Did you know cooking for your baby is just as easy as cooking for the whole family? There are many ways to heat and thaw homemade baby food. On this page we will tell you all about heating and thawing your homemade baby food cubes.

Cooking Baby Food – What are the best cooking methods for preparing homemade baby food?

When venturing into the world of baby food making, one of the most often asked questions is “How should I cook the foods that I will be making for my baby to maintain the most nutrients and flavor?”

There are several ways that you can cook foods for homemade baby food. This page will discuss the ways of cooking that are best for fruits, veggies and meats.

Cooking Fruits and Veggies for Homemade Baby Food

Baking/Roasting and Steaming are the preferred methods to use when cooking homemade baby food (and your food too!) with boiling in scant amounts of water being the second best method.

Foods such as sweet potato, white potato, carrots, parsnips and squash, peaches and pears are wonderfully flavorful when baked.

** Most pediatric sources recommend cooking fruits for babies who are under 8 months old. Bananas and avocado are an exception. For infants who start solids prior to 6 months old, cooking fruits is a good idea. Cooking fruits breaks them down thus enabling easier digestion in an immature tummy. An older baby will be better able to handle the fibers and sugars of raw fruits than will the baby who is younger and just starting on solids. There are many babies who do quite well with raw fruits from 6 months of age on so use your best judgement and consult your pediatrician about the need to cook fruits. Visit Baking Fruits for Baby for some tasty baked fruit recipes and ideas.

Cooking Meats for Homemade Baby Food

Baking is preferred as the most nutrients are retained. Typically, meat purees are best made with plain water as using the natural juices may make the taste too strong for baby; adding a fruit or veggie puree is a great way to introduce the flavor of meats.

Crock pot or Slow-Cooker to Cook Meat for Baby Food – Using a crock pot or a slow-cooker to make meats for baby is a wonderful way to make a multi food combination meal. You may toss any foods that you want into the crock pot with the meat.

One of our favorite things to do is to take 3 chicken breasts (diced), a few carrots (diced and peeled), a diced onion and some other veggies and toss the whole lot into the pot. Add 4 or 5 cups of water and seasonings of your choice. All you need to do is turn the crock pot or slow-cooker on low and within 6-8 hours you have a nice meal.

If you poach or use a crock-pot (cook meats in liquids) and then throw away the juices, you are tossing out some nutrients as well so be sure to try and add those back into the finished meal!


I have included information regarding cooking in the microwaving due to the fact that many parents prefer to cook their foods this way. I believe that baking and steaming are the best cooking methods for optimal nutrient retention; microwaving food should be a last option whenever possible.


Methods of Cooking for Baby Food

Below is an outline of the different methods of cooking food and how nutritional content is affected. It covers all forms of cooking.

Steaming – This is one of the most preferred methods of cooking. By this method, nutrient loss in minimal. Left over water may be used as stock and for pureeing.

The longer any type of food is exposed to high temperatures and immersed in water, the higher the nutrient loss. (Can you imagine the nutrient loss in commercial baby foods that are cooked at sky-high temperatures to help prolong shelf life?.) Steaming as a cooking method helps foods retain their levels of water soluble vitamins too. Vitamin C is an important water soluble vitamin that helps aid in the absorption of iron. Steaming allows the foods to be surrounded by steam rather than soaked in water.

Boiling and Stewing – The disadvantage; it leads to loss of nutrients (esp. water soluble vitamins (B&C) and minerals). Loss can be limited by using the needed amount of water for cooking/for required time. Left over water could be used as stock and for pureeing.

Baking or Roasting – Baking or Roasting is cooking by dry heat in the oven. The advantage – large quantities of food can be cooked and there is a limited loss of nutrients and the food is easily digestible.

Microwave Cooking – The disadvantages of microwave cooking are that food is cooked in small quantities and some foods may lose nutrients at a very high rate. The flavor and nutritive values of most vegetables are good in comparison with other methods.

You may use a microwave for cooking if you prefer – the main disadvantage to this is that large batches of foods typically cannot be made at one time; many people find that the use of a microwave is unhealthy and potentially dangerous.

The amount of nutrients that are “destroyed” by a microwave varies by the type of food that you are cooking. There are some foods whose nutrients are retained better when microwaved than when steamed or boiled for example. Broccoli is said to be one food that may lose a vast majority of its nutrients when microwaved, more so than any other vegetable. However the study done on broccoli and the microwave is being negated due to the faulty methodology used.

Pressure Cooking – Loss of nutrient is less in this method since only little water is used.

