What comes to mind when you think of baby food? Mushy and bland perhaps? Not one of my three children actually liked jar baby food. And I can’t say that I blame them! And what about the additives, preservatives and flavorings? No thank you! We usually gave our two oldest whatever we were eating when they were young- as long as it was okay for their little tummies and it was cut into tiny pieces. Now we are doing the same with our third! But what if we are eating something not baby-friendly?
Baby Gourmet is a new company that is changing the baby food market! They offer healthy, organic baby food in combinations that I would actually like to have for dinner! Listen to some of their combinations: Tropical Banana Bliss, Apple Crisp, Vanilla Banana Berry Risotto (yes, I said RISOTTO!), Roasted Squash and Fruit Medley, Juicy Pear and Garden Greens just to name a few!
Who is the woman behind Baby Gourmet?
From the website: Founder Jennifer Broe wanted to feed her babies food that was healthy and tasty, but was disappointed by grocery store options. With a little ingenuity, she started making her own—whipping up baby-friendly batches of tested and much-loved family recipes. The results were so yummy, she enlisted the help of her sister, Jill Vos, and Baby Gourmet was born.
Baby Gourmet food is also:
- No thickeners or fillers
- No added sugar
- No added salt
- BPA-free re-sealable packaging
- USDA, FDA and organic certification
My little girl devoured the Vanilla Banana Berry Risotto. Baby Gourmet also sent us Orchard Apple, Carrot and Prune and Baby’s Sweet Potato Pie and she actually hummed a happy song when she was eating! Of course, we had a family taste testing of each and they are delicious! The list of ingredients are ACTUALLY ingredients-like what you would find in your own kitchen. It’s almost like you spent the day making your own baby food-but you didn’t have to! I will definitely be adding Baby Gourmet to my shopping list!
