Gerber Baby Food DisclosureWho would have thought that leftover baby food would make a fantastic ingredient for all sorts of scrumptious recipes? I know I didn’t, back when my older boys graduated to regular food from baby cereal and baby food. It just wasn’t something I’d ever really thought about. Going through a few rough patches in our life together has really given us a desire to not waste anything… I won’t say we never waste anything, but we’re a lot more mindful of it and it stings when something is wasted. Now that we’re about to have another baby, I’ve stocked up on a few things, and some of those things I’m already using in scrumptious recipes we can enjoy now.Before you throw it out, here are a few scrumptious ideas for what to do with all of that nutritious leftover baby food, including recipes for muffins, breads, bite-sized treats, snacks for kids, and more.

The ideas are endless. There are so many ways you can use baby oatmeal, from adding it to smoothies, breads, cookies, meatballs… No chucking that box of baby cereal when baby’s done with it. Instead, I’ll find delicious ways to add that nutrition to different recipes we create, whether for meal time, snacks, or dessert.

Below are several ideas for using Gerber baby food and baby cereal in different recipes. I can’t wait to try a lot of these myself.

  1. I am amazed at what you can do with baby foods. This is such an awesome find! I would make some kind of bread with mine.

  2. I have actually used Lilttle Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry to mix into my husbands plain oatmeal for flavor. My little man used to waste so much baby food. So a lot of the time I would use the rest in our morning oatmeal. But yes, its a great idea to use left overs and not let them go to waste! I thought I was the only one to do this because I’m so cheap when it comes to food. Its outrageously expensive these days..

  3. You could easily prepare the robotic vacuum cleaner, just making sure that garments, documents,
    and also any type of cords are not in the method and afterwards just push the start switch and also
    you ready to go. The vacuuming robots work
    on carpet, wood floorings, linoleum, as well as concrete.
