Making your baby’s food from scratch is easy and rewarding. Baby gets fresh and delicious food, made with love from market produce and you get the satisfaction of knowing you are giving your baby healthy, nutritious food. It’s so simple to do, whether you use a baby food maker product or a pot on the stove – it can be done! Homemade applesauce was one of my first foods and I still love it ’til this day.
I really enjoy making my baby’s food, and it’s as easy as making her whatever we are eating. You can also make a big batch of baby’s favourite recipes, if you prefer, and freeze them in baby food (or ice cube) trays. Afterwards, you pop the frozen cubes out, transfer to a freezer bag and store for up to 1 month, for ultimate freshness.
I was thrilled to give the Baby Brezza 1- Step Baby Food Maker a spin this past month, as Abigail began solids. I was eager to try Baby Brezza to see if some of my baby recipes worked well in it and I also was curious to see if it sped up the process of preparation at all.
Here’s a quick (and I mean quick) look at just how easy it is.
To steam-cook and blend organic carrots and pears took under 15 minutes! I let it cool for five and then served it to Abigail. Of course, it’s up to her at the end of the day – and she was digging her fresh baby brezza homemade dinner. As you can see, smiles all around! Her favourite recipes have a bit of sweetness to them and include pears, apples, and berries. Sweet potatoes and apples are another home run, and I’d be lying if I didn’t enjoy a few spoonfuls myself. Yum! Below you will find some of our easy baby food recipes to give a try.
I couldn’t believe just how simple to operate the Baby Brezza was from the get go. I love that! I just chop up whatever fruits and veggies (or meat) I want to include, fill the machine with water (if cooking), add the food, and hit the setting that I need. For most foods, at this stage, I use steam and blend. It steam-cooks and blends until smooth, all on it’s own. Sweet!
