Homemade Beet Banana & Blueberry Baby Puree Recipe for Little Mashies reusable food pouches
Why is beet, banana and blueberry a great baby food choice for reusable pouches?
As your baby grows, the beneficial bacteria in the gut is establishing itself laying the foundations for a healthy immune system, and banana helps provide the probiotics to feed them. Beets are of great importance for healthy development of your baby as they are highly nutritious and rich in Calcium, Potassium and vitamin A, have a very high level of fibre and their typical vivid purple colour makes the food attractive to kids. When you give your baby blueberries you will feed it with a super food, rich in nutrients, vitamins, fibre and antioxidants.
1 ripe banana (200g)
1 cup of blueberry
Step 1: Peel and chop beet into small pieces the size of a thumbnail.
Step 2: Bring water to a boil in pan over medium heat. Add the beet to a steamer basket and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Step 3: Add the blueberries to the beet and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Step 4: Puree beet, blueberries and banana in a food processor or blender, using a little of the cooking liquid to get a desired smooth consistency (2 tbsp). You can also use breast milk or formula to mix with the puree.
Step 5: 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 6: 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 7: 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.

I'm Very Happy With Little Mashies
POSTED BY JALNA
I'm very happy with Little Mashies! I bought these so I could control the snacks I send with my son to school, so far he has had fruit & yogurt, apple & pear sauce and custard. I make a batch, freeze, then pop in his lunchbox. They've been great for him, as he is too busy playing at lunch to sit down and eat snacks with a spoon, and I'm happy as I know he is not eating additives and preservatives.
