When making homemade baby food, I use our own homegrown veggies. I then cook the veggies a little till soft and puree it in the blender. Then I portion out servings in ice cube trays. Freeze till solid and pop into freezer bags for later use. Then all I have to do is put out the portion I need for a couple of days in a container in the fridge. A lot less work and cheaper than buying baby food.

If your baby still is still on strained baby food, instead of expensive store bought jars, just put fresh cooked or steamed veggies and fruit in your food processor. If you have leftover, you can also freeze it.
