BABY TEA: Herbal tea to help calm and relax babies from 2 weeks old Read more >>
Glass graters have been used for generations by mums to prepare pureed fruit and vegetables when first weaning their babies. Later they have been used at times of illness and convalescence, both for babies and young children but also for adults of any age with a restricted diet due to illness. Nowadays, mums often find it difficult to make a very fine puree with modern blenders. Using a glass grater gives you exactly the right consistency of fruit or vegetables you need when preparing your home made baby food. Experience shows us that no other grater can achieve this consistency with so little mess or waste.
A glass grater not only preserves the vitamins better than a metal one it also keeps the natural taste of fresh fruit or vegetables. Because there is little or no need to cook the fruit or vegetables beforehand, using a glass grater further enhances your ability to feed your baby just the pure goodness of raw food while making sure there are no nasty lumps to contend with at this early stage.
Starting to wean your baby is an exciting time for both baby and mum. Your baby will take only a small amount of fruit to begin with, perhaps start with apple. Ululas advice is to always use organic fruit and vegetables whenever possible and to not cook the fruit and vegetables so that all the vitamins which are sensitive to heat are preserved. This has the great added benefit of getting your baby used to the taste of fresh fruit.
Raw food has a high vitality and strengthens the body. Occasionally it happens that all the information in a living raw food are too much for a young baby starting to wean. Therefore, it is important to start slowly and perhaps give only the juice from an apple collected in the glass grater. Cut the apples in quarters, remove pips and core and grate on the glass grater (nail friendly!) to leave you with just the peel in your hand.
"I just wanted to thank you for suggesting the glass grater...I was slicing my fingers on the metal grater before and willing to try anything! I have to say when it arrived I looked at it and thought it could not possibly work. However, I was amazed at how easy it is to use (and clean!) and what smooth, fresh, puree it makes. So, many thanks!"
As your child gets older you can introduce a greater range of pureed fresh fruit and vegetables, lightly steaming where appropriate. To enhance your home made baby food add a small amount of the fresh pureed fruit and vegetables to a heated Holle vegetable jar or one of the Holle Organic Porridges.
