Homemade baby food like a pro

In Baby by Kris StrangeLeave a Comment

Making homemade baby food is the best way to know exactly what is inside the food that your baby is eating. Fresh baby food can be made with local, organic and seasonal produce. I also use frozen vegetables, when I need to save on prep time.

You can also store the baby food in reusable containers, to help reduce your carbon footprint. Once babies start eating solids, they consume three food meals a day. One meal is usually a yogurt or oatmeal, where the other two are a fruit and vegetable mixture. To keep up with my hungry baby, I make large batches of homemade baby food a few times a week. Using the new Beaba Babycook Pro 2X has made the task of making baby food so much easier.

Making homemade baby food is easier than you think

Making baby food consists of cutting up fruit and vegetables, steaming them, then blending the food into the right consistency. Steam cooking locks in vitamins and nutrients, exactly what your growing baby needs. Before I owned the Beaba Babycook Pro 2X I would steam fruits and vegetables in a rice cooker, then use a hand blender. But, with a busy baby and toddler in the house, I needed a better process for making baby food.

Using the Beaba Babycook pro 2X is so easy, the machine has two cooking bowls, so you can make twice as much food. Just make sure to read the instructions when using the Beaba Babycook. Measure out the desired amount of water, pour water into the heating reservoir (I kept messing up this step), place chopped up ingredients in basket, lock bowl into device, push button to cook (if you messed up putting water into the reservoir the Babycook will not turn on!). Once the food is steamed you can either mix in breast milk, formula or the runoff water to blend the ingredients to the perfect consistency.

Narrow footprint and removable cord makes for easy storage

Counter space is always a premium, so an appliance that has a narrow footprint is key. The timer has an audible alert to tell you when meals are ready. And an auto-shut-off means no burnt food. The Babycook also comes with a spatula (don’t use your own spatula, the blades will cut it) a mixing lid for smoothies and a recipe booklet.

You will be making homemade baby food like a pro in no time with the Beaba Babycook Pro 2X. For more information about this product or other products made by Beaba click here.
