So it’s that time. Almost. I can’t believe it is here already.

We have a very busy June, so I’ve decided to start making some baby food this next month and getting it into the freezer for when we start Austin on baby food in July. I want to be ahead of myself on this one because making my own baby food is important to me. My time is also important to me, which is why I’m thrilled about the new Munchkin Fresh Baby Food System. It’s an easy system to use for the first few months of feeding a baby…it’s great for making ahead and freezing in the trays and pops. And it’s also great for making food for baby, using the same ingredients that you are using for your family dinner that night. Love this “make ahead-use in the moment” versatility too! (Check out my Vine Video on making cantaloupe freezer pops!)

I feel like I was just making homemade baby food for Tyler, and here we are almost 3 years later getting ready to do the same for Austin! Oh, time…would you slow down a little. Where is the pause button?

So Munchkin’s full Fresh Baby Food System works like this…

Step 1: Chop & Steam – Start with Munchkin’s Fresh Food Chopper & Steamer, which chops and steams food quickly with a stainless steel cutting blade and convertible lid for steaming in the microwave.

Step 2: Mash – Next, use the Fresh Food Grinder to mash food into safe-to-swallow textures.

Step 3: Eat or Store – Lastly, stock your freezer with homemade baby food in stackable Click Lock Fresh Food Freezer Trays or Click Lock Fresh Food Freezer Pops with easy-to-hold handles for little hands.

We’ll also be giving away a copy of Give Peas a Chance, by pediatric dietitian Kate Samela. It’s the foolproof guide to feeding your picky toddler,  and to helping parents introduce their babies to fresh fruits and vegetables. What a fantastic resource for all parents who wish to nourish their children with the best foods…including peas!

My 4 year old loved just about everything as a baby except carrots. He didnt get picky until solids. I dabbled in homemade baby food with him but would love to make more with the one I’m currently due with when she gets to that stage.
