On our journey through feeding, we have explored a variety of baby food products and I have learned that when it comes to prepared baby food, W definitely prefers the organics that come in pouches. So I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try the Ella’s Kitchen products with him. Ella’s Kitchen began when Paul Lindley grew concerned about the food his daughter, Ella, was eating. At Ella’s kitchen they are passionate about giving children the opportunity to eat healthy foods. They believe eating can be fun, tasty, and cool for kids! They currently offer 5 different product lines to meet the needs of children of various ages. We had the opportunity to try a variety of the Ella’s Kitchen Organic Baby Food products as part of this review.
We received the 3 flavors from the Ella’s 1 Baby food line of products including Carrots, Apples, & Parsnips, Apples & Bananas, and Broccoli, Pears, & Peas. We also had the opportunity to try The Red One and The Purple One from the Smooth Fruits line.
Before I go any further, I have to admit that I am a huge fan of the Ella’s Kitchen packaging. I love the pouches but I also love the color of the packaging. When I am at the store, these pouches always catch my eye because of their bright, bold colors.They definitely stand out on the shelves full of pouches and jars.
As I mentioned, I am also a fan of the pouch design. Once I discovered that the Boon spoon fits on all of the baby food pouches I was even more of a fan. The spoon fits perfectly on the Ella’s Kitchen pouches and makes feeding such a breeze. I love how convenient baby food pouches are because they are great for the diaper bag! W eats a lot of food with us from our plates but it is nice to have a pouch or two in the diaper bag in case of emergencies. They are also great in case I get hungry and need a little snack on the go!
I also like the Ella’s Kitchen baby food because it is 100% organic. They also have a number of other great features including:
- no added water, preservatives, or thickeners
- no gluten, wheat, dairy, or lactose
- nothing artificial, just organic food!
- no added salt or sweeteners
I felt great about offering these to W and he felt great about eating them! I will admit that I wasn’t sure he would be a fan of Broccoli, Pears, & Peas but after a few bites he was ready to go and it is actually one of his favorite flavors!
W enjoyed all of the flavors from Ella’s Kitchen and for the first time, I let him try just using the pouch to eat. The great thing about these pouches is that they can be a grab and go snack because you can suck the food right out of them if you know how! I wasn’t sure W was quite old enough and you can see from the photo that it was messy but he actually got most of the food into his mouth!
We are definitely fans of Ella’s Kitchen and as W continues to move to eating more and more food from our plates, I still keep some of these pouches handy for the diaper bag and on-the-go because of the convenience factor! If you’re looking for easy food for your baby or your older kids and want to make sure they are getting the healthy stuff, I would recommend that you check out Ella’s Kitchen.
You can purchase Ella’s Kitchen products in most stores and I always see them at my Target and Babies ‘R Us. You can also use the Where to Buy feature on the Ella’s Kitchen website to locate a store near you! To learn even more about this great company, get connected on Twitter and Facebook!
