When I am at home I prefer to feed my baby homemade baby food. She prefers the taste and texture of fresh baby food and I like to know exactly what is inside the food that she is eating. Homemade baby food can be made with local, organic and seasonal produce. I also use frozen vegetables, when I need to save on prep time. 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 vegetable and fruit 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 large batches of fresh baby food 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 was interested in trying out a better process for making baby food.
Beaba Babycook Pro 2X makes 9 cups of food in 15 min
Using the Beaba Babycook pro 2X is so easy, the machine has two cooking bowls, so you can make twice as much food. Measure out the desired amount of water, pour water into the heating reservoir, place chopped up ingredients in basket, lock bowl into device, push button to cook. 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.
The 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, a mixing lid for blending and a recipe booklet.
I really like the Beaba Babycook Pro 2x, but in all honesty using the rice cooker and hand blender got the job done and can save you almost $200. But, if you want to keep your food prep items separate from your babies food prep items (for allergy and hygienic reason) then the Beaba Babycook Pro 2X is a perfect option.
