I make a hell of a lot of my kid’s food from scratch. I like to know she’s not eating a bunch of unnecessary preservatives and especially added sugar. Why create a sweet tooth if I can help it? Plus… I like cooking. Duh.
That being said, I always have a sachet of baby food in with her day care lunch as an optional extra. It doesn’t have to be refrigerated and is very portable. I throw them in my handbag, send along with her on trips with her dad and grandma, and woe betide me if we’re shopping at the supermarket and we pass the row of sachets without giving her one on the spot… she loves them.
The lovely folk at Ella’s Kitchen recently contacted me and asked if I’d tried their products. And while I’m no stranger to baby food sachets, we really hadn’t tried their brand before. To be honest, I was a little wigged about it being imported, as I have been trying to buy things with less food miles when I can. However, I liked their created-by-a-dad thing, I liked their 100% organic thing, I liked their suitable-for-vegetarians thing. No added salt, sugar or water, no additives, thickeners, artificial nasties… apparently just fruit. or veg. or fruit and veg.
I handed one to Abby to try. She ripped it out of my hand and started sucking for dear life.
She ignored us and kept at it. The pack was gone in about three and a half seconds.
♥ 10 stage 1 meals (2 of each variety)

Disclaimer: I was posted an Ella’s Kitchen smoothie for Abby to try. It was The Red One and as you can see, she liked it. I charged my usual administration fee for running the giveaway. Abby couldn’t care less about my admin fee so she wasn’t influenced, and if you think it influences my opinion, you are a twit. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask: mamavegetable (at) gmail.com, I’m more than happy to help.
