Homemade Baby Food

In the search to provide homemade baby food that doesn't take all day and mess up my kitchen to make I came up with this idea.   Puree fruits and veggies and then freeze them in ice cube trays to use as individual servings at a later time.

This top picture is of some pureed nectarines. I then poured them into the ice tray, froze them, then put them in a labeled ziploc bag.  When I want to use one I just pop one cube into the microwave for 20 seconds and mix in the oatmeal or rice cereal with it and my baby loves it!  I know it's fresh, healthy and no preservatives.

I also made some from plums-

These are super easy!!  I'm going to make some vegetable ones this week.  I figure I will have to steam or cook the veggies first to soften them.  The fruit was already soft so it was easy to puree in my Tupperware smooth chopper.
