Variety of learning opportunities – Private and Group

Introducing solids to your baby is an exciting time, but this transition may also feel a bit overwhelming. You will have a lot of questions when it is time to begin. One of the most important questions you will have as a parent is whether to use commercial baby food or to make homemade baby food. Making your own baby food is a fun, easy, reliable, and a healthy experience you share together.


Meal Planning that Results in Cost Savings

You save money; not only in the cost of the actual food, but in the nutrient ratio as well.
You get more nutrients for you dollar and your baby gets more nutrients for his growing body.

The amount spent on services will help the parent to make better choices when buying food and to do it themselves. A jar of baby food begins at a cost of $.59 up to $1.50. Your baby’s appetite will grow and you will offer two jars per meal for three meals a day, and there will be snacks in between. During this period you can spend up to $10.00 day for between 4 to 6 months if not longer. The store bought brands can cost about $500 or more. Taste & See Healthy Baby Food can teach you how to make your own and how to cut cost to where you spend about one third of the cost.
