When a 5 month old is watching
your every bite longingly, it might be time to start him or
her solids. Some parents start with cereal, but where do you
go beyond that? One option would be to go to your grocery
store and stock up on pre-made jars of baby food. However,
another would be to save money by making your own. The
first step to making baby food at home is to choose foods.
Of course, babies should start out with fruits and veggies,
though it is debatable which should come first. That is
completely up to the parent (well, the baby may have a say,
as well). What you should keep in mind is that it's better
to choose fresh fruits and vegetables. When they are not
available, frozen goods can be used
as a substitute.
