What do i do with this?

We don't do store bought baby food purees or baby cereal. But we had a huge bunch of it dropped of by a friend. So....what should I do with this? It's fruits, veggies and baby cereal.

Re: What do i do with this?

I made wayyyy to much baby food in our Baby Brezza and ended up mixing in a lot of the veggies and veggie blends in pasta sauce. The fruits I mixed into plain yogurt to make flavored yogurt. No clue on the cereal.

If you are willing to donate it, have you checked a local womens shelter? They often get moms there who might have littles that need a meal.

I can't find one that takes food...even in sealed packages. I've called most that I could fine...that was what I wanted to do anyways.

What about a church? My church gives out food every month and there are always moms in need of baby stuff.

If you don't want to feed them to your kids, then I would just pass them along to another family.

You can use the cereal to bulk up muffins for kids. I remember someone gave me some boxed cereal and I had a recipe that used the dry cereal to beef up the muffin.

These are not the recipes I used, as I cannot find the book, but here is a link that talks about using the cereals in baking. http://blogginaboutbabies.wordpress.com/2011/04/25/recipes-using-baby-cereal/

Maybe a food bank or community center with a pantry shelf. Or donate it to your local WIC office? Our WIC office has a community pantry shelf with bread and other items, I've seen people drop off stuff they don't want that they got in food boxes.
