My daughter is a notoriously bad eater. We have struggled with her eating for months, and have tried a seemingly endless collection of fruits, vegetables, grains, beans and even sweets to entice her to no avail. Lately, we noticed she was a little more interested in chewing on things, so we thought we would try one of those pouch-style baby foods. I opened it up, squeezed a little onto a spoon and…VOILA! She actually ate it!!
What was this tasty new treat? Juicy Pears and Garden Greens from Baby Gourmet. Not only was I thrilled she was eating, but I was also glad to see that her meal of choice was all organic, with no added sugars, salt, thickeners or fillers in BPA-free packaging. Could it get any better?
It can! This was by far the best-tasting packaged baby food I have ever had. I am a big proponent of making baby food at home, but it is not always an option. We have been using some jarred foods, and I can barely stomach the smell and taste of them; many of the foods we have tried are barely recognizable without reading the label first. However, when I snuck a little taste from my daughter’s Baby Gourmet pouch, I was impressed with how fresh it tasted – I’m not even ashamed to say I took a second taste! We tried a few other flavors – Roasted Squash and Fruit Medley, Baby’s Sweet Potato Pie and Old Fashioned Apple Crisp – and they were all just as delicious.
