When it’s time for your little one to get their first taste of solids foods, making decisions on the types of things they will be eating is very important. While age and development level play huge roles in what you should or shouldn’t feed your baby, where the food comes from and what ingredients it contains are both equally essential factors. Many parents, instead of using store bought food, make their own baby food right at home. The process allows them to be conscientious about exactly what goes into their baby’s food while also being able to save tons of money as well
