CLOSED Giveaway: Peter Rabbit Organics 7/12-7/26

            Have you heard of Peter Rabbit Organics? If not, it’s about
time you did!
I make most of Baby J’s foods, but I do love to keep a few pouches like Peter Rabbit Organics on hand for just-in-case. Since they don’t need to be refrigerated, they’re great for day trips and those times you’re held up somewhere unexpectedly. Please read Alicia’s review below, then continue on to the giveaway! -Elisebet, My Life: A Work in Progress
From Alicia:            
As I’m sure you’ve gathered, to say I prefer organic food for my daughter would be an
understatement. That’s why I love Peter Rabbit so much. Peter Rabbit Organics makes
USDA certified organic fruit and veggie puree blends in convenient, BPA-free
pouches. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, artificial is ever added to their purees.
What you see on the image on front of the pouch is exactly what you get: 100%
fruits and veggies blended together for flavors babies and toddlers will love!
Peter Rabbit Organics was kind enough to send some pouches for Myka and I to try out.
Aside from me liking them because they are organic, I also like that they
really are in combinations that children will love. I’m not a big veggie fan,
although I am starting to come around in recent years. I have fed Myka baby
food that I have made and then given her something similar from Peter Rabbit
and she likes the Peter Rabbit blends way better. I’ll admit, I thought they
were pretty tasty too! As long as she enjoys them, I’m happy!
The consistency and texture of PRO purees are excellent as well. In my opinion,
they are the perfect consistency for new eaters, even if they are good as
healthy snacks for older children as well. Please keep in mind they are fruit
and veggie BLENDS, so if your child is literally just trying a new food for the
first time, be sure to give it to them by itself. Once you know they are not
allergic to any of the different fruits and veggies that make up a blend, then
you can feel free to give them puree mixes. Peter Rabbit’s are not too thick
like some can be, so your child is less likely to gag or even choke.
Hopefully you get an idea of the consistency here.
Another favorite feature of mine is the convenience of the pouches. There is no need to
refrigerate them before use. (Although you will need to put it in the fridge
after it is opened for food safety reasons and consume the whole thing within
48 hours. That’s just good sense, though.) I also love that I can just squeeze
out however much I need into Myka’s bowl (which is usually quite a bit because
she seriously LOVES these things!) instead of having to scoop it out of another
container or even thaw ice cubes of baby food out. Who wants to do that?! Peter
Rabbit Organics pouches are also great snacks for toddlers and older children.
It is easy and fun for them to eat straight from the squeeze pouch PLUS you can
take them anywhere! Let’s face it: it’s a lot less messy than some snacks too
and a LOT healthier!
Pear and Pea
I would say that I was excited to see that we had received two of Myka’s favorite flavors,
but I don’t think she’s tried one that she hasn’t liked yet. She loves anything
with fruit or peas in it, so the Pear and Pea blend is one of her favorites!
Most of the time I can’t shovel it in fast enough! Much to my surprise, she
also gobbled up the Carrot, Squash, and Apple puree. While the apples do give
it that sweetness she seems to enjoy, she is not a huge fan of orange veggies
so far. Needless to say, because of this, I was delighted to see that she
actually liked this one. (Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of this one because the babysitter fed the entire thing to her while I was at work!) The Apple & Grape blend was a big hit too. She
actually ate the whole thing in one sitting, which was both exciting and
frightening for me. She liked it so much that she got mad at me a few times
when I wasn’t shoveling it in fast enough.
Um, I think she likes it! 🙂

Review: Little Green Pouch

I’ve decided to do more product reviews of things I have around the house, things that we use regularly. My goal is to give more moms like myself some opinions and reviews to go on for regular household and family items.

My son is about 7.5 months old now and has been eating solids since 6 months. The Little Green Pouch is a patent-pending reusable food pouch that I use to transport and store Baby J’s food.

Little Green Pouch

The Little Green Pouch is BPA and phthalate free, so it’s safe for the little ones. It’s also dishwasher and freezer safe. Before washing, I rinse all the baby food out, and then place the pouch over a prong in the top shelf of the dishwasher. The prong ensures it stays open to be cleaned.

To fill with food, just open the top seal, spoon in the food, and reseal it afterwards. It has 2, 4, and 6 oz. marked on the back, so you know how much food your putting in. The first time I filled it, I made a bit of a mess with the spoon, since the opening isn’t real wide. I was more careful subsequent times, and there was less mess. They do sell collapsible funnels to go with the pouches, which will probably really help avoid messes.

Besides the funnel, another accessory worth considering is the Boon dispensing spoon, since the pouch is compatible with it.

One thing I don’t like about the pouch is the ridges around the dispenser. I’m assuming they’re necessary to use with the spoon, but the food gets stuck in it. This is a little annoying when I’m putting it back into the diaper bag. I sometimes rinse the food off, but I don’t always have a water source to do so. If I wipe it with a napkin or burp cloth, it doesn’t quite come clean.

The design of the pouch is quite thin, so little hands can hold it, but this also means it won’t stand upright, like a Capri Sun pouch.

Overall, it does the job, and I like it (not quite love). I would buy more.

Do you own a Little Green Pouch? Like it, love it, hate it?

Note: I purchased the above items for personal use. I was not compensated for this post.

Chicken Puree is gross

I may have already mentioned this, but I started my son on solids about a week ago now that he’s 6 months. We started with organic brown rice cereal mixed with breast milk, and then he had pureed pears. Today, I cooked a whole chicken in the slow cooker, and had plenty of chicken leftovers after dinner. My mother bought me a Baby Brezza as a shower gift, so I popped about a cup of cooked chicken in there, and it blended it right up. I was curious, so I tasted it. Gross. Of course, when I’m feeding Baby J tomorrow, I’m going to act like it’s the most delicious thing ever!

**Updated Nov. 9. I mixed the chicken with pears, and Baby J LOVED it! He kept yelling at hubby to feed him more! Score me! 

I think next week, we’re going to try sweet potato, and I’m not sure what else. Maybe a veggie?

Throughout the day, I always think of these great things that I want to blog about, but by the time I actually sit down…my thoughts are gone. I know that lately I’ve been posting mostly giveaway-type posts with a smattering of personal posts. I need to get back into reviews, DIY, cooking, etc. I’ve been busy, but the truth is that as the holiday season comes up, I’m just going to get busier. I’ve never been good at sticking to a schedule, but I think that’s really what I need to do at this point.

I’ve almost finished Baby J’s “Thor” costume. Maybe I can post about that this weekend. I’m working on the helmet right now, and I have to say that it would be a lot easier if I was any good at geometry. Getting all the pieces to fit together to make a hat is proving difficult for me!

Well, it’s a short post for tonight. Baby J just started crying, and I’d like to get to bed soon too. I visited friends today, so I didn’t get a lot of housework done. I need to make up for that tomorrow.

Have a great night!
