After my little one has already turned one, I realized that I have an abundance of baby cereal and jarred food that I have gotten over the last few months. He is not too keen on eating it anymore so I had to think what I could use it in but of course it has to be disguised or no one will eat it. Here is a list of possibilities that we personally use in using up your leftover baby foods.
- use it to thicken soups—instead of using mashed potato flakes we use a box of baby rice cereal
- use it to thicken gravies–instead of using cornstarch we use baby rice cereal
- do some muffin or bread making—we use baby banana food in place of mashed bananas when making these
- make smoothies we use jarred banana instead of cut up fresh bananas
- buy baby applesauce, the only baby food, I believe, that tastes almost like regular adult food and serve to older children
- use applesauce in place of oils in bread, muffin, and cake recipes
- use any fruit to add to your waffle or pancake recipes for added flavor and nutrition
