I love to give baby girl fruit puree’s. We started on them on our weaning journey many months ago. They gave me a piece of mind knowing she couldn’t choke, and also that she was getting her daily intake of fruit. I can honestly say we have probably tried most puree’s on sale, until we were offered to try out the ones from the Goodness Gracious Food Company. These were ones I had never heard of!
We love to go out for walks and have a day out around our favourite place Malpas, Truro down here in Cornwall. So when we were invited to take part with the Aldi #MamiaDaysOut challenge we knew exactly where we were going to go for a little picnic.
On Friday the sun was shining and the blue sky was out so we decided to go for a little picnic before our Baby Sensory class. Although it was fairly cold, well I suppose it is Autumn, it was a gorgeous day.
We are weaning! So when the lovely people from Heavenly Organic Superfoods asked if I wanted to try out their range of baby foods, I said yes! It has come at just the right time. We have hit 6 Months. That magical age where babies want more than milk.
Baby girl has started off on purees. I’m sorry but baby-led weaning is not for us. I can’t think of anything worse than giving a 6 month old a stick of cooked carrot or a broccoli floret and say here you go. The fear of choking is too high for me.
Anyway heavenly organic have a great range of fruit pouches and wafer wisps on the market.
Heavenly organic superfoods are a range of guilt-free baby weaning meals and they have now moved into snacks as well. They were invented by Shauna Blair who was frustrated about the limited choice of baby food in Northern Ireland for children.
Heavenly Organic Wafer Wisps
Don’t you just love the name ‘wafer wisps’?
Baby girl loves these! She adores anything banana flavored at the moment so we tried the pumpkin and banana wafer wisps first. I love the subtle banana smell. They also taste really nice and not overly sweet. I love to have a quick taste of her food before she tries it!
We are now starting on that big journey – Weaning! That scary time for a parent. Your baby is growing up. They need more than milk now so you enter that phase and question yourself.
What on earth do you feed them?
We have started slow and began with baby rice mixed with some of my breast milk. Baby girl loves it!.
As a newbie to buying baby food packets and jars I didn’t realise that they have different time limits in which they need to be used by. The packets of baby rice have a month. Some of the jars have 24 hours, some have 48 hours.
How on earth will I remember what was opened when, and when I’m supposed to use it by?
