  1. I totally believe its better to make the food for your children than buy premade shop babyfood. We’ve got some baby carrots in the fridge so this will make the perfect dinner for our Rocket bubba 🙂

  2. Great idea to make pureed food. I think it’s always great to go with whole foods for people all sizes. Thanks for the recipe!
