Feeding Your Baby: Oxo Tot Food Masher and Glass Baby Blocks


When you have a picky eater, getting him or her to eat healthy foods can feel like an overwhelming and impossible task. It’s even more frustrating when you take the time to prepare a healthy, tasty dish that you are certain they will love, only to have them refuse to eat it.

Fortunately, preparing kid- friendly, healthy foods doesn’t have to be complicated. One food that both my kids love is sweet potato. Sweet potato is super easy to make and is full of vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids. I give it to my kids as a snack or meal at least twice a week.

All you have to do is this:

  1. Spread olive oil on a baking sheet.
  2. Slice or dice your sweet potato. If you are preparing this for new eaters, you probably want to peel the skin off.
  3. Lay potato onto baking sheet. Generously brush olive oil onto potato.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper onto sweet potato.
  5. Set oven to 375 degrees and bake until the sweet potato is soft – approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

For new eaters, you can easily mash peeled pieces of sweet potato using an Oxo Tot food masher to create instant, fresh baby food. As a mama of two, I found it super convenient when feeding both a toddler and a baby.

I am a big fan of Oxo Tot’s well designed line of baby products, and this food masher is no exception. The compact, portable Food Masher quickly and thoroughly mashes fruit, veggies and more for fresh, fast baby food. The ridges on the Masher and inside the bowl ensure efficient mashing, and the teeth on the Masher are designed to fit between the ridges to get every last bit of food. It makes creating soft baby food SO easy. Simply mash and wash. That’s it! Anyone whose ever spent hours slaving over a food processor to make trays of pureed baby food cubes can appreciate that amazing simplicity. The masher comes apart and can be stored within the bowl, making it perfect for on the go meals with your baby.

I love that when you are finished feeding your little one, you can just put the lid on the bowl and be on your way. This is SO perfect for when you are on the go. I think every mama needs one of these in her diaper bag!

Another amazing product from Oxo Tot are these beautiful glass baby blocks.  They are made of durable borosilicate glass, which is thermal shock resistant. That means they can go directly from the freezer to the oven or microwave with no need to wait until your little’s ones meal is fully defrosted before heating it up. In our house, we are very proactive in trying to limit the contact our food has with plastic, and these glass blocks are a perfect glass baby food storage solution. They come in a stackable tray so you can store multiple blocks without taking up a lot of refrigerator space.

These baby blocks are sized with little ones in mind. They are big enough to hold baby’s meal but small enough to slip into your diaper bag or purse.  The easy-to-use SNAP lids are leak-proof so you don’t have to worry about opening your bag to find a surprise food bomb .
