One day last week I made a schoolboy mothering error. I got the girls up and dressed and headed downstairs for breakfast, opened the fridge door and oh dear. The full fat milk carton was empty.
This is no problem for Ava who, at 2, can happily munch her cereal doused in semi-skimmed, but at 8 months old, Heidi is still fully on the fat when it comes to her breakfast cereal.
I racked my brains. A trip to the shops would risk Heidi falling asleep on route (yes, it does feel like she goes down for a nap very quickly after waking from a whole night's sleep... Babies, hey?!) and toast is fine, but about as much ends up on her floor as goes in her mouth... And then it hit me!
The day before I'd received a parcel in the post full to the brim of baby goodies! HiPP Organic had sent me their latest range of food pouches to review for all of you lovely people and suddenly my breakfast dilemma was solved!
Heidi merrily tucked in to her apple and baby rice breakfast and the day was saved!
I am a BIG believer in home cooked food for little tums. There's nothing quite like a good home-cooked meal, is there? But I tell you what, these pouches are fabulous for when your out and about... Easy to store, no bowl necessary and my little lady has been seriously enjoying trying out some of the different flavours.
The other thing I really liked that I found different to some of the other brands we have used was that in the 7+ month options the little lumps were actually little lumps. Sometimes I have found the texture of the 4 month and 7 month baby food to be verging on exactly the same, but I liked the fact Heidi would actually be able to appreciate the different textures in these pouches.
Maybe you don't have a little one yourself, but wouldn't it be a great little gift for someone you know who is about to embark on the exciting adventure that is weaning?!
Go on... Look how great they are!!
