Ever since baby Josiah is born, I’ve always been researching on all the different baby products (e.g. his milk bottles, cot, playmat etc). It is tiring and could be frustrating at times as there are many opinions and options. How many mummies out there feel me?
One of my biggest challenge was when Josiah starts his solids. How can I whip up a good meal that can be simple to prepare and full of nutrients? After many rounds of researching at multiple baby fairs, I’m happy with my new purchase – the Tommee Tippee Quick Cook Baby Food Maker. It is one of the best baby food maker, steamer or blender!
What I love about it is that you can steam and blend without even transferring anything. So I set a timer and start the steam and blend, while preparing ourselves to head out. Once it’s done, I just transfer it into a thermal flask and we are ready to go!
Even for older babies, this food maker caters to your child’s weaning adventure. If you want chunkier items, you can steam in the basket and transfer to the jug to blend!
Sharing with you a simple recipe that I use to fill Josiah’s tummy:
Pumpkin Chicken Pie
