Eebee’s Mix & Mash Adventures in the Kitchen for Baby and You. eebee’s is bringing you a brand new adventure starting today, November 4, and you can purchase this fun set at Barnes and Noble.

Ever thought of bringing baby in the kitchen to help prepare her meals? Yeah I can’t say I really would have before I was introduced to eebee’s. This is the first ever cooking-with-your baby book by eebee’s Adventures and it combines nutrition, play and family time. Sounds good to me, I’m in 🙂 The Washington Post states that there is an increasing trend in feeding babies ‘real food’ opposed to the more traditional jar bland baby food. Not just for healthy reasons either but because it’s more economical, and us moms are all about that! The number of families eating together every night and kids’ cooking classes and cookbooks are on the rise. Kids’ participating in meal prep and there is data that states that kids who help eat healthier.

Zero to Three is a national nonprofit organization helping improve the lives of infants and toddlers. Here is what they say:

  • When you feed your baby you are doing a lot more than providing the nutrition to support her physical growth. You are also nurturing her social, emotional and intellectual growth.
  • Mealtime is more than just food; from baby’s point of view, it’s time to take it all in and explore and feel close to her parents.
  • While it can be messy, letting your baby explore her food helps her eventually learn to feed herself. This builds her confidence that she can take care of herself and prepares her to take on new challenges.

Baby mealtime is easier, smarter and fun. You can mash it, smash it, smoosh it, goosh it, shake it, coat it, or stir it. “Mix&Mash is an “organic” extension of eebee’s everyday, everywhere approach to celebrating the magic in a baby’s day to day experiences,” says Stephen Gass, president of Every Baby Company.

The oversized baby board book features 6 nutritious and simple hands-on-baby food recipes, playful rhymes on each page, and pictures of eebee and real babies engaging in the interactive experiences and discoveries with real food.

That is a lot of great reasons and info to support this great book and DVD. One thing most of my parent reader want to know is, how did it work for you? I made Curr-eed Rice and Banana Recipe with Alivia and I have to say it was a ‘smashing good time’. She enjoyed eating as well as watching the fun interactive DVD.
