Homemade Fish And Vegetable Puree Recipe for reusable food pouches by Little Mashies
Why is sweet potato a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
Sweet potatoes are a great first food for your baby. There are many cultures around the world who introduce vegetables to their babies before introducing fruits. Sweet potato is one of the more popular of these. Being rich in antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin C and B complex vitamins, iron and phosphorus, sweet potatoes are a powerhouse of goodness.Compared to potato they are low GI, but their high level of stach makes sweet potatoes a high-calorie food, important for giving energy to your baby ecspecially if they aren't eating as much as you would like.
1 cup white fish, poached, with bones and skin removed
1/2 cup sweet potato potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 zucchini, diced
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 tomato diced
1 tsp parsley, chopped
Step 1: Steam sweet potato and carrot pieces until cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Step 2: Add zucchini and tomato and steam a further 5 minutes.
Step 3: Add the poached fish, vegetables and parsley to a food processor or blender and mix well on high. You can add breast milk, water or formula if a smoother consistency is desired. If your baby is older you can simply mash the ingredients together.
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.

Love These Little Mashies
POSTED BY ANGE ALLAN
Love these Little Mashies. Wish I'd had them when my kids were little. They are 13, 11 & 10 now but still a fantastic addition to the family. 3 different colours is perfect, so we can personalise the contents for each individual. I'm finally able to send Mr Fussy, to school, with healthy smoothies that he loves. Thanks
