Baby Gourmet Review and Giveaway

I initially said that this giveaway was for the babies but I've had to reconsider.  My toddler absolutely loved "drinking" from the Baby Gourmet pouch and I have to admit that I've taste tested my fair share in the past week as well.  There are many things that I love about this baby food but the aspect I appreciate the most is the food actually tastes good.  I can personally attest to this after sampling a little bit of each kind myself (I have to check for temperature after all).  In fact, I seriously considered eating the Old Fashioned Apple Crisp flavour with some ice cream.

In addition to being baby food that actually tastes like real, delicious food, the Baby Gourmet products come in BPA free packaging, are organic and there are no extras added such as sugar, salt, or fillers.  The texture appears similar to homemade baby food which I enjoy making and serving as well but there's not always time to prepare baby food myself.  These packages are also great for trips out.  You can just throw a couple in the diaper bag and you've got a healthy snack available.  After Connor's reaction to it, I plan on using them for toddler snacks too.  He loved the taste and thought it was just as fun as drinking out of a juice box.  Of course, I didn't mind either since I know it's healthy!

A little more about Baby Gourmet for those of your unfamiliar.  Baby Gourmet is a new organic baby food company based out of Edmonton.  Their products just recently became available in Walmarts stores.  You can use the Store Locator on their website to find Baby Gourmet near you.

For this review, we received an All Stage Sample box in the mail about a week ago and we have tried almost all nine flavours.  There are three flavours for each stage.  Stage 1 is for 6 + Months and includes simple purees, Stage 2 is for 7 + months and features more flavours combinations and Stage 3 is for 8 + months and it introduces more texture.  Since Aleena just turned 10 months, we were able to try all of the flavours and not worry about allergies since she's tried all the fruits/veggies before with the exception of pumpkin and garden greens.   
The All Stage Sampler Box that we reviewed included the following:
  • 1 pouch of Stage 1 Orchard Apple, Carrot & Prune
  • 1 pouch of Stage 1 Juicy Pear & Garden Greens
  • 1 pouch of Stage 1 Harvest Pear, Pumpkin & Banana
  • 1 pouch of Stage 2 Baby’s Sweet Potato Pie
  • 1 pouch of Stage 2 Apple Sweet Potato Berry Swirl
  • 1 pouch of Stage 2 Roasted Squash & Fruit Medley
  • 1 pouch of Stage 3 Vanilla Banana berry Risotto
  • 1 pouch of Stage 3 Tropical Banana Bliss
  • 1 pouch of Stage 3 Old Fashioned Apple Crisp
Here's a couple more photos of the kids trying everything out.  We had lots of fun taking some photos this morning.  The Tropical Bliss Banana was a huge hit!  Aleena was desperate to eat it and she had just finished having milk so she wasn't exactly starving at the time.  Connor seemed curious so I squeezed out some for Aleena in a bowl and let him finish the rest of the pouch.  This is a direct quote from Connor: "Mmmm..that's good!".   The first photo was taken last week.  I wanted to show the texture and how it appears a lot like homemade baby food.

Baby Gourmet food is truly 'real' food and similar to the homemade versions I've made before.

This photo speaks for itself!  :-)
Connor loved it too.
