Easy, Healthy Cooking with Beaba

As a parent, ensuring our little ones have a healthy diet packed with nutrition is always a priority. And now more than ever, keeping our kids’ health and immunity in check is imperative.

No brand understands this better than French pioneer, Beaba. It’s iconic Babycook is the modern solution to home made cooking and owes it’s cult status to the 4-in-1 design that steams, blends, reheats and defrosts baby food. These 4 settings eliminate the need for pots, pans, blenders or microwaves, making baby food as simple as possible!

The soft steam option not only allows you to preserve the nutritional quality of ingredients, but also collect the right amount of cooking juice to create the perfect blend for your little one! As your baby grows older, the requirement will change from fine purée to chunkier textures. The Babycook supports parents in adapting to the different stages of food through the ‘pulse/blend’ feature. This ensures your baby is getting the correct consistency of baby food at every age. 

Between Zoom meetings, household chores and baby crying, we need something to do the job quickly. One feature that is really impressive is the steam cooking system being able to turn off automatically! This way, you never have to be worrying about overcooking your baby’s food and you’re not constantly standing around the kitchen watching over the Babycook. You can easily do a few tasks around the house or get back on your work call, worry-free, as your baby’s food is being prepared to utmost perfection. 

So how does it work? It’s pretty straightforward. 

Cut up your choice of fruits and vegetables into cubes and toss them into the bowl. Follow the instruction booklet and fill the correct amount of water in the tank, and press that cooking button. Then all you have to do is sit back and relax as it automatically turns off, so your fruit and veg would never be overcooked. Once it’s done, just pour, serve and bon appetit!
