Chicken, Chickpea And Tomato Baby Recipe for Little Mashies Reusable Food Pouches
Why is chickpea a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
Chickpeas are excellent source of energy and are a highly desirable food for your baby being an alternative source of protein rather than animal meat. They are not just rich in protein, but also minerals, iron and fibre what makes them very important for a developing digestive tract. Used in baby food they add an extra dimension to more traditional vegetable baby purees.
500g Chicken thigh, skinned and diced
4 Tomatoes, diced
2 cups of cooked Chickpeas
1 cup home-made vegetable stock or water
1/2 Onion, roughly chopped
Instructions:Step 1: In a large deep skillet, over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, chicken, chickpeas and onion and cook until soft. Add stock or water to keep mixture moist whilst cooking.
Step 2: Mash with a fork, or puree in a food processor for a younger baby. Freeze remaining puree for later.
Note:You could also use this recipe as a sauce with pasta or rice.
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.

Little Mashies Are Great
POSTED BY ALISON
My 5 year old son loves our home made Greek yoghurt with various fruit mixed in. Trouble is now he's started school he tells me he just doesn't have time to sit & eat with a spoon (not to mention the mess he makes on his uniform). But since buying the little mashies he thinks its great! Not only are they cool monsters, but he can demolish his favourite yoghurt in no time & get outside to play with his friends.
Kids Find Them Easy To Use

They are strong and the kids find them easy to use. Handy product to help organise lunchboxes in the morning.
I Love The Design Of These
POSTED BY JULIA
I love the design of these! They are great for lying flat, or you could get a box and stack them standing up and just pull them out one at a time. They're super easy to clean, and easy for kids to use.
