Making Your Own Baby Food Is Easier (and Cheaper!) Than You Think...

You can’t help but think of food—and more food—with Thanksgiving just a week away.  But what about baby’s food?  If your child is weaning off breast milk or baby formula and moving into solids, have you thought about making your own baby food?

OK, I know the thought of making your own baby food sounds complicated…and perhaps even expensive, but it’s not, especially if you have a Beaba Babycook BPA-free Baby Food Maker.  The $135 investment may be a blow to your budget initially, but considering how much money you would otherwise spend on jars of baby food, in the long run you definitely get your money’s worth and then some.  Plus, it’s healthier since you control all the ingredients that actually go into the food.

The Beaba is simple to use.  Just chop up some fresh (or frozen) fruits and vegetables, add some water, then let it steam for about 15 minutes.  Then puree the mixture until you get it to the consistency you want.  Add some meat, rice or anything else as baby gets older, and then you can blend up what the rest of the family is having for dinner.

I’ve had my Beaba for over two years and am still using it at least three times a week…and it still works (and looks) like new.

Price: $135 with free shipping (originally $150)
