Using A Baby Food Processor to Make Baby Food

Baby Food Processor Info And Reviews

When I started making my own baby food I ran right out and bought a baby sized food processor. For some of us this is a perfect decision. For others, well, you can easily get away with using an ordinary blender.

Using a regular blender to make baby food works great for moms who like to make great batches of baby food recipes, and then freeze them all in individual portions. This never worked for me really. I have a weird thing about the microwave. I just never liked them. I guess I never trusted them. I am one of those moms who never ever uses the microwave to heat up the baby's bottle. To thaw breast milk or to heat water for a formula bottle.
The distrust I have of the microwave lead me to despise having to remember to thaw the baby's food hour ahead of time. I just don't always have it together enough to remember.

So what did I do? I used a baby food processor and made all of my baby food on the spot. This really isn't as hard as it seems. There is indeed a trick to it and takes planning.

Breakfast is easy. I'd just puree a simple fruit. Strain the fruit if necessary. Mix in a little baby cereal to go with it. Viola!

Lunch wasn't too bad either. For starters I just kept fresh leftovers every night and lunch too. I knew the baby would need lunch at a certain time of day, so I made lunch for both of us! It forced me to eat super healthy too, which is a plus. I would cook baked or broiled or grilled chicken and some steamed veggies. Things like that. Pop em' right into the baby food processor and have instantly fresh homemade baby food.

Another great tip is to make it a ritual to cook little baby meals wrapped in tin foil. You can prepare two or three of these and have them in the fridge ready to pop in the oven at any moments notice. Usually you will only have to cook them for about 30 minutes to an hour.

What you do is cut up some veggies and meats and wrap them in a tinfoil packet. Bake this packet in the oven. The times will vary depending on what you are cooking. Once the food is done cooking just pop it into the baby food processor with a little water or chicken stock and puree. Viola! You've got a great healthy meal for a baby. Now that's and easy way to make baby food.

The Baby Food Processors

So here's a few baby food processors I have found available on the net for a pretty reasonable price. I haven't tried them all, but I did use the baby steps electric food mill and never found a need to try any other since. Even though I am not currently using it to make baby food, I still use it! My daughter is completely on solids and chewing everything herself, so no need to make baby food for a while until my son is born in November.

I want to show you all what is available out there and maybe for those of you who have tried these baby food processors, you can leave your own little review and comments on the products. I'm sure we'd all love to know!

Electric Food Processors

Electric Baby Food Processor by Dex

Electric Baby Food Processor
I love this food processor! It really does a great job of blending the food until super smooth. What I really like is that you can make the food and then take the top off and feed right from the bowl you made it in. Of course, you want to take any out food for later storage before you start feeding. I thought this was a very good buy and would recommend it to anyone.

Baby Steps Complete Natural Feeding System

Baby Steps Complete Natural Feeding System
This is a complete system. If I had known about this back when I was purchasing my baby food processor I would have bought this. It comes with both the electric and hand grinder with case. There is also a guide, a freezer tray for storing extras, and a feeding dish too. This would be a great buy or even a great gift!
