Baby Food Peach Palooza and Yummi Pouch Portable Storage Container

Posted Feb 22 2013 9:15am

When I had my first baby, the only baby food options to buy out there were the ones in a jar.  Those are great if you are in a pinch, but on the go, they can be kind of a pain.  You have to have a spoon, open the jar, hold the jar with one hand and the spoon with the other.......you get the idea.  But now they have those cool pouches with the little spout that the baby can just suck right out of.  The downside is that they can be kind of expensive.  Recently, Yummi Pouch  emailed me telling me about their product.  I immediately knew it was worth checking out and I was right!

I decided to make 3 different types of Peach baby food.  When I make baby food with peaches, I always use home canned peaches.  Unless of course peaches are in season - nothing better than fresh juicy peaches!  I like to keep my baby food simple and pure.  No fancy ingredients.  These 3 recipes are exactly that.  Pure fruit and nothing more.  

There is some debate about when to start certain foods at what age with babies.  But universally it is agreed upon that 6 months is the age to start introducing food.  Single fruits and vegetables are generally accepted as non-allergenic foods that are safe to start with your baby at 6 months. These recipes are for babies 6+ months.  Always make sure you talk to your pediatrician before introducing solid foods to your baby.  

Pure Peach

 

  • 3 peeled and pitted peaches

          Blend in a blender until smooth.  Serve immediately, or store in the fridge for 2 days.  This can be frozen for up to 3 months in a freezer safe container. 

Sweet Apple and Peaches

  • 3 peeled and pitted peaches
  • 1 apple

Peel and slice apple.  Steam in the microwave or on the stove until soft.  Blend in a blender with peaches until smooth.  Serve immediately, or store in the fridge for 2 days.  This can be frozen for up to 3 months in a freezer safe container. 

Peachy Pear

  • 3 peeled and pitted peaches
  • 3 peeled and cored pears

If using a raw pear, slice in half and steam in the microwave or stove until soft.  If using canned pears, this step is unnecessary.   Blend ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately, or store in the fridge for 2 days.  This can be frozen for up to 3 months in a freezer safe container.

This is one of the best ways I have found to store baby food.  I have used ice cube trays, small tupperware containers, baby food containers.........you name it I have used it.  The great thing about these is that there is no mess involved once you have your baby food inside it!  You don't have to put it in another container, mess with a spoon, etc.  This is how we filled our pouches:

Pour your mixture into the top.  Then seal it up.

Then chow!  The thing I didn't expect, was that my 2 1/2 year old wanted to use it!!  What a great thing to have on the go to get some fruits and veggies in.  This would be really great for kids who have issues with textures.  

 

 You may be wondering if you can freeze these, how you clean them etc.  Wonder no more!  All your questions can be answered on the Yummi Pouch about page.  Anyway - this is one product I will be using for my own baby and would definitely recommend it!
