As a mother who has weaned three children, I can’t help but notice how different each experience was. I have learned so much throughout the years about nutrition and weaning. One thing I have enjoyed seeing is new products on the market. Each year that passes brings new brands and products, and it’s so exciting to see have creative us humans can get in terms of finding ways to make life easier. Nuby Canada’s Garden Fresh line is just that.
The Mash N’ Feed is a product that allows you to mash your child’s food and serve it in the same bowl. The set comes with a bowl, lid for easy storage and weaning spoon. Now you can be prepared to mash some berries, avocado or bananas and serve or store them right away! It’s perfect really, because it saves cleaning time on a number of different tools when you have everything in one set. I used a blender to prepare food for our toothless weaning first born, but I realized over the years that hand mashing is far more convenient, and has less mess. Another thing I like about hand mashing is the fact that I have all the control. I get to decide on the consistency I want for my child’s food based on their eating abilities, which is a lot harder to control with a blender.
My Favourite Features:
•The bowl comes with a handle, which is good not just for us parents, but also for our children. Our daughter is a toddler now technically (always a baby to me!), and she loves self feeding. The handle allows little hands to grip the bowl themselves once they’ve reached that level of independence.
•Dishwasher safe & BPA free
•Perfect for if you’re travelling. This set doesn’t take up much space, and it’s a lot easier to carry than a machine.
Over the last few years, I have grown to favour hand mashed food for babies over food from a blender. Children are able to practice self feeding with food of a thicker consistency, and the offering of blended food encourages parents to being weaning before their child is developmentally ready. Below are some of my favourite hand mashed food for babies.
