6 Celeb Moms Who Make Their Own Baby Food

What's inside that little glass jar may seem wholesome, but when it's store-bought, do you really know what you're putting inside your baby's mouth? Former actress and mom of three Liza Huber, daughter of actress Susan Lucci, has made it her mission to educate others about the importance of feeding your children only the finest ingredients that nature has to offer (whipped up with love by mom, of course).
It's easier than you'd think. Some of Hollywood's busiest moms are already doing it for their little ones! We asked Huber to pinpoint six celebrity moms and offer recipes that they (and the little ones!) would love from her popular cookbook Sage Spoonfuls.

January JonesJanuary Jones
1. January Jones: Mad Men star January Jones' cutie, Xander, is 7 months old and likely ready for some new tastes and textures.
"Healthy, no-cook purees are time-saving ways for busy moms to provide healthy homemade meals for their babies," Huber says. "This black bean banana mash is one of my favorites, a delicious and completely unexpected combo that Xander would most certainly gobble up."

Denise RichardsDenise Richards
2. Denise Richards: At 9 months old, Denise Richard's beautiful new daughter Eloise Joni is old enough to eat many of the same things her big sisters, Sam and Lola.
"As a busy working mom, having healthy meals that can feed all three children is certainly the way to go [for Denise]. One of my favorite family meals is a simple roast chicken. It is a healthy, delicious meal the whole family can enjoy together. All Denise has to do is put a little of the chicken and roasted veggies into a food processor and puree to the appropriate texture for Eloise!" 

Tori SpellingTori Spelling
3. Tori Spelling: With children Liam, Stella, Hattie, and now a fourth baby on the way, Tori Spelling is definitely one of the busiest mamas in Hollywood.
"At 6 months old, Hattie is still a new eater," Huber says. "One of the best first foods for ababy 4-6 months old is roasted butternut or acorn squash. They are nutrient rich, easy to digest, and not allergenic. An added bonus is that one large butternut squash yields about 25 ounces of baby food, saving mom's precious time by only having to cook once and freeze the rest." 

Jessica CapshawJessica Capshaw
4. Jessica Capshaw: Grey's Anatomy starJessica Capshaw has two children and a third on the way.
"For a busy, working and expectant mom , easy-to-prepare meals are key to save time and stress. This muscle man stir-fry recipe is chock full of grains and veggies and is a healthy go-to weeknight meal for the whole family."

Jessica AlbaJessica Alba
5. Jessica Alba: Jessica Alba is playing more roles than just mom and movie star these days. The new mogul and mom-of-two started theHonest Company, which provides parents with healthy and non-toxic products for their families.
"She knows the benefits of homemade baby food and makes her own for her beautiful babygirl Haven. At 7 months old, Haven is ready for new tastes and textures. One of my favorite foods for this stage is lentils. They are nutritional powerhouses and blend well with lots of other foods," Huber says. 

Ali LandryAli Landry
6. Ali Landry: TV Host and SpokesMoms founder Ali Landry may seem super busy, but she still finds time to make sure her kids are eating right.
"Ali's baby boy, Marcello, is 5 months old and ready to start eating solids," Huber says. "A wonderful first food for a baby is pear puree. It is non- allergenic, easy to digest, and babies lovethe taste. It can also be soothing to a baby suffering from acid reflux. As an added bonus, cool pear puree straight from the refrigerator is very soothing on a teething baby's sore gums."

Am really impressed with what they do, if they can do, why can,t  we?

Making your own baby food is so much more cost effective if you have a picky eater or a tight budget. My son totally hated store bought baby food and wouldn't eat any of it. So, I started making homemade baby food and he loves it.

I make my own food for my baby too. Not only do I want her to eat healthy homemade food, she is also allergic to eggs, nuts and shellfish so I'm pretty scared to give her anything that I didn't really know where it came from or what is in it... Found u on MBC..
