For Baby Led Weaning and Older Kids

For older kids you could offer this as a smoothie, a fruit salad, or puree and mix with chia seeds for a chia pudding! For baby led weaning you always start with larger pieces of the fruit from the age of 6mths. So about the size of 2 adult fingers. You can offer a mix of baby puree (in our Little Mashies sucky bowl), and they can use our Distractor Cutlery to self feed. On a Little Mashies sucky platter you can offer the large pieces and allow your bubba to explore the taste, texture and squishy feeling of kiki and banana. From around 9-12mths in baby led weaning you usually offer teeny tiny pieces, for non baby led weaning recipes this is where you bring in the chunky mash texture.
After around 12mths both styles of feeding merge together and you offer your little one bite sized pieces. Beyond 18mths you can increase the size again so they can learn how to take small bites themselves. With kiwi and banana you don't really need to cook these for any baby food recipe or baby led weaning recipe. It's because they are already soft foods. But please be mindful if you fed your little one an unripe kiwi or banana it would be harder and may need to be steamed lightly so that it becomes softer. This also applied for harder fruits like apples, they need to be well cooked until soft in the early months of starting solids!

Why is kiwi a great baby food choice?

Kiwi fruit is a high source of vitamin C. It also contains vitamin E, vitamin K and magnesium which are all great for baby food. Banana is a good source of vitamin B6 as well as being high in potassium and fibre. Green bananas are also a source of prebiotics for gut health. And remember... a variety of plant foods also helps babies to develop a diverse microbiome (good range of helpful gut bacteria). If you would like to learn more about gut bacteria I've written a children's book call Tummy Buggies. You can also read my story, as I've had a very long health history with gut health issues and have tried so many things! If you have any questions in this area just reach out!

Little Mashies reusable food pouch reviews

Cleans so easily!
POSTED BY SUZY
I thought food would get stuck but it doesn’t at all- it just rinses straight out. The material is a lot thicker than I expected too but you can still see through enough to see that it is clean. It is also really sturdy and doesn’t leak at all.
Love it!

My little man of 2 loves eating from his "monster". He was excited from the minute we got them in the post, and that hasn't worn off.
AMAZING!!!

We loved these, my son is new to the world of pouch foods, but these are great! I can put all my home cooking in there and send him to daycare with his little mashie and I know he will be getting his healthy delicious treat......and he can eat it all by himself!
