In a perfect world, every one of us would whirl up our own sweet potato purees for baby at all times. Some of you live in that reality and I salute you! Since I was working nearly full time while raising my babies, I lived in the land of sleep loss and basic survival and sometimes purchased a little sanity in the form of prepared baby food.
If you do buy baby food for traveling or just to save time, what does your child prefer? My babies enjoyed Earth’s Best Baby Food and I loved that I could buy them in affordable cases from Costco or individually from Target. I also had hearty approval from my child for Happy Baby Organic Baby Food but I can’t speak to some of the other brands on the market like Plum Organics Baby Food, Sprout Organic Baby Food, or Peter Rabbit Organics.
No matter what we may be able to recommend, the true seal of approval comes from those tiny taste testers. What does you baby prefer? If you want tips for making your own purees, check here. (And don’t forget that our book, The Eco-nomical Baby Guide, is packed with tips for saving on baby food and recipes for making your own!)
