Here we are, looking at the arrival of another New Year and wondering how it is that we got here so quickly and what we can do to make 2012 even better than the last. New Year, New You, right?
However, New Year's resolutions aren't just for adults anymore and I've been hearing more and more about including children in on the annual ritual as well. With a little guidance, the new year can provide an opportunity for preschool- and school-age kids to assess aspects of their home and school life, as well as things like relationships with family and friends.
More of a time to set goals rather than the improvements that we as adults focus on, these achievements are things that kids can commit to accomplishing during the coming 12 months. From cleaning up toys to brushing teeth to always wearing a bicycle helmet to branching out and meeting new friends, the list can easily be tailored to meet the age, personality and lifestyle of individual kids.
When it comes to babies and toddlers, of course they aren't going to be able to make their own resolutions. However, parents are able to make a few on their behalf... one being the addition of more homemade baby food. But no one wants to spend more time peeling, chopping, dicing, blending and more in the kitchen, do they?
Instead, that's exactly what The Original Baby Bullet does for them.
After the success of its popular big brother, The Original Magic Bullet, The Baby Bullet Baby Care System launched in December 2010 specifically designed for new moms and parents on-the-go. This safe, non-toxic, BPA-free countertop mini blender allows for the preparation, blending and storing of an entire weeks' worth of nutrient-rich, preservative-free, organic baby food in less than five minutes!
Revolutionizing the way that you feed your baby, The Baby Bullet is specifically designed to blend fruits, vegetables and combination meals from baby's first "stage 1" purees all the way up to stage 3 toddler meals all with one single blade.
As well as spending much more money on jarred baby food, those can often contain unhealthy sugars, fillers and preservatives. Instead, using the cheerfully-designed Baby Bullet's 22-piece comprehensive baby food making system will ensure that you are in control of every ingredient that goes into your baby's food.
Not only that, the Baby Bullet comes complete with everything you need to get started making your baby's food right away - just add the ingredients! Whether you are blending with the Baby Blend Cross Blade for pureed or mixed fruits and vegetables or using the powerful Milling Flat Blade to grind oats, rice and other whole grains into fresh cereal, you'll only be spending pennies per serving.
Although the Baby Bullet already includes everything that you need to make and store your own baby food, they also have two great accessories that make this system even better: the Baby Bullet Turbo Steamer and the Baby Bullet Deluxe Cookbook.
By steaming, defrosting and sterilizing all in one, the Turbo Steamer is the latest useful addition to the Baby Bullet Food Making System. Steam fresh foods in half the time, sterilize pacifiers, toys, bottle accessories and more in seconds, or defrost frozen baby food in just minutes!
And, for help deciding exactly what to make for your little one, the Deluxe Cookbook contains over 200 pages of healthy recipes, food charts and feeding tips for your baby's first three years of development. This book also contains food safety guidelines that every parent should know, including which foods are allergy risks and certain signs of an allergic reaction. Best of all, the cookbook will show you how to get your little one to eat healthy fruits and vegetables without the fuss!
