For Baby Led Weaning and Older Kids

For baby led weaning you skip the baby food puree altogether and start with large (2 finger sized) pieces of the food. We would of course do this on our Little Mashies sucky platter! So from 6-9mths of age in baby led weaning foods should be the size of about 2 fingers so that the baby can pick it up and self feed. They also need to be well cooked so they are soft, and with no loose pieces (for example tiny florets that can break off on broccoli, or a slice of apple that's so thin it can break when gnawed on).
Little Mashies baby led weaning food sizes
From around 9mths with baby led weaning you chop the food very small (to avoid choking). I would suggest 2-4 grains of rice in size. It's a small piece so that if they swallow it whole they won't choke. In traditional baby food recipes this is the stage where we mash food so it has a little texture. At around 12mths of age in baby led weaning the food goes up to bite sizes (and this is the same in non baby led weaning kids), about fingernail sized pieces. Of course some babies will be on a different timeline depending on whether they have heaps or a few teeth. Every baby is different and you just have to watch carefully and get to know how your baby is with food. Never leave them alone whilst eating, and I also recommend sitting them at a table with you for all meals if you can. It helps set the expectation for later in life and you can be a role model for how to eat well. Around 18mths you can offer your little one larger serves again (so a whole apple for example) so that they can learn to take smaller bites themselves, to chew, and to swallow.

Why is potato a great baby food choice?

Potato is the most popular vegetable on the planet. You can add it to the mixes of other vegetables and meat, so to provide your baby with great benefits to its gastrointestinal health, liver protection and provide him with antiviral effect of potatoes. Carrot is sweet, tasty and babies just love it. Carrots are very rich in vitamin A which supports a strong immune system helping to make our little ones grow up nice and strong. Tomato is one of the important vegetables for your baby to eat. It is extremely rich in vitamin A and vitamin C which helps in iron absorption. Tomato is a good source of antioxidants, helps in growing strong bones and boosts immune system.

Little Mashies reusable food pouch reviews

So Cute and They Work Well Too
POSTED BY UNKOWN
These little mashies pouches are so cute and work really well too. Unlike previous pouches I have bought before these are extremely easy to clean. My boys love having their yoghurt from their pouches.
Overall Great Purchase
POSTED BY KATE
I bought these pouches a few months ago and they are such a great idea and save heaps instead of buying disposable yoghurt pouches. They are pretty durable. It would be great if you might sell spare caps as my 5 year old daughter forgot and initially threw away a couple of caps when we first introduced them to her. It would also be good if the pouches maybe came in different sizes, you can't actually fit as much as I'd like in them. Overall a great purchase. With thanks :)
