If I could do one thing differently while Wyatt was a baby, I would have made all of his baby food. I had the baby bullet and I had used it a few times – but the food that it made (for me) was too choppy. There were always big chunks and I couldn’t get the consistency just right. I gave up, and bought the canned food. But, little did I know – I just didn’t have the right baby food maker

Insert the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker. This thing is absolutely fantastic and it makes my job of making Levi’s food SO much easier, seriously. You just wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make baby food in this thing. It’s got a steamer so you can literally throw raw veggies in here and steam them until they are soft, then puree them. All in one machine! Before I was boiling carrots, etc. and then adding it into a blender. Boiling takes some of the much-needed nutrition out of foods so I was thrilled to see that the folks at Cuisinart came up with a genius solution! PLUS you can warm bottles in this thing! Yup. It does it all. I spend about an hour on Sundays preparing Levi’s food for THE WHOLE WEEK! Just one hour! And it’s so much fun to mix and match ingredients to create new things for him to eat – this machine has definitely changed the way I see baby food! It’s so much fun!

Let me show you how EASY it is to make Levi’s favorite, Banana Puree:

See, I told you – EASY! I absolutely love this machine! 4 Bananas makes 2 ice-cube trays and that’s enough for a whole week! We love to add the banana cubes into oatmeal or mix them up with other veggies. When the cubes are frozen in the trays I label a freezer ziploc bag, date it, and pour in the banana cubes for easy storage.

Levi’s favorite mix right is 1 cube of banana & 1 cube of carrots! Soon he will be old enough that we can introduce different meats into his diet – and that is when the gourmet purees will develop 🙂 I can’t wait!
