7 Best baby homemade food shortcuts

I take pride in making my baby fresh pureed homemade food from scratch ingredients sourced locally from the farmers market. Really. But I have 3 kids and a job meaning some days we improvise. Through trial and error, Rookie Dad Alec (not pictured) and I discovered these homemade baby food “cheats” that are the easiest ever baby foods while still being organic and healthy.

Cheater “homemade” baby food

As long as we have these in the house, Sawyer has organic baby food for pennies.

Make baby food fresh fast and healthy with these short-cuts

These shortcuts or cheats come straight out of package as organic healthy mush. I don’t need to buy individual jars or packets labeled for babies, I read the labels and look for good ingredients. Easy.

Applesauce and full fat whole milk yogurt are my two heroes. I serve them straight up or mixed with my homemade purees (or the other cheats). The hardest part is wrestling Sawyer for the spoon.

These other organic packaged goods are best supporting foods: pumpkin, black beans, refried beans (yep, even with the mild chilis).

Make baby food fresh fast and healthy with these short-cuts

Here are a few winning combos from my homemade baby food shortcut ingredients:

  • Applesauce + pumpkin = baby pie
  • Applesauce + veggie purees = something sweeter (try broccoli)
  • Yogurt + pumpkin = custard
  • Yogurt + fruity purees = fruit on the bottom yogurt
  • Refried beans + yogurt = Mexican feast
  • Black beans solo = hilarious finger food
  • Shredded cheese in a little pile on his tray = big mess (see photo upper left)

Do you have any super secret baby food shortcuts or cheats you can share?
