If you’re anything like me, those fruit smoothie sachets (Ã la Ella’s Kitchen) have staved off quite a few toddler hunger meltdowns while out and aboutÂ in the past. They’re not exactly cheap though and IÂ oftenÂ thought it would have been great to be able to make your own. Unikia’sÂ Smoothpack Station, Â£19.95, makes that a possibility. It’s a simple but effective idea – you use a blender to whizz up your smoothie, or baby food, in the station, then fix the packs to the nozzles and press down the plunger to fill them. The kit comes with six reusable packs (four 125ml, twoÂ 250ml)Â andÂ two spoons that can attach to packs for baby feeding. The packs are BPA free, fridge and freezer safe and come with special holders to ensure they are effectively cleaned in the dishwasher. We were sent one to try and Alfie really enjoyed making his own. It easy to do and simple to clean, but IÂ would definitely suggest double checkingÂ that the packs are securely fixed to the nozzles before you start plunging,Â or you will end up with smoothie all over your work surface (yup, I speak from experience here).
