Puree Recipes for GoFreshBaby Reusable Pouches
Making your own baby food is so easy and economical! Fruit and vegetable purees are great options for infants as well as toddlers because they pack a nutritional punch, are easy to make and store. The best thing is that children seem to love purees because they are easy to eat and children can feed themselves by using food pouches.
GoFreshBaby reusable food pouches have a very secure double zip seal closure – this means, no mess! Making a fruit or vegetable puree is fairly simple. All you have to do is squash a fruit or blend it into puree. Vegetables can be steamed and then blended before putting them into food pouches. However, if your child is ready to try on new tastes and textures, here are a few food puree recipes that will offer toddlers a whole new world of taste.
- Coconut Sweet Potato Puree: Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious. Simply bake 2 sweet potatoes at 400 degree F for an hour. Once they cool down, peel off the skin and scoop it out into a food processor along with one-third cup of coconut milk. You can add a teaspoon of cinnamon to jazz up the puree. Not only can children feed themselves this nutritional and yummy mix with GoFreshBaby food pouches but you can even store the pouch in the freezer for later use.
- Kale, Cheese and Potato Puree: Kale is a treasure trove of nutrients like Vitamin C, Beta Carotene and other anti-oxidants. Steam enough potatoes to make one cup, add kale to the steamer and cook till potatoes are tender. Puree the ingredients with 2 tablespoons of milk or water and 2 tablespoons of grated cheddar cheese. Cool the mixture and voila!
- Butternut Squash and Date Puree: Butternut squash is a great source of Vitamin C but it isn’t very sweet on its own. Bake 1 half of butternut squash after removing the seeds for approximately 45 minutes or till it is tender. Soak dates in warm water for 15 minutes and blend the ingredients into a sweet smooth puree that is just the right consistency to be served in food pouches.
All purees can be stored in the refrigerator for 48 hours. If you freeze the mix immediately, purees can last up to 3 months.
