It's so easy to whip up healthy meals for your little one using fresh vegetables. Pediatricians generally advise that you start with green veggies first, because they're less sweet than yellow veggies and fruits. (If Baby has the sweet stuff first, she might be less willing to eat foods that aren't sweet later.) Rather than buying baby food at the store, why not make your baby's veggie purees at home? If you do, you'll know exactly what's in your baby's food, and you'll also save money, since store-bought baby foods tend to be more expensive than homemade.
