Smoothies are great options too. They are easy to prepare so you can avoid store bought ones (usually high in sugar). Make the smoothies using food that your baby has eaten before and had shown no allergic reaction to. Like what Vanessa mentioned, ff you are introducing new food in the smoothie, make sure you only have one new food in the blend and observe for 3-4 days. In the event that your baby displays any allergic symptom, you can isolate the ingredient that is causing the reaction.

You can consider preparing purees (both veggies + fruits) in bulk and freezing them for future use. Simply puree the fruits and vegetables of your choice and pour them into ice cube trays. Cover the trays with plastic wrap and proceed to freeze. Each puree cube should yield 1 ounce of food. When they are frozen, remove them from the trays and place them in freezer safe ziplock bags. Be sure to label them (type of puree and date prepared). These purees should be good for a month. When it's time to feed baby, remove from the bags, thaw and reheat. http://wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com/pureebabyfoodandstore.htm
