JC follows a baby led weaning approach and didn't eat many purées when he first started weaning but we have always used fruit packs as a top up for him to accompany his breakfast cereal or as a dessert after dinner. I really like the Ella's Kitchen packs compared to jars as they are much more convenient, you don't even need a bowl, just pop it straight onto a spoon or older children can enjoy it straight from the pack. I recently took fruit puree packs abroad with me to get me through the first few days and the Ella's Kitchen packaging was perfect as it was so light, I didn't have to worry about my luggage allowance!
Here is a video of JC trying out the fruit packs. You can tell by his face that he approves!
Ella's Kitchen First Taste fruit pouches are 100% organic and contain just 1 single fruit, nothing else. They come in 4 flavours (pear, banana, mango and apple). The 70g packs are available from Sainsbury's, Boots, Ocado and Tesco stores and they cost 69p per pouch.
- Convenient packaging
- Single fruit ideal for first tastes, allergies or fussy fruit eaters
- 100% organic puts your mind at ease that the best available ingredients have been used
- The price is reasonable, not cheaper that puréeing the fruit yourself but much less effort and time
- I don't really see any disadvantages but I think that the 70g packs are more suitable for younger children. JC would need 2 of them really or a bigger pouch. However, I do like this size for his breakfast cereal.
Disclaimer - I was not paid to write this review and although I received 2 pouches to sample, this did not taint my opinion of the product.
