Summertime is here, and there’s nothing my little ones love more on a hot day than a yummy popsicle. My pineapple, pear and avocado popsicle recipe is the perfect treat when the temperatures are on the rise. They’re healthy and delicious, and they only take a few minutes to prepare. Your little ones are sure to love them as much as mine do!
This recipe is suitable for babies 10-12 months, toddlers and big kids. You can also spoon feed the mixture without freezing for an easy, no-cook stage three baby food meal. Always make sure the consistency of your baby’s food is one he can handle. Before combining foods, make sure your baby has tried each one individually first with no reaction to it.
