One of the benefits of blogging is that we’re often asked to test products. Since Joe and I don’t fit the right demographic for baby food, I turned to the only member of our family who qualifies: our grandson, Carter. I was delighted when Carter’s mom, Megan, agreed to test Baby Gourmet Organic Baby Food on her firstborn child. Megan and her husband, Kyle, won’t give Carter food they haven’t tried themselves, so we were fortunate to get the opinions of their entire family. Here’s what Megan had to say about their experience with Baby Gourmet. ~ Julia Wasson, Publisher

We really enjoyed the Baby Gourmet Organic Baby Food. Kyle and I tried a little of each kind of the food, and we were happily surprised with the great taste. Each variety had lots of flavor and a nice consistency, with a little more chunkiness than other brands we’ve tried.

Baby Gourmet also has so much more taste than the generic, non-organic foods we usually feed Carter. I also really liked that we could see and taste actual chunks of food. The chunks were very small, so they were baby-safe.

Carter LOVED the baby apple crisp food the best (although he ate all the other flavors just as well). He would smile with each bite of the apple crisp. We could smell and taste the apples and cinnamon in that flavor—it was like real apple crisp!

The bright packaging was appealing, and the style of the packaging is very user friendly. I could twist the cap back on and know that none of the food was going to spill out if I packed it to go. The other brands with plastic snap-on lids always leak in my diaper bag.

I am assuming this brand of baby food is compatible with the spoon piece that you can screw on for an “on-the-go” feeding spoon, but we don’t have one of those, so we were never able to try that out.

The thing I liked the most about this product was that it was organic. Although I am not sure exactly how much this brand costs [Editor's note: Our samples were provided free by the company], we don’t normally buy organic because of the price.

We don’t have a picky eater, and Carter has yet to turn down any food. So, we don’t feel like we have to buy the more expensive baby food just so he will like the taste. But I do wish we could afford to buy everything organic (for both him and ourselves!).

We really enjoyed getting to try out Baby Gourmet ORGANIC Baby Food!
