We Love Our Little Mashies
POSTED BY A CUSTOMER
We love our Little Mashies, my youngest has just started Kindy and has certain diet requirements. They love their Little Mashie in their lunch box, i often get told off if I choose the wrong colour...purple seems to be a favourite at the moment! It makes my life much easier. So easy to fill, clean and re use! Thank you :)
Absolutely Thrilled With My Purchase

Absolutely thrilled with my purchase, not only do they look great but they are easy to wash, clean and fill. Def worth the money, we've only used it for custard and yoghurt so far but much cheaper than buying the squeezie yoghurts from the supermarket and we aren't contributing to landfill everyday.

Amazing! Saves so much time when doing anything. Takes hardly anytime too fill them pop them in the fridge and go. I have two young girls who demand food for the moment they wake up so these are perfect for that demanding 6:30am craziness:)
Why is beetroot a great baby food choice?
Oh my gosh, beetroot is awesome! It's strange how here in Australia we mostly love it but in other countries people tend to think beets are a little bit weird! Don't be fooled! This root vegetable is sweet and can be cooked so many ways it's incredible how versitile it is. Highly nutritious and rich in Calcium, Potassium and vitamin A, beets are of great importance for the healthy development of your baby. They also have a very high level of fiber, and their typical vivid purple color make the food attractive to kids. You can use beetroot juice to make icing or cakes pink, you can cut them and make beetroot chips in the oven. You can add a little to your mashed potato to make it bright on the plate. Beetroot is great for your blood and as a toddler I even gave Ariella carrot, beetroot and celery juice in small amounts to get her used to having vegetable juice instead of fruit juice. It's still sweet it just has more of an earthy taste when juiced. Oh and how could i forget... omg grated beetroot, mint and cut orange (with salt and pepper) makes the best salad ever! I promise you, kids will LOVE it!
For Older Kids
For older kids you could try making this in an oven safe dish with a crumble on top... omg delicious! This porridge is also fine to serve and freeze inside Little Mashies squeeze containers.
