Homemade Creamy Spinach Rice Puree Recipe for reusable food pouches by Little Mashies
Why is curd a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
Curd is the product of bacterial fermentation of milk and it is good to use for babies who are lactose intolerant, as during the fermentation lactose is converted to lactic acid and is then easier to digest. Along with all nutrients from the milk, curd is rich in good bacteria that strengthen the immune system. It also has beneficial enzymes to help with digestion.
1 cup rice (200g)
1.5 cups of home made stock or water
1 cup of spinach
50g of curd
Step 1: In deep skillet, over medium heat, put rice and cook about 15 minutes. Add stock or water to keep mixture moist whilst cooking.
Step 2: Add in spinach and cook for 5 minutes.
Step 3: Puree the spinach, rice and curd in a food processor or blender, using a little of the cooking liquid to get a desired smooth consistency (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.

I Love To Save Money With Little Mashies
POSTED BY LIBBY
I love to save money and with Little Mashies I am able to do just that. They are so easy to fill and at the end of the day I just wash them up and they're ready to go again the next day. I am filling them with home made yoghurt which saves me a heap of money as I no longer have to purchase the convenience squeezey yoghurts available from the supermarkets.
I Love That My Kids Can Choose The Pouch Color
POSTED BY LIZ FREDRICKSON
I love that my kids can choose the pouch colour they like. Very easy to clean and a good serving size. They make a great ice block for lunch boxes. I have added frozen berries to yoghurt and no issues getting out of the pouch. The name section is really handy and they look different enough my 4 yo packs them back in his lunch bag.
