Baby food Banana trick

April 25th, 2006 at 02:23 pm

I read this trick now that I have my third (I really could have used it for my first two!)

Take a banana, peal only one stripe, use a spoon to scoop out a hole and use it as a 'bowl' to mash up the banana for your baby.

Doesn't work for the first few meals when you might need to thin the banana, but once you are on to fork mash only, scrapping with a spoon works even better and no bowl to wash! (once the baby is done hand the rest of the banana over to an older eater.)

    I used to mash the whole banana and then freeze the leftovers in an ice cube tray, then transfer them to a baggy when frozen. Then I'd thaw out one or two cubes as needed. It took very little time for them to thaw, about ten minutes I think, or a few seconds zapped in the micro, and the leftovers didn't turn brown. This would be good if you didn't have anyone else who wanted to eat the rest of the banana right away to keep it from turning brown.
