I love making my own baby food. It’s so easy with this Baby Brezza Baby Food Maker that I reviewed last week. It’s great knowing exactly what I’m feeding C. I don’t need to add anything to the fruits and vegetables – just steam, puree and freeze. It’s so cost-efficient, too. Three bananas made 18 servings of food for C!
I spent an hour or two this weekend making baby food for C. Now we’re stocked through the holidays!
Clockwise from top right: yams, bananas, pears, carrots, avocado, green beans, more yams and more bananas. Funny story about the yam – I thought I had purchased a sweet potato until I started peeling it and noticed it wasn’t orange.
Do you make your own baby food? What’s your baby’s favorite puree?
Making your own baby food can save you hundreds of dollars. That was enough to persuade me! I discovered that it’s actually a lot easier than it sounds, too. I’m not super-conscious of eating organic foods, but I love knowing exactly what I’m feeding my son.
The Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker makes my life even easier. With this little appliance, I can steam and blend C’s food in one step. Making some peas? Just fill the reservoir with water, pour the peas in the cup and set the steam and blend button to 20 minutes. Voila, 20 minutes later I have a supply of pureed peas that I can pour into my ice cube trays.
I’ve made purees out of sweet potatoes, avocados, pears, carrots, squash and peas. The Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker has handled all of them with ease. The appliance costs about $100 when you order from Amazon. It’s easy to use, easy to clean and doesn’t take up much space. When C is too old for purees, we’ll still be able to use it for other purposes. It was a fantastic purchase!
