When it comes it feeding my kids, I check labels on everything. my oldest has life-threatening food allergies and while the baby doesn’t seem to have any of the issue her brother has, I’m still mindful of what I feed my family. We try to eat a healthy, mostly organic diet. While not everything I buy is organic, things like meat, dairy and fruit always are as well as the baby’s food. Eating organic and checking labels is something I’ve become quite accustomed to and you’d be surprised to see what’s actually in some of the foods we eat. Even organic baby food products. How well do you know what’s in your baby food?
No really? Do you know?
Grab one of your baby food pouches or jars, I’ll wait for you. Now check out the back. I’ll be honest, even with all my label checking, sometimes even I get too comfortable and just grab something because it says “organic” or “natural” on the label and was really surprised to see what else is in some of the pouches I had at home. Once I was introduced to Sprout Organic Foods, I learned a thing or two about the organic brands I was buying. Sprout only uses ingredients like the ones found in my own kitchen. There’s no preservatives and nothing artificial. They offer delicious blends of whole fruits, vegetables and grains giving babies greater exposure to wholesome foods to help foster healthy eating habits for life. When you flip over a Sprout Organic Baby Food Pouch, you’ll see just what it says on the front of the pouch. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Research shows that babies develop a love of healthy food early on and as an adult who doesn’t eat many vegetables outside of fresh spinach and certain fruits, it was imperative for me to teach my kids to eat healthy as soon as they starting eating solids. Right now Babies “R” Us has a great deal on Sprout foods. Through October 2nd you can receive a $10 gift card with a $25 Sprout purchase. We headed there the other day to take advantage of this great deal. My little one loves her Sprout Food pouches and as soon as she saw them, she started picking out her favorites.She happily shopped for her “favorites” while we were there. I love to keep a few of these in our diaper bag or my purse. They’re a great snack when we’re on the go and at home.
What were you surprised to see in your baby food?
