Why is blueberry a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
This is an all time favourite mix with babies right around the world. We have mums email us all the time giving their tick of approval of this puree... At Little Mashies HQ we absolutely love blueberries! When you give your baby blueberries you are feeding them with one of earths most delicious superfoods. Blueberries are rich in nutrients, vitamins, fibre and antioxidants. Spinach also provides lots of benefits: it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and thanks to a wealth of vitamin K it is great for bone health too. Babies love sweet things so we add apple here for some prebiotic fibre and a little bit of sweetness.
1 cup apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup spinach, stems chopped

Step 1: Steam the diced apples for about 8 minutes and then add the blueberries and spinach to cook for a further 5 minutes.
Step 2: Puree all ingredients in a food processor or blender such as the Baby Bullet system or Beaba Baby Cook.
Step 3: If preparing your baby food recipe in bulk freeze the Apple, Blueberry and Spinach 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
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 reusable yoghurt and baby food pouch reviews
Easy and wholesome food!
POSTED BY SARAH
I hate the idea of buying the sugar filled snacks in pouches. I love being able to put my own yoghurts, purees and custards into the Little Mashies. My little one asks for them all the time now; her faces lights up when she sees the little green man. Super easy to use and clean. I love them and tell all my friends to buy some. Great value for money.

I bought this recently and find it a great product. I love the large opening that helps with filling all different textures from puree to rough mash. Our baby loves to self-feed and this cuts down on the mess when she feeds with a spoon or hands. Surprisingly easy to clean too.
