Children's vegetable puree: edible or inedible?

/ All materials

GOST not Decree

The tasting of vegetable puree was conducted by specialists who have devoted many years to the development of baby food. Their opinion can be trusted. But we want to warn you: it is impossible to guarantee that the child will like the same puree as the experts (rather, you should rely on your own taste). Much more important is compliance with safety requirements. And most of the samples we tested meet the standards. Most, but not all. nine0003

Let's deal with the quality

Andrey Mosov, head of the expert department of NP Roskontrol, doctor:

“Such characteristics as sweetness, bitterness or “unexpressed taste” are subjective. Parents most often pay attention to the water content of the product. The presence of water in the composition of vegetable puree is not bad for the first feeding. You just need to understand that water is a cheaper raw material than a pumpkin.”

Irina Konokhova, leading expert of NP Roskontrol, doctor:

“Indeed, in most of the tested vegetable purees, the mass fraction of chlorides (i.e. salt) is 0. 2%, and in the Babushkino Lukoshko, Heinz and Semper purees it is 0.3%. Perhaps this is due to the higher natural content of sodium chloride in the feedstock, although it cannot be ruled out that salt was added. However, this intake of salt with complementary foods is acceptable, given the physiological need for sodium in children. The permissible mass fraction of chlorides in children's vegetable puree is 0.6%, and this figure is not exceeded in the tested samples. nine0016

How about sterility?

Let's start with the main thing: all samples meet the requirements of industrial sterility. Pesticides were not found in any of the samples, and all samples meet the standards in terms of nitrate content.

In addition, the puree was checked for 5-hydroxymethyl furfural content . It was not found in any of the samples.

All preservatives and sweeteners are prohibited in baby food. We checked the puree for the presence of sorbate, benzoate, sulfur dioxide (these are preservatives) and determined the mass concentration of sweeteners. Parents can be calm: no preservatives or sweeteners were found in the samples. nine0003

One in the jar, another on the label

Andrey Mosov, head of the expert department of NP Roskontrol, doctor:

in pumpkin puree should be 3.6% (in boiled pumpkin - 4.6%).

Summing up and drawing conclusions

Roskontrol experts noted that the manufacturer of puree Semper misleads the consumer about the presence of sugar in the composition. A mark "Bebivita" does not correspond to the actual product name - it is indicated in small print on the back of the label ("Complementary food product - mashed pumpkin and potatoes").

Puree “Spelyonok” has the inscription “fortified with vitamin C” illegally placed: the actual mass fraction of ascorbic acid in this sample is four times less than indicated in the label. Plus, on all samples, except for Bebivita puree, information about the nutritional value in terms of carbohydrate content is distorted. nine0003

home scrub in baby food jars

The child has grown up, eats with everyone at the same table, and there is no need to buy baby food for him in jars. During the time you accustomed him to various tastes, a huge amount of containers for juices and purees accumulated. Where to put jars of baby food? offers to use our ideas. nine0003

Candle holders from jars

The simplest idea that most often comes to mind is to make candle holders. Place colored sand, beautiful pebbles, decorative glass pebbles on the bottom and light tea candles.

DIY candle holders

Baby food jars can be decorated to fit any theme. In this photo, the candlestick is made in a marine style. Paint the jar with paint. Apply a colorless varnish around the bottom and, while the varnish is still wet, sprinkle sand on it. Tie the neck of the baby food jar with pretty ribbon or twine.

Place crumbled shortbread cookies on the bottom, then curd cheese, decorate with berries from cherry jam on top. We think your kids will definitely like this dessert to take away. nine0003

Healthy food to go

It's always nice to start every morning with a healthy breakfast, like this smoothie. Can't have breakfast? Close the lid and take it with you.

Coin box

What do you think of the change collection idea? How often do you find her at home in various places? Collect and put it in such a cute piggy bank.

In truth, a penny saves a ruble. By giving a second life to baby food jars, you save on buying accessories and items that you can easily make yourself. To do this, you just need a little time and imagination. Dare, and you will succeed!

Women's magazines and Internet sites often give advice on how to clean the house and throw away rubbish. Of course, we agree with them, but there is a doubt: what if the authors are not artists, and do not see the potential of simple things, and do not know how to turn a piece of fabric into a flower, and see a stained-glass window in a white sheet of paper? What to say about empty baby food jars! nine0339

The only concern for a home designer is: is there enough room for a creative idea? Do you have the right materials and decor?

And we have enough ideas, because tin cans can be turned into single useful objects or more complex decorative structures.

For making beautiful storage containers one can is enough.

You will also need white or matching acrylic paint, pieces of lace, cord, dry flowers and seeds, various decorations and glue, hot or instant. nine0003

Let's paint the jar and wait for the paint to dry. Glue lace to the upper edge from the outside. Let's lay out the decor on the table and decide in what order we will stick it. In this case, the setting time of the adhesive must be taken into account.

Very beautiful jars decorated in decoupage technique.

For the shabby chic style you will need white, pink, peach, blue delicate colors and pictures for decoupage (napkins, thin fabric) with small flowers or small bouquets. You can “decoupage” not only a jar, but also a blank, previously pasted over in a spiral with twine, but this option will require experience and skill. nine0062

If you decorate 6 jars using this technique, you will get an excellent bathroom organizer.

