As we enter the cooler fall and winter months (or if you have a picky eater on your hands), you may want to serve your baby’s food warm for some meals. Not to fear. Even though we’re cold-pressed and kept in the fridge, warming our organic blends is easy!
To warm up your little one’s food, simply place the pouch in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. Remove the pouch and be sure to shake it well. Always test the food to make sure it is temperature appropriate before feeding it to your baby. We also recommend serving warmed food from a bowl with a spoon to prevent any hot spots. These Choomee Dip’n Spoons are perfect for little ones because the soft flat head allows for natural latching instinct and the firm handle is small but still comfortable for us parents.
If your baby isn’t ready to eat an entire pouch of food yet, you can just warm up a portion of the pouch. Pour the desired amount of food into a bowl then place that bowl into a slightly larger bowl of warm water. After a few minutes, your food will be warm and ready to serve (don’t forget to stir well to ensure an even temperature). As for the unused portion of food, you can save it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Why not just zap it, you ask? Our pouches are not microwavable. We do not recommend microwaving our pouches as this may create new compounds that our bodies cannot recognize and it may also heat the food unevenly.
We hope these simple steps will help when your little one wants a warmer option!
