Baby food can be very expensive so why not make your own? Freeze small portions of applesauce, mashed bananas or any other fruits or vegetables. Run them through a grinder or blender first. Freeze them in ice cube trays, pop out and store in freezer bags. A lot healthier for baby too.
Bananas turn brown when frozen.
Also, I buy the baby carrots when they are on sale in bulk. Run them in the blender w/water. Freeze in ice cube trays. Use as baby food, add to fruit/yogurt smoothies (this is a way I sneak sweet veggies in my toddler and infants diet), use in carrot cake recipes. Much cheaper than prepared baby food.
