Homemade Apple, Banana And Cinnamon Baby Rice Porridge Recipe for reusable food pouches by Little Mashies
Why is apple a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
Apples are great choice for one of your babies first fruit purees. They are full of nutrients and rich in two types of fiber – soluble and insoluble. They are easy to prepare and easy to digest, and babies just love them in any food combination because of their sweet taste. When making your own home made baby food with apples remember they can be prepared in different ways to provide alternative textures and tastes. Apples can be baked or steamed, and they can even be mixed with spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon. In dinner meals apple is great mixed with pork, and I've even had it successfully with turkey and lamb.
1 ripe banana (200g), peeled and chopped
1 ripe apple (200g), peeled, cored and diced
1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon (optional)
Step 1: Steam the diced apples in a stovetop steamer or a Beaba Baby Cook system for about 10 minutes or until soft.
Step 2: Add cinnamon to cooked apple and banana and mash with a fork or purée the fruits in a food processor for a smoother consistency.
Step 3: If preparing your baby food recipe in bulk freeze the puree into ice-cube trays or spoon it straight into Little Mashies reusable food pouches and then store them in the fridge or freezer. For instructions on how to fill a refillable pouch you can read our blog. For info on how long to freeze specific baby foods for we have the information here.
Step 4: Label and date your homemade pouches so that you know when to use the puree by. There is a space on the back of the Little Mashies yoghurt and baby food pouches so that you can write all the details.
Step 5: To clean your reusable food pouches you can check out our Little Mashies video here. Little Mashies are see through when held towards light, so it is very easy to see that all of the food is washed out. Because of the specifically designed curved shape, all of the food washes straight out when held upside down under a tap. Little Mashies can also be used in the dishwasher and steam sterilisers, and are BPA free, Phthalate Free, and PVC free.

Ticks all the boxes... firstly, the ziplock is SUPER strong, something I have been failed by in the past with similar items. It's a good size for toddler yoghurts etc, and its bright green appearance and 'little mashie' makes it pretty cool :) ! Thanks!
My kids love them

My first time at buying re-usable pouches and they are great. A good size and easy to clean. I love knowing that I've saved money making my own healthy food/ yoghurt and am making it fun for the kids to eat!! They don't ask for the pre-packaged pouches any more at the shops because we have our own :) Thanks Little Mashies.

They are great for my children lunch boxes and as well as for snacks for my baby. I will definitely be purchasing more of these. Also very easy to clean!
