Every Mom and Dad wants healthy food for Baby, but preparing it can be time-consuming. Beaba Babycook ($149.95) aims to eliminate some of the trouble. Designed to steam, puree, warm, or defrost food, this French appliance lets you make baby food at home with ease. The set comes with a base for water, a 2 1/2-cup plastic bowl with a basket (both dishwasher safe), a spatula, and a booklet of recipes. To use the appliance, place pieces of diced food - any combination of uncooked fruit, meat, fish, or vegetables - in the basket. Steam them, put them in the bowl, and puree. Accessories such as soft spoons and multiportion freezer trays are available. The money you spend on Babycook won’t go into jars of baby food. Available at Isis Maternity, 397 Mass. Ave., Arlington and 110 Second Ave., Needham, 781-429-1500; Williams-Sonoma stores; or go to BEATRICE PELTRE
