Make a Month of Baby Food

Your grocery list

You can buy all of these foods at once and freeze and store, so they're ready to go for the next month and beyond. Or start by buying and using a handful and then move down the list. Expect to introduce about eight to ten new foods a month to your baby. To identify possible food allergies, wait at least three days between servings of new foods. For 6-month-old babies just starting solids, puree and freeze each food separately.
