At childcare is Fun we love reviewing products for littlies – and baby food is something I’m particularly interested in as I homecook most of my littlies meals! However, I’m by no means super-mummy and I do find the occasion when I’m out and about that it’s just easier to have a baby pouch or tub of food that is ready to eat and doesn’t need keeping cool, especially in the warmer weather or on holiday.
It’s not that I disagree with feeding babies bought food, it’s just something I’ve always done in my career so it seemed only right to do it as a mummy! I also find lots of brands of baby food particularly bland and boring for littlies. Food is about fun and experimenting with flavours and so many baby food companies fail to achieve this in their products.
Do you try your baby’s food?
Sound gross? Why?
If it the food you’re about to feed your baby smells and looks awful, why oh why are you feeding it to your baby? I try all shop bought food before giving it to my littlies and that includes all we are asked to review!
I’m pleased to say the lovelies at Plum seem to have put thinking into their baby food! The texture and taste was fabulous and the fruity mix pouches were delicious! (No I didn’t eat a whole pouch- I try just a spoonful!)
Plum have a huge range of flavours for babies – their menu is mighty impressive with flavours that include parsnip,pea and apple puree, and French bean and Beef stew! Our team of testers have munched their way through the majority of the Plumalicious menu!
Were they impressed? Indeed they were! Our littlies thought in particular the Pumpkin, Carrot and Mango puree and the blueberry,vanilla and banana pudding puree were their top favourites, and amongst our mums the puree pouches were top of the list for convenience while out and about or to take away on holiday! just squeeze in, eat and go! Perfect!
The Plum snack range includes yummy multigrain and cheddar crispy rings and savoury carroty bakey bites.
You can see a full list of snacks here.
Our toddler testers loved the Savoury Parmesan Bakey Bites. Great for snacking during bust toddler activities and small enough to pop into a pocket or bag.
Plum also do a breakfast range (you can see their full breakfast menu here.) We thought the fruity porridges were fabulous!
Not only are Plum products tastilicious, they like to keep things simple when making their food, by sticking to four principles that they’ve kept close to their hearts since Plum was born in 2006:
- Always create food as parents first & foremost
- Produce food that uses nutritionally rich organic ingredients that provide a food adventure for little ones, helping them build an appetite for life
- Responsibly source ingredients
- Never use additives or unnecessary fillers
Plum – helping mums do the best they can.
