Make your own Food and Juice for Baby Alive Dolls – For Just Pennies!

Baby Alive dolls are very popular with the preschool set.  If you have priced the Baby Alive food and juice packs…well, you see why I set out to find a cheap substitute!  The Baby Alive Doll Food and Diapers are pretty costly.  Especially when my daughter can go through them fast! You can also use Preemie Diapers at a much lower cost as well.

Make the food and juice yourself!  This works with other baby dolls that eat and drink, also.

To make the Baby Alive Food, mix together:

  • 3 Tablespoons of baking soda, 3 Tablespoons of plain tap water, 1/4 tsp cornstarch and 1-3 drops of food coloring.  Use yellow for bananas, green for green beans, etc.

To make the Baby Alive Juice:

  • Simply mix together 1 cup plain tap water, 1/2 tsp cornstarch and 2-3 drops food coloring.

ALSO here are some alternative ideas from readers!  Thank you!  

  • “My daughter colors little piece of napkins with markers and mixes in water for juice.”
  • “For food got a cheap box of baby cereal and add the juice for the flavor she wants for it.”

How easy and frugal is that???  Kids like helping make the food and juice, with adult supervision of course.  Unless you trust a toddler with food color, in which case, good luck and send pics of the mess!  

Enjoy this frugal tip!
