What we feed our kids matters. Now I’m sharing this post because I know it would have helped me when I became a mother for the first time. I remember thinking to myself, what can I feed my 6 months old baby without relying on processed food sold at the supermarket.
Luckily for me, he attended nursery and they gave me their food menu for babies. All yummy stuff I must say. I remember asking the staff, ‘so how would you feed it to him?’, the answer was, you cook it as you normally would and then blend it into a smoothie or puree to make it baby food. The nursery food was made from scratch and they were all healthy meal.
So this mama went home to try it out and it truly worked. So I stopped relying on processed meal at the supermarket (which my son never liked, they were all wasted) and started making his food from scratch.
Benefits of making my baby’s food.
- He has learnt to eat what I eat and has almost the same taste bud as me, so feeding him has become easier.
- There are lots more variety for me on what I can make for him.
- I get to feed my child our traditional meal.
- I feed him natural food.
- I know exactly what my child is eating (no preservatives or unknown ingredients).
- There is a continuity in feeding him, his favourite meals.
Now that I’ve shared my story and the benefits I gathered from my experience.
My youngest is currently 6 months old, so I am once again at weaning stage which is why I thought to share this post with you. I will share with you the easy foods that my 6 months old daughter has tried so far.
Boil and then blend, it’s that simple. (I didn’t add salt because carrot has its natural sweetness.
Rice and broccoli with tomato sauce
She loved it😋😋.

My daughter will be able to eat Sunday roast and Christmas Dinner with us.
She joins in family meals, I would serve her portion to blend before spicing up the rest for the grown ups 😊.
I can store it in little pots to freeze for a second feed too.
