So Easy Baby Food Kit Review & Giveaway...

As I have mentioned before, I, for the most part, try and make all of Baby R's baby food.  For our family it has been a cost effective choice (we also did this when the twins were babies) as well as one we thought was the most nutritious.  This time around I have been armed with something I did not have with A&W....the So Easy Baby Food Kit by Fresh Baby.  This gem has has now added "easy" to why I prefer to make my own baby food.

The So Easy Baby Food Kit has truly made the whole baby food making adventure easier.  Included in this handy kit are...

-Cookbook
-2 Freezer Trays
-How to DVD
-Nutrition Tip Card

I wish I'd had this kit when the boys were babies too.  I am a particular fan of the cookbook.  I have other resources I have used but this book really does a fantastic job of breaking it all down.  There are sections on tools of the trade and how to introduce solid foods as well as a wealth of nutritional information.  There is even a really cute section to record all your baby's first meals!  My favorite part though, is how the break down every single food.  For instance, for Peaches, it tells you exactly how to prepare it, when to introduce it, as well as variations (spices to add) and foods to combine it with.  I just love this part and feel it helps to expand your baby's palate even from a very young age. 

The freezer trays are a breeze to use.  They are very similar to ice cube trays but contain a cover to protect the food.  The how to DVD is helpful as well and a great starting point to making your own baby food.  The nutrition tip card is laminated (brilliant!) and can be kept out so you can access it readily for quick nutritional information, tips and more.

Making your own baby food does take commitment but using a system like the So Easy Baby Food Kit makes it so much easier to do.  I highly recommend this kit to anyone with a baby on the way and I think this would make an excellent shower gift.  Making your own baby food will save you money, give your child the very healthiest of foods and, quite frankly, it is fun to do!  Click here to buy your very own So Easy Baby Food Kit.

I learned that a child's eating habits are defined by age 3. That makes me both happy and worried about my toddler! (She eats everything, which is great... but then... she eats EVERYTHING!) Anyway, I have a baby that is just starting solids and I have no idea what I'm doing because my toddler never ate baby food. I would love to win this kit!

I learned that both breast milk and formula are sweet. It is the first taste we develop and as a result we're already "off balance" when we begin eating foods. It is believed the earlier you introduce your child to other tastes, the better chance you have of keeping a "sweet tooth" from overpowering the taste buds.

I learned that "Both Cheryl and Joan started out by making food for their own children and found that it was actually easy with a few simple tools. And interestingly, once they got started making baby food, it was really quite convenient. All total, it took about 30 minutes a week."
