Baby Food Fridays Series - Peter Rabbit Organics Review & Giveaway

            Have you heard of Peter Rabbit Organics? If not, it’s about time you did!

            As I’m sure you’ve gathered, to say I prefer organic food for my daughter would be an understatement. That’s why I love Peter Rabbit so much. Peter Rabbit Organics makes USDA certified organic fruit and veggie puree blends in convenient, BPA-free pouches. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, artificial is ever added to their purees. What you see on the image on front of the pouch is exactly what you get: 100% fruits and veggies blended together for flavors babies and toddlers will love!
            Peter Rabbit Organics was kind enough to send some pouches for Myka and I to try out. Aside from me liking them because they are organic, I also like that they really are in combinations that children will love. I’m not a big veggie fan, although I am starting to come around in recent years. I have fed Myka baby food that I have made and then given her something similar from Peter Rabbit and she likes the Peter Rabbit blends way better. I’ll admit, I thought they were pretty tasty too! As long as she enjoys them, I’m happy!
            The consistency and texture of PRO purees are excellent as well. In my opinion, they are the perfect consistency for new eaters, even if they are good as healthy snacks for older children as well. Please keep in mind they are fruit and veggie BLENDS, so if your child is literally just trying a new food for the first time, be sure to give it to them by itself. Once you know they are not allergic to any of the different fruits and veggies that make up a blend, then you can feel free to give them puree mixes. Peter Rabbit’s are not too thick like some can be, so your child is less likely to gag or even choke.
Hopefully you get an idea of the consistency here.
            Another favorite feature of mine is the convenience of the pouches. There is no need to refrigerate them before use. (Although you will need to put it in the fridge after it is opened for food safety reasons and consume the whole thing within 48 hours. That’s just good sense, though.) I also love that I can just squeeze out however much I need into Myka’s bowl (which is usually quite a bit because she seriously LOVES these things!) instead of having to scoop it out of another container or even thaw ice cubes of baby food out. Who wants to do that?! Peter Rabbit Organics pouches are also great snacks for toddlers and older children. It is easy and fun for them to eat straight from the squeeze pouch PLUS you can take them anywhere! Let’s face it: it’s a lot less messy than some snacks too and a LOT healthier!
Pear and Pea
            I would say that I was excited to see that we had received two of Myka’s favorite flavors, but I don’t think she’s tried one that she hasn’t liked yet. She loves anything with fruit or peas in it, so the Pear and Pea blend is one of her favorites! Most of the time I can’t shovel it in fast enough! Much to my surprise, she also gobbled up the Carrot, Squash, and Apple puree. While the apples do give it that sweetness she seems to enjoy, she is not a huge fan of orange veggies so far. Needless to say, because of this, I was delighted to see that she actually liked this one. (Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of this one because the babysitter fed the entire thing to her while I was at work!) The Apple & Grape blend was a big hit too. She actually ate the whole thing in one sitting, which was both exciting and frightening for me. She liked it so much that she got mad at me a few times when I wasn’t shoveling it in fast enough.
Um, I think she likes it! :)
