Homemade baby food is a great way to provide wholesome, tasty, quality first foods for your baby. Check out the resources below, batch cooking ideas for beginner baby food basics, and our favorite combinations and recipes!
Making your own homemade baby food is really very easy. I pinky promise! It’s also much less expensive and less wasteful than store-bought versions. And honestly, it’s more convenient!
Yes, you have to take the time to make the food, but once you have a routine down, you’ll always have plenty of food options on hand in your fridge and freezer and you won’t ever need to run to the store (with a hungry baby in tow – no fun!) to buy your weight in jars. 😳

My story: I made ALL of the baby food for both of my kids – not a store-bought jar or squeezie in sight. Maybe it’s because I’m a control freak, but I wanted to know what they were getting. I didn’t want any salt or sugar added to their first foods and I wanted to be a little more involved in their first experience with food. It’s a milestone after all!
But I also know that it’s just one more thing… and when you’re short on time and on sleep, one more thing can feel overwhelming. I totally get it.
But that’s why I want to bring you all of these baby food resources in one place and to show you my tricks for batch cooking baby food – I have SIX rounds of this (find them under the Basic Baby Foods category below). Five of those rounds involve making 5 baby foods in just 20 minutes! 🙌
(Watch the short video below to see how easy it is!)
I prefer to knock out a bunch of food at a time, then pack it up and be done for the week (or several weeks).
Whether you want to make all of your foods or you just want to supplement some store-bought basics, I hope you find these homemade baby food resources useful.
And I’m here if you run into trouble or have questions or need help. Or just need someone to say thank you, because that sweet baby won’t. I will. I’ll say thank you. Tag me on Instagram with pictures of your baby food, of your little ones eating it (or smearing it or staring intently at it), of you making it happen. I will celebrate you!
Here’s that video:
