Do you think organic jarred baby food or not organic homemade baby food is better? Topic: Do you think organic jarred baby food or not organic homemade baby food is better?

Question: Ok so i spend about 50 dollars on only a few veg. and fruits that only lasted about a week for my daughter. I can't afford to do that every week! Food prices are getting rediculous. Do you think that it's better to buy organic food in jars or make her food that isn't organic?? I'll still make a few things but majority would be out of jars...

Nothing wrong with jarred baby food. Apparently, the costs of organic produce in your area is quite high. The primary advantage of making your own food is cost, so if you want organic and it is that pricey, stick with the jars. In most of the world, baby gets whatever is for dinner for the rest of the family. Just puree it appropriately. A hand blender works great for this. I felt I should add that I personally don't like the fact that baby food is now being packaged in plastic instead of jars. While I understand the expense involved in jars, I think parents should be given a choice between buying infant food in jars vs. plastic. In the long run, I think that is bad for the consumer of baby foods. I would personally stick with jars.

Contact you local Chamber of Commerce - they will have all the information for Vendors and laws. Farmers Market is another way to finding out what the laws are. All fairs/shows and such require a vendors permit and on the permit the rules will be for you to read. Most Chamber of Commerce will have an on-line form you can download. Organic is the way to go.... Good luck! Read the source - an awesome info on Farmer's Market

Woah, where are you shopping? I bought organic ingredients, but it was nowhere near that much. It was MUCH cheaper for me to make homemade organic baby food than it was to buy the organic jarred food. Do you have a Trader Joe's near you? They have very inexpensive organic produce.

Home made is better, you know what's in it and it tastes so much better. Jars are ok for convenience if you're traveling, but homemade food is so much tastier. It's also SO much cheaper when you make it yourself. You get about 10 jars worth of baby food from about $1 worth of sweet potatoes.

I think as long as it is in a glass JAR it is fine. If it is in a plastic container I think it is pointless because the chemicals from the plastic leach into the food. How dumb is that??? I also make sure the milk I give my little boy comes in a glass container.

make your own! DEFINITELY I know your dilemma because i buy mostly organic stuff and my local grocery store only has certain organic vegetables and fruits but i definitely will make my own food for the baby organic or not. i don't trust that jarred baby food.

i buy the jarred organics, I spend about 30 a month on jarred foods, plus a box of cereal every week or so. He loves them, and I feel better knowing that his food has gone through a more stringent overseeing process.

i think you sould just make them yourself! Im all for organics but it would cost a fortune to buy it already made. SO I would try to find some organic vegtables and puree them yourself and freeze in little bity ice cube trays. It will save you a TON

Trix Originally Answered: Are baby jarred food ready to eat?
I transfer the food from the jar onto a plate or something and heat it up. It isnt good to microwave a jar and then have your baby not eat it all and then put it in the fridge and then microwave it another time. If you are introducing it to your baby i would give him/her a little bit in a bowl or on a plate rather than giving him/her the whole jar.
