Chicken and Sweet Potatoes for Baby
Have I mentioned Yams is one of the easiest things to make and so good for babies. Well that still hasn't changed. Neither has my need to make my own baby food. While on vacation last week I had to stop and buy a couple of jars of baby foods and I couldn't believe how much 1- four ounce jar was. If you're looking for a cost affective alternative for feeding your baby making your own is the way to go.
So at Emilie's 6 month appointment I was asked if Emilie has gotten any proteins. Which I had started giving her yet, I really thought that came at 8-9 months, boy was I behind with the times. I decided that I would give her pureed chicken combined with one of Emilie's favorite meals, sweet potatoes, (AKA yams). I tried to make all my baby food once a week so I'm not making it during the week. This will take about 3 lbs of yams and 1 to 1.5 chicken breast to make a weeks worth of food, if your little one is eating 4ounces daily.
