So, right now DS is eating a mix of processed organic foods and conventional homemade foods.  I try to avoid processed foods for our family but I don't like pumping him full of pesticides either.  Which do you think is the lesser of two evils?

Processed food by far the evil, in my opinion!  I would rather feed my kids something that looks, tastes and smells like real food and the food that I prepare for the rest of us.  Organic food is not that much different, especially in Canada.

Definitely conventional whole foods.

I agree.  We have always fed the baby some of what we are eating.  As a bonus, I think it helps to force me to eat healthier!

I agree with home made over processed.

With my youngest we did no baby food (purees) at all. He just ate what we were having for dinner. It did force me to think about what we were eating because it was what he was eating too

Yep, avoid processed at all costs. Especially when feeding children!   BTW since I breastfed exclusively, my kids rarely ate until after they were about one, by then they ate what we ate whenever possible.

Baby food recipes are great when it comes to feeding your baby. Aside from the fact that it is a healthy option, they are far easier to make than buying jarred baby food. Make it one at a time and store it on the refrigerator to save money.
