My amazing co-workers gave me a Beaba Babycook and it is awesome! I love the fact that I only have one container to clean and can leave it, forget it while cooking. This thing steams and purees your food in the same bowl. Once done, I scoop into freezer trays and then bag them once frozen. I typically make several days worth so I don't have to worry about it later. Think two weeks of food made in one day! The cost is definitely a benefit as well. Even though I buy organic, we can probably feed Mary Tilman a week's worth of food for around $5 - $8.
For these early foods, I have made the purees quite smooth but am gradually working towards larger pieces. We are also mixing her fruits and veggies which seems to make green beans/peas a little more appealing to Miss Priss.
Mary Tilman turns 7 months old on Saturday and we have already tried lots of food (tummy willing).
Here is the list:
- Sweet potatoes
- Green Beans
- Butternut Squash
- Yellow Squash - cooked but haven't tried
