I’m a big proponent of making your own baby food and I loved every minute of creating delicious meals for my babies. I felt like a total scientist in the kitchen when I was combining different flavors and textures to come up with exciting creations for my little ones to gobble up or spit out. Whatever. : )
Making my own baby food was a lot of fun and an experience I won’t ever forget. It definitely took time to make a stockpile of food, but I found the experience very rewarding. Still, like every parent I definitely appreciated the convenience of pre-made organic baby food when I needed it. Life as a parent is crazy busy and you are always running around and let’s face it,
sometimes most of the time, we can use all the help we can get. There were definitely times when I relied upon organic baby food like Plum to get us through a plane ride, a rode trip or just as back up snacks in my diaper bag for emergencies. Trust me, those squeeze pouches are a godsend when you have a screaming toddler in the backseat of your car and you need food. Fast! I learned to pop those suckers open with one hand on the steering wheel. Saving grace, indeed.
When my first son was born, the organic baby food market was really beginning to explode and by the time I had my second son in 2011, Plum Organics had definitely proven to be one of the top companies on the market. Anyone can make a veggie or fruit puree, but it takes an extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful company to go beyond the basics to really make their product something special. I have to say I am most impressed with their grain blends. Being a big fan of millet and quinoa, I find it refreshing and super convenient to be able to find fruit and veggie purees that contain these super grains in an easy squeezable BPA-free pouch. Not only is plum giving people a change to explore new and exciting foods with their babies, their making it easy and delicious! Love. That!
The people at Plum make nutritious foods in order to inspire healthy eating habits. Not only are is their entire line certified organic, they never use artificial ingredients, trans fats or corn syrup in any of their foods and adhere to strict cooking methods that preserve both the nutrients and the flavor of the ingredients they use. From the BPA-free packaging to the flavor combos, every aspect of the Plum Organics line is well thought out and executed.
Plum organics obviously cares about the consumer and they truly believe that the product they make really matters and that’s something I can get behind. So, when I was asked to write a recipe for their Facebook Little Foodies Cookbox, I was more than happy to oblige. Using one of our favorite pouches—Strawberry Mish Mash—I created a Baked Strawberry Breakfast Pocket that easily rivals any store bought breakfast strudel and is nutritious enough to serve to your little eaters. Think mini pies filled with cream cheese and sweetened naturally thanks to the delicious Strawberry Mish Mash Pouch—the best excuse to eat pie for breakfast. Warning: you WILL want to eat the entire batch. Just remember to save some for the kids!
