One food fad right now that is fast becoming a permanent trend in millions of homes is preparing organic foods for the baby. But where you can look for organic baby food recipes, and moreover, where can you start purchasing organic foods for your precious bundle of joy?
Looking for Organic Food Recipes for the baby is not that difficult thing to do. You only have to have a computer and an Internet connection, and you are good to go. There are many websites right now that specializes in this kind of thing, and you only have to download and print out a recipe before you start making them.
Aside from the Internet, you can also subscribe to magazines that feature organic foods. Chances are, they have organic baby food recipes that are not only easy to follow but have ingredients that are easy to find.
You can also join community groups like local co-ops and local farmer associations that deal in organic farming. Here, you can gather the information that you need to start on an organic food diet for your family, and you can also get recipes as well as share some of your own.
Now, here are some simple organic food recipes for your baby that you can follow.
The most common baby foods are purees made from fruits as well as vegetables. What you will need is an apple. Peel the apple and cut them into small cubes, making sure that you remove the core as well as the pip. After this, you only need to gently cook the fruit on about three tablespoons of water until the fruit becomes soft. When the fruit is soft enough, put it in a blender and blend, or you can even mash it through a sieve until it becomes a soft puree. Allow it to sit for a while until it cools down before feeding the baby.
This recipe will also work with carrots and potatoes. For soft fruits, you can simply blend them on a blender or pass them through a sieve. If they are a bit hard, then do the same method that you used for the apple.
When your baby is ready for meat and other types of foods that contain protein, always make sure that the food is organic and that they are cooked properly. Also, you should always cut them in small pieces or puree them so that the baby will not choke on the food.
