Review of Plum babyfood

Posted on | October 19, 2007 | No Comments

Plum babyfood

Handy tubs of organic, preservative free baby food with not just the usual carrot/potato/pear main ingredients.

The baby really loves the spinach, parsnip and basil variety of this babyfood. It smells like pesto and she wolfs it down.

I spotted these a few months ago in the local SuperValu. The packaging can misdirect you slightly as initially I did think it was just pureed plums. Its a purple coloured box and inside it contains 2 100gr tubs of food. On closer inspection, I discovered it was an organic babyfood range that’s preservative and artifical additive free.

The range doesn’t seem to use the usual run of the mill bulking ingredigents of carrots and potatoes. Instead amongst others, there’s

  • Spinach, parsnip, apple and basil
  • Parsnip, apple and pea
  • plum, pomegranate and guava
  • mango and banana
  • Squash and sweet potato

They come in packs of 2 airtight containers which keep unopened in the press for months and then, once opened can be stored in the fridge for another couple of days.  They are really handy for popping into the bag if we’re out and about, in case the baby gets hungry away from home.

The spinach, parsnip and basil mixture has quite a watery consistancy but this makes it very handy for then mixing with other mushed baby foods or small pasta shapes. This also makes it more likely that she’ll eat other food.

They are more expensive than the usual baby food selection, but I feel worth the extra cost.

So far I have only seen the 4 month plus range in Irish shops. There is a 7 month plus range  and cereal range too but to date I have not spotted them.
