Sometimes, we can’t control the situation and things might go the way we planned while we are with our little one. Things like being stuck in the MRT or car with your baby without a packed lunch or restaurants in the vicinity can be worrisome. Or you just want your little one to have a bite and then nap happily while you and your husband are enjoying a leisurely meal out. Here are ways on how every parent and child can enjoy the convenience of purees in pouches without contributing to potential feeding problems later on:
Environment: Do not let older babies and toddlers walk around while sucking on the pouches. Make meals and snacks sit-down occasions. This will reduce the risk of choking and help children become mindful eaters who pay attention to their food and stop when full.
Greens: Introduce more challenging vegetables like leafy greens and broccoli as single-ingredient purees rather than mixed with sweet purees so that your baby learns to like their flavor.
Fresh: Food pouches found on the market can have lesser nutrients compared to home-made fresh fruit and vegetable purees. You can make fresh fruit and vegetable purees at home and put them on Sili Squeeze so you won’t worry that your child will be accustomed to store-bought food.
Purees in pouches can be a nutritious addition to our kids' diets and a lifesaving solution for parents. But it is important to integrate them mindfully in eating without compromising the development of eating skills and taste preferences. If you have purees which you like to carry on-the-go kindly share it to us! #silisqueeze #puree #foodpouch #feedingtime
