Prepping Baby's First Solid Foods

Beginning solid foods is an exciting time for mamas and babies alike. Funny faces, eager babies, and big messes! My little lady, Everly, is just about 6-months-old, which means we’ll be starting solid foods soon and while she has no idea of what’s to come, I’m getting prepped, starting with stocking up our homemade baby food supply.

Tips & Tricks for Prepping Baby Food

Baby food prep made easy… and tasty!

I tried making my own purées with my first child, but never developed a good routine to stay ahead of her appetite. It’s amazing how much food you go through, even though they hardly seem to actually be eating more than a spoonful or two! This time, I decided to get a jump start on prepping some homemade baby foods with my new secret weapon, the Babymoov Nutribaby.

I started by making a few basic veggie purées, as well as a handful of more complex recipes with inspiration from the Babymoov app on my iPhone. I think Everly is really going to love her mixed vegetable soup… and I might even get her big sis to have a taste, too!

An all-in-one baby food machine

It was so easy to steam, blend, and freeze the purées in individual portions using the Nutribaby. I love that the system is all in one, so I didn’t have to purchase separate devices to steam and to blend her food, but I can still cook the ingredients separately, thanks to the two individual baskets — the Nutribaby does it all.

Another major feature about the Nutribaby is that we can use it both before and after our short-lived baby food months. Before she starts eating, I can use it to sterilize and warm her baby food jars. And, once we’re out of the baby food stage, I can use it to prep dinner for the girls (and us!), to steam whole veggies as a healthy side for dinner or to whip up a smoothie in the morning.
