Mama Made Baby Food: Frozen Mixed Veggies
With the exception of frozen peas, I had never purchased a bag of frozen veggies to use for making baby food. On a whim one day I picked up this bag of frozen mixed veggies and decided to give it a try in my baby food processor.
Well, let me just say that this is much easier than chopping up fresh fruit. While I still favor using fresh produce, this is a quick fix for when you're in a bind and need to puree some food in a hurry. For working mothers who want to make baby food but do not want to dedicate a ton of time to it, using frozen veggies may be the way to go. There is no peeling and chopping required!
The only downside to this was that the green beans in the bag were a tad big bigger than what my Baby Brezza likes. It took a bit of extra blending to get the food to a desirable puree. A bag of mixed veggies is also great for steaming and allowing baby to finger feed themselves.
My Little Bug seemed to really like this mixture, although it wasn't really a favorite of hers. I steamed and blended using my 25 minute setting on the Brezza. One bag gave me around six meals. Frozen veggies is definitely a blessing for the homemade baby food mama. Sometimes you just want a quick and easy way to make meals. As much as I love making baby food, sometimes the idea of peeling and chopping up veggies leads me to procrastinate when it comes to making meals (at least lately). So thank you Green Giant for this tasty bag of veggies.
Mama is happy.
Did you use frozen or fresh produce for making food?
