Making baby food is simple – if you have the right tools – and doesn’t require as much time as you may think. I spend 30 minutes to 1 hour once a week preparing baby food and I have a well-stocked freezer for my ravenous little 11-month old. I’ve been making his food since he was 5 months old.


These items will make preparing your baby’s food fun and your clean-up quick and easy:

1. Steamer insert and pan with a lid.

Simply Calphalon Multi-Pot – this one is my favorite. It’s got a large capacity and is so easy to clean – nothing seems to stick to it. You can put it in the dishwasher, but I prefer to hand-wash my pots and pans. I’ve had this set for about 3 months now and love it.

My Simply Calphalon steamer set that I Simply love.

Calphalon Universal Steamer Insert – this insert comes with a lid and if you already have Calphalon pots, it should fit. I like it, but I only use this one now when I have a small amount of food I’m making or if I’m cooking multiple batches. It does work well, however, it’s not easy to clean in my opinion and has a much smaller capacity than the multi-pot steamer above.

2. High-powered blender.

I purchased a VitaMix blender at Costco last fall before undergoing jaw surgery. I have no plans to go back to a regular blender, but if you have one that can get the food smooth, there is no need for you to buy something else. Baby J is at an age where he can have more texture. But for first foods, it’s important that they are very smooth, with no chunks lurking.

Note: a food processor is a good alternative if you already have one.

3. Wilton Silicone Brownie Mold Pan.

I’ve tried many other options and this one is simply the best. I just ordered another one while writing this blog post, so now I’ll have three.

Blueberry puree before freezing in my Wilton silicone brownie mold pan

4. Plastic wrap

5. Gallon-size freezer bags

6. Sharpie marker or label-maker.

I used to think that my friends who owned label-makers were a bit eccentric…until my friend gave one to me as a gift. I seriously don’t know what I did before having one…oh, wait…yes, I do – I spent hours looking for things!


Step One

Wash and chop fresh food for baby or use frozen bagged food.

Most foods for your little one need to be steamed before being eaten, including fruits. Two that do not are bananas and avocado, which simply can be mashed with a fork and served immediately.

Frozen food has several benefits:

1) It’s super-fresh when it’s frozen

2) You can keep it on hand longer than fresh food

3) You can give your baby his/her favorites even when they are not in season.

It’s your choice if you want to use organic or not. For me, it simply depends on the type of food and where it was grown. If it’s in a tough outer skin like mango or banana or avocado, I’m not as concerned about it being organic. Continue reading →

17:28 / 26 October 2019 Complaints/Issues/Reviews

Costco retailer is recalling baby food, a lactose-sensitive formula sold under its own brand, Kirkland Signature, from the shelves. It is reported by the CBC.

baby food shortage in the US

In stores, no more than three cans of milk mixtures are given out on hand. nine0232

Several large US retailers have announced a shortage of infant formula in their assortment. The announcement came amid the continuing shortage of baby food in the United States.

Due to increased demand and various problems with suppliers of formula for infants and infants, difficulties have arisen across the country, a representative of one of the major chains confirmed to The Hill. Now in one hand they give out no more than 3 cans of infant formula. nine0003

“Like other retailers, we have implemented purchase limits of three per transaction on all infant formula to help improve inventory. We continue to work diligently with our supply partners to best meet customer needs,” the statement said. Walgreens

CVS also announced that it would limit sales of infant formula to three units per purchase, both in stores and online.

“We continue to work with our infant formula suppliers to address this issue and we regret any inconvenience this causes to our customers,” the company said in a statement. nine0003

A similar situation is observed in other major US manufacturers - Target and Costco. On the website of the latter, you can still order 5 units of infant formula per person, but this is unlikely to last long, the company warned.

The shortage arose following the FDA's recall of Abbott Nutrition baby foods earlier this year. The cause was the death of a child after consuming one of the company's products.

Walmart experts said the recall exacerbated shortages of infant formula. Supply chains have been disrupted. Inflation, which is now affecting many US consumer industries, has also contributed.

Even the White House had to make a statement on this subject. "Ensuring the availability of these products is also a priority for the FDA, and they are working around the clock to address any potential shortages," spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

“This includes working with the big manufacturers of infant formula to ensure they increase production because part of the challenge, of course, is making sure there is stock on the shelves,” Psaki said. nine0003

However, despite Psaki's vague promises to work on solving the problem, there are no more baby food on the shelves yet. And manufacturers do not report specific deadlines for the end of the shortage.
