Discussing Questions And Answers About Homemade Sauce For Dog Food

Joseph asks…

Do you make your own baby food?

If you do, what sort of things can i make for my 5 1/2 month old baby? He’s prefering sweet things such as banana, and i’m finding it hard to get him to eat savory.Any suggestions?

Jimmy answers:

My daughter loved steamed pear sauce when she was little. Just steam peeled pears for about 8 minutes (steaming preserves more of the nutrients than boiling), then mash with a fork or put them through a blender or a food processor to smash (they’re cooked enough at that point, though, that all you need is a fork). Be sure to get all the seeds out, of course.

I would make big batches and then freeze portions in ice cube trays.

Steamed prunes (done exactly the same way) are good for constipation. Just be careful when you mash them – they’re super sticky and will not come off of whatever you mash them with easily. I wouldn’t do these in a blender.

I also steamed peaches the same way and mashed them. Froze everything in ice cubes, and then would mix and match – the prune/pear combo was especially popular.

Of course, I’m sure you’ve figured out that you can make banana pudding, almost, by smashing a banana with a fork to within an inch of its life. It starts to fluff up after a while – just keep mashing.

Commercial applesauce is just fine for baby – don’t worry about buying the special baby sort (same goes for juice, by the way). I just bought no-sugar-added. She liked it with cinnamon.

I also baked squash and then mashed it for her. That was good with cinnamon. I froze the portions as above.

I would keep frozen veggies on hand, and then nuke a few and whirl them up in my Magic Bullet blender – the peas and carrots were especially popular. And taste the difference between commercial, jarred peas and homemade, smashed peas. I wouldn’t eat the jarred stuff, either.

Don’t worry about meats right away, but when you’re ready, you can bake some chicken and then put it in the blender or food processor with a bit of liquid (broth or water). The chicken/pear combo was popular here, too.

Have fun! I LOVED cooking for my daughter!

PS – The other answers that say not to cook for your child because baby foods are “special” are ridiculous. What do you think people did for THOUSANDS of years before Gerber? Baby food in jars is the baby equivalent of TV dinners – they are convenience items, and it won’t hurt anything to use them sparingly, but they’re not optimal for everyday meals. Think of all the preservatives and additives (sugar and salt, etc.) that they have to use to keep things the right color – specifically bananas, that turn black almost immediately once they’re mashed. You can feed your baby jarred bananas, and give them all the preservatives, or you can feed them BANANAS. Which one do you think nature intended your baby to eat?

You don’t want to give your baby a lot of citrus, because of the acid. It makes their pee acidic, then they sit in it until you realize they’re wet, and they end up with rash. I think the carrot thing is baloney, too. The same people who worry about the nitrates in carrots end up feeding their kids lunch meat and hot dogs later, and they’re loaded with the stuff. You’re not supposed to give kids under 4-6 months solid foods, anyway, so if the nitrates are only a problem for kids under 3 months, it’s a non-issue.

Mary asks…

What are some foods pregnant women should avoid and why?

Jimmy answers:

Raw Meats and Seafood including sushi – all uncooked and rare meats and seafood should be avoided due to high risk of listeria and salmonella poisoning.

Deli meats including hot dogs – these deli meats might be contaminated with listeria bacteria which may result in miscarriage or even a stillbirth. It’s safe to eat deli meats if you reheat them until steaming hot.

Refrigerated smoked seafood – for the same reason of listeria contamination. It is safe if they are contained in cooked dishes. Canned and shelf-stable versions are safe to eat.

Raw eggs – raw eggs may contain salmonella. Some Caesar salad dressings, mayonnaise, homemade ice cream and custards as well as Hollandaise sauces may be made with raw eggs. It is best to check with your server in a restaurant; if in doubt, it is best to avoid it. In addition, unpasteurized eggnog should be avoided.

Fish high in mercury – avoid high-mercury fish such as Shark, Swordfish, King Mackerel and Tilefish. Also limit fish intake to no more than 2 servings per week. For more info – read Is it Safe to eat Fish during Pregnancy?

Soft cheese – avoid the following soft cheeses: Feta, Brie, and Camembert cheeses, blue-veined cheeses, queso blanco, queso fresco and Panela. They are safe to eat if they are labelled pasteurized.

Refrigerated pâtes or meat spreads – for the same reason of listeria contamination. It is safe to eat the canned or shelf-stable versions.

Liver – liver is a rich source of iron. However it contains a high level of Vitamin A. Large amounts of Vitamin A can be harmful to the baby.

Unpasteurized milk and juices

Alcohol – many documented fetal abnormalities and birth defects have been associated with alcohol use during pregnancy.
