My husband recently bought us the Beaba Babycook and I am so excited to start using it! The Babycook is a steamer and a blender. It cooks food in 15 minutes or less and collects the water from the steaming process, which you can add back into the blended mixture, so that none of the vitamins and valuable nutrients are lost. Its compact design and the small portions of baby food that it cooks are perfect for condo living or for moms who want to make small portions freshly for their babies.
If you want to make giant batches of food at one time, this product probably isn’t right for you. However given that doctors recommend that baby food be consumed the same day that it is made, I think the Babycook will work just perfectly for our family. If you’re not familiar with the Beaba brand, it was developed in 1989 in France with the goal of creating smart, innovative and functional kid products. I came across the brand in December when my sister-in-law, who then was living in France, sent us a baby goody bag full of fun European baby finds that we could not get our hands on here in Canada. In the bag were also 3 soothers, which my son now adores! Unfortunately the soothers are not available in Canada or the U.S., but if you have a friend or relative living overseas, I would encourage you to beg for them….but I digress. Back to the Babycook! Although my son is only 3 months old, I have spoken with many moms who use this product and they all love it as well. I cannot wait to start blending up healthy, organic meals for my little man in the hopefully not-so-near future.
