Now this looks like an interesting idea! The Squirt baby food dispenser actually does what the name suggests, squirts baby food onto a spoon. Apparently, you fill the handle with food and give it a squeeze, the food is then pushed through a slot between the spoon and the handle, ready for baby to eat. Now we have to admit we haven’t tried this product ourselves but we are intrigued by the concept. Our concern is the functionality of the product. Considering the design, we assume it’s best for thoroughly pureed food rather than the chunkier homemade kind. We’re also wondering how easy it is to clean. If it works as well as they say it could be worth considering. Although we have to admit, we’ll probably just stick with the old fashioned spoon method. If anyone has used the Squirt Baby Food Dispensing Spoon we sure would like to hear what you think of it.
Making your own baby food from scratch just got a heck of a lot easier thanks to the Beaba Babycook from Williams-Sonoma. This little miracle worker has been available in Europe for some time but has only recently made its way to America. The Babycook is a compact counter top appliance that steams, blends, warms and even defrosts meals for baby. The Babycook firsts steams the vegetables, fruits, meats or fish you place into the basket. After 15 minutes it then blends the food to the consistency you desire. You can also reheat or defrost foods using the cooker. It’s dishwasher safe so clean up is a breeze. Making your own baby food helps retain all those healthy vitamins and minerals so often lost in packaged food. And since you prepare the food yourself you know exactly what baby is eating.
