Homemade Popsicle Fun

Popsicles can be a fun way for our littles to enjoy their favorite fruits and veggies in a new and exciting way. Not to mention a great way to cool down after a long day outdoors!

Summer is here, which means long days outdoors in the hot hot sun! What better way to end a hot summer day than with a yummy popsicle!? From little ones trying new fruits and veggies to seasoned toddlers, we’ve made a quick how to guide to get you started!

Lets start with some quick tips!

  • Always be aware of possible allergies.
    • If you are starting to introduce solids to baby, keep in mind to start with fruits and veggies baby has already tried.
  • Popsicles aren’t just for fun!
    • They can be a great pain reliever on babies gums when teething.
    • When your little one is under the weather, a popsicle can be an additional source of fluids if they are having trouble at the breast or bottle!
  • Large chunks of frozen fruit or veggies can be a choking hazard, so blend until completely smooth.
  • Place a cupcake liner underneath the popsicle for catching popsicle drip!
  • Have fun!
