Homemade Apricot, Carrot & Nutmeg Rice Porridge Recipe for Little Mashies reusable food pouches
Why is apricot a great baby food choice?
Apricots are extremely nutrient rich fruit for baby food. They act as a gentle laxative and also help in brain development. Carrots are very rich in vitamin A which supports a strong immune system helping to make our little ones grow up nice and strong.Rice is rich in vitamins of B complex and protein. It helps in digestive problems and diarrhea, and cultures all around the world have used rice in baby food.
4 tbsp. rice flour
1 cup of carrots, diced
1 cup of apricots, pitted and diced
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup water
Instructions:Step 1: Bring the water to the boil in a small saucepan. Add carrot cubes and cook for 8 minutes.
Step 2: Add the apricots, rice and nutmeg, then – stirring often – simmer gently for 5 minutes until most of the water has evaporated.
Step 3: Puree the mixture in a food processor and serve. This is also delicious with a little ginger instead of nutmeg.
Step 5: 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 6: 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.

We are very happy with the Little Mashies reusable pouch system. It's a great comfort to know that my baby is eating quality homemade food and the convenience of these pouches makes that so much easier. They are so easy to use and clean, I couldn't be happier!

Absolute peace of mind knowing that I control what goes in every pouch and my kids still love every mouthful! I was skeptical about how they are to clean and it took me a while to buy them BUT...they are just as easy to clean as you say they are!! Absolutely perfect product for a very food conscious mother. Love them and so do my 2.5 year old and 15 month old. Highly, highly recommend. Great service as well!

I love them!! So sick of freezing containers that you cannot take out and about so I love these! I freeze them and they defrost so quickly! My 6 year old takes them to school and my 6 month old uses them too so convenient!
