I have done a few posts for Plum-Baby foods in the past when Izebella was a little younger. The problem I had back then was that she just would not eat savoury baby food of any sort. I had to make everything from fresh and even then it was touch and go. However she is now a little older and thankfully less of a fusspot when it comes to food. I am actually lucky that my little princess tot eats almost anything now.
When Plum asked us to try out their new range I thought I may as well give it a go.
Plum baby foods are known for the quite unusual but healthy blends. Many of their food contain an assortment of fruit and vegetables blended together to form different combinations and flavours. Usually foods you probably wouldn’t consider putting together but babies seem to love it.
Plum have just launched the Mighty 4 pouches and they will be in supermarkets very soon.
They are called Mighty 4 because they contain foods from four mighty food groups: fruit, vegetables, dairy and ancient grains. all blended together in one snack size pouch.
Plum baby foods are of course all free from sugars and additives to ensure a mouthful of pure goodness each time.
Izebella is now 15 months and therefore way past the stage of puréed, mashing and blending. She eats what we eat and only needs it chopping a little. She also likes to feed herself. These pouches are designed as snacks and not main meals and they are all yoghurt based suitable from 12 months.
So I decided give the first one a go whilst giving Izzy a light snack of toast and crackers. I received 3 pouches
*Blackberry, quinoa, carrot and Greek style yoghurt
*Sweet potato, blueberry, millet & Greek style yoghurt
*Kale, strawberry, amaranth and Greek style yoghurt.
Izebella pointed one out (one with strawberry) to try out first. I tipped the whole pouch into her bowl and gave her the spoon.
I should probably add that these foods are very brightly coloured due to the natural organic foods used in them. I would advise using a large bib as I know from previous experience of other Plum baby foods they can be a little messy, but that’s the whole fun part of baby feeding.
I was quite skeptical as to whether she would actually eat any with not previously being a fan of baby foods but she actually ate the whole pouch in one go and seemed to enjoy it.
I did try it myself of course and it does taste very unusual. The only way I can describe it is like a vegetable flavour yoghurt with a hint of sweetness if that makes sense?
As she enjoyed the first pouch I am certain she will also enjoy the other flavours too. I guess my baby is over her food fussiness days.
The pouches will be priced at £1.19 (RRP) and will be shortly rolled out in Sainsburys, Asda, Tesco, Boots, Morrisons, Ocado and Waitrose any time from now until April 2014.
