You can buy a case of Gerber Green Beans on line - 56oz for $20.72 (doesn't count shipping) = $0.37/oz
Earth's Best Organic Green Beans at Walmart (12 pack) - 30oz for $13.08 = $0.44/oz
Home made using frozen Great Value Green beans: 1 pkg beans $1.08
made 10oz of puree = $0.11/oz. That's a savings of $0.26 and $0.33 / oz! It sounds so small, but once your baby is eating 6oz per day, your saving at least $1.50 A DAY! Plus if your little one likes them thinner, you get more from one bag or you can make them thinner if you like to add cereal for iron or something. Plus, no preservatives!
I'm very excited to make squash and pumpkin. They take a little more time cause I think they taste best if you bake them, but you get a lot of food from them.
Oh yeah and I don't mind licking this food off my fingers (as is habit while I'm feeding her). If it tastes better to me, it must taste better to her.
Here's Little miss trying her beans for the first time!
