Mealtime

Introducing solid food to your baby is an exciting milestone. Make healthy baby food at home by blending fresh, organic and whole ingredients with a Vitamix Total Nutrition Center (try this baby food purée recipe or pick up a copy of The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet). You can also buy tasty, organic pre-made baby food—a great option when you’re pinched for time. We love Mother Hen and Healthy Sprouts, which both offer a complete line of organic and natural frozen foods. And because mealtime can be messy, add this eco-conscious essential: a bib made from renewable cork.