Frying – Do frying only if required. Shallow frying is much better than deep frying. Deep frying at high temperature can produce toxic chemicals such as peroxides, aldehydes, ketones, hydroperoxidases, cyclic monomeres etc. Preferably avoid reusing the fried oil. We prefer to “fry” in a small amount of olive oil – rather like sauteeing.

Grilling – In this method, if the food is burnt with coals and fire, it can cause carcinogenic effect. Babies and small children should not be served grilled foods constantly.


Remember, always consult with your pediatrician regarding introducing solid foods to your baby and specifically discuss any foods that may pose allergy risks for your baby.

    Baby food biscuits

    Children's instant porridge makes delicious cookies. Making this dish is very easy. You need about 200 g of this mixture. You will also need 100 g of butter, 1 glass of water and the same amount of sugar. Flour should be prepared in advance half a cup. Additionally, 1 chicken egg and a little soda (half a small spoon) are required, which will need to be paid off.

    First mix the sugar and the egg and then beat them. Now you need to wait 10 minutes for the sugar to dissolve. Then you should prepare all the other ingredients for the dough and pour them into a large bowl. At first it seems that there is a lack of moisture in the dough, but then the mixture is saturated with water. You just need to keep stirring the mass.

    Now you need to leave the resulting dough for 20-30 minutes so that it begins to swell. Only then add more flour and knead again. The dough will turn out very tender, and even a beginner can work with it. It doesn't stick to fingers. It is allowed to add a little vanilla for a pleasant aroma. Now it remains to roll out a piece of dough and cut out various figures from it using special molds. The child will like it very much. If they are not at hand, then you can get by with balls. You just need to pinch off small pieces from the total mass and roll them into small balls. More figurines can be made with your own hands or cut with a knife.

    Then you need to grease a baking sheet with vegetable oil and put pieces of dough on it. The distance between the figures should be small, since the dough itself will not rise much in the oven, but will only brown. When the cookies are ready, it remains only to sprinkle with powdered sugar and treat the whole family.

    Other recipes

    Baby formula biscuits are very easy to make. You can use other recipes. Usually it takes a little time for the whole process, but the resulting sweets will be no worse in taste and aroma than those that can be purchased at the store. It turns out the dough is not quite shortbread, but at the same time not biscuit - something in between, but very tasty and soft.

    • Raisin cookies.

    You will need to take baby food - about 200 g. You also need 100 g of sugar, butter. Flour needs 250 g, and water 200 ml. Additionally, a pinch of soda, 1 chicken egg and 50 g of raisins are required. By the way, the latter must first be washed and held for some time in warm water so that it swells. These ingredients will be enough for 6 servings.

    First you need to mix the sugar with the egg and beat until a homogeneous mass is obtained. Then melt the butter over low heat, then cool and add the egg-sugar mixture. Mix everything thoroughly. Then add water, pour baby food and mix. Do not touch the dough temporarily so that it swells a little. Then you need to add soda, after extinguishing it, and flour. Mix everything again so that there are no lumps. Lastly, add the raisins. Before you bake the dough, first you need to hold it in the freezer. Then, while sculpting the figures, it will not stick to the fingers. Then roll out into a sheet. Its thickness should be no more than 1 cm. Cut out the figures. Bake them for 20 minutes, but the temperature in the oven should not exceed 180 ° C.

    • Cookies with cocoa.

    You will need 100 g of water for 300 g of baby food. It also requires 250 g of sugar, 50 g of cocoa and 200 g of butter. First you need to mix water and sugar and boil the liquid. Then add oil to it and boil again. The syrup will become thicker. Baby food should be mixed with cocoa and poured into sweet syrup in small portions. To prevent lumps from forming, stir constantly. The dough must be warm. Figures are prepared from it and baked in the oven. Top with chocolate.

    Cake and pie

    If you are concerned about what can be prepared from infant formula, then not only cookies, but also other delicacies are an excellent solution. Here are the most popular recipes:

    • Pie.

    Ordinary infant formula can be used to make a delicious cake. You only need 2 cups of this product. One of them will go for the cream and the other for the cake itself. In addition, you need to take a glass of flour, sour cream, sugar. You also need 4 eggs and half a small spoonful of baking powder.

