What are blenders?
Blenders are also known as liquidisers and are designed to puree food. Often used for soups, but today they are a great-way to create meals for your weaning baby. Whichever stage of weaning your baby is at, you can blend the food to the ideal consistency.
How much do blenders cost?
Although you can use any blender of any manufacturer, makers of baby equipment often make weaning specific models now. They vary in cost from as little as £20 to more sophisticated models at over £100.
Blenders designed for the weaning stage often have a variety of functions to help you create delicious meals easily for your baby.
The main functions are the blending option, a steamer, and often a warmer and defrost option.
When choosing a blender for weaning, these four options help you create, cook, and prepare any food for your little one. It is worth looking for one that has a large container which means you can prepare a decent amount in one go and gives you the chance to freeze portions for later on.
