We think that the most nourishment comes from home cooked, fresh meals made from quality produce that's why we are offering our best selling Baby Food Recipe Book in an ebook version.
Most baby food from the supermarket is heated to such high temperatures that much of the nutrients are lost! Many are packed with sweet fruit and vegetables under the guise that babies need sweet foods. That's not true! If you feed your baby vegetables they will learn the taste, it's as simple as that! What we feed our children in the early years shapes their relationship with food often right through to adulthood.
Do you really know what is in the food pouch you feed your child?
My name is Talisha and a few years ago I was in and out of hospital with severe digestive issues.
I could only eat purees, broths and soups to try¬†and stop the internal bleeding.
At the same time my daughter Ariella was starting to eat purees, so naturally I gave her the packaged organic ones from the supermarket.
I was sick and they were very convenient so I started to wonder if I could live off them too...
...then I researched the nutritional quality and what I found was astounding.
Even organic and seemingly healthy baby food pouches were always filled with mostly sugary fruit, or sweet vegetables like pumpkin and sweet potato.
Rarely was the meat content above 10% and there was absolutely no guarantee that the food in the pouches was even fresh or local ingredients used.
As we all know the longer a food is stored before eating, the less minerals and vitamins it has in it.
They also use high temperatures to preserve the contents and that process decreases the nutritional value too!
Every single yogurt pouch at the time (even the organic ones) had added sugar.
Next time you pick up a food pouch be sure to turn it over to check the ingredients and the ratio of sugar to protein.
That moment was the driving force behind me creating Little Mashies reusable food pouches and the recipes contained in this book. I know how hard it is being a busy mum, trying to juggle everything and still do our best. Sometimes we have to grab pre-packaged food. But on other days we have the time and energy to bulk make healthy, home made baby food! That's where these recipes come in.
