Homemade Watermleon Ice Lollies and more

Here at eco rascals HQ, we know just how much an ice lolly can change a day. Our children associate them as treats and we’ve been learning every trick in the book to keep them healthy yet delicious.

As well as just making children happy, they can also keep us hydrated, help us reduce our waste by using up leftover fruit and veggies and they also help relieve pain from teething.

The lolly recipes below are suitable for children from around one year and up. For smaller children who are just starting out on their baby led weaning journey, we used the little food feeders and would freeze some breastmilk mixed with a fruit or vegetable that they enjoyed.
