(CLOSED) WIN a Cherub Baby Glass Baby Bottle Starter Kit + Baby Food Pouches Starter Pack

ThIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENTRIES. The giveaway includes all your baby’s bottle, sippy cup and food on the go needs in two convenient packs. The bottle set comprises of 4 glass bottles along shatter protection silicone sleeves, teats, travel cap seals, sippy cup adaptor and straw adaptor, the 10 re-usable food on the go pouches come with a spoon attachment. Together, they are valued at $87.94

Congratulations to Mel  as the winner of the Wholesome Cook / Cherub Baby givaway! Your “Hulk Food” comment won over the staff at Cherub Baby who chose you as the person who will be receiving their generous prize pack. It was one of my favourites, too! All the best to everyone who entered.  I wish we had a prize pack for everyone, but hey, if you’re already a mumma you have the best gift of them all right in front of you, if you’re expecting, that gift is waiting to come into this world for you. Enjoy xo

We’ve been using Cherub Baby bottles (and breast milk storage bags) from quite early on and absolutely love the safety of the glass.  From about 4 months on Mialina would often have well-blended veggie and organic chicken or veal soup, mixed with some breastmilk for lunch and we found these bottles to be the best. In fact most recent research suggests that introducing potentially allergenic foods such as dairy, wheat, eggs, fish and nuts into a baby’s diet in small amounts – a teaspoon in one meal over a 24 hour period, is more beneficial in preventing allergies than keeping those foods off the menu for longer. She also loved mango and breastmilk smoothies!

With these bottles there is no plastics to worry about, as well as the silicone protective sleeves that not only protect the bottles when they drop, and let me tell you, once your little cherub is in a high chair or a bit more mobile, THEY DO DROP but also turn white if the contents are too hot. How is that drop video for a bit of awesome.

Good luck!

H has a complete aversion to anything not completely smooth and pureed. So apricot chicken with sweet potato is one of his faves. I also try quinoa with zucchini and pumpkin to try and overcome his gag reflex! Blending frozen berries has been really good while H has been sick with a sore throat and teething

Reply
Martyna @ Wholesome Cook June 2, 2017 at 1:42 pm

Wow, Amanda, teething already! Mialina is almost 8 months and yet to have teeth. Mine came through at 13 months though. The blended frozen berries sounds great as pain relief!

Martyna @ Wholesome Cook June 7, 2017 at 8:40 pm

Hi Amanda, he’ll get there – might not be ready for chunky stuff just yet. Mia was the same for a while that’s why we loved the bottles because sometimes, when out especially, it was easier to give her a smooth puree soup through the bottle which she would have in 5 minutes instead of wrestling with spoons and high chairs. We then progressed to chunkier purees at home so that she would get the feel of some texture.

Laura June 2, 2017 at 10:42 am

Jack’s all time favourite meal is pureed steamed broccoli, asparagus and cauliflower veggies mixed with tri coloured quinoa along with a grating of mild goats cheese and finished with a sprinkle of sumac (almost like mac and cheese…but a nutrient rich alternative!) Always a winner in our house.

Martyna @ Wholesome Cook June 7, 2017 at 8:37 pm

Thanks for sharing Kylie, bubs really love stewed apples and it helps relieve constipation they may get once you start introducing extra protein (meat) or when using rice cereal or rice in their meals.

A dear friend makes her own baby teething biscuits.
I’ve tweaked her recipe slightly to include LOW GI Coconut syrup & Omega3 rich flaxmeal… hoping to make it for our lil one when he teethes 🙂

Here’s the recipe:
Wholesome & Nutritious Teething Biscuits

1 Organic egg yolk, lightly beaten
3 tbsp. organic coconut syrup
1 1/2 tbsp organic olive oil
1/4 cup A2 milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp rolled oats, crushed/shredded
1 cup organic flour
2 tbsp flaxmeal
1 tbsp powdered milk

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
Mix all wet ingredients together in a jug.
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine.
Dough will be firm.
Roll out thinly on a floured surface.
Cut into sticks and bake for 15 minutes.

Apple Pie is one of my favourites of all time! I can’t wait to make this baby puree version with Aussie apples to share some apple joy ☺

For 6 months +

You need:
1 Australian Pink Lady Apple
3/4 cup Water
Pinch of Cinnaman

Peel, core and cut the apple into small pieces.

Bring water to the boil in a small saucepan and add apple.

Reduce heat to a simmer for around 10 minutes until the apple softens.

Sprinkle cinnamon onto cooked apple. Blend with a fork or stick blender until pureed consistency.

Serve just warmed and apple pie enjoy! ?

I am pregnant with my first baby and can’t wait to make all homemade baby food for my bundle of joy. Knowing exactly what is going in is so important to me. Cherub baby has all the things I need to make this all happen with the amazing ideas from Wholesome Cook.

Congratulations Rebecca! I am so with you on this! We love picking organic veg and meat for Mia’s soups. I’ve found there’s a distinct lack of quality organic and TASTY food for babies (it comes in handy when travelling and staying in hotels). I’ve been known to take homemade with me.

At the moment we are into greens, they’re so nutritious. My older two enjoy shelling peas so with their help I make a zucchini and pea puree for little miss. My son calls it the baby’s “Hulk Food”. I steam equal qualities of zucchini and fresh shelled peas and then mash. The on the go baby food pouches would be a wonderful way to be able to take our “Hulk Food” out and about.

My little one always enjoyed a pureed of sweet potato, chicken and curry powder… Lots of yummy flavours without having to resort to any added salt!

The best one my 9 month old loves is leek and ricotta fritters, I made them like mini quiche with lots of veggies mixed in he loves them 🙂
He has also really loved frozen berries and sticks of cucumber from 5 months when he started teething, 6th tooth is just about through and this one has been the most painful for him but he is a good eater and still enjoying all of mummy’s cooking 🙂

Reply
Martyna @ Wholesome Cook June 9, 2017 at 11:09 pm

Oh Edan, your comment warms my heart (the mummy’s cooking part, great work already). Those leek and ricotta fritters sound like something we might have to try! Mialina loves quark (Swiss style cottage cheese) and tends to have it with fruit for afternoon tea, but the fritters would make a great morning snack.

It’s amazing how many different foods exist and once bub starts eating you want to share it all! As well as the favourites, like carrot and apple puree, I liked to mix it up – literally! I’d grab the family stew or stroganoff and blend it up! Then I let bub smell what we were eating and smell what he was eating so he knew it was the same.

apple and sweet potato
zucchini and sweet potato.

the food pouches make going out and about much easier to manage

Martyna @ Wholesome Cook June 9, 2017 at 10:56 pm

Thanks Nicole, the pouches do indeed. And we use the small bottles with the travel lids for soups on the go – simply spoonfed out of the bottle. So convenient. Eden (beautiful name, by the way) will get used to chunkier textures for sure. It took Mialina a about 3-4 weeks before she was okay with chunky soups, now she gnaws on a lot of things herself (we are doing a mixture of baby-led weaning and purees). Good luck! x

My Alice with pleasure eats mashed potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onions, spinach, add a little olive oil and mix with a blender. Another time, instead of potatoes, I take turkey fillet. It turns out a homogeneous, not very thick mashed potatoes. It is very tasty, and the main thing is useful.)

I soak the medium grain rice into water and put it in a fridge for a day.Next day, I chop the vegetables(carrot, potato, etc) and chicken or beef meat then boil them together for 1 hour(with water).Then I add washed rice into the stock and boil it.My baby just love it! Sometimes I just use the vegetables, potato, carrot, mushroom and tomato, to make a stock.It’s delicious, too.
