We didn’t fancy ourselves the homemade-baby food type until we spied mashed bananas in a jar at the grocery store and thought, “How hard can that be?”
Turns out, making baby food is a breeze — thanks to Baby Brezza, a new munchkin blender that steams and purees everything from pears to potatoes in one fell swoop.
Unlike other baby food blenders, this one doesn’t require that you drain the fruits and veggies from a steamer basket before whipping them into an infant-friendly consistency. Simply chop your produce, add water, and set to the recommended time. The Brezza does the rest.
It also has steam-only and blend-only (hello, breakfast smoothies) functionality, so we think of it more as a useful kitchen appliance than a must-have baby feeding fad.
That’s right — even preschoolers will go gaga for it.
