Recipe Baby Food Jars
Food diversification is an important step in a baby's life. When baby food jars are introduced, it all starts with the discovery of new flavours. That's why different fruits and vegetables should be tried individually during the first few weeks to make sure your baby tolerates them and does not have any allergic reactions. In addition, when introducing the first baby food jars, small quantities should be preferred.

Baby Food Recipe
In the first few weeks you should introduce one vegetable at a time. Preparation by steam is preferred, as it retains important vitamins. The vegetables should be well pureed at the beginning. From 9 - 10 months, the baby food can be mashed with a fork.
It is recommended that the baby food consists of vegetables at ⅔ and carbohydrates at ⅓. Once your baby is accustomed to the baby food for the first time, you can gradually increase the quantity. As soon as the quantity has reached approx. 200g, you can gradually stop feeding your baby milk. The average quantity of a supplementary food is between 180g and 300g.
Freezing baby food
Before using the swing stopper jars you should sterilize the preserving jars. For sterilization you can boil the jars, the swing stopper and the sealing ring in a pan for about 10 minutes.
Once the baby jars are filled, let them cool down and you can put them in the freezer.
