The regular price for Gerber 1st foods is 1.19 for two cups (not actual CUPS as in the measurement, but their little plastic things.) This is equal to 4 ice cubes of baby food (2 ice cubes is one jar of baby food!)
The apples steaming!
I made the baby food this morning (didn't use 4 of the bananas, remember?) and in all I got 4 1/4 ice cube trays of baby food. With 16 Ice cubes per tray... That's 68 Ice cubes of baby food or 34 Jars of baby food or 17 of those gerber 1st food packs. It would have cost me $20.23 for that many jars of baby food. But instead I spent only $4.43, saving $15.80.
I'm so excited. We are also adding cereal to the baby food to make it go a bit farther and thicken it up some. So far Maddie is LOVING this. She's a flavor girl and that plain cereal wasn't cutting it. I'm excited to see how long all this fruit I made will last. I think maybe later today or tomorrow I"m going to do the veggies I bought. I did buy those frozen instead of fresh, cause I don't know what to do with fresh peas and green beans. Oh, I did make a fresh butternut squash the other day though. I got a TON of baby food out of that, but didn't have the camera handy...
