I had come across Ella’s Kitchen baby food online and recently found it carried at Whole Foods. It isn’t the cheapest (on sale it is $1 for a 3.5 ounce pouch) but is still reasonably priced. The pouches only need a spoon and you are ready to feed your trail baby, making these the easiest Stage 1 food we have come across so far. No mess, no fuss (well maybe except for what is all over the babies face…..) Simply screw off the cap and squeeze the food onto your spoon – no dipping required.
The flavors are also quite interesting. The company is UK based so you see flavor choices you don’t see here! We picked up a Potatoes Pumpkin Apples & Blueberries to try out:
It is nicely thick, but not too thick (pasty) where the baby will choke, neither is it too watery. I took a spoonful and it is quite nice. No bland baby food here! I’d eat it as fancy applesauce 😉 Just walk down the trail and squeeze it…hehheh. Having said that Walker enjoyed it immensely and left nothing, eating the whole serving and getting crabby when it was gone. So we have a winner for carrying on hikes!
If you don’t have Whole Foods or a similar style natural foods store it is carried on Amazon: Ella’s Kitchen Organic Baby Food, Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkin, Apples + Blueberries (4+months), 3.5-Ounce Pouches (Pack of 7)
