What do pretty much all kids eat? Fruit! What do they pretty much all dislike? Vegetables! Izzy has loved applesauce since she first had a tiny taste at 4 months old. I want to share with you all how I get some veggies mixed into applesauce without Izzy knowing. Continue to offer veggies at meal time, but in between sneak veggie vitamins in!
Ready for my secret to sneaking in extra veggies?
What do you put the applesauce in? Reusable pouches from ChooMee. They are perfect for little hands that want to eat messy purée. I freeze most packets and put a few in my fridge. ChooMee also makes Sip’n covers. They are soft for little mouths that love to chew and they keep the messy spills down. Best part, they are compatible with many pouches if you don’t feel like making your own! Click here and scroll down to see the reusable and disposable brand packets that fit with this cover.
I pour applesauce into the packet, about halfway. Then I add a tablespoon of the veggie mix and then add more applesauce until there is 3/4-1 inch left to the top. You will want that room in order to zip the bottom out without spillage. Once the packet is closed shake it up and put it in your freezer or fridge. Remember if you are freezing, do no fill too much so there is room for some expansion.
Cheers to healthy snacking in and out of the home.
