I’ve given up, for the most part, making Little’s baby food. I realized it was adding to my stress, making sure I was offering a variety, prepping and cooking, and forgetting to take it out of the freezer in time to eat. It was an obvious choice, though a difficult one.
Now, I have a boatload of baby food jars lying around. I couldn’t just toss ’em in the recycling bin, ‘cuz I know how versatile they can be! So far, my kids have made maracas (using google eyes. Kinda creepy) and I have started using them as leftover containers and on-the-go snacks! Hello, portion control!
