No Junk Weaning with HiPP Organic

One of the most important things when you start weaning your baby is knowing that the food that you're providing them with is both nutritional and junk free. Obviously it helps if it tastes good too. The easiest way to do that is to make your own food from fresh, which is exactly what I did with Squidgy. This time around it is not as easy to find the time to cook and prepare fresh food every day, so although I am doing some meals this way, I wanted to have a back up plan. That's where pouches and jars of baby food came in.

We have been trying out HiPP Organic's new range of jars and they have gone down a storm with both my girls (as Squidgy wanted to try them too!) and also with me as their mum! Here is a few reasons why we love them so much.

HiPP Organic have a massive range of options...

Not only do HiPP offer a range of different flavours from 'Apple & Pear' to 'Banana & Peach' but they also offer a variety of meal choices from their breakfast layer jars to their dinner in a jar. Little L's favourite ones are the yogurt and cereal breakfast layer jars, and anything with strawberry in (all the better when the two are combined!)

HiPP Organic offer age appropriate ranges...

The new range of HiPP Organic jars have been designed to contain the recommended energy requirements for each stage of weaning. As a parent, anything that makes our lives easier is a winner, so having jars of food that cover all the bases that need covering without worrying about portion sizes and having to create a three course meal for our children is perfect.

HiPP Organic is a family run business...

Many of you may have read various posts including my "Meet the Maker" series and know that I love all things family run, and this is no different. Knowing that HiPP Organic is a family run business makes me even more inclined to buy their products!

HiPP Organic's fruit jars contain 100% fruit...

Everyone worries these days about what is in our food and diets, and I have found that I am twice as bad since having children. There is always going to be new "scientific research" regarding one thing or another when it comes to the food that we consume, and when confronted by one news article after another all it does is make us worry. Having products like the HiPP Organic jars that can guarantee you know exactly what is in them takes away that worry, because you know that the food you are providing your children is healthy and nutritious and junk free!

HiPP Organic jars are 100% recyclable...

We are becoming more aware these days of the long term effects of the lives that we lead, from reducing energy usage to recycling. In our home we use cloth nappies to reduce the amount of waste that we are sending off to the landfill. Knowing that we can put the washed out jars into the recycling means that we have one less thing to dump in the rubbish.

HiPP Organic makes tasty baby food...

This is not something that I can vouch for, but if the reaction of my children, especially Little L, is anything to go by it must be good. She absolutely loves her food, and I have never seen her so excited as when she sees the jars heading her way!

HiPP Organic jars can be microwaved...

As long as you remember to stir the food inside to ensure that the food doesn't have any hot spots, you can pop the jar into the microwave to heat it up. This is so much quicker and easier than some brands which say to decant it into a microwavable bowl or even to put the jar or pouch into boiling water to warm it; and time saving is paramount as a parent with hungry, demanding children!

HiPP Organic have chosen the perfect packaging...

The entire range has so many bright colours in both the branding and the packaging, including pictures of nature and of course the ingredients included in each jar. This makes it so easy to see in amongst the various different brands of baby food jars that you find in the supermarket, and thus it is the perfect product for parents who want to spend as little time as possible navigating the aisles of their local shops, especially when they have their mini humans tagging along.

HiPP Organic have improved their jar shape...

In order to enable easier spoon access to the full contents of the jar, HiPP Organic have widened the neck. A great reason for this is that the jar and spoon method of feeding has been proven to help develop motor skills and help babies with coordination, sucking, biting and chewing. To be honest with you, Little L just likes sticking her hands inside and licking the contents off her hands, but we'll get there I am sure!

There are so many reasons that we love HiPP Organic jars, and we also have been buying a selection of their pouches too, which are fabulous to pop in the changing bag for those hungry moments when you are out and about. HiPP Organic is a winner in our household, and continues to make our weaning journey a happy, healthy and easy one!
