There are so many benefits to making your own baby food. You save money, avoid waste, and avoid preservatives and other unwanted ingredients in packaged foods. Of course, we all pick up a jar or two when time doesn’t allow for homemade. But with a few basic utensils and a freezer, it shouldn’t be too hard to have some homemade purees on hand.
It’s especially simple in the beginning when you are sticking to one ingredient. Simply plan on making the rest of your family mashed sweet potatoes or sweet peas for dinner and then mash up a batch with a bit of breastmilk and store in freezer portions.
But when you are ready to get a bit more adventurous, the Freshfoods Cook-n-Blend Baby Food Maker is the perfect universal tool to become your very own baby gourmet. The dual-action function steams and blends food for quick, nutritious meals in two easy steps. Healthy steam cooking helps preserve vitamins and minerals and a double steamer basket separates food to help preserve flavors. It makes up to four meals at a time with large 32oz bowl. And, importantly, it is dishwasher safe and easy to clean.
I’m hoping that making some exciting new entrees for baby #2 will help expand her palette, although my once adventurous first baby is now a 3-year-old who will eat nothing but macaroni and cheese.
The Freshfoods Cook- n-Blend Baby Food Maker retails for $99.99, but for a limited time, a $20 coupon is available online along with a $1 coupon for any Freshfoods accessory.
