One of these things is not like the other...



One of these things is just icky! It would be the Gerber carrot baby food in the plastic container. Oliver hates it! He spits it out every time I try to feed it to him. Note its fake reddish coloration. It tastes fake and reddish.

Now note the lovely orange carrot color in the glass bowl. That would be a bowl of steamed carrots whipped up into a lovely puree. They are buttery and delicious, with nothing but a little water added. I kept licking the spoon, they tasted so good.
What did Oliver think?


He liked them so much he ate three helpings.

Most excellent nummy face on the Oliver.

It has to be cheaper, too, I'd imagine.

What a rock star you are, making your own baby food! I can not get over how big Oliver is getting!

what a happy lil carrot-eater. :) i have u tried any of the earth's best organic baby foods? they seem to be true to color and taste, though not as fresh as a batch of homemade babyfood, of course. ;)

Domestic Goddess,
We have tried a few of them. He seems to only want the homemade stuff, though he will eat it reheated from the freezer, so I can make a bunch at a time. Thankfully.
