Baby Gourmet Review

Recently I was given the opportunity to review Baby Gourmet- 100% Organic Baby Food.

Baby Gourmet

My boys might be past the baby and toddler age, but I decided to review the baby food with the help of two beautiful baby girls that belong to my friends.

Little did I know that my children would actually fight the babies for the food during the Baby Gourmet Tasting Party.

Baby Gourmet is a brain child of two busy moms Jennifer and Jill. Two busy Canadian moms who were determined not to compromise nutrition for convenience.

All of Baby Gourmet’s recipes originate in Jen’s home kitchen and that right there is why you should be feeding your baby food from Baby Gourmet.

Baby Gourmet is a new baby food company making only 100% Organic Baby Food. Baby food that is tasty, natural, safe and made only from the freshest ingredients.

All Of Baby Gourmet Products Have:

100% Organic Ingredients
No Thickeners or Fillers
No Added Sugar and Salt
BPA Free Packaging

Baby Gourmet

Baby Gourmet Offers 3 Stages of Baby Food:

Stage 1 – 6 Months+ – Simple Purees
Stage 2 – 7 Months+ -Yummy Combos

Baby Gourmet review

For my review I received a Sample Pack containing 3 flavors from each stage.

We got to taste (sorry the babies did) from Stage 1:

Harvest Pear, Pumpkin & Banana
Juicy Pear & Garden Greens
Orchard Apple, Carrot & Prune

From Stage 2 we tasted:

Apple Sweet Potato Berry Swirl
Roasted Squash & Fruit Medley
Baby’s Sweet Potato Pie

From Stage 3 we tasted:

Old Fashioned Apple Crisp
Vanilla Banana Berry Risotto
Tropical Banana Bliss

Doesn’t all these delicious combinations make you hungry?

Let me tell you, both babies LOVED every single flavor.I remember how I had to fight with my kids when on occasion I fed them baby food from jar.

How about the times I had to pretend to eat the baby food making delicious sounds just so my boys eat it. Just thinking about it makes me cringe. Did I really do that?

Baby Gourmet

Baby Gourmet baby food is so tasty that my 8 year old requested few of the flavors in his lunchbox.

If you have a baby (expecting one) or even a toddler you must check out Baby Gourmet website to find out more. You can also order Baby Gourmet food directly from their site.

You can also check the STORE LOCATOR to find a store near you.

One more thing…..the baby food comes in a SQUEEZE POUCH…now, how cool is that?
