Pay attention to these five points when using a baby food machi

  • The baby food maker is a practical all-in-one device, in addition to steaming and boiling puree, it can also defrost and heat. In a large 1000 ml beaker, up to four meals can be cooked at the same time.

    1. Only rely on organic products. Otherwise, glasses that are almost exclusively provided in organic quality are a better choice.

    2. Choose vegetables with low nitrate content. These include, for example, carrots, eggplants, leeks, cucumbers, potatoes, beans, parsnips or black salsify.

    3. Always add some oil or butter to the porridge. A high-quality, refined organic vegetable oil, such as sunflower oil, rapeseed oil or wheat germ oil, is most suitable for this.

    4. It is best not to prepare too much porridge with equipment in advance, because it should be as fresh as possible when eating. As a guideline, babies younger than 6 months should only eat porridge in the refrigerator for a maximum of 24 hours. For older babies, baby food should be consumed within two to three days. Baby food can be safely stored in the refrigerator for two to three months.

    5. Even if your child only eats a small amount of porridge: You can not reheat it, because on the one hand the vitamins contained in it will be lost, on the other hand the bacteria will multiply faster. Our tip: Always heat only a small portion, and if you feel hungry than expected, add more.

    Everyone has probably heard that steaming is healthier than “normal” cooking on the stove. But why is that actually the case? Quite simply: The temperatures when steaming are lower than when cooking on the stove. This means that fewer nutrients and vitamins are destroyed. In addition, vitamins and nutrients are not washed out during steam cooking, but remain in the food. When cooking on the stove, however, the food lies directly in the water. The nutrients are not only flushed out, but are also lost when the water is thrown away.

    Another advantage of steaming is the significantly better taste and prettier appearance of steamed vegetables. And that's really true. Steamed foods contain much more of the original flavor, as they are not overheated and thus destroyed. The food tastes crisp and fresh.
