Bert just loves his food. I'm so lucky that he's such a good eater, and genuinely seems to have a love for a huge variety of foods (I wonder where he gets it from??) From the very beginning of his weaning journey he's eaten a mixture of fresh homemade foods, and shop-bought baby specific foods. I'm realistic about the way we eat as a family, and know that eating fresh homemade food 100% of the time is unrealistic - sometimes we need something fast, and that is where ready made baby foods have been a godsend for us.
We've tried loads of brands over the past year, and Bert hasn't rejected any - but for my own peace of mind I like to choose baby foods that come from companies I know and trust, who have high standards in terms of what goes into their foods, and can provide Bert with a large variety of interesting flavours to help him develop his culinary tastes. Heinz for baby are constantly coming up with new and exciting foods for babies, and we've been lucky enough to road test some jars from their newest range.
Mum's Own range from Heinz contains over 30 different recipes, all inspired by mums' home cooked hits- for mums, by mums - including two of their latest recipes created this year: 'Carrot and Sweet Potato Mash' and 'Vegetable and Chicken Curry'. The jars are perfectly balanced nutritious meals to give your little ones when time is of the essence, but still have all the great taste of a homemade recipe.
Bert's been tasting a selection of this new range, and boy does he love them! He's wolfed down every single jar with no fuss, and as a mum, I can't really ask for better than that!
Jars we've tried:
- Vegetable & Chicken Hotpot
- Creamy Chicken Korma
- Beef, Tomato & Mash
- Fruity Chicken & Rice
- Cheesy Tomato Pasta Stars
All the above jars were from the Heinz Baby 7 months + range, although Heinz Baby produces foods suitable for children aged from 4 months right up to 2 years!
My cheeky boy eating his dinners with no fuss, oh, and even the cat was pleased with our delivery from Heinz, she does love a wicker hamper!
The jars we've been testing: whole pieces of ingredient obvious within the food, unlike some other branded 'mush' foods we've tried which are unidentifiable.
The proof of the pudding really is in the eating, and the fact that Bert has eaten all of every single jar without any messing around is really all the information I need. He likes them, and for that reason alone, I'd definitely pick them up again in my food shop.
What Heinz Say About Their Jars:
For more information you can head over to the Heinz Baby website where they have tons of info about their products, cooking methods, weaning advice and even some great recipes for you to try cooking at home.
There's been lots of happy dinner times at The Bishop household of late, thanks to Heinz - so why not give them a try with your little one and see if they love the taste as much as Bert does.
Bye for now
Lucy & Bert
