Cherub Baby

Christmas Countdown – Day 13

Now that Summer is finally here many Australian families will be spending as much time as possible outside with their little ones. Going out with kids can be quite an undertaking; nappies, drinks, snacks, there is so much to bring! Thanks to Cherub Baby we have a fabulous Summer Gift Pack to give away that will make those on-the-go meals a breeze:

Cherub Baby Summer Gift Pack

We all know Cherub Baby from its fantastic range of baby bottles and cups but did you know Cherub Baby also helps mums create convenient, healthy, homemade food and snacks for at home and on the go without breaking the bank?

Reusable Food PouchesThere is no denying it, those so called ‘convenience foods’ for babies are a costly business. All those single serve pouches and pots are terribly expensive and I haven’t even started about the nutritional value of many pre-packaged snacks. Save yourself a bucket load of money and know exactly what’s going in your baby’s tummy with the convenient Cherub Baby Reusable Food Pouches ($12.95, 10pk). They are microwave, bottle warmer, freezer safe, portable and ideal for babies on solids.

On-the-Go Food Pouch WarmerWhether you want to serve your baby a warm dinner or a cool snack, Cherub Baby will ensure it’s always at the right temperature no matter where you are. The compact On the Go Food Pouch Warmer and Cooler ($24.95) is specifically designed to fit store bought or home filled food pouches. It warms and cools without the use of batteries or electricity, over and over again, how amazing is that? No more looking for a microwave or heating in warm water!

Freeze n SquuezeThe brand new Cherub Baby Freeze n Squeeze Reusable Ice Pop Pouches ($12.95, 20pk) are an absolutely must have for warm summer days. Fill them up with your favourite drink or yummy fruit puree and pop them in the freezer, that way you will always have a healthy and refreshing treat on hand to surprise kids of all ages. The easy-to-use ziplock pouches are leakproof and of course they are completely free from PVC, BPA and Phthalates.

People who know me personally will know that I don’t give my children lollies, chocolate or ice cream, in fact they eat rather healthy all around. You may think this makes me a mean mum but as they have never had it before they don’t feel like they are missing out at all. Of course I know that kids love a cold treat in summer and a piece of watermelon gets boring after a while too, so I was really excited to learn about the Zoku Quick Pop Maker from Sukimama.

The Zoku Quick Pop Maker makes yummy home made ice blocks and does it in a flash, hence the name. Say goodbye to the impractical old school ice block molds that take over a day to freeze and hello to the fabulous Zoku Quick Pop Maker which takes just 7-9 minutes to deliver a freshly made, healthy ice block for your little ones to enjoy. Do you think it sounds to good to be true?

I’ll admit that I thought it sounded rather magical and maybe a little glorified but I was wrong. When my kids ask me for a treat I get out some fresh ingredients (fresh fruit, yoghurt, natural fruit juice), grab my Zoku Quick Pop Maker from the freezer and fill the three compartments. You can watch the ice blocks freeze and just 7 minutes later my kids are enjoying their ice blocks.

The Zoku concept is actually very simple: the unit containing a refrigerant liquid is kept in the freezer so it is frozen at all times. First you insert the sticks in the cativities, then you pour your ingredients in and your future ice pop starts freezing from the outside in. Once you can see that the contents are frozen you use the Super Tool (supplied) to gently release the ice block from the mold, pop on the drip cup and you’re ready!

The Original Zoku Quick Pop Maker can make three ice blocks at a time, and up to 9 nine ice blocks before it needs to go back in the freezer. The first round will be the fastest and it take a little longer each round. There is also a Zoku Duo Quick Pop Maker ($56.95) available which makes two ice pops at a time. If you think even 7 minutes is too long to wait you can make your Zoku ice blocks ahead of time so you always have some on hand, they can be stored in the Zoku Quick Pop Storage Case ($29.95).

Once you have mastered the Zoku Quick Pop Maker you can expand your repertoire by adding pieces of fruit, create different patterns and add flavoured cores. You can even turn your ice pops into little artworks by using special Zoku accessories like the Zoku Character Kit ($21.95), no store bought ice block can beat these cheeky creatures! There are many Zoku video’s available on YouTube to provide tips and tricks.
