A Tad Tardy on the Baby Food

Oh the second child... It was all about timing. Levi was fed almost entirely homemade baby food, whereas with Owen we have been away from home from when he was 6 months old up until just under 4 weeks ago. Needless to say, he has been living off jar food until this week. Figures that he can finally enjoy basically whatever we eat and now gets a whole pile of baby food made for him!

Anyway, you can't go wrong with homemade apple sauce. All you need are apples and a touch of cinnamon. He prefers it far more than the alternative, so it was worth it.

He seems to be loving the Cheeky Chickpeas as well. Levi was a big fan. The recipe is from Lianne Phillipson-Webb, registered nutritionist and founder of Sprout Right. She teaches workshops in the Toronto area. My sister-in-law took a class with her and loved it. Being a little outside of Toronto I opted to buy her dvd's which teach the same basic steps as the workshops and provide you with the recipes.


  1. I use to love making baby food! I hope your wee one enjoys as it all looks quite tasty! :)

  2. I love my baby food making days! I feel so productive and like a Super Mama! I'd love to try those Cheeky Chickpeas! Thanks for the share. And aren't those containers perfect?!

  3. I made this up today. Smelled delicious! I can't wait for her to try it tomorrow. And wow, it made a substantial amount. I have another can of chick peas ready for a new batch in a couple weeks. Thanks Janie!
