Which are the healthiest? What kind are you using?

I am planning on making my own baby food, but she started eating solids a bit sooner than expected and I need to purchase things to steam/puree the food so in the meantime....

Is there a brand that is better? I already know I want to stay away from the ones that add a bunch of stuff, but anything in particular to 'look out' for?

I have tried a brand called Sprout... seemed pretty ok to me i.e. tasted like what they where saying it was.

I'm using Gerber. But I will be trying to make my own soon.

I've been making all my own; it's been much easier than I had imagined! Robby loves most things I've made, it's way cheaper, and I know exactly what's in it!

We're skipping the mush here. In a month or two it is strait to mashed table food. She hates the regular stuff. =P Picky picky!

I planned on making my own baby food but we quickly found out she tolerates pretty much all textures (within reason for a baby), so there isn't really any need. We just give her a little bit of what we're eating; I just over cook it a little bit for her. Pasta,gnocchi, peas, broccoli florets (the stuff on top that sloughs off) etc. We received a jar of baby food from a company called Hipp which I thought was pretty good. It was organic carrots. Not sure if they have it in the States but that's the only thing we've tried.

I'm looking into a brand called NurturMe, they quick dry the food and grind it into a powder you can then mix it to whatever consistency you want and use formula or breast milk or water to do so.... added +.... sounds awesome for travel since it comes in a small thin pouch.

I found it on amazon. In the research I found all 1st stage baby food is kinda the same since at that point they can't really add anything.... it's the later stage that the yucky stuff starts getting added.

Thanks everyone for the tips!

You don't need all that crap they sell as baby food makers...i bake sweet potatoes and just steam everything else on the stove in my normal pots and pans. You do need some sort of hand blender or food processor. I have a hand blender thing and it works great, you can get them for like 30 bucks brand new. than I portion into cheapie sandwich bags, roll them up, and freeze. When it's time to eat I unroll, thaw in warm water, and snip the end and squeeze the food out! It's cheap and works fantastic

Good idea with the sandwich bags. The brief period in time we were making baby food I used my blender and we froze the food in an ice cube tray. That worked pretty well too for measuring because 1 cube is about 1 oz.

It's all Mama McDaniel over here. Jarred baby food is just SO expensive. I'm making my own. It doesn't take a lot of advanced planning, just enough time to boil/steam whatever I'm making. She loves it so far.