    Mix sugar, flour, baby formula and beat the eggs. All this can be done manually, using a regular whisk, or using a mixer. The cake should be without lumps, so the dough should be thoroughly kneaded. The consistency should be medium - and not thick, and not overly liquid mass. It should be about the same as high-quality fat sour cream. Then the resulting dough must be poured into a pie mold, which is previously thoroughly greased with sunflower or butter. Now you need to put the mold in the oven, which is already heated to 200 ° C. The cake will be ready in about half an hour. After that, the product should cool down a bit and only then is it allowed to get it out of its shape and cut it. If you wish, you can sprinkle powdered sugar on top or decorate everything with pieces of fruit.

    • Cake.

    "Baby" mixes are perfect for making a delicious cake. For the test, you need about a glass of such a product. The same amount of flour and 200 g of sugar. In addition, you will need a bag of baking powder and a couple of eggs. But a cake without cream will not be as tasty. To prepare it, you need 0.5 cups of milk mixture and sour cream, and another 100 g of sugar.

Grease a baking dish and pour the resulting dough into it. The cake will be delicious. The dough should be in the oven until it acquires a golden hue at a medium temperature.

    But the cake won't work without cream. To prepare it, you need to mix baby food with sugar and sour cream and beat. The resulting cake just needs to be poured with such a thick cream, and then put in the refrigerator to harden. The cream will cool and take shape, harden.

    Pancakes and roll

    Many delicious dishes can be obtained from infant formula. Pancakes are the easiest option. And there is also an interesting roll.

    • Pancakes.

    The composition of the basic composition for pancakes includes 18-20 large spoons of infant formula. You will also need 0.5 g of water and 1.5 large tablespoons of any vegetable oil. In addition, you need to prepare a couple of eggs in advance and sugar and salt to taste. You will also need flour, but it will need to be added a little - as needed. Infant formula should be mixed with water. Then add sugar, some salt and eggs. Then mix thoroughly again. Then add flour, adding only a spoonful and slowly stirring. The mass should be completely homogeneous, with a consistency like sour cream.

    Then it is necessary to leave it for half an hour to infuse it. After that, add a little vegetable oil, mix and start baking pancakes, preheating the pan well. It also needs to be lubricated with vegetable oil before the first pancake. Then each finished pancake is smeared with butter.

    • Roll.

    Baby formula makes a delicious roll. This is also an interesting dish, but very simple to prepare. At the end, you get a soft and juicy delicacy that is perfect for tea drinking. To prepare it, you need to take a glass of ordinary milk powder. This is about 7 large spoons. The same amount of sugar is needed (but it is allowed to reduce or increase depending on taste) and flour. You will also need a few eggs (up to three) and a little soda, or instead of the usual baking powder. As a filling, jam, jam or something else to taste is used.

    To prepare the roll, you need to take the composition of the children and mix it with sugar and flour. Then soda is added and eggs are driven in. All ingredients must be thoroughly mixed to form a liquid mass similar to sour cream.

    Next, you need to prepare a tracing paper or special paper for baking. You can also use a standard baking sheet, but this option is no longer so convenient. The dough is poured there, after lubricating the surface with vegetable oil. After that, they are sent to the oven. It takes from 15 minutes to half an hour - it depends on the temperature. When the dough becomes soft, but not yet dense, then it should be taken out of the oven, greased with the filling and wrapped, giving the shape of a roll. Top can be decorated with cinnamon, chocolate, powdered sugar, other spices and sweets.

    Candy making

    Infant formula not only produces excellent pastries, but also delicious sweets. For example, the following recipes are suitable:

    • Truffles.

    Approximately 4.5 cups of infant formula is required for this. It is better to choose the product "Baby". 4 cups will be needed specifically for the sweets themselves, and another half cup is for rolling. Additionally, you need to take 50 g of coconut and butter, 4 tablespoons of cocoa, a little less than a glass of milk and 2.5 cups of sugar.

    To make truffles at home, you first need to mix cocoa, milk, sugar and butter. Then put the mass on low heat and keep it until the sugar dissolves. Be sure to stir. Then cool and continue to stir so that the mixture becomes thicker and resembles dough. Now you need to knead it with your hands and give it the shape of balls. Then they should be rolled in baby formula and coconut flakes.

    • Candies with nuts.

    You can make delicious sweets with a different recipe using infant formula. It is best to also take the package "Baby". In addition, you will need 150 g of walnuts and butter, and another half a cup of milk, a couple of tablespoons of cocoa and a pack of waffles. First you need to mix milk, butter and cocoa. Boil over low heat for a few minutes, then cool. Now add baby formula. Then add the walnuts, but first chop them. Stir everything. When the mass thickens, you need to knead it with your hands and form cones. Now the wafers need to be broken and chopped with a grater, and then roll sweets in them.

