Pre-packaged baby food is expensive, even though the prices don’t look that high: you’re paying $2 or $3 for a measly one or two ounces of food! Making baby food yourself is a much cheaper, healthier option, since it contains no preservatives and you can buy fresh fruits and veggies on sale and make up big batches for your freezer.
If you don’t have a food processor (or don’t want to use your precious Cuisinart to puree Junior’s squash and apples), and aren’t into steaming foods on the stovetop, try a baby food maker like the Beaba Babycook.
This innovative little gadget serves as a blender, steamer, defroster and reheater, all in one compact appliance. Just dump food in, press the button, and you’ll have fresh baby food, pureed how you want it, in 15 minutes.
Our one tip: Don’t bother with the honeycomb-shaped Beaba storage trays you can buy separately. Get a few cheap ice cube trays, fill them with purees, freeze, then pop the cubes into labeled freezer storage bag.
