One of my favorite gifts to give at a baby shower is a baby food mill. There is nothing more important than feeding your child the same nourishing foods that you eat to start developing healthy palates.
When my babies turned one and were really ready to start with solids I used a baby food mill to puree small portions of the foods my family was eating. From the get go, whatever my family ate, my baby did as well. This has really helped in getting them accustomed to eating the same foods my family does.
A baby food mill is so easy to use and a cinch to clean up. I used a mini food processor as well, but the clean up alone often had me reaching for my food mill. What I love about this version is that it comes with a carrying case. It makes it so easy to throw it in the diaper bag and have it with you wherever you go. Whether your at a restaurant or visiting family, it’s convenient to pull out, puree a small portion and feed your baby.
Having a food mill saves you money from having to buy jars of food and really… have you tasted those baby foods in a jar?!! Trust me, your baby can tell the difference from homemade food and processed baby food in a jar as well. I’d rather get my baby accustomed to real food versus processed.
Here’s your chance to win your own baby food mill.
