Every Monday I will post something related to babies: inspiration, craft projects, baby news, and discoveries I have made in this new and exciting world for me. I hope you come along on that rollercoaster ride with me.

My little one has started solids a couple of months ago. And while I love and loved baby food in jars for its convenience (especially if the little one doesn’t eat more than a spoon full of food in the beginning), I also cook baby food myself. For me the advantages are
a) that I know exactly what is in the food (organic or not, salt or not, thickeners or not)
b) that I can combine veggies and meats that my little one likes
That doesn’t prevent me from buying baby food in jars, but I like to combine it with the good, home-made stuff. Although I am not back at work, yet, I don’t feel like cooking baby food every day. We are just too busy with playing, cuddling, changing nappies, trips with the pram, meeting other babies and mums,... you get the picture.
Therefore I mostly cook big pots of food and put them in portions into the freezer. That way we have enough home-made food for a week and we can easily choose between different veggies.
So without any further bla - here is the recipe for our favourite veggie-potato-meat mash:
300g lean beef
1 kg veggies (carrots, pumpkin,...)
300ml apple or orange juice
