To make my daughter's food, I use to So Easy Baby Food Book. It comes with a guide for picking out fruits and vegetables, as well as instructions for each type of baby food you can make and when it's best to introduce the foods to your little one. Today, I made carrots and acorn squash. Squash and carrots are not in full season yet, so they are not available at the farmer's market. So I went to my grocery store and bought 1 acorn squash and a bag of frozen carrots. I always opt for frozen if a vegetable is not in season. They don't have a high fructose corn syrup or other additive bath before eating.
