We we were sent a lovely basket of Heinz Baby Pouches to try. As Bubs is weaning, it seemed a great chance to try some new foods and textures.
Heinz Baby Pouches are available in 10 fruit and savoury flavours, such as apple and blueberry, sweet potato, parsnip and apple and creamy fish pie. They are split into two stages – stage one (4mths +) is smoother and second stage (7mths +) is a more mashed consistency.
We have been trying the baby led weaning approach, but more runnier things Bubs is happy to have from a spoon. Bubs is happy with a range of textures. We have tried all the pouches and I must say they have been a hit. The fruit pouches especially have been a favourite, and are great after dinner as a ‘pudding’. The pouches are really easy to use and open, and the squeeze really well so you don’t have a lot of the food still left in the pouch.
They are fabulous for travelling. I recently travelled to Leeds with Bubs and these were really useful. I particularly like the fact you can put the lid back on again so you don’t have to use it all – some other pouches I have used have been rip open ones, and that has meant when I have been out, it’s either use the whole lot or chuck the rest out!
Savoury meal wise, bubs loved the fish pie and also liked the vegetable combinations – she loved pumpkin, sweet potato and apricot! They all smell really nice, and I have tried them myself, and they are very tasty and full of flavour. I think these are great for a quick and easy meal, such as adding the veg pouch with some pasta or potatoes for example.
Overall we really like these pouches, and I particularly like the fruit ones, as it is a great alternative to yoghurt, and can be added to cereal, porridge or had on its own for example.
