When Roy was little and starting solid foods I made a lot of my own purees. (I’m not brave enough for baby led weaning ha!). We gave him my homemade purees when we were home but bought plenty of those handy squeeze pouches for when we were out and about.
I recently receive an Infantino Squeeze Station to try out and since Roy still won’t eat vegetables on a daily basis I tried it out for him! (I can’t be the only mom who’s toddler won’t eat veggies unless they’re mixed with fruit am I??)
Let me just tell you my mind was blown. And no, I’m not joking!
Had we would have had this when Roy was small I would have used it ALL the time. You literally just mix up the puree like you would normally and rather than put it in a container, you can put it directly in a pouch!
Here is my recipe!
1 cup of mango
a handful of spinach
(I need to disguise the veggies as much as possible with Roy…).
Just mix the ingredients together in a blender, attach the bags and fill tubes, pour in the puree, press it down and attach the cap! Seriously so easy!
Another nice thing about the pouches is you can freeze them for up to 4 months! I’m planning on making a ton of varieties for both Roy and Penelope (for when she starts solids in just a couple of months!!).
If you’re a mom of a baby starting solids or a toddler who won’t eat veggies and you rely on pouches to get nutrients in them I highly recommend the Squeeze Station!
