Spring Fling Giveaway: KidCo BabySteps Deluxe Food Mill with Travel Tote

by - April 22, 2011

Now that your garden is on its way to being planted and giving you juicy homegrown food, consider how wonderful it will be to feed the little ones in your life food from your own garden!

I'm really excited to share my experience with today's Spring Fling Giveaway product, the BabySteps KidCo Deluxe Food Mill with Travel Tote. I used to make baby food for the Man-child when he was little, but my previous process always involved tearing up the kitchen and making a huge sticky mess. I was interested in finding a way to make a single, fresh meal at a time with simple cleanup.

Assistant Reviewer

I chopped up a pear and banana and tested the banana first, thinking "what can't be used to smoosh a banana?" It came out nice and smooth. I then wanted to add some pear chunks, and this is where I must insert a confession: I lost the user's manual. No problem, Man-child came to my rescue showing me how the medical grade stainless steel strainer and cutting blade set could simply be removed to add more to the canister. The mill handled the pear like a champ as well. It really was simple to use, and with a little help from me, the Man-child was able to crank it on his own.

I can do it!

We used this in our own kitchen, but it could easily be taken out for a picnic since the snap on lid keeps all leftovers sealed in the cup. The seeds and rinds stay within the canister for cleaning later. The Baby was thorougly please with his breakfast. I think the BabySteps Deluxe Food Mill will come in handy in adding fruit to plain yogurt and oatmeal. The best part is that no batteries or electricity are required! We love saving the earth one less battery at a time.

  1. I would use the food mill for a new grandbaby when he is visiting. I need to tell my daughter about this food mill. What a great idea!

  2. My best friend from college (and mother of my god-daughter) is expecting her 2nd (my god-son), and I would give it to her so she could mash up some delicious fruits (and veggies I presume) to feed the little guy just as soon as he can have solid foods.

  3. Oh wow! Wish I'd known about these a year ago. Oh well...I suppose I'd give it to my sister who's having her first this September :)


  4. I've been looking into getting this for Jacob. I think I would use it most at restaurants so Jacob could eat what we are eating while we're out.


  5. I would be using this for my daughter, who I am currently making baby food for but we haven't been able to figure out the best way to provide her with fresh food while we are out and about, this would be so perfect for our day trips and also visiting family!

  7. I would definitely use this for the newest addition to our home! We try and spend most weekends at my or my husband's parents so the kids can spend lots of quality time with their grandparents. This would be perfect to be able to take with us so my son can enjoy fresh healthy foods while we are out!

  11. The food that is ground isn't super smooth. It's more like the No.2 and 3 baby jar food. For dinner, we might have chicken, brown rice, and veggies. I just take a little of each, and I have the baby's dinner ready in minutes, without having to get up!
