Luna & Christiana at Arlington Farmers Market
When Luna was born, Christiana started making her fresh baby food using local, seasonal ingredients. It's just one baby, not a scientific study, but Luna likes FOUR TIMES the amount of vegetables than her brother who ate store bought baby food. I'm just sayin... fresh, local, seasonal food tastes better.
To make it easier, Christiana picked up this Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker which only takes 15 minutes to turn fresh ingredients into a ready to go meal. And while the baby food maker isn't cheap, she's saving money and time not having to go buy all of those expensive prepacked bottles from the grocery store.
I asked if I could blog Luna's favorite recipe. Turns out it's pretty simple - applesauce! Christiana just peels the apples, chops them up, drops them in the baby food maker which steams them and blends it into dinner. She even likes eggplant, which is made the same way, although Christiana adds farmers market onions. What a sophisticated palate for a little baby!
