Making Homemade Baby Food with the Freshfoods™ Cook-n-Blend Baby Food Maker

This is a sponsored post.

When Austin was an infant and I was working full-time I did tend to purchase the simple baby foods for him.  Though I always purchased the organic varieties, I wanted to do it all myself.  Crazy that sometimes we have to be willing to accept we have limitations, right!   As he was a little older I tended to feed him most of the foods we would eat.  With Addie we practiced more of the baby lead weaning and then made most all of her food ourselves as I was home much more.

With our 3.0 I hope by that point to be home exclusively (or be working from home at least) so I can make all her foods.  When the Moms Meet group reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try out the Freshfoods™ Cook-n-Blend Baby Food Maker I was beyond excited to say, “Absolutely!”

Unlike many other baby food makers, this isn’t just a high-powered blender or food processor but it actually cooks/steams the fruits and veggies right inside.  Can you make it any easier than that?  Simply follow the directions to put the proper attachments in, peel and  cube your produce (this applesauce was actually for us big kids to try out so we left the skins on like I normally would!)  Then follow the instructions to add your water and begin!  It was beyond simple.

Once the food is steamed then you just follow the instructions to puree.  Although it would be nice to just press the button and it do it all, you do need to hold the button down while it is doing the actual puree process but I don’t mind because it allows me to control the consistency.  In the beginning this will allow you to create very smooth mixtures and as the little ones grow, so can the texture and consistency.   And best of all, it is all completed in one container, so you are not left with lots of dishes afterwards.   It even includes dual steam baskets if you are making separate items so they can cook at one time.

  1. I had not seen this before so glad to read your review. I like the size of it and that you can make healthy baby food for your little ones using it sounds amazing.

  2. I loved making my daughter’s baby food. It was quite the awesome thing. I still make her re-usable pouches. She loves them! I like that I know EXACTLY what is going into what I’m making her. I hate the overprocessed icky tasting stuff in the stores anyhow!

  3. I just LOVE this. If we have another baby, it’s going on my registry for sure {for us to by ourselves, of course}. I made all of my second daughter’s baby food and it would have been so nice to cook and puree in the same product!

  4. Now that I am eating so much greener and healthier myself, I can’t imagine that I would do any less for any child that would come into my life at this stage. The fact that this apparatus actually cooks and steams the food, keeping all the nutrients and vitamins right there in the container so that baby gets everything, is awesome. This would be a great baby shower gift for a new mom!
