Homemade Lentil, Spinach And Rice Baby Puree Recipe for Little Mashies reusable food pouches
Why is lentil a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
1 cup of lentils (soaked overnight)
1 cup of rice (200g)
3-4 cups of home made stock or water
2 cup of spinach
Step 2: Add in spinach and cook for a further 5 minutes. Then drain the liquid off keeping a little to the side for the blending process.
Step 3: Puree the spinach, lentils and rice in a food processor or blender, using a little of the cooking liquid to get a desired smooth consistency (4 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 these pouches, so easy to fill and wash. The fun artwork on them really appeal to children. Great for my 8 month old and my 5 year old in his pack lunches. I definitely recommend these.

I love that store bought caps fit these. I love making my own food so these are an awesome way for my little one to eat. I found the first difficult to fill as you think it needs more but when you go to seal you realise you have put too much. The only improvement I would make to this product is a line as a guide to tell you it's full enough. But this is easy enough to work out. I have only had mine a week.
