The Heinz Pouch Range *REVIEW*

This month Bert has been tasting a selection of Heinz pouches. Each fruit pouch is suitable for babies from 4-36 months, and the savoury dinner pouches are suitable from 4 months+ in some flavours and 7 months+ in others. 

Each pouch contains up to two of your baby's 'five a day' fruit/veg portions, and they contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. All sugars that occur in these pouches are just the natural sugars from the fruits, there is none added. 

As a busy mum these pouches are a complete god send. Easy to use on the run, you can feed them to your baby with confidence knowing that there's no nasties inside. It provides complete peace of mind for me to know that if Bert has a 'ready' meal for his dinner,that a savoury jar/Little Kidz dinner and a fruit pouch will be up tp four of his five a day fruit/veg recommendation and all with no added colours, flavours or preservatives! Win!

He eats a much wider variety of flavours when eating from the Heinz selection, as I could never provide the variety of flavours available from their range at home each day. It is important to me that Bert isn't/doesn't become a fussy eater - so I continue to feed him a whole range of foods from fresh dinners I've made from scratch to the convenience of pouches/jars, as well as a whole host of finger foods. When I see something new he hasn't tried yet, I always buy it and see what he thinks - so far he is yet to reject any food I give him - that's my boy! 

Pouch flavours Bert's tried this month:

-Apple, Pear & Banana
-Apple & Strawberry
-Peach, Mango & Banana
-Sunday Chicken Dinner 

There is a huge range of other sweet and savoury flavours available in the Heinz Pouch range - go to Heinz Baby to browse their products and find out more.

Bert has throughly enjoyed all of these pouches - especially the fruit ones (he has a sweet tooth like Mummy!) He really enjoys the fruit pouches mixed with fromage frais or mashed avocado to bulk them out a little and make more of a dessert out of them now that he is older and eating much more. 

He enjoyed the flavour of the Sunday Chicken Dinner pouch, although, as he is now 16 months, I prefer to give him lumpier foods (like the Little Kidz dinners from the Heinz range) as they seem more substantial for my little toddler than the smooth purees do. 

Have you tried the Heinz Pouch range?

What did your little ones make of them?
