I’ve discussed my plans for feeding W a few times and as you may know, I originally planned on making all of my own baby food. Then a friend gave us a bunch of jars of baby food and I got a great deal on some Plum Organics so I haven’t made nearly as much of W’s food as I had originally planned. W is definitely an eater and while I really don’t mind feeding him the organic baby food available for purchase, I do like having the option to prepare my own food as well.
One of my biggest challenges when thinking about making my own food was figuring out exactly how I should prepare the food and what kind of food I should make for W. When I discovered Fresh Baby, I was thrilled! Fresh Baby takes the guesswork out of making your own baby food! Fresh Baby is on a mission to offer simple, all-natural solutions for feeding babies, toddlers, and school-aged kids, and to offer support in raising a child with healthy eating habits.
The Fresh Baby So Easy Baby Food Kit takes all of the guesswork out of making baby food.
The So Easy Baby Food Kit offers an all-in-one solution to making your own baby food at home. You can use the kit to make your child’s food in less than 30 minutes a week! The kit includes everything you need to get started. It comes with a cookbook, freezer trays, a how-to DVD, and a nutrition card.
I resisted the urge to just start using the trays, mostly because I’m not that experienced and wasn’t sure exactly where to begin. This is where the how-to DVD is the perfect starting point. It offers great step-by-step advice from picking out the produce to use and preparing it to serving it to your child! After watching the DVD, I dove into the cookbook. This is the part of the kit I had been anticipating because I wanted ideas for different flavors to make.
The cookbook is organized by age and has over 40 recipes which was fantastic for me! It really helped me think beyond the basics. W is not a picky eater and I want to expose him to as many flavors as I can so it is great to be encouraged by the So Easy Baby Food cookbook. My favorite features of the book include all of the shopping tips and the fact that the book offered variations on different main ingredients. That is the kind of resource that keeps the book from just getting stuck in the back of a cabinet!
The laminated nutrition card that comes with the kit is also a great resource. It can be kept on hand much easier than a cookbook and it provides at-a-glance information on what foods are appropriate at each age and also discusses safety concerns such as choking. I’ve hung it on our refrigerator and it’s been great to have right on hand!
You would think that the trays would be the main feature of the So Easy Baby Food Kit. They are definitely handy and well-made but I am in love with the cookbook. Still, the trays are great for freezing the food in perfect portions while keeping them safe from spillage and freezer burn. This kit really is an all-in-one kit!
I love that the storage trays are also dishwasher safe. This is so important in our busy household. We like to start the dishwasher at night so everything is clean in the morning! It’s great to be able to throw the trays in with everything else!
