Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Today I want to share a product that my son and daughter-in-law recently started using to introduce their baby to solid food. It’s called Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker! #beabababycook
When our son and DIL were expecting their first baby, naturally they researched which items were “must-have’s” for their baby registry. One item that came up repeatedly was a product called, Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker. This machine simultaneously cooks and steams raw food and vegetables, then purees them into the creamy consistency of baby food. The machine they chose is the duo, which means you can steam two things at once and retails for around $200. The Beaba is also available in a single-sided machine for about $150. @beabababycook
When it came time to start their baby on solid food, my son and his wife carefully researched over-the-counter baby food and were concerned with the number of additives and preservatives. I was curious when they told me this so I googled “ingredients in baby food”. On a very WELL-KNOWN baby food website it said that “70-80% of the foods we eat in the US have ingredients made from genetically modified crops” and that the USDA (US Food and Drug Admin.) have found the genetically modified crops are as safe and nutritious as traditional crops.” Hmmmm. It also adds that “some” families are looking for more traditional options (such as real food?) so they offer organic baby food with no GMO’s. We all know that when you see the word organic, you can add dollar signs. So, while this baby food machine may seem pricey, you might consider the cost savings of NOT buying traditional baby food in jars filled with all of the additives and GMO’s. (for several years)
Thus, our kids decided to skip all of the unknowns and make their own healthy baby food for their little prince. Following their pediatrician’s advice, they began to introduce one food per week to their son at around 6 months. These days doctors encourage just one food item per week to monitor the baby for potential food allergies. They first began with simple carrots. Using the Beaba machine, they added water to the reservoir and fresh carrots. The machine steams the veggies until they are done. The machine signals when cooking is complete with a light and a buzzer. Then you drain the water and place the veggies back into the machine with a bit of reserved water. Blend until the desired consistency! Ingredients: Carrots and water. Period. All in less than 15-20 minutes! See how their little guy loves his carrots?
When you make your own baby food using this Beaba Babycook machine, it makes plenty at a time. You can refrigerate it or even freeze it for later. This is really handy when babies are only supposed to have one veggie or fruit at a time for a week. And by steaming the food, it retains all of its natural vitamins and nutrients. So far, the kids have tried green beans, apples and sweet potatoes, in addition to carrots. And he loves them all! Beaba even offers a cookbook for more ideas as baby gets older, and his or her palette expands. (I can’t resist another picture of our precious grandson! Perhaps the new Beaba spokes-baby?)
Our son loves to cook so he’s really enjoyed using this Beaba machine for their baby. And as grandparents, we love the fact our grandson is being fed THE best natural and healthy food available! Two thumbs up for this product! So, if you are expecting a baby, be sure to include this on your baby registry. Or if you are looking for an amazing and wonderful baby gift, consider this!
