UPDATE from Coupons & Freebies Mom: We shared a guest post from a reader yesterday about DIY Baby Food Pouches. We are removing the content from the DIY Organic Baby Food Pouches guest post based on a comment we received from a reader. Please feel free to research this issue further. Here is a portion of the comment we received:

I run a commercial kitchen where we manufacture baby food. I am all for homemade baby food but this is a very dangerous recommendation. The pouches are NOT meant for reuse! In fact, I have spoken many times with the people who manufacture the pouches. Even they with their high levels of sanitation and pasteurization techniques they have trouble keeping salmonella and other food borne bacterium out of their pouches. There have been recalls from most of the pouch companies. You can google Plum organics recall. This is a dangerous practice and should not be done at home. If a baby gets food poisoning it is deadly. They do not get sick like we do. They end up in the hospital. Please do not recommend this unsafe practice to other parents. It is a deadly accident waiting to happen and I’m really not overstating the direness of this situation.

I realize the pouches are expensive. Buy some ice cube trays and freeze your baby food. It isn’t as convenient as pouches. but it will ensure that babies don’t get very sick.

    I saw this post and marked it to come back later and read (although it is now gone.) I was a little concerned about reusing the pouches, too. BUT I have a Sili Squeeze that I fill for my toddler and it’s made to be reusable! Maybe that would work for other people looking for something similar.

    I’d love to see the recipes/combos that were mentioned in that guest post since I didn’t get to copy them down yet.

    Here is the recipe from our guest poster: Combine about 2 pounds of organic pears (skin on, seeds out), 1/2 pound of organic baby spinach, 1 bag of frozen organic mango chunks (thawed), 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1/4 cup milled chia seeds (if you buy them whole, just stick them in a coffee grinder until they resemble graham cracker crumbs) in a blender. Turn the blender on medium-high. Slowly add organic apple juice to get the contents mixing. Add more apple juice if the texture seems too thick.
