Pear and Apple Quinoa

For those of you that have young children, you are very familiar with the baby food in squeeze pouches. Since my daughters struggled with eating, we went through a lot of them. They travel really well and it’s easy for kids to eat. However, they add up in price pretty fast and you are left with trash to throw away. I have been looking for a refillable squeeze pouch for a while now. Then I found out about a company called Little Green Pouch. They make easy to use refillable feeding pouches.

I knew when I first got the samples that I wanted to make a recipe to use in them. So I did a twist on my Crock Pot Applesauce.

This is a healthy recipe perfect for babies on soft solids as well as toddlers. My husband and I even enjoyed it and put in in our overnight oats. Great flavors!

Pear and Apple Quinoa

Prep Time 30 min Cook Time 4 hr

A baby food you would be happy to serve to your child and eat yourself.



  1. Throw all the ingredients except the quinoa in the  crock pot .
  2. Cook on high for about 3-4 hours. Once the apples and pears are soft and somewhat broken down, turn off the crock pot and let cool.
  3. Once cooled, add the quinoa and blend with an  immersion blender . If you don’t have an immersion blender , you can transfer mixture to a  blender and blend well.


Recipe Notes

If you decide to use a blender, you may need to blend the mixture in 2 batches. It can be refrigerated for a few weeks and frozen for even longer. Enjoy!
