Saw this at the Venice farmer’s market on Friday:
Super fresh organic baby food! This is really only a good post if you live here because as far as I can tell, you can’t buy it anywhere else so far. But I was mostly inspired by her pretty jars full of bright food. Her site has a list of some of her flavors, which might good to reference if you’re into making your own.
I cannot WAIT to make baby food in all sorts of delicious combinations. We’re getting close, but I have to say I’m not sure if I’m ready, weirdly. That will mean my baby is so big! Of course the lure of better sleep with baby cereal is tempting.
Also learned one v. interesting bit of information. She makes young coconut baby food, which is totally delicious. I tasted it. But more importantly it has a nutrient (I forget what it is) that is only found in young coconuts and breast milk. Isn’t that cool? So if you are feeding your baby formula for one reason or another, you could supplement them with a bit of pureed coconut too.
My friend Ami recommended Super Baby Food as a good reference for making your own. So far it seems to have lots of great info. Ami, btw, makes insanely delicious sounding food for her daughter Lila. Like sweet potatoes with cumin and ginger. I would totally eat that.
