When my kids were young, I was probably one of the most "green" parent on the planet, though going green never entered my mind because nobody knew the terminology, "going green," back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
Like so many other parents raising kids in those years, I used cloth diapers, cloth wash rags, and a baby grinder to prepare meals for my baby. I would never have spent a lot of money on ANYTHING during those years, but I might have invested in something that didn't exist back then, the Baby Bullet.
My youngest daughter, Brittney, was given the Baby Bullet a a gift from her mother-in-law. The $100 price tag seemed a little outrageous, but when you factor in the cost of baby food for the time it takes baby to eat baby food, the Baby Bullet more than pays for itself. According to the Baby Bullet web site, what you get is a week's worth of food for less than $3.00.
As you can see by the above ad, Kohl's is selling the Baby Bullet online for only $59.99 (as of today, May 2, 2012).
My daughter purchases organic fruits and vegetables the whole family can eat, and for the baby boils the veggies until they are soft, places those veggies or fruits in the Baby Bullet, and pours them into Baby Bullet containers. What comes out is exactly the consistency of any store-bought baby food.
Cleaning the Baby Bullet is easy, too, and knowing you're feeding your baby only the healthiest foods is a one of the most rewarding features of the Baby Bullet. The Baby Bullet comes with containers to hold food and and you can also purchase an all-in-one steamer, defroster, and sterilizer.
Instead of standing in the baby aisle trying to figure out what to buy for your baby's meals, go to the organic food section in the grocery store where you do all your other shopping, and pick organic fruits and vegetables for your family. Set some aside for your baby and use the Baby Bullet to give your new family member a great start in nutrition.
