Thanks to Plum Organics for sponsoring my post about tips for baby feeding magic. What if you let baby choose what’s for dinner?

Today Wren and I went to our local Target and picked up a couple Plum Organics for Tots fruit purees to try – strawberry and banana “mish-mash.” Wren loves fruit smoothies so I thought they would be a hit with her – and they were! And truth be told, me too. Usually I add some kind of juice or vanilla yogurt to sweeten a smoothie, but now I’m thinking that a super fresh fruit puree like this obviously doesn’t need any extra sweeteners. And with Halloween around the corner and candy everywhere we look (sigh), we don’t need ANYMORE added sweeteners, thank you very much.
While I didn’t use too many pre-made baby foods with Wren, I bet I will be more likely to take advantage of them with our new little birdie. And I’m pretty sure these will make me feel better about not doing everything from scratch because they’re healthy, tasty, organic, portable, resealable, easy to use. No jars, yessssss. I’m a bit disappointed that they can’t be recycled, but I’m sure the packaging engineers at Plum are working on this, right?!
One thing I love about the product line is the range of flavors, from traditional banana to more interesting blueberry oat & quinoa and spinach, peas & pear. We didn’t shy away from introducing any strong flavors or textures to Wren and this has served us well because she eats almost anything now at two and a half, and is willing to at least try a bit of everything new-to-her that we put in front of her. Food is one of life’s greatest pleasures and adventures for us and we hope to continue to encourage this with our little birdies. I’m sure she’ll go through a pickier stage like most children, but I’m very grateful that hasn’t hit home quite yet!
