Make Semi-Homemade Baby Food For Your Baby

Everyone has been wondering, "What is Semi-Homemade Baby Food?"

Semi-homemade baby food is part homemade baby food and part store bought baby food. Women who are full-time career women and full-time moms do not always have the luxury of time on their side! Neither do some stay-at-home moms who have busy schedules carpooling their children around or busy with maintaining the home.

I do not know anyone who does not keep a couple of jars of Gerber or Earth's Best. So why not use some of those jars with fresh food? First I will say that I am a big fan of Sandra Lee's "Semi-Homemade" Television show, although some people have unfavorable views towards the show. But one day, I wanted to put some apples in my daughters homemade sweet potatoes and I did not have one apple in my refrigerator! What I did have, was a jar of apples and guess what? I discovered "Semi-Homemade" works for your baby too!

If you do not have certain fresh foods, or do not have time to cut, peel, dice and cook, mix some of your already frozen purees with store bought and you get, Semi-Homemade food for your baby. It's still nutritious and tastes better than store bought food alone!
