Something to keep in mind when making baby food is that babies have very sensitive taste buds. They haven't deadend them like we adults have. Foods that might taste bland, or even slightly bitter to us, are quite tasty to babies. Keeping this in mind, I am very light with my seasonings, although, I do use them; even salt.

Unfortunately, one night while I was making green beans, I got a little heavy-handed with the salt. I didn't want to waste the food, yet I also knew it would be to salty. I have also notices that my son isn't too thrilled with strait green beans. I was able to find a solution to the problem. I mixed up some rice cereal, using formula (one could use breast milk to if they are lucky enough to still be producing!) and cut the green beans with that. It sort of made creamed green beans. My son loves it.

So, if you make baby food that is too spicy or your child doesn't like the taste, consider 'creaming' it with formula (or breastmilk) and rice cereal. It might just do the trick.

Green bean recipe

This is truely simple

Green beans with the ends cut off
pour water until it just covers the beans
salt lightly (optional)

Boil until tender, covered. Cool. Blend the beans and the water. Done.

A minute amount of salt is ok, usually it is already naturally occuring in foods just as natural sugars are. But yes, most people use too much salt anyway and refined sugar is not really needed by babies or adults.
