This depends on the food and how many ingredients you’re including, but on average we hear from moms that it takes 30-45 minutes to make a few weeks worth of baby food, from start to finish. If you make smaller batches, it’ll take less time. Moms also tell us the time spent is worth it, providing a sense of craft and creativity, as well as shared time with little ones in the kitchen and of course superior nutritional benefits.
In general, moms who make their own baby food usually have devices to cook, blend and mash food to the correct consistency for their baby, like a puree for beginners or a mash as they grow. If not, our line includes all of the tools you’ll need, and all are designed for easy use as well as easy clean up. You may already have a few tools in the kitchen that will do the job!
Our Fresh Squeezed System offers the latest in convenient storing technology, but people also use a combination of ice cube trays and plastic zip bags. Food is made in batches and then typically frozen. Food can be frozen for up to two months and food placed directly in the refrigerator can be served for up to 48 hours according to U.S. Food Safety Guidelines.
Our unique system is the first product to let you press, store and serve homemade baby food from a convenient pouch. We offer both single-use and reusable pouches with our system. Our single-use pouches store very easily in the freezer – making the best use of your space. You can also take them directly from the freezer, ready to go and serve directly from pouch. You can also pair with our Couple of Spoons, which attaches to the end of the pouch and squeezes the puree right onto the spoon for easy feeding.
Simply place your squeeze pouch into a bowl of warm water for a few minutes to reheat. This will help it gently thaw and warm the food. Remember to always test the temperature before feeding heated food to your little one.
Yes, there’s a spot right on the back of the pouch for notes, where you can write the date, time and specific ingredients. This is also the best way to keep track of your food’s time in the fridge or freezer.
Yes and they are also phthalate and PVC free.
Nope, our pouches are designed to store blended, well-mashed or pureed food. You can also use them to store snack foods like yogurt, applesauce and fruit purees/smoothies.
Yes this will happen. The best thing to do is press your food, detach the tube from the bag with the press still down, cap bag and then pull the press out of the now detached tube.
The first thing to do is make sure you have unscrewed the spout slightly before pressing. This will allow the air to escape when filling. If this does not work please see “What do I do if food gets stuck in the press?”
Sometimes even the best mixer leaves a chunk behind. You’ll know this is the case if you are pressing and feel significant resistance. If you feel resistance, stop and unscrew the tube and pour puree back in the bowl. You will then either find the chunk lodged in the base of the tube or in the bowl. If in the bowl, remove it. If in the tube, use the force of the water from your sink to push it out.
The first thing to do is make sure you have unscrewed the spout slightly before pressing. It could be that you are pushing the press down too quickly or the consistency of the food in the tube is too chunky.
Our pouches travel very nicely and it is a great design benefit. Please note that our pouches do not meet the minimum ounce requirement so you will have to proactively tell TSA you are carrying your baby’s homemade food. You may be asked to go through an additional screening once through security.

There are lots of great reasons! First, when you make your own baby food you get to decide what ingredients go into it, which means you know exactly what your little one is eating. You choose the mix of ingredients and flavors that are right for your child, depending on their personal tastes and diet. This helps you eliminate preservatives and added sugars, and lets you go totally organic if desired. Homemade baby food also helps food retain its natural textures, colors and nutrients. By getting creative, you can also expose them to a range of foods and flavors that are not available in pre-packaged food options, expanding their palette and helping them discover new tastes. And last but not least, buying and making your own food can save you money.
What to feed your baby depends on a lot of things like age (actual and developmental), family diet (like, if you’re vegetarian), their personal taste and what’s fresh or in season. Of course, we always recommend that you check with your pediatrician and review food safety from the FDA website: http://www.foodsafety.gov/blog/homemade_babyfood.html
