– Tips & advice!

So your baby is now transitioning from liquid to solid foods. Most mothers will now be wondering – do I really need to make my own baby food? Do I need a food processor or a special tool like a baby food maker? 

Well, the answer is basically up to you as a parent and would depend on your budget and priorities. There are many things to consider in solid feeding and baby food preparation. But the dilemma of choosing between buying an all-in-one food steamer and blender or just making use of your old food processor or old fashioned hand cranked food mill is all too real. Worry no more as we give you reasons why you should ditch that food processor and settle for the all-in-one baby food maker instead.
Time

All mothers value time. With hundreds of tasks to do at home and at work, the least a mum deserves is more time spent on preparing baby food and cleaning all the tools used in cooking. Having an all-in-one baby food maker or at least a steamer and blender in one baby food preparation unit would help cut baby food making and focus efforts on rearing the children. Rachel, a mother of two, says that as a working mum, she hardly has time to prepare baby food and having an all-in-one baby food maker saves time in preparing baby food than a regular kitchen food processor. She says this is because mums need not have to separately steam and cook in another container as the all-in-one baby food maker has got your baby food preparation  covered from chopping, steaming, blending and sterilizing food jars and baby bottles. Imagine the time saved in the actual cleaning of all kitchen tools and preparation of baby food.

Health

When it comes to food health and safety, nothing beats the tender loving care of mothers in food preparation. This is the reason why making your own baby food is healthier compared to just buying commercial baby food with unknown ingredients in the supermarket.  Good nutrition is important for a growing baby. As a responsible parent, providing baby food that is filled with nutrients and vitamins is a must if you want them to be healthy. A baby food maker is best suited to working with a wide variety of solid foods. When babies start transitioning from milk to solid food,  the baby food maker can steam, chop, blend and puree baby food with ease without risk of contaminating the food because it is already a steamer and blender in one. As it also doesn’t need transferring the fruit or vegetable from one machine to another not only does it lessen exposure to contaminants but it also retains the nutrients on most fruits and vegetables. And after whipping up  your healthy baby food puree and sauces, instantly place them in Cherub Baby’s Reusable Food Pouches that can be easily stored in the freezer and reheated in the microwave to ensure freshness of your baby food.
