Baby Bullet, Healthy Babies!!!
This Year I went out and bought myself a Christmas Gift…a new Baby Bullet! Woohoo!!! Good times! You can tell how much your priorities have shifted when you get so excited about a Baby Bullet!
This is my second Baby Bullet, the first one I bought when Kailee (who is 5) was born and it lasted a while, with fairly regular use. While my middle child is now 3, the large batch mixer is the perfect size for Green Smoothies (so yummy) so YES I did use it almost everyday. Ultimately, I believe, the motor went out, user error I’m sure! J
I can already see the eyes a’ rolling… “You’re one of THOSE moms…well I just don’t have time for all that”! Calm down, and stop being so judgmental. I’m not here saying, you MUST do this…I’m here saying, “Hey it’s really not that difficult and the benefits are worth it, to me!”
I mean after all, would you eat fast food everyday? I hope for most of us the answer is NO. However, if the answer for you is yes, don’t get frustrated. Start with small changes and keep going! And remember, you are in the right place! #HealthyLifestyle
Well, let’s think about packaged baby food as fast food and/or processed food – with extra additives, salt, sugar, etc; then why wouldn’t we make it and save the packaged (convenience) baby food for the emergencies.
Making baby food is not only super simple, it’s a real cost saver. I normally make Kash’s food right before he eats based on what we have in the house and/or what we are eating for dinner. I will make batches and freeze some a few days a week as well – for the above mentioned emergencies. The best part, you never have to worry about running out of baby food. The Baby Bullet is so small and easily packed I take ours with us on vacations. I also have the steamer, and its small enough to steam the baby food but not large enough to be a hassle when cleaning. You can store the extra food in the containers that are perfect serving size containers and great to take on the go! I know, I know…I sound like an infomercial! Honestly, I don’t know that I would’ve last making baby food for three kids without a Baby Bullet!
To give you an idea how easy it is to make food:
- Slice and Peel
- Set in Steamer (takes about 10 mins)
- Add to Baby Bullet
- Add Breast Milk
- Blend for 10-20 secs
- Serve or Store
(To warm up the baby food you can place the storage container in warm water)
Once your baby is able to eat mixtures it is so great to have. I make brown rice, with chicken and veggies for the little ones in my bullet!
I know some of you are thinking, “why wouldn’t I just use a blender”…well it seems logical but I’m sure those that choose the blender route instead of the bullet route don’t last near as long. Why? Because of the awesome design of the baby bullet, the perfect size of the mixing containers and the serving size storage containers all make it so easy. I made the same mistake too. When my bullet finally went out, I tried the blender route. I lasted one day before I went out and bought a new Baby Bullet. So for those of you thinking it’s the same thing as using a blender, IT’S NOT!!! J Take my advice; buy the Baby Bullet from the beginning. Let’s start our babies off on the best possible path to a healthy lifestyle!
If you have any yummy baby food recipes please share, I’m always on the lookout for more ideas!
