Homemade Chicken Zucchini & Carrot Baby Food Recipe for Little Mashies reusable food pouches
Why is chicken, carrot and zucchini a great baby food choice for reusable pouches?
Chicken is a highly nutritional baby food, rich in protein, vitamin B6 and the powerful antioxidant selenium and the best part is that it contains less fat that other meats. Adding carrots that are very rich in vitamin A you will support a strong immune system of your baby helping him to grow up nice and strong. Zucchini is ideal addition for baby food because of its soft, delicate flavour and it’s richness in water and dietary fiber, a small amount of carbohydrates and sugar, and absolutely no fat.
2 zucchini, diced
500g of chicken breast mince
1 cup of carrots, diced
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1 cup of homemade vegetable stock or water
Step 2: Add the zucchini. Cover and simmer until zucchini are of mashing consistency, and the liquid is almost gone (about 10 minutes). Add liquid as needed to keep the mixture from browning.
Step 3: Mash with a fork for an older baby or puree until smooth for a younger baby.
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.

These Are Great
POSTED BY JENNIE
Spoon feeding was just too slow for our hungry little man - these are great! So much better being able to feed him home cooked food through a pouch rather than buying them! Satisfying hearing him hum 'yum yum yum' while he was sucking away :-)

It's great to be able to pack easy to eat, healthy snacks that the kids love without the wasteful packaging. We so far have used them for yoghurt in lunch boxes. Look forward to using them for home made baby food when bubs is big enough for that.
Terrific bought a set for a friends kids as well
