    Default Homemade baby food 9m+

    Hi all can anyone tell me how to make home made food that's like the jar food for 9m+
    It has little lumps and cut veg but is still thick and has a sauce so it's not all lumps together and the veg pieces are soft but still cubed
    is it just purée and added cut veg?
    Im trying to replica a chicken veg bbolognsse and what pasta do people use for the noodle part!

    Thanks so much!!

    I made spaghetti with greated carrot, sliced mushroom. If cook the pasta then just cut it up.

    At that age everything was chunky so is cube all veggies steam for a short amount then freeze. I'd add that to purée mash or the spaghetti sauce.

    Risoni pasta is fantastic for that age, it's a tiny bit bigger than rice.

    I second the rissoni pasta, DD has it with no probs (8mo). I also make risotto and rice dishes, and use soup pasta if I run out of rissoni.

    Thanks for all the replies
    so how do I make the saucy bit of chicken and veg?

    Pure veg?

    I find just mashing the cooked food with a fork leaves the lumps but creates a "sauce" of sorts with the veg.
    I don't think the jar foods actually have a sauce as such, its just the puree.
    Any pasta works really, if you mash it with the vegies it ends up a good size.

    Some foods I make for my DS who is just on 9 months are -

    Veg & Brown Rice - any veg really but most recent batch was carrot, zuchini, corn and spinach, then mashed with the cooked brown rice. Add the cooking water until the texture's right.

    Pear & Date Rice Cereal - steam diced pears, a few chopped dates and a pinch of cinnamon, and puree with an equal amount of cooked rice (I use brown but white works just as well).

    Roast veg and Ricotta - roasted potato, pumpkin, and Carrot mashed up with some ricotta and made gooey with either homemade stock or boiled water.

    Tuna, Veg and Pasta - mashed together, with a little bit of grated cheese on top.

    Also adding corn or peas to a puree mix gives the lumps they need.

    I usually give my DS his meat whole (ie a chunk of chicken or steak to suck on or I make chicken or salmon patties for a finger food.

    Yep - mash veg & pasta with a fork.

    Finely cut up your meat.

    You can also add some grated cheese to help "bind" your mash.
