Easy Homemade Baby Food

I always knew that having a baby would be expensive; I never knew JUST how much money my little bundle of joy would cost. Although having children is rather costly, my son is worth every penny; I’m one lucky momma! However, with hospital bills, diapers, clothes, toys, blankets, baby food, etc, I try and save money where I can. As a new mother, I explored many money-saving avenues. At first, I shied away from homemade baby food because I thought it would take too much time and cause added stress. However, Munchkin Fresh Baby Food System makes homemade baby food affordable, easy, and stress-free. I now make homemade baby food in three easy steps.

The BPA FREE Fresh Food Chopper and Steamer is an innovative 2-in-1 tool used to slice and steam food. Using one quick hand motion, the Fresh Food Chopper’s stainless steel blade dices food and drops it directly into the steaming basket. Once food is in the 3 cup steaming container, the sliding lid transforms from a chopper to a vented steamer. After placing 2 tablespoons of water in the steaming basket, you are ready to steam your food. Using the recommended cooking time (included with the Munchkin Fresh Food Chopper and Steamer) you microwave your food for the appropriate amount of time. Once the food has softened, you are ready to transfer the food to Munchkin’s Fresh Food Grinder.


The Fresh Food Grinder helps prepare homemade baby food in minutes. Whether you are at home or on-the-go, this transportable food grinder will provide your baby with healthy and fresh food. After filling the interior chamber with your steamed food, you will want to move the grinder to a flat surface. Holding the Fresh Food Grinder in one hand, you will use your other hand to press downward while rotating the handle. Once all food has been ground (and after removing the blade) your baby can be directly fed from the bowl. Munchkin has all your baby food needs in mind; they also offer a variety of food storage options.


Munchkin’s Fresh Baby Food System is AMAZING. I found the Fresh Food Chopper/Steamer and Food Grinder extremely user friendly. When I started my homemade baby food journey, I looked at the clock to see how long it would take an amateur, like me, to make make baby food. Fifteen minutes later, my son was eating fresh carrots! The $0.68 bag of carrots I purchased from the store fed my son countless meals thanks to the Fresh Baby Food System. Not only is the Fresh Baby Food System easy, quick, and budget friendly, but it provides my son with fresh food. I took a look at some baby food I had in my cupboard and was amazed to find preservatives mixed among other ingredients. Homemade baby food provides my baby with the healthiest meals.

Munchkin’s Fresh Food Freezer Pops makes storing excess food easy. After making fruity baby food, I like to freeze small portions for later. Because my seven month old baby is teething, he LOVES sucking on these pops. What a fun way to provide my teething baby with a healthy snack.

After I make my son’s healthy homemade baby food, the clean-up is SUPER easy. The cleaning tool included in the Fresh Food Chopper and Steamer helps rid the chopper from food that becomes trapped. These dishwasher safe parts makes clean-up hassle free.

Munchkin Fresh Baby Food System makes homemade baby food quick, affordable, easy, fun, and healthy. I can’t think of a better way for my baby to eat healthier while saving money.

About Meagan

My name is Meagan and I adore being a mother to a Ninja Turtle obsessed 4-year-old and a very sweet (but mostly sassy) one-year-old. Before working from home, I enjoyed my time as a Behavioral Health Nurse. When I get a moment to myself, nothing makes me happier than eating cookie dough ice-cream, going shopping (kidless), catching up on my favorite Netflix shows, or soaking in a nice warm bubble bath. My family and I recently relocated to Idaho where we love living the simple life.
