Seriously, I love baby food. I mean, not eating it. Well, sometimes. Depends. Fruit purees are yummy.
While I love to make my own baby food, because I know exactly what’s in it, and it’s fresh, I also sometimes need a travel or on-the-go option.
I favor puree pouches with spouts babies can sip from. Like Peter Rabbit Organics healthy, organic snack pouches for busy families! Have you seen these in Starbucks? (One of the FEW restaurants that offer something for baby AND mommy! But I digress…).
My son is adept at getting most of the food out without help. These pouches are handy for a quick meal or snack on the go without the fuss of high chair, spoons, etc. You don’t even have to refrigerate these before using, and you can use part of the pouch and reseal it with the twist on/off cap!
I love the ingredients! So simple. Whatever you see on the front is what’s inside. That’s it! 100% organic fruit and vegetables! Each serving is high in vitamin C, between 70 and 85 calories, 0 fat, and 1.5-2 grams of fiber.Check out the great flavor combos:
- Apple and Peach
- Strawberry and Banana
- Apple and Grape
- Mango, Banana and Orange
- Sweet Potato, Corn and Apple
- Carrot, Squash and Apple
- Pea, Spinach and Apple
It’s so important to get babies to try new foods while they are young. I read that babies often need to be offered a new food fifteen TIMES before they might like the flavor. (of course, many of the sweet foods they like right away!).
Now, my son will NEVER eat spinach when I steam/puree it myself – I think I have maxed out the fifteen tries rule at this point. But he gobbled up the Pea, Spinach and Apple tonight at dinner. I DID squeeze it out of the pouch for him and mixed it with some cooked quinoa flakes to give him some protein. So these pouches are really versatile – mix with oatmeal, yogurt, or small cereal for a chewier meal!
We tried them all out except the Apple and Peach… the flavors come through vividly. These are going to be PERFECT for our upcoming camping trip!
