SproutBaby ~ As Healthy for Your Children as they are Good for the Earth!

Recently we had the great pleasure of reviewing Sprout Foods organic baby food by SproutBaby. Their baby foods are made with all certified organic ingredients. No artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, and they taste delicious...even to us adults!

The SproutBaby company was formed on the idea that, given enough information and access, parents would gladly choose products that are as healthy for their children as they are good for the earth, and they don't believe that parents should have to sacrifice wholesome options on account of accessibility or affordability. It is their goal to provide parents with healthy, eco-friendly, easily accessible products. And we feel they are doing a fabulous job of it!

Whitney received several samples of Sprout Foods Organic Baby Food for her son, here is what she thought...

My son is 9 months old and is sort of a picky eater already. We received several packets of Sprout Foods organic baby food and my initial thought was, "Hmm, a pouch with a zip closure?" I opened the pouch of Baked Sweet Potatoes & White Beans and fed it to my son for lunch. He absolutely Loved it!

As I was feeding him I noticed how wonderful having his food in a pouch was. I loved how the pouch would allow me to feed him on the go and with any utensil. With the baby food jars that I currently use, I sometimes have a problem with some utensils because they do not fit properly in the jar and I cannot get to the bottom, or around the upper edges. The pouches are also great because if he doesn't finish all of his food I can just zip it up and put it away. No frustration trying to find the lid and then trying to get it back on the jar. It is also a great space saver because they fit so nicely in the fridge compartments or in a basket in my cabinets.

My son was so eager to eat every bite of Sprouts Foods baby food, unlike his other baby food, so my mother and I just had to taste it and boy were we amazed...it was delicious, unlike regular baby food that makes you feel bad feeding it to them because it tastes terrible. After my son finished eating the last of the samples that Sprout Foods sent, I went back to feeding him his old baby food and to my surprise he refused to eat it. Since his favorite food was the Sweet Potatoes & White Beans I went to the grocery store and bought him some Sweet Potatoes baby food in a jar and he ate just 3 bites then he was done. When I fed him the Sprouts Organic Baby Food he would eat the entire thing and pretty quickly too.

The Sprout Foods Organic Baby Food is a bit pricier then what I am currently feeding him, but I loved that there are no added preservatives, plus when comparing the regular jar baby food to Sprout Foods Organic Baby Food I feel I am getting my moneys worth in nutrition, and convenience. I also loved the fact that with this small change in my baby's food, I am in turn helping the environment.

I would recommend this food to anyone! I am so very pleased with this food that I decided to switch my son over to the Sprout Foods Organic baby food exclusively. I placed an order for a 2 months supply on Wednesday and I was worried about what I was going to be able to get my son to eat until the order arrived, but that isn't a problem now because they arrived today, Friday!

I also learned that SproutBaby.com has a SproutBaby Club which is a customizable delivery program where you receive a monthly shipment of Sprout Foods organic baby food in quantities. When you sign up, you select the number of pouches of food you’d like each month in the recipes that your child enjoys, and they make sure you get your order of baby food on a monthly basis. That's good for your baby and the environment too. How cool is that? By joining the SproutBaby Club you also get discounts on the food too since you are buy in quantity.

SproutBaby.com isn't just a great place to order organic baby food, they also carry products from other Earth-Friendly manufacturers of baby products for Health Care, Bathing, Skin Care, Germs & Allergy, Gas & Colic Relief, and even Wipes.