    As a conclusion

    Infant formula recipes are numerous. You can always pick up something to taste for yourself and your baby. In addition, such pastries come out very tasty and healthy. Moreover, if the rest of the infant formula was found at home, then it can not be thrown away, but used correctly. Even such a composition for preparing food for a child is a very useful addition to dishes, especially baking, so that it can be easily used. In addition, this product is safe, as it does not contain dyes, flavors and other chemical additives. And the preparation of baking from such a mixture is very simple.

It turns out that such a necessary product for babies as milk formula can be useful in the kitchen of any housewife.

Moreover, in terms of its composition, it is one of the most useful products created by science.

Mother's milk substitute is sometimes a must because in today's stressful life some mothers don't have enough food for their beloved baby. This is where infant formula comes to the rescue, which comes in different types (lactose-free, goat's milk, fruit, fortified, and so on) and from various brands of manufacturers that differ both in quality and in composition.

Often, this product costs a lot of money, because dad and mom do not feel sorry for anything for a newborn child.

Composition of infant formula is the concentration of nutrients, trace elements, vitamins, light fats and carbohydrates, as well as protein that does not cause allergic reactions. This product is made with special care, as it is eaten by the smallest children who are just starting their life journey.

The best baby food brands always include ingredients such as:

  • taurine – a trace element that helps break down fats;
  • calcium - simply necessary for a growing body, also preventing rickets and other possible childhood diseases;
  • vitamin D3 - helps calcium to be better absorbed, and also develops vision;
  • easily digestible fats and carbohydrates - they should be no more than 2-3%, but must be present;
  • L-carotene can also be one of the components, which also affects the breakdown of fats by the child's body and the overall development of the nervous system and brain;
  • vitamins of group B, as well as A, E, PP - the baby must receive a balanced composition of these elements for proper and full development;
  • Protein is the main ingredient in any infant formula, a non-allergic element composed of 60% whey elements and 40% casein.

If you want to get not only a tasty, but also an infinitely healthy meal for the whole family, you should approach the choice of infant formula with all responsibility, since, unfortunately, some manufacturers neglect the rules for manufacturing this product: there are often cases when This product contains undesirable food additives.

So, what are the best infant formulas ? A quality product for babies will not contain any dyes or food additives. In the composition indicated on the package, only natural ingredients should be present, including vitamins, trace elements (almost always calcium and taurine), easily digestible fats and hypoallergenic protein.

If in the list of components you saw elements with complex, incomprehensible names, then most likely the manufacturer hides unacceptable additives under them. It is also desirable that there is no palm oil in baby food, the negative impact of which has already been proven by multiple studies.

Having chosen the optimal composition of the mixture, you can safely start cooking new dishes, and they are ideal for children who are just starting to introduce complementary foods. This food may already be familiar to them (with artificial feeding) or similar in composition to mother's milk.

No matter how surprising it may sound, this product can be used to quickly and easily prepare real sweets. This culinary masterpiece will be appreciated not only by the younger members of the family, but also by adults.

Infant formula candy recipe is very simple - you don’t have to bake anything and cook for a long time.

The easiest way to prepare them is as follows:

  • Mix infant formula and ice cream until fairly thick.
  • Prepare the chocolate or waffle topping ahead of time: instant cocoa powder or crushed waffles (walnuts also work).
  • After wetting your hands in water so that the mass does not stick to them, make balls of the same size.
  • Dip each in the sprinkles, place on a plate or other dish and place in the freezer for a couple of hours until completely set.

Truffles candy can be safely called another exquisite and certainly tasty delicacy for the sweet tooth from infant formula. The recipe also does not require you to invest money, effort or time.


Everything is extremely simple and cheap:

  • half a glass of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 50 grams of butter
  1. Take a saucepan and melt the butter over low heat, mix it with all the sugar, milk and cocoa.
  2. Having thoroughly mixed everything, let the mass cool a little and only then we begin to add the main ingredient - pour until our chocolate mass becomes very thick.
  3. So that future sweets do not stick to your hands, soak them in water and, pinching a little from the total mass of the dough, mold round or truffle-shaped sweets.
  4. You can put the resulting sweets in the refrigerator, and it is even better to keep them there all the time until the dessert is completely eaten.
  5. You can improve the recipe in a simple way - sprinkle the finished product with cocoa, the same remaining milk mixture or roll each piece in ground peanuts or walnuts.
