11 Kitchen Gadgets That Every New Parent Needs


Trending Now


Whether you’re still in the rice cereal stage, experimenting with purees or have moved on to finger foods, prepping food for your baby can be time consuming. But if you arm yourself with a few of these life hacking kitchen tools, you’ll have half a chance of getting those meals ready before your hungry little has a total meltdown. And you might even be inspired to cook up some new healthy bites.

Portion Control

When you’re pureeing baby food, making big batches that you can freeze to divvy up over the next week or month is a major time saver. Plus, it’ll help you keep Baby’s diet varied – instead of a week or carrots, followed by a week of peas. This Multiportions silicone ice cube tray of sorts from BEABA let’s you freeze 7, 2-ounce portions in an easy to pop out storage container. Once frozen, you can pop the food pods out and toss them in freezer plastic bags and use the tray again for your next puree.

Available at amazon.com, $19.95.
