My soon-to-be 7 month old Xander is absolutely loving the world of solid foods. He is probably the best eater I have ever seen! My other 2 children made quite the mess when they were his age, and would often fuss and resist new foods. To this day, my toddler doesn't enjoy eating her fruits unless they're cleverly disguised or mixed together with other foods. But not my Xander. He loves pretty much anything I give him, and happily gobbles it all up. What I put into his mouth somehow manages to stay in his mouth, which makes clean up an absolute breeze!
But since my little man is so very enthusiastic about trying and enjoying new foods, I want to be sure I am giving him nothing but the best nutrition possible. After all, he is a growing boy! With so many options available in the baby food aisle, it can be a daunting task deciding which foods are best for baby. So many commercially prepared baby foods contain additives and preservatives that offer very little nutrition for baby. Not to mention, who knows what pesticides were used in the cultivation of the fruits and veggies used to make these baby foods and how much of those residual chemicals make their way into the food itself? I often make my own baby foods using fresh, organic fruits and vegetables just to avoid this very concern, but I also like to keep a supply of organic, ready to eat baby foods on hand for when we're on the go or just short on time.
That's why I was so excited to get the opportunity to review Baby Gourmet Organic Baby Foods! These wonderful, thoughtfully prepared baby foods come in convenient pouches and offer a wide variety of multi-dimensional flavors to stimulate baby's taste buds while offering the wholesome goodness and nutrition that organic fruits and vegetables can provide. With exciting flavors like Juicy Pear and Garden Greens, Apple Sweet Potato Berry Swirl, and Vanilla, Banana, Berry Risotto, baby is in for a gourmet experience unlike any other. Think of it as 5 Star Dining for babies!
Not only does Baby Gourmet offer fun, interesting flavor combinations that are sure to please even the most discriminating of palates, all of their wonderful products are completely organic. There are absolutely no preservatives, fillers, or added sugar or salt in Baby Gourmet's meals, and their packaging is BPA-free and has a whopping 15 month shelf life! So when choosing Baby Gourmet, you can be confident that all your baby is getting is fresh, juicy fruits and vegetables, whipped into delightful kid-pleasing concoctions that are delicious, nutritious, and pure. It just doesn't get much better than that!
Baby Gourmet has definitely been a hit with my babies. Even my 19 month old, who does not like fruits. She is mostly on table food now, but I decided to try some of the Stage 3 Baby Gourmet pouches with her since Xander is not quite old enough for them yet. She absolutely loved the Vanilla, Banana, Berry Risotto, and ate every last bit of it without putting up the slightest fuss! She also really enjoyed the Old Fashioned Apple Crisp, which tastes a lot like freshly baked apple pie, complete with flavors like butter and cinnamon! Yum! My youngest, Xander, also loved Baby Gourmet. He especially enjoyed the Juicy Pear and Garden Greens and the Harvest Pear, Pumpkin and Banana flavors. Both of my babies' eyes lit up when they tasted these wonderful flavor combinations, and they happily gobbles down these foods. Even my fruit-hating Sophia! I would say that Baby Gourmet knows exactly how to convince even the pickiest of eaters to love their fruits and vegetables. They obviously put a lot of love and culinary knowledge into the making of their products, and it shows!
I even tasted these foods just to get a more accurate description of their flavors, and I was blown away by the fresh, distinct flavors found in these wonderful little pouches. The flavor combinations are absolutely ingenious and each and every element works together beautifully to create a taste sensation unlike anything I have ever seen in baby foods before. Many baby foods tend to be very one-noted, but this is not the case at all with Baby Gourmet. Goodbye dull, bland and boring! Baby Gourmet's fantastic flavors taste like they were prepared by a skilled chef in a fancy restaurant and then pureed to accommodate the tiniest of taste buds. These wonderful organic baby foods really are a special treat!
My only complaint is that there aren't any flavors that include proteins like chicken or beef. I think a wonderful Chicken Florentine or a hearty Beef, Tomato, Eggplant variety would be fantastic! These are foods I prepare myself for my babies, and they seem to absolutely love them. But overall, I was extremely impressed by the superior quality and flavor of Baby Gourmet baby foods. These are absolutely fantastic, and my babies loved them! I was so sad when we ran out! Guess I know what's on my shopping list:Baby Gourmet!
I also love that these pouches are super portable, and are great while on the go. No need to carry around clunky jarred foods. These pouches are conveniently sized and take up very little room in the diaper bag. I can carry an assortment of these wonderful, nutritious foods any time we'll be away. Since Baby Gourmet pouches are resealable, I don't have to worry about messes, either!
When feeding my children Baby Gourmet, I am giving them nothing but the best...Best flavor, best variety, and since these foods are completely organic, I don't have to worry about what goes into my babies' little tummies. Finally, organic baby food that isn't bland! These pouches truly offer something delightfully unexpected in the often bland world of baby food: Foods that are flavorful, vitamin-rich and anything but boring!Baby Gourmet gets an A++ from this satisfied Mama!
