I have tried to find creative ways to sneak fruit to my picky daughter. I have mixed applesauce in a number of dishes, added banana to some of her meals, all mushed up and unrecognizable, and I have even started incorporating fruit into more savory dishes in order to fool her. (By the way, chicken breasts grilled with a blackberry balsamic glaze and topped with a simple blackberry compote is FANTASTIC!)
That's why I was so excited to get the opportunity to review Buddy Fruits. I have seen these and other to-go fruit pouches in the store before, but have always been a little skeptical about whether or not Sophie would enjoy them. I have reviewed similar pouches from another company, and had success with a couple of the flavor combinations. With Sophie, it's really hit or miss. She KNOWS what she likes! Luckily, Xander is now 6 months old and eating solids now, too. He isn't nearly as picky as his older sister, and will happily inhale anything I give him.

So when my Buddy Fruits assortment arrived, I couldn't wait to try them out on my babies! I knew Xander would like Buddy Fruits, because at 6 months old, he seems to like everything. He's probably the best beginning eater I have ever seen! Minimal mess, minimal fighting, and he opens his mouth and swallows his food beautifully. So it's no surprise that Xander loved his Buddy Fruits fruit pouches!
Here's a video of Sophie eating...or should I say playing with....her Buddy Fruits!
