I thought my daughter was out of the baby food stage however one of my friends told me about giving their son some of the baby food pouches for snacks and freezing them for popsicles during the summer months. I thought this was a good idea especially if we were in a hurry to go somewhere or she could not eat what we were having for lunch or dinner. They also make good fruit to go into oatmeal if it is not in season at the grocery store.
I’d seen Peter Rabbit organics in a Starbucks of all places and wondered why they were in a coffee shop. I looked them up online and found they are a small privately owned company based in Oregon. I guess I just assumed they were a large national chain. They try to buy local ingredients made in the USA which is nice for the local economy. It is also reassuring to know that their organic fruit snacks have no artificial ingredients, salt or sugar. I know I’ve said it before but I also love the convenient pouches and I only wish I had known about them when my son was born but I think they were new on the market.
My daughter loved all of the Peter Rabbit flavors. Banana and Apple seemed to be her favorite though. We think she may be part monkey because nowadays that’s about the only thing I can get her to eat since she is teething. I tasted the banana and apple flavor and I would say it has more of the banana taste than apple so that’s probably why she liked it so much.
Another flavor I was surprised she enjoyed so much was Pea, Spinach & Apple. To me it didn’t sound or look very good however she gobbled it right up. I could really taste the spinach flavor and actually when I thought about it, they are the same ingredients you put into a spinach salad. I even got my three year old to try it and at first he said it was yummy then he took another swig and had the opposite reaction so I think he’s on the fence! No surprise there though!
