If you have the time and energy to make your own baby food at home, this could be a lot more beneficial for your child. Not only will this allow you the flexibility to choose any type of food that you’d like to feed the little one, but you can also trust the source and production of the food. Also, be sure to grab the organic fruits and vegetables to make these baby entrées as healthy as possible. Here are the best baby foods to make at home:

1. Pureed Carrots 

Puree some fresh carrots to make a healthy treat for your baby. Carrots have been shown to improve vision, promote healthier skin, help prevent infection, and can aid in keeping away a bunch of other nasty diseases.

2. Mashed Avocado 

Avocado isn’t called a super food for no reason! Mash up some avocado for your child to obtain a ton of potassium, vitamins, and fiber, in addition to various heart-healthy benefits.

3. Pureed Sweet Potato 

Sweet potatoes are not only a delicious snack for baby, but they’re also loaded with great vitamins and minerals! Some of these include vitamins B6, C, and D, iron, magnesium, and potassium!

4. Butternut Squash Puree 

Butternut squash is one of the most common varieties of winter squash and is chock full of vitamin A, potassium, and fiber. Due to its tough exterior, you can store this squash for a long time before choosing to make some food for your baby.

5. Mashed Bananas

Bananas are great for homemade baby food because they’re so easy to mash down, and are also very healthy. Bananas are known for the amount of potassium they contain, but they are also loaded with many other vitamins and minerals.

6. Pureed Peas

Peas don’t only make for a colorful puree, but they’re also great for your baby. They provide immune system strength, many antioxidants, and blood sugar regulation effects.

Apples are always a favorite of young children because of their sweet taste. In addition to this, they contain a lot of vitamins and fiber, can decrease the risk of diabetes, and have actually been shown to curb many different types of cancer!

8. Pear Puree 

Pears, just like apples, not only taste great for your child, but provide some great benefits as well. Pears will provide the following: fiber, vitamins B2, C, and E, and potassium. Pears also, contain a fair amount of pectin, which is a water-soluble fiber.

Silkberry Baby is an organic baby clothing brand located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Developed by Carrie Shan, a mother of two young children, the range was conceived to create a baby bedding and clothing product range as her daughter had an allergic reaction to synthetic fibres. After much research, she sourced natural, eco-friendly and sustainable fibers (mulberry silk floss and bamboo) that she found to be the best natural choices available for baby and toddlers' bedding and clothing.
