  1. I always made my own babyfood for my kids using a blender and with real food and I knew what I was feeding my children. My mom used to use an old sieve and an old fashioned masher and today you can use a potato masher as well. There are books that you can get to guide you along and there is no reason to buy this garbage from the stores. You don’t know who made those foods and how and what is in

  2. When I had a Greek lady as a babysitter Penayota (Penny) she used to make rizzo with vegetables and meat all hand made on her stove. I made my own baby food at home and never depended on the stuff in the stores. My kids were understanding Greek back in those days. LOL LOL. Her husband worked with my husband – those were the good days.
