Celebrity Moms Who Make Their Own Baby Food (Photos)

Tori Spelling makes her own baby food

Bust out the food processor or other latest food gadget!  Making your own baby food is healthy and en vogue among Hollywood moms.

While some celebrity moms started making their own baby food right away, others took some time before going homemade.

Pregnant with her third baby, Tori Spelling admits to feeding her kids jarred baby food when they were babies.  But one day, the reality TV star took out her food processor and made her own baby food.  She has never opened a jar baby food since.

Of her daughter Stella, Tori said:  “She would take the [jarred] food and she was fine with it. But once I made my own baby food…I literally gave it to her that first day, it was a spoonful, and her face lit up. She had this huge smile.”

The pregnant Spelling said, “It was so amazing. Ever since then, I’m like, I’m telling you: Make your own baby food. Because it’s such a huge difference for them.”

"We travel with a Babycook (Baby Food Maker) it's a little steamer and a grinder and so the first thing we do is try to find an organic store or food store and just buy all our groceries. Then we ask the hotel to put in a little fridge or empty out the mini-bar to put all the food in there and we try to make most of her food ourselves."
