I love, love, love www.wholesomebabyfoods.com!  I mentioned this site in another post but decided it deserved more time in the spotlight.  It is a fantastic source for many topics related to baby food including ways to (easily) make homemade varieties. It’s also chock full of valuable nutritional information. I spent hours on this site when my older daughter first started eating food and find myself back here again now that our seven month old  baby is eating solids. I have personally had a lot of success with baking apples and pears.  I cut them in half, place them face down in a pan covered in water and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes.  It’s easy and they end up very juicy and soft without losing flavor.  I also recently steamed a pear and I liked those results as well; I cut it into chunks first.  There are so many great, healthy ways to prepare food for your little one.  I gravitate to the easiest options as I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen but for more ambitious cooks, there are many creative recipes that sound amazing.  I am so happy to have found this site and equally happy to share it with you.  Enjoy!
