Mathilde has been eating solids for over two months now. Twice a day, lunch and dinner, my hungry little piggy guzzles down a bowl of mushy food. Apples, custard, rice cereal, pumpkin, peas, kale... we're yet to find a single thing she won't eat!
I'm so glad that Mathilde is such a good eater but I've got to be honest, I was not looking forward to starting her on solids. It wasn't the mess that I dreaded (she's actually pretty neat and can usually get away without wearing a bib) but rather the fact that it meant another thing to add to the never ending list of tasks throughout my day.
I'm pretty good at multitasking while I'm nursing Mathilde (most of my blog posts are written while I'm nursing and I've found myself brushing my teeth and applying makeup in the morning with Mathilde on the boob more than once!) but feeding her a bowl of food really requires my full attention and a lot more time. With two other kids vying for said attention and a day packed full of activities, Mathilde's meal time is often a rushed affair. Plus she has an uncanny knack of waking from her morning nap hungry and ready for lunch right at the time we need to leave to pick Lola up from preschool.
That's when baby food in a squeezy pouch is a life saver. No need for a bowl and spoon. After a little trial and error Mathilde has worked out how to feed herself from a squeezy pouch without making too much mess. Mathilde can feed herself as I push the stroller which is fantastic as we're always on the go. I always make sure to keep a few pouches in my handbag for lunches when we're out and about.
Peter Rabbit Organics pouches tick all of the boxes on my list. Each pouch contains the goodness of fruit and vegetables and nothing else. No added sugar, no added preservatives and nothing artificial. Each pouch contains just what it says on the label. The Kale, Broccoli & Mango pouch? It contains kale, broccoli and mango. The Raspberry, Banana and Blueberry pouch? You guessed it. It contains raspberry, banana and blueberry. That's it.
Peter Rabbit Organics pouches are made from BPA free plastic and feature a large no-choke cap, which is great, because I just know it's going to go straight into Mathilde's mouth!
Peter Rabbit Organics squeezy pouches are also "Big Sister approved". Both Ava and Lola are always keen to help out as much as possible with Mathilde and feeding her is their absolute favorite big sister job. However, neither of them has mastered the skill of getting a spoonful of baby food into Mathilde's mouth before her grabby little hands can take over and make a mess! With squeezy pouches Ava and Lola have much more control when they help feed Mathilde. Everyone stays cleaner and the food actually makes it to Mathilde's mouth.
Peter Rabbit Organics make a great on the go snack for older kids too. Lola is much fussier than her little sister but she's quite keen on these, especially the Strawberry & Banana and Raspberry, Banana & Blueberry flavors. She's a berry loving girl.
