Solid Food

George is almost 6 months and he has been showing increased interest in what we are eating. I thought I would let him try a few things this week. I wanted to start with vegetables but we didn't have any on hand so we started with bananas a few days ago and today we tried some apples. So far I haven't had need to buy baby food in jars and I don't think I ever will. So, aside from milk/formula and rice cereal, this is all George has tried and he is not sure what to think about it. He likes the first few bites of banana but then he decides it's not his favorite.

Then the apples I think are a little sour but he eats a few bits before deciding he'd rather have a bottle.



By the way, thank you for all the comments. I honestly thought no one was reading anymore and now I feel silly for even saying anything.

I don't buy baby food either, except cereal. Puree all your stuff w/ a little water (whatever left over veggies I have from dinner), then pour it into ice cube trays and freeze w/ saran wrap over the top, then pop them out into a freezer bag to keep, and just nuke (or let it thaw) a few cubes at a time. Zeke loves plain yogurt mixed w/ applesauce too.

Kristin, that is exactly how I am making it! I love just pulling a little 1 ounce cube out of the freezer and warming it up. We will be trying sweet potatoes and squash next!

Try mixing some of the fruit or veggies with cereal. It's an easier transition. Especially since you started with fruit. Once they have the sweet stuff, they think veggies are from the devil.
