Homemade Baby Food: Butternut Squash

Wednesday, November 3, 2010
My first attempt at homemade baby food was super succesful!
Now that Aaron is 6 months old it is time for solids! YAY.

I kept it simple and choose butternut squash. It was super easy & I have told ya'll before that I am super lazy so if it aint easy, I aint doing it!

Here's how I did it:

All you need is 1 butternut squash & a tiny amount of unsalted butter.

1. Wash & Peel
2. Cut up the squash into pieces.












3. Boil it

4. Puree it
My blender has a puree option so that is what I used, no need to go buy extra supplies.
I added a little butter and a little water to help get the consistency where I wanted it.

5. Store!


I got these super cute containers from babies r us, they are made by Annabel Karmel. They are cute, cheap and get the job done. I packed some for aaron to take to grandma's and froze the rest.

THAT'S IT!!! Literally took 15 minutes and I was done!

I'm doing the same thing over on my blog today! I made sweet potatoes last week and last weekend I made avocado (which i'm posting today). Isn't it fun to make your own food and it saves so much money!

Hope you can stop by my blog sometime soon!

It looks like your baby is just a little older than mine! I've enjoyed looking around your blog--with our first baby (now 3) I was afraid we might have to use cloth diapers, but finally found one brand (a Huggies style) that didn't give her the nasty rashes. That sensitive skin is crazy.

I saw you on MBC and am your newest follower! :)
