combinations of fruits and veggies - baby food recipes

Leave your own thoughts of "what foods go well together & what foods don't" behind as you step into the kitchen to conjure up a meal for your baby!

Creative Baby Food Combinations & Meal Ideas

Making baby food combinations is one of the most fun things about cooking homemade baby foods. At this stage, you are able to combine several foods to make really tasty "recipes" such as apples, pears and sweet potato. Don't shy away from mixing food that your palate thinks should not be mixed together, your baby's palate is a clean slate and she won't know any better.

Please insure that your combos are age appropriate for your baby - while there are suggested age ranges noted, you should determine if they suit your baby's needs.

Do I still need to follow the "4 day wait rule" when I make baby food combinations?

You can begin making combinations when you have introduced at least one of the foods separately and have checked for food allergies. When you have introduced your baby to a variety of foods and you know that no allergies are present, you are free to begin combining different foods together. 

For example, if you have introduced apples and acorn squash, you can combine them and add one new food to the combination.  In this example, should your baby have a reaction, you would know it was the new food added to the "old" foods that may be the culprit.
