Thanks to Plum Organics for sponsoring my post about tips for baby feeding magic. What if you let baby choose what’s for dinner? Check out their cute “Quest for Yum!” video and see what happens!
When Bella was ready for solid food, I felt totally confident in feeding her at home. I made her meals myself, and froze them into little cubes for later. What I stressed out about was traveling with her food. How would I carry all the glass jars? What if they broke? Would I have to take spoons everywhere? How on earth would this all happen? A second diaper bag?
I stumbled across Plum Organics early on – Bella was about 8 months old and had been on solids for around 2. We were starting to take longer trips that required her to eat midway. Plum offered these pouches – BPA free and all organic. I loved that they came in muplitple and one veggie/fruit ones – because some of the foods she hadn’t tried yet.
I remember taking Bella to lunch at around 10 months, and bringing several pouches with me for her. Because they have a screw off (recyclable) cap and are slender and flexible, I could throw 2-3 in my purse and go. No mess, no spoons, no glass jars banging around.
The waitress paused to watch Bella eat one out of the top tube, and said in amazement, “Is that baby food?” I loved explaining how they worked and then getting the same answer from nearly everyone who asked about them, “I wish they’d had those when my kids were little!”
We still use Plum. In fact, right now I’m typing from back east and Bella is with me. Upstairs in my purse and her backpack are about 10-15 pouches I brought with me for the plane, morning when she wakes up insanely hungry, and snacks. Her favorite right now are the fruit.
Plum Organics really did make the first year of my life so much easier with Bella. I knew she was getting wholesome, organic food on the go. Now I love that she gets an extra serving of fruit and/or vegetables instead of me plying her with crackers or racking my brain trying to figure out what to give her that won’t make a mess in a small space.
Like a window plane seat with 2 people next to you that give the evil eye each time your child moves. That is the best time to bust those things out.
