I’m a new mum and it’s time to start thinking about weaning! For some it’s home made, for others it’s food lead and for the rest it’s shop bought pouches....from attending a weaning class today there was a discussion on pouches. Whether or not you are into them. I realised just how big the pouches are and how much could be wasted...after reading the back of an Ella’s kitchen food pouch I noticed they could be frozen...Great I thought! But after making my own veg purées up and dividing them into cube ice trays I thought..why not divide the Ella’s fruit purées too, they will go further. So that’s what I have done, not sure if it’s been done before but it will help save barely eaten pouches going in the bin, just thought I would share. smile

You are of course welcome to use pouches but watch out as their production methods involve heat treating (so that they don't need to be stored refrigerated) and this kills a lot of the nutritional value. Therefore homemade is always better but it's your baby so do as you please. Good luck smile

@RachPL I also freeze the fruit ones into ice lolly mounds. Great on DD sore gums. Keeps her busy for ages. One pouch does four lollies.
