Commercial Baby Food vs Super Baby Food: Did You Know?

When parents consider making their own baby food the first concern is invariably:  Is it safe to make my own baby food? Or said another way…Is commercial baby food better for my baby?  Let Super Baby Food dispel the myths.

Myth #1: Commercial baby food is superior to homemade baby food.

The food that you make at home from fresh, whole vegetables and fruits is nutritionally superior to any jarred commercial variety on your grocer’s shelf.  The cereals you can quickly and easily make at home from brown rice (and other whole grains) cannot be compared to the processed, refined white rice commercial baby cereals.

Myth #2: It takes too much time to make homemade baby food.

Making homemade baby food is easier than you think.   Check out WholeParenting.com’s pictures showing how simple it can be to make your own nutritionally superior baby food.

Myth #3: Homemade baby food may cause my baby to get sick or get food poisoning.

Some parents think that there is something magical that goes into the preparation of commercial baby food that can not be done at home, which somehow makes it the only food suitable and safe for their baby. Not so, baby food can be made easily, nutritionally, and safely at home.

Myth #4: The convenience of commerical baby food is worth the price.

Actually, making your own baby food is the cheaper alternative.  Check out this handy dandy chart prepared by WholesomeBabyFood.com to see the price per baby food manufacturer as compared to homemade baby food from your ice cube tray.  Homemade baby food is much cheaper!
