How to Cook Small Dishes for Your Baby

How to Cook Dishes for Baby

How to enjoy our little baby between his 4th and 6th months? Who will begin to diversify its feeding? As a mother of three, I had great pleasure in preparing wholesome, mashed or stewed food for my little hearts! Of course, sometimes there is no time for some of us, but with the new ”all in one” cooking appliances and some tricks, we can wake up the taste senses of our children and have a great time cooking.

No more hours in the kitchen… Today’s Baby Food Maker allow us to make balanced meals in less than 15 minutes. Thanks to their multifunctional abilities, these robots can defrost, steam, mix and warm dishes. That is what put the cooks in the kitchen Sunday.

Choose the right cooking device

In addition to saving time, these machines make it easy. Tip: choose a graduated food bowl to prepare exact quantities of food
In addition, most devices stop cooking by themselves; this is time saved to play with our child!

A matter of taste

The awakening of the child’s taste is progressive, so we should not cook the dishes according to our own adult preferences. In general, babies eat a little less salt than adults. If you find that the baby food is faded, it will however certainly delight him… Especially if it’s you who have done it!

Here are some recipe ideas to enjoy:
