10 homemade baby food recipes

Now that my little one is approaching toddler-hood, I look back with fondness on all the homemade baby food recipes I made for him. I miss the days of spooning food into his little mouth. Those days seem to be long gone for my 15-month-old, who decided very early on to self-feed.

I rounded up 10 of our favorite homemade baby food recipes to share.  Nearly all of these are complete meals—meaning they contain more than just one ingredient. They are a good, healthy balance of fruit/veggie with healthy proteins; ideal for babies 6 to 9 months who have moved on from eating single-ingredient meals. I use organic ingredients in all of my baby food recipes and puree them at home in a food processor.

I hope your baby enjoys these homemade baby food recipes as much as mine did! Cherish every moment because it will pass before you know it. Enjoy!
