Homemade Broccoli Baby Puree Recipe for reusable food pouches by Little Mashies
Why is broccoli a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
Broccoli is extremely rich in soluble fiber and it can help loosen the bowel, so it perfect to add to your baby food. It is also very convenient for finger food, as its flowers can be attractive to your baby, and the stems are easy to grip. When cooked, brocolli can be soft and mushy. For older kids you can try raw broccoli with dip. We have always called brocolli "trees" in our family, making them a bit more fun.
250g fresh broccoli
Step 1: Cut broccoli into small pieces.
Step 2: Steam the broccoli in a stovetop steamer or a Beaba Baby Cook system for approximately 8 minutes or until tender.
Step 3: Puree the broccoli in a food processor or blender, using a little of the cooking liquid to get a desired smooth consistency (usually 1-2 tablespoons).
You can also use breast milk or formula to mix with the puree.
Step 4: 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 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.

The Kids Love Them
POSTED BY MANDS452
My kids love eating yoghurt on the go but I found that we were going through so many it was costing us a fortune and the sugar content etc was not ideal. We have been using the mashies and making our own yoghurt, the kids love them just as much and I am much happier....we are going to try porridge for a quick breakfast on the go now that the weather is cooling down.
Really Easy To Use And Clean

Really easy to use and clean. I use them for my 2 & 4 year olds' yoghurt when we're out and about. So much better knowing they're eating natural yoghurt with fruit without the extra sugar in the store bought yoghurt squeezies.

Great product. The kids and baby have loved them! It would be handy (for the parents) to have a clear window on the back in order to see what it's been filled with
