How long does banana keep in the freezer?
While any frozen fruit is bound to keep for a longer window of time than when left out or stored in the fridge, there are still timetables to be aware of– even down to the peel! Unpeeled bananas can keep for up to 6 months, while peeled/sliced bananas are good for 2-3 months. This means you can make these tasty baby popsicles all summer long without worrying about this main ingredient spoiling. If baby enjoys these baby fruit popsicles, go ahead and buy a bunch or two of bananas to keep in the freezer all season long.
Is mango good for babies?
Absolutely. Once a baby passes the 6-month mark and is ready for solids, parents can start implementing mangoes into their baby’s diet– and these butternut squash mango banana popsicles are the perfect way to start! Packed with vitamins like A, C, and K, as well as potassium and healthy sugars, mangoes help support a growing baby’s vision, digestion, skin, and immunity. Banana popsicles for baby get a whole lot more interesting when you add fruits like mango to the mix– and the health benefits are as great as they are delicious.
Do babies experience brain freeze?
Most definitely, and parents should make sure to feed these baby popsicles to their little ones with enough pacing to make sure they avoid it! Babies and children are more sensitive to all sorts of pain and discomfort, and brain freeze is no exception. While delicious, these butternut squash mango banana popsicles are definitely prone to causing brain freeze when eaten too quickly– and with how good they taste, eating them too fast is easy! Make sure your little one takes their time when eating this sweet treat this summer.
