DIY Baby Food!
You want the best start for your baby. And you know that healthy choices are important. That’s why it’s a good idea to make your own baby food – homemade baby food is generally more nutritious because you get to choose high-quality ingredients and it tastes better that the expensive squeezy pouches you buy at the grocery store. But it’s hard to find the time because some days it’s a feat to just take a shower!
Now Quark, a Vancouver-based company designed for parents by parents, has created an amazing system to make feeding your adorable little one easy and stress-free. There’s little prep and clean-up, it costs less, there’s no food waste, and it’s better for the environment, so what's not to love? This is the perfect opportunity for your baby to explore tastes and textures and indulge all their senses. And you’ll have lots of fun making your own baby food too!
Let’s face it…parenting isn’t easy. And when it comes to the challenging parts of it, like introducing solids to your baby, there’s no denying the stress (and the mess!) that ensues. We know that providing fresh, healthy and tasty meals for your little one is top priority, but when it requires either heaps of prep and clean up, or purchasing endless jars and pouches of baby food, the task becomes daunting or costly, and feels unsustainable in our busy lives. Enter Quark, a Vancouver-based parent-owned company focused on creating intelligent, high-quality products that make feeding your babe less stressful, easier on the wallet and environment and, of course, more fun!
The brand’s Quook Baby Food Processor will be your new best friend, whether you’re testing the waters with baby’s first foods or routinely making homemade purées for a picky toddler. Not only does this sleek and stylish smart machine blend and cook fresh baby food, it also has self-cleaning and sterilizing capabilities. You’ll have no trouble getting volunteers for dish duty!

Time is of the essence
How many times have you heard a parent say there aren’t enough hours in a day? If that’s how you’ve been feeling lately, you can make better use of your time by easy steaming and blending with the Quook Baby Food Processor. It’s a simple as adding fruits, veggies and even proteins like beans, meat and fish to create yummy, healthy meals that can be ready in as little as 10 minutes, leaving you with more time to spend with your kids.
Stay in control
Quark’s innovative design allows you to control your machine every step of the way, from cooking to blending to cleaning, and even bottle warming, with its technologically advanced digital touchscreen panel. It’s got a low-water indicator and a timer so you can press start and step away from the kitchen until it’s done. We love that the Quook is guaranteed to purée food to the perfect consistency for baby. Whether you choose the manual or auto-blend function, there’ll be no choking hazards in sight!
One of our favourite things about the Quook Baby Food Processor is its automatic cleaning cycle. Need we say more? Just fill up the blending cup with water and a pump of soap, and with the touch of a button, the machine’s stainless steel blades will handle the cleaning from there. Want to take it one step further? Try the sterilizing option that disinfects the blending cup to ensure a safe, clean start the next time you use the machine. And for the toughest of messes, you’ll be glad to know that all of the blending cup components are top-rack dishwasher safe.
