As a mother, it’s important to me to give my son the best food possible. From his first day of life, I started by breastfeeding. (Not that I disagree with formula. We even supplemented with some during Dylan’s early days at the urging of our pediatrician for health reasons.) As he began to eat solid foods, I starting making his food and I still make the majority of the foods he eats. However, there are some foods I don’t make (ie, rice cereal) and sometimes I’ve just fallen behind or want to mix up the pallet a bit.
I originally stumbled across HappyBaby Food by accident one day perusing foods in the freezer aisle of the grocery store. I loved that they had food just like my homemade ones – organic foods, pureed and frozen into 1 ounce portions. I picked up a box to try at home. Dylan loved the taste and devoured them. I loved the convenience and good nutrition.
When the opportunity arose to taste test a few HappyBaby Food products for a review and giveaway, I jumped at the chance. It was a bit like Christmas when the packages arrived. We received an assortment of frozen and dry foods to try.
Dylan is in a self-feeding stage right now where he prefers to feed himself more than eat off a spoon from us. That said, we started our taste testing with the HappyBites products. The variety of shapes and textures of the different options seemed to grab his attention right away. I think he was curious about these new items that we didn’t cut into tiny pieces. He could finally grab, hold and bite into them on his own.
|Enjoying a Chicken Bite|
The only leftovers on Dylan’s highchair tray after trying the Chicken Bites and Salmon Stix were a bit of the breading. Can’t blame him there. Personally, I found the Mac+Cheese and the Chicken to be very tasty. All three cooked best in the oven.
We already had some familiarity with the HappyBaby Frozen products so I was excited to see flavors that we hadn’t tried in the shipment. Dylan surprised me with his love of the “Mama Grain” mixture of organic bananas, black beans and quinoa. This particular flavor smelled like banana bread. Yum!
The Organic Puffs and HappyMelts were also a big hit. I’ve tried both myself and found them to be tasty. Dylan eats every piece that he can get his hands on so I take it he finds them tasty too. The puffs were less sugary than other brands we’ve used which is a huge plus to me as a parent.
All in all, we were very pleased with all the products we tried and Dylan will definitely be enjoying more in the future. Now we want to share with you. Compliments of HappyBaby Food, one reader will win the following:
