4 Ways to Feed your Baby Their Puree

4 Ways to Feed your Baby Their Puree

DEVELOPMENT

NaN MIN

We don’t like eating the same thing every single night, and babies are no different.

Here's What You Need To Know:
  • Mix the contents of your jar together with a bit of water. Pop in a thick metal straw for a “smoothie”.
  • You can add your Yumi single puree or Yumi blend into one of these refrigerator and dishwasher-safe, eco-friendly squeeze pouches.
  • Try your own jar of Yumi or make yourself a yogurt parfait to eat along with your babe.
  • Add your puree to a fillable teether to help ease their gums.

Primp Up the Puree

Are you looking for innovative ways to feed your baby their Yumi, or homemade puree? At times when your baby is uninterested in being fed from a spoon, it’s nice to have a backup plan. These ideas will ensure that your baby gets the nutrients they need. Here are our recommendations for different ways to feed your baby Yumi.

1. The Straw Method

Try this fun twist on a smoothie. Mix the contents of your jar well with a spoon, add a bit of water, and then pop in a bright-colored metal straw in it. We love extra-wide straws, such as the ones used for boba drinks. Though it may take some time for your babe to get used to drinking from a straw, several of our parents use this method when their little one is old enough to wield a spoon but not in the mood at the moment.

2. The Re-Useable Squeeze Pouch Method

Eating from a spoon provides amazing benefits for young kids. Connecting with food visually, learning motor skills, and appreciating the colors of food are all great advantages. However, as parents, we know the ideal solution isn’t always the possible one. Enter squeeze pouches. You can add your Yumi single puree or Yumi blend into one of these refrigerator and dishwasher-safe, eco-friendly squeeze pouches.

3. Eat with Your Babe

Sometimes as parents, we have to revert to the old “monkey see, monkey do” technique. If your babe sees you eating food like theirs, they are more likely to eat their own food. Try your own jar of Yumi (it’s adult-friendly, too!) or make yourself a yogurt parfait to eat along with your babe. Several of our parents order extra as snacks for themselves or older kids in the house. At some point in the not-so-distant future, there are going to be nights when your lil’ one will prefer hangin’ with her friends versus eating dinner with the family and you’re going to miss these moments.

4. Yumi-sicle:

When your little one is teething, it can seem impossible to get them to eat. This is where a fillable teether comes in handy. Your little one will get relief by icing their gums, and they will end up getting valuable nutrients in the process.

Summary

Sometimes, your little one chooses to turn their nose up to the jar. When they become mini Gordon Ramseys, it can be tempting to whip out the CoComelon to make them zone out. That way, you can shove some nutrients into their unsuspecting pie holes. But try to resist the urge to pull the screen out. There are a couple of engaging things you can do to get them to nom-nom away again, without resorting to the Ipad. Presenting the same puree to them in a new way is a good way to start. By turning it into a smoothie, a squeeze pouch, or a popsicle they can enjoy a new experience while filling up their tummies. You can also lead by example, digging into your own Yumi jar, so your baby has a puree pal.
