Baby Gourmet Review & Giveaway


I was recently sent an All Stage Sample Pack of Baby Gourmet baby food to try out on J. These are made with 100% organic ingredients.  They come in this super cute and fun for kids packaging.  The packaging also has a double duty, working hard for parents to make sure you can get every last drop of goodness, and also that it's BPA free, and come on, your kids are going to love squeezing their food out.

They come in 3 stages.  Stage 1 is simple purees for 6+ months, Stage 2 is yummy combos for 7+ months, and Stage 3 is tasty textures for 8+ months.

In the All Stage sample pack J received, it contained:

  • 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





Her favourite seems to be the Harvest Pear, Pumpkin & Banana.  I let her decide which one she would like to try based on the pictures.  She likes bananas, so it was expected by me to be her choice.  I gave it a try as well, and it tastes just like what it says. Yummy.   She really had fun getting to slurp out of the pouch itself.  She felt like a big kid, but also got to decide how much food she wanted at a time, and likes squishing, because, every kid loves to squish ANYTHING...lol 

Each pouch comes with a recyclable screw on lid, so you can re close it if your nugget will want to come back to it soon.  These are great for your diaper bag or purse, you never know when a hungry cranky kid will attack. Taking up way less room than a jar, and because it's packaging is adaptable making them fit into smaller spaces.  These are yummy and fun so your little nugget is going to think this is a treat, and you're going to love the healthy goodness getting into their growing body.  They can slurp it right out of the pouch itself if they're a little older, and enjoy it, or you could put it into a bowl and spoon feed.  They can be served straight out of the cupboard,  cold out of the fridge, or served warm (do not heat in package).  Each pouch contains 128 ml (2 servings)

The packaging is going to keep that yummy goodness fresh on your shelf for 15 long months!  So keep these on hand just in case a snow storm happens.  That's just like keeping canned goods in your cupboard, but know that these are way healthier, contain no added salt, sugar, thickeners, fillers, and are delicious.  You might even catch yourself taking a taste or two.  I mean you wanna know what your precious cutie is eating.

With so many of these baby foods some of them taste, ummmm, like butthole.  Don't people ever think that babies/children deserve a healthy food that also tastes good.  It seems that lots of people are forgetting that these young ones are also people, and come on, they're not going to be eating something that makes them gag.  Just because they don't know what they're missing doesn't mean they don't have taste buds.  At Baby Gourmet they make sure to do just that.  Give you want you want to feed that sweet little child, while also making sure the one eating is is happy and excited to eat.  This makes feeding time so much easier, and not so much of a chore.

As an added benefit to you, each pouch has loyalty points. Just set up an account and track down the points from the back of your pouch. Just to let you know how many points you can get, when ordering a sample pack you will get 600 points for ordering online.  These will add up fast!  Read more about their loyalty program here.

There are so many great flavours to choose from.  I would suggest feeding your nugget foods 1 at a time to rule out any allergies before trying mixed foods.  J was allergic to cow's milk, peanuts, and tree nuts for the 1st  2  years of her life.  She had to carry an epi-pen everywhere we went just in case.  You never know if there might be an allergy there.   Everyone is different.  Then once you know they can handle the foods in certain pouches, you can introduce them. Knowing very well you're doing it the safest way possible.  


I think Baby Gourmet is a great addition to any parent's food list.  They are super healthy, very yummy, fun, and enjoyed by kids.  Also a little side note, from looking at my pics of J you can see Baby Gourmet isn't just for babies.  These are great for toddlers and older kids as well.
