Easy baby food puree combinations and recipes

By July 18, 2017 Blog

Making baby food in bulk couldn’t be easier with these easy baby food combinations and recipes for Sinchies reusable pouches

Making baby food in bulk saves time, is cost effective and ensures that you always have healthy homemade goodness on hand!

I started off super simple first – with single flavours of purees in a runny liquid form and from their gradually increased the thickness of the purees and followed on by introducing combinations.

I would do a big steam up once a month and freeze cubes of the fruit and vegetables – using some cheap ice cube trays. Once frozen, I’d pop them out into reusable sandwich bags for storage until needed.

This way I found that if my baby didn’t really like something (after trying about 15 times on different occasions) it was okay as the pureed foods weren’t mixed together and I’d reduce food wastage.
When out and about or even at home (to save mess when I’m on the minutes) I’d choose whatever flavours I wanted or combinations, pop them into a 140ml Sinchies reusable pouch or our fancy new 150ml top spout pouches

So I’ll start with some easy baby food combinations first and then will share with you my 5 favourite baby food recipes.