For the base, we will select a piece of plywood or drywall with a thickness of at least 1 cm, 45x60 cm in size, prepare acrylic paints (white will be needed most of all, for a primer), brushes, a roller, pictures, braid (tape), decor and a glue gun with rods.

Paint the jars with white acrylic and leave to dry. With small sharp scissors, we cut out flowers or other pictures, which, after the paint dries, we glue on the jars. We outline the contours of the pictures with a thin brush, you can add additional patterns in the form of curls, hearts, dots. nine0003

After the previous layers and objects have dried, glue small decor, decorate the edge with decorative tape, cord.

Let's paint the rectangular base with acrylic paint of the same color as the cans, white in our example, and make the end part pink.

To attach the finished cells to the plywood base, and the base to the wall, you will need a drill, screws and strong male hands. Our task is to pre-determine a place on the wall where the organizer needs to be hung. It is convenient to place towels, a hair dryer and other necessary items in the cells. nine0062

cans can be made into sectional storage skeins of yarn, container for bags, plastic spoons and forks for a picnic, pencil holder , scissors and other stationery on the desktop, scarf organizer on the wardrobe shelf, soap container and shampoo in the bathroom.

We choose the way of decoration depending on our imagination. turn banks into flower pots is as easy as shelling pears - we punch holes in the bottom, paint the surface in the desired color, plant flowers. Using a hook or wire, we hang the plants on the wall, fence. nine0062

Advanced craftsmen will cope with mosaic decoration of containers . For the mosaic, we will select glass pebbles (available in the garden-garden departments of household supermarkets), buttons, a mix of the remains of small beads and beads, pieces of ceramic tiles or porcelain, as well as a set of “unnecessary” items from a chest of drawers in the country.

If the mosaic decor is covered with gold or bronze acrylic paint, you get a real masterpiece. To give the coating a touch of antiquity, first cover the base with black paint, then decorate the protruding parts with a bronze tint. nine0003

Garden candlestick we will make by perforating the walls of the can, outside we will paint the surface to our liking. In such a container, you can put not only candles, but also mount lamps, but for this you need to observe safety when working with electricity.

Useful cans and for children's games : we will make a sorter toy out of them so that the child can pick up objects under the corresponding holes and throw them into a jar (the edges must be processed so as not to get hurt!), a garage for small cars, a train, stilts, funny little men. nine0003

There is a place for jars in the country: as a stand for dishes, containers for bulk products and spices. We cut the twigs with pruners, glue them to the jar, tie them with twine - we get a chic eco-vase for wild flowers. Still have jars left? Let's make a bird feeder and a decorative bee so that no one picks our cherries in the garden.

Now we are convinced that the packaging of infant formula not only has a second useful life, but also keeps the environment clean.

14. Vases: Fill the bottom of a clean, dry can with acrylic paint (approximately 5 cm), turn the can upside down and slowly rotate it (the paint should spread evenly over the entire inside of the can). Attention! It is impossible to pour water into such jars, this is a purely decorative element.

15. Paint can with spray paint, looks no worse than acrylic.

In every family with small children, there are at least a few jars left after eating baby food. Don't rush to throw them away. With a little imagination, you can make a lot of interesting things out of this compact container. nine0062 Jars must be thoroughly washed and dried before use. After that, you can decorate them as you wish, using various materials.

Here is a selection of creative baby food jar ideas that you can use to make unique, original and useful household items.

Handy spice jars.
Agree that storing spices in retail packaging is not the best solution. Making a convenient container for spices from jars is not difficult. Just peel off the labels and instead stick labels with the designation of the contents. You can go even simpler and sign the lids. Those who love creative solutions can decorate the jars to their taste with the help of ribbons, painting or decoupage. nine0003

Gift box for sweets.
Decorate the jars to your taste (eg with coarse ropes and colored cloth) and get a beautiful gift box. Pour colored dragees or small sweets into the container - an unusual surprise for the sweet tooth is ready.

Jars can also be used for jam, honey or marmalade. A great way to beautifully present homemade sweets to friends and family. Attach small paper cards to the jars, on which you can write information about the contents or a sincere wish. Decorate mugs with beautiful napkins and ribbons. nine0003

Paint the jars in different colors and, when the paint dries well, place pencils and felt-tip pens in them.
Jars can also be used for other office supplies.

Needle beds.
Pour colored buttons into the jars, and glue homemade pads made of foam rubber covered with colored fabric on the lids. The original is sure to come in handy for those who are fond of needlework. nine0003

Christmas decorations.
To make an analogue of a snow globe, you need to fill the jar with small sparkles, beads, artificial snow or crushed foam and pour water. Add 1 tablespoon of glycerin to make our "snowflakes" swirl with movement. You can take more glycerin, then the particles will float in the water more slowly. As a decor, use any New Year's toy - it must be glued to the lid.

Flower vases.
Wonderful vases for small short bouquets are obtained by simply placing flowers in jars. You can dream up a little and add decor compositions.

Beautifully decorated jars can be wonderful candle holders that will decorate any occasion. At the bottom of the jar you need to pour sand, and place a small tea candle on top. The design depends on your imagination and skills: it can be as simple as possible or more inventive. nine0003

Hairpins, buttons, sewing accessories, carnations and other household items are very conveniently stored in baby food jars. Jars can be glued with lids to the shelf - then they will definitely not be lost and will always be in sight.
