I LOVE the convenience of the little fruit & veggie pouches they make for kids these days! You can’t beat the portability of throwing one in your purse/diaper bag, OR the ability to get some extra veggies in their diet : )
But even on sale, they are EXPENSIVE! And if you check out the nutrition label they typically have NO nutritional value (fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, etc.) So you’re paying a pretty penny for nothing!
I found these cool reusable pouches online that let you make them at home for much cheaper, with much healthier outcome!
-Hidden ziplock-style opening at the bottom for refilling
-Freezer safe (so you can pop them out and defrost as needed)
This is my favorite recipe, it requires NO COOKING!
1 24oz jar unsweetened applesauce
1 cup chopped raw butternut squash or sweet potato
1 cup spinach
1 tsp cinnamon
Add the ingredients (in order) into a high speed blender; blend until pureed, then fill the pouches and store them in the freezer if you don’t go through them all within a few days.
What’s your child’s favorite pouch type/flavor??
