Is your baby ready to eat solids? Or, maybe you have a picky toddler who eats very few vegetables and fruits? Have you noticed the overwhelming variety of baby foods available? Have you wanted to make your own baby food, but just don’t have the time (or equipment)? While I love my Baby Brezza, and it is so simple to use, I just don’t always have the time (or ingredients) to create fresh meals for MD. But, I have been a bit disappointed with the variety of Organic baby food products available at my grocery store from the “regular” companies (like Gerber and Earth’s Best). Recently, though, I was sent some products by Baby Gourmet to try (thank you Baby Gourmet for the sample pack) and my whole life has changed!
When Baby Gourmet’s founder Jennifer Broe’s daughter was six months old, she attempted solid foods for the first time. To her disappointment, she was not impressed by the typical baby food selections. Like me, she struggled with giving her child those disgusting greyish green, stinky green beans. She wanted to give her child something that was healthy and flavorful. So, she started creating her own baby foods. Then her friends’ babies tried the foods, and she went on to sell them on the weekends at farmer’s markets. Now, she runs Baby Gourmet. Every batch is taste-tested prior to packaging, and if it does not meet Jennifer’s high standards, then it is thrown away!
I have to say, I am a purist when it comes to eating…I like my foods separate. My older son eats his foods on a sectioned plate because he doesn’t like separate foods touching. So, it’s difficult for me to be creative with flavors. But, now I don’t have to do it alone! Baby Gourmet offers wonderful mixtures of textures and flavors (I tried them, and they were absolutely amazing…maybe I’ll invest in them when I’m old and can no longer eat regular food). For example, yesterday MD (and I) tried the Orchard Apple, Carrot and Prune. Neither one of us wrinkled our noses! Today he had Baby’s Sweet Potato Pie – it was gone and he was looking for more! Other wonderful flavors include: Juicy Pear and Garden Greens; Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp; Harvest Pear, Pumpkin, and Banana; and many more!
All of the products are made using USDA Organic fruits and vegetables. There are no fillers or thickeners. They are all gluten-free, unsweetened, and nut-free. The re-sealable pouches are BPA free and labeled clearly with Stage 1 (6 months+), Stage 2 (7 months+), and Stage 3 (8 months+). Your child can feed himself directly from the pouch, or you can squirt the food into a bowl.
I have tried a ton of different baby food products for CW and MD, and Baby Gourmet offers the most variety of flavors and textures, with 100% organic produce! Baby Gourmet is available in most grocery stores and on Amazon.com. Try it today!
