)
    Also you should put the sweet potato in the oven so it keeps all the vitamins and nutrients and are not all gone in the water, after it’s soft in the oven the peel just comes right off like butter, no need to peel.
    I like to keep as much of all the natural good stuff in my baby’s food so she gets the most out of it.

  • After watching through this I dont think the magic bullet will work for me. I left the last post, and wanting something smaller besides my huge ninja for purree. But the big ninja can handle big chucks of meat and all and this bay bullet struggled with the sweet potatoes. The magic bullet dosnt have a lid to pop of to stir so you can get the foods on top. In the a.m. when getting him ready for school I will just purree some Ravoli or something and I am always in a rush so I just turn it on and it goes and shuts off after timed amount I may have to be taking in off opening up and sirring and putting back on ect ect. maybe not such a good idea after all. I just hate that big bulky blender on counter all the time and I have a new airfryer and aquarium so I need counter space. have you ever tried the majic bullet? Just wondering if this is weaker or stronger then stepping up is the nutri bullet but I dont know I f I can use it to chop veggies, beacuase i would like to use it for that as well. Might be to powerful, from what I read its for pulverizing. Can this handle purreeing meat?

  • If you need to introduce meat, try boiled eggs centre. I remember I ate bowled egg, my daughter started wanting it. Made her lick it. She has been in love ever since. She ate allot of spinach too. Now she is not into fried food, problem if we go out. Always have to buy grilled chicken or bbq. But she is very healthy. Even likes natural yogurt over fruit yogurt.

  • Hiiii
    How can we prepare cerelac from this powder while traveling??? Is there any option to use it during travelling or when don’t have gas stove and want to give this cerelac to baby.

  • Very nice, lekin ham abhitak nahi banaye he meri bachhi 8 khatam hone ko 1haftaa he ouska vajan kam he aap kuch bataayiyena kya khilana he

  • Lots of studies have shown that organic food is not nutritionally better and does not necessarily have less pesticides. Organic farming practices still use pesticides, just less. But these extra pesticides in conventional farming are not significant enough to even affect a human’s body. Don’t pay more for oragnic!

  • The arsenic/lead/cadmium etc in baby foods are NOT added. They come from the soil the food is grown in. Certain produce and grains (like apples and rice) have a much higher tendency to absorb heavy metals from their environment. The only way to avoid them is to feed a variety of produce (not the same thing all the time) and AVOID ALL RICE PRODUCTS! Puffs, mum mums, cereal, and rice in general… All of it. And brown rice is much higher in heavy metals than white. Basmati rice is the safest.

  • I have a 6 month old baby and I am a very busy mom along with a 10yr old big girl.
    I want to start making fresh baby food. I did need up buying organic baby food from Whole Foods by I am still kind of funny about it. I will be buying the baby bullet. I look great to start making baby food. May you give me some recipes please or where do you post them. Thanks really enjoyed your video. Thanks

  • When you put it in the freezer, do you just get take it out and let it unfreeze on its own? Or do you put it in the microwave? Also do you feed the baby warm food? Or can it room temperature?

  • Love this video! I don’t have a baby yet, but my wife & I are planning on starting IUI (similar to IVF) in October. I plan on cloth diapering & making my babies food as well. I’m a big fan of DIY things when possible! My dog has severe skin allergies, we’ve tried all of the diets (including prescription food) & meds & nothing works. I discovered a few years ago when I make her food homemade she has MUCH LESS skin issues & she loves it! Ever since I’ve made her food. People think it’s so cool & ask a lot abt it… I always tell them it’s WAY cheaper, healthier, & not difficult at all. I make a month 1.5 months and freeze it.

  • Thank you for making this video!! It’s super helpful, as I’m really wanting to make my own!:) Currently making my own sweet potato baby food.:)

  • You shouldn’t boil the fruits you should put then in a steamer over the pot boiling the fruits kills the nutrients you can also add breast milk instead of water

  • Ok just watched 3 videos (cloth diapers etc etc) ur dope and I have to sub not to mention your aesthetic is perfect… this is my third baby oldest 15 and gracias for all the new and refresher tips. Love your 79’s and modern vibe

  • Cerelac means an instant food…. But if u have to cook it for 13 minutes everytime u serve than what’s the point. Also so many daal becomes hard for baby to digest. Dear mom’s try this cerelac recipe with ragi and ghee for weight gain and brain development
    https://youtu.be/zJwW9GUX33w

  • You’re adorable. Randomly found you in the suggested videos list cause I’ve been looking for videos to make my own baby food. You did a great job explaining everything, thank you <3

  • You have no idea how many baby food videos I’ve watched and you my friend have answered so many of my doubts!! I can’t wait to see more of your vids.

  • We r using boiled rice also known as ukhda chawal, can i make cerelac from this rice or do u have to use any other rice plz suggest. Also ukhda chawal takes time to cook.

  • Hi Friends, we’ve made a play list with all single and multi grain cereals. Please take a look here! Thank you!

  • If there’s one term I wish I could erase from collective memory, it is ‘homemade Cerelac’. It’s the same as saying homemade coca cola or homemade Maggi. These are brands, not food types. You don’t make a homemade McDonald’s burger, you just make a burger at home.

    The problem with the term homemade Cerelac is that it makes Cerelac, a brand, sound like normal food for babies. It isn’t. It’s highly processed food, devoid of adequate fibre, full of added poor quality minerals and vitamins that may not even be absorbed. Despite the localisation (one variant tastes like khichdi apparently), it doesn’t really taste like real food.

    Do you eat out of packets like eating MTR ready meals everyday? Why do that to your child?

    When we start solids, it’s tempting to go buy new products or try new things like a multi grain mix because there’s a great sense of novelty. Instead of spending your energy on making something new, make something familiar and spend your energy on other ways of engaging with your child. Food from the family pot, without salt, sugar, honey and chilli mashed or offered as is, from six months is the best way you can ensure your child gets familiar with food and is getting a wide set of bioavailable nutrients.

    There is no such thing as a homemade cerelac. Instead it’s just multigrain mix made at home. Unless you regularly consume a multigrain mix, there’s no need to offer it. Everyday family food is what a child needs. The variety also encourages a healthy microbiome.Instead of spending my energy making baby food, I made normal food for family, giving a bit to baby and spent my energy cleaning up!

  • this is perfect we just got peach and blueberries from one of the farm market that we passed by this weekend. And just starting to introduce fruits to my 8 months old baby boy. I’ve been feeding him vegetable purees. thank you for sharing your experience and appreciate it.

  • You have to steam the veggie or use very little water and then puré them with the water. That way all the nutrients dont get wasted in the water.

  • What about breast milk! As wet ingredient when you making something that don’t really have its own juices? Like sweet potato mixture. So baby still getting all nutrients. Even If you don’t breastfeed but pump, or both

  • My baby is due in January and I’m currently raising my 10 month old niece! This is so HELPFUL!!! Thank you!!! Practical and easy meals that aren’t full of sugar!!! ��
