Babease Food for Babies not Baby Food

Kipper is now nine months old, I have no idea where the time has gone but we are well into  our weaning journey. The first pre made baby food I tried him on was one of Babease’s at the Baby Show. I was Instantly impressed with the desire to produce a baby food which is vegetable led, unlike many of the others in the marketplace. Babease - Food for Babies not Baby Food I desperately tried to keep him on vegetables only for the first few weeks. However that is quite difficult when it comes to needing something convenient off the shelf and this is where Babease come in. As they do not add fruit fillers to their recipes. By opting for vegetables first I hoped that Kipper would not become hooked on the sweetness of the fruit. Which understandably is more appealing to them. By giving Kipper more savoury options I was hoping to increase his acceptance of vegetables, especially greens. As babies are more receptive to new flavours in the earliest stages. It definitely seems to have worked with him, I am yet to find a vegetable which he is not keen on. Although Avocado is not a popular choice but I think that is more to do with the texture. Babease - Food for Babies not Baby Food I also like the fact that each recipe has been created by a chef and a nutritionalist and they use organic ingredients sourced in the UK when possible. They are also free form added sugar and salt, dairy free, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. So far Babease have released both stage 1 (4 months+) and stage 2 (7 months+) options: Babease - Food for Babies not Baby Food Stage 1:

  • Sweet Potato, Carrot & Cauliflower
  • Butternut Squash, Carrot & Broccoli
  • Pumpkin & Pea
  • Sweet Potato, Pear, with Coconut Water, Brown Rice & Quinoa
  • Banana, Pear & Blueberry with Brown Rice
  • Pear & Mixed Berries, with Coconut water Brown Rice & Quinoa

Babease - Food for Babies not Baby Food Stage 2:

  • Sweet Potato, Tomato, Carrot & Quinoa with Chickpeas & Cumin
  • Butternut Squash, Quinoa & Beetroot with Onion & Sage
  • Chickpea, Pumpkin, Tomato & Coconut Cream with Herbs & Milk Masala
  • Broccoli, Parsnip, Green & Puy Lentils with Onion, Fennel, Tomato & Herbs
  • Brown Rice, Swede, Courgette & Kale with Onion, Garlic & Thyme

Babease - Food for Babies not Baby Food The fact that the recipes also have a wide range of herbs and some spices adds to the flavour and are normally the sorts of ingredients you generally find in baby food. We have tried the majority of these and unsurprisingly all of them have gone down well with Kipper. I have even eaten them! And so I know they do not taste like your typical baby food, hence the Food for babies – not baby food!! Babease - Food for Babies not Baby Food The packaging also scores highly, not only do the lovely cardboard sleeves have some delicious recipes on the back, they also help the pouch to stand up! The piechart on the back gives you details of the contents at a glance. They are so useful I actually think it should be compulsory to put them on all prepared food. So they have scored really highly in my book and for a RRP of £1.19 for stage 1 and £1.49 for stage 2 they are very well priced. I would definitely recommend these to friends without a second thought.

    We did baby led weaning so I’ve not really used pouches but I love the sound of these combinations of vegetables. It all sounds super healthy and definitely something I would be more likely to give my baby rather than a jar or a fruit pouch xx

    Currently starting the weaning journey, although I’d like to do a lot of homemade foods for baby, sometimes convenience in king and these seem a great option.

    Love the idea of it having so much vegetables and not fruit. Love that it’s organic. We try to do organic as much as we can afford to. Not crazy about the fact that it doesn’t have any meat products. Protein is so important to little ones. Also not crazy about all that rice. It has been proven to be high in arsenic. It’s so hard to find the perfect baby food. #BloggerClubUK

    I’ll be starting our weaning journey in a few weeks, so I’ll definitely be looking into these! I’m planning on doing baby led weaning, but also using pouches etc. for convenience when we’re out and about. #BloggerClubUK

    Our little man has just turned 6 months but started weanijgnearly due to health reasons. There are a fisr few products out there that contain milk which is one thing we have to avoid. I have started making my own but pouches are sometimes easier in a hurry. We give him a bit of both at the moment and he seems fine ????

    I’m hoping the Butternut Squash one,my grand-daughter will be one this month and my daughter is having a terrible time with weaning her.The main problem,well actually the two main problems are,anything with a bit of texture and she gags then throws up and also anything savoury and she clamps her mouth shut.It can only get better !

    My baby daughter seems to like anything with blueberry in it so she would probably like the
    Banana, Pear & Blueberry with Brown Rice the best.

    Pea & pumpkin sounds a very interesting combo. Weaning has been a long and difficult journey for us so far but my daughter has started to enjoy a mix of purées & finger foods so hopefully we’re finally getting somewhere.
    Fingers crossed to win and try these out.
