  • If mixing purees, add the ingredients to a small bowl. Stir to combine well.
  • Add to the pouch, avoiding overfilling. If using a zip bottom style of pouch, be sure the cap is on to prevent the puree from coming out.
  • Serve or store for up to 24 hours and serve.


  • If using a pouch with a zipper bottom, like this one from Wee Sprout, avoid overfilling to prevent difficulty sealing the pouch.
  • Be sure the mixture is totally smooth to avoid it becoming stuck in the opening of the pouch.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon hemp seeds to any mixture for extra healthy fats.
  • Add 2 tablespoons full fat coconut cream or plain yogurt to the mashed sweet potato or squash for healthy fats.
  • Try any other Baby Food Combination in a pouch.
  • Try any of my No-Cook Baby Foods in a pouch.

  • Combine pouches with baby led weaning foods for a wide range of texture exposure.
