Introducing food has gone really well for us. Once Logan learned to sit in his high chair, open his mouth and eat the food, we were smooth sailing. His teachers have really helped with him getting the hang of it. For now, I am sending jarred food to school and using homemade at home on the weekends.
As a shower gift, I received the Beaba Babycook, Beaba cookbook, Beaba freezer storage pods and Beaba spoons. It sat in a closet until Logan was around 5 months old. I wanted to learn to make his food, but after learning about the Beaba now, it’s probably not a necessity.
Here’s how it works–it is a steamer AND food processor. So far, I have used it for sweet potato, avocado, banana and zucchini. You just steam your ingredient for about 15 minutes in the steamer tray (I skipped this part for avocado and banana), dump it in the processor bowl with some leftover water (or fresh for the banana and avocado), and blend. I store it in ice cube trays in addition to the pods.
While it is an all-in-one piece, using the microwave or stove and then a food processor does the same thing.
The Beaba cookbook is more for some combos of foods, but we aren’t there yet. I am just cycling through fruits and vegetables to see what Logan likes.
Other foods on my list to try are broccoli, carrots, squash, and then maybe some combos like apple-banana.
What other foods should we try?
