Family days out and everyday tasks shouldn’t be a worry during your weaning journey. Our top tips for weaning on the go will make bringing healthy, home-cooked baby food and purées on the move much easier. With the right equipment and some tasty recipe ideas, weaning while out and about could not be simpler!
The Right Equipment
Having the right weaning equipment on hand will set you up for a successful weaning journey at home and on the go. Our Weaning Sets and Food Flasks are perfect to portion and store homemade food for your weaning baby, and the rest of your family can use them too! For a baby up to 8 months simply store food in your 1oz, 2oz or 3oz portion pot and place it in our Food Flask to keep it warm or cold for up to 6 hours on the go. For an older baby store food directly in the flask.
Homemade is Best
By packing some homemade purées, finger foods and healthy snacks on the go, you can be sure that you are always offering the best quality food to your weaning baby. When you are prepared with foods you know your baby will enjoy, you won’t be tempted to use the jars of processed baby foods that you find in many shops and supermarkets! Try some Vegetable Muffins with this healthy homemade Red Pepper Hummus for a tasty weaning meal on the go.
Batch cooking is probably the best way to be sure that you can always offer a healthy meal or snack on the go. Prepare meals, snacks, finger foods and dips in batches to freeze or store so you can grab them on the way out the door, especially in a hurry! Our Baked Falafels or Cauliflower and Cheese Bites are a great finger food to pack as a lunch. Prepare in advance and freeze, remove the night before from the freezer and heat up and store in your flask before you head out.
When you are on the go with your baby, it can be a little harder to maintain the portion sizes and textures that suit your baby’s stage. Take the stress out of portioning on the go by preparing some homemade food in advance and storing it in correct portion size. Our Starter Weaning set has all the sizes you need from 4m to 12m. Try our Chicken, Green Bean and Avocado Puree it's the perfect balanced weaning meal to take while out and about.
So above all head out and enjoy the time with your baby and equally, know that you are still sticking to a heathy eating routine.
