So as you may know. Jack is now 6 months so we have started weaning him. We’re going with a mix of baby led weaning and purée fed. It worked with Harry so we’re going with it again. If Jack prefers one way to the other we will go with that.
Heavenly Tasty kindly sent us some lovely items to review with Jack. We were sent
- Mango, Apple and Banana Coconut Squishies
- Strawberry, Apple and Banana Coconut Squishies
- Spinach Apple and Kale Wafer Wisps
- Pumpkin and Banana Wafer Wisps
It’s safe to say the Wafer Wisps were a hit, and not just with Jack but also with Harry 🙂
So why organic? This is what Heavenly Tasty say
To put it simply, organic food is packed with nutrients. Your baby’s digestive system is more efficient at absorbing food to enable the nutrients to be used up quickly to meet the demands of their fast developing bodies. Recent research has shown that switching to organic crop consumption is the equivalent to eating one or two additional portions of fruit or vegetables per day.*
Personally I’ve always bought my children organic snacks because… well everyone knows it’s better don’t they? But now I’ve read this, I am even more pleased I buy organic and feel happier in the fact I do. I think if I wasn’t already, I would switch.
The squishies I put in a bowl and spoon fed jack because I don’t think he’s old enough to hold them yet. But he didn’t complain and wolfed down half a pouch in no time!
But half a pouch was not enough and he demanded the other half and then wolfed that down just as fast. And we had hardly any mess!
I know it sounds like I have to say, but Jack really has loved these and now I take a pouch out with me every time we leave the house because I know it’s the one thing he will definitely eat. He’s tried both the mango and the strawberry pouches and he loves both equally.
They get a massive thumbs up from me and if you’re just starting weaning or in full swing, I highly recommend you check them out 🙂
