Whenever I am given the opportunity to bring my readers a review of products that make parenting easier, I try very hard to make sure I get that information to you.
Fresh Baby, sent me a great product that I think will make things easier to get healthy fruits and vegetables into your toddlers tummies!
The Fresh Baby’s Popsicle Maker, makes buying expensive sugar filled pops a thing of the past and the best part is you can fill these with anything you desire.
I made some baby food puree for David and then I made some fresh berry juice/puree and added the sweet potatoes I had made to the juice and put those in the pop molds. The portions were good and I did not add any sugar or sweetener to the juice mix. I felt with the sweet potatoes and the berry mixture it was sweet enough.
Destini loved these pops, she of course loved that I made them myself and she was able to watch the whole process, and she loved the flavors. She calls them her poppy pops now. It was easy to do as I was already making baby food and adding the veggies was an easy thing to do to get more fiber, vitamins and nutrients into her diet. Anytime I can fill her little belly with healthy things instead of junk, is one less time she is going to ask for something that is not quite so healthy for her.
I loved the serving size of these (3 ounces), and I loved how the mold stood up in the freezer without having to prop it up in any way. I think that you could do juice mixed with water so they are not very strong and have less sugar, you could easily make rehydration solution pops for when they had a sore throat or stomach bug, and I know many mom’s even make breastmilk pops for when their baby’s are teething.
It is a versatile and easy to use product that I think every house with small children should own. We as parents need to take back the control of what is going into the little one’s bodies and make sure they are nourished well. This Fresh Baby’s Popsicle Maker makes a great tool in order to do that.
