    This recipe sounds good for a baby. If you want to make homeade baby food, here is a website to help you out. For my second child, I used their products to make the food myself. It makes you feel good to feed natural, homeade food to your baby. The kit comes with freezable containers in baby portions. It is simple and you save a lot of money too!
