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). 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.
Turkey baby led weaning
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 turkey a great baby food choice?

Turkey is a great first meat for your baby. It is highly rich in protein and the dark meat from the turkey is also rich in iron. It doesn't have a strong flavour and it is easily mixed with vegetable purees for baby food.

Little Mashies reusable food pouch reviews

I Love These Pouches
POSTED BY CHRISTY ROGERS
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 reccommend these.
These Is An Awsome Way For My Little One To Eat
POSTED BY CHANI
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.
Cute and Convinient
POSTED BY JEAN
My baby loves his Little Mashies meals and I love knowing he's eating healthy, homemade meals and having less mess to clean up. Thank you for also including the extra Paris design pouch to try. I would love it the monster design pouches came with the option of a clear backing to see the pouch contents like the Paris design. Thanks again!
