I don't make my baby food (except for breast milk!). I tried once, avocado, and Kenzo gagged and spat it out and that was that. Back to the store bought baby food. But have you read the ingredients in the big brands we've grown up hearing about? Gerber, for example, even the "organic" ones, have TONS of ingredients that have no place being in there. Not cool. Thankfully there are a handful of brands out there that keep it real and make me feel a little less guilty (or not guilty at all!!) about feeding them to my baby.
One of those such awesome brands is Happy Family. Launched in 2006 by Shazi (yay!! another momtrepreneur!!), Happy Family has grown quickly in popularity and the number of products, now offering pouches of baby food (from simple first foods to combos to homestyle and hearty meals), baby cereals (some with pre- and probiotics), Greek yogurt, and various snacks such as puffs and rice cakes. Here are some of the goodies I picked up for my lil' guy:
It was our first experience with a pouch. I love the idea for on-the-go eating. I'm not ready to just give the pouch to my little guy cuz I know he'll just squeeze it all over himself, but it'll be a great option as he gets older. What I did instead was squeeze the food directly into the spoon, saving me having to wash a bowl later - hoorah!
Full disclosure, Kenzo has yet to turn away any food he's given, so I wasn't surprised that he slurped this stuff down like a champ. But I gave it a try myself and yummy, I'd eat it! ^_^ Happy baby, happy mommy... Happy Family!
