Homemade Baby Food Squeeze Pouch

by Eat Well with Lex

Homemade baby food squeeze pouches are easy to make and loaded with fresh fruits, vegetables, and nutrients. They are portable and perfect for on-the-go moms who want a quick and simple way to feed their little ones. Today I am sharing what I use to make the pouches and four healthy homemade puree recipes to get you started.

I love making meals for my baby foodie Aria-Milan, but whew, she knew how to keep her mama busy in the kitchen. Planning and preparing meals for your little one can be very time-consuming and stressful especially when they love to eat like mine. Having these food pouches have made my life easier on busy days. With these food pouches, you can pack in a bunch of vegetables, fruits, grains, and even your baby’s daily supplements. Plus, you can customize them to your child’s liking. They are easy to make a big batch, freezer-friendly, and cheaper and healthier than store-bought.

If you have a picky eater, these homemade baby and toddler food squeeze pouches will ensure they eat their veggies. The four recipes below are loaded with powerful veggies and taste amazing. Trust me, your little one will take these down in a matter of minutes. Aria approves of every recipe and always comes back for more.

Equipment Needed For Baby Food Pouches

I use the Infantino Squeeze Station and absolutely love it. It’s so easy to use and clean up. It comes with some pouches but you will need more because they go fast. For reusable pouches, I recommend these refillable baby food pouches.

You will also need a blender to make the puree. I use the Ninja Foodi Power Blender & Food Processor.

How to Make Homemade Food Pouches:

  1. Blend the ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.
  2. Set up the squeeze station (Instructions included in box).
  3. Pour or spoon puree mix into each container and use the press tool to push puree down into the pouch.
  4. Twist on cap to seal the pouch.
  5. Label each pouch with date and recipe.

Tips for Success:

  • Label the bags before adding content. It makes it easier to write on.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to each recipe to help preserve them.
  • Cook all vegetables and grains before blending.
  • Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days or freeze up to 1 month.

Hello,
Are reusable pouches from Amazon compatible with the infantino system?
