Summer Moments with HiPP Organic

This month on the HiPP Organic Wean Team has been especially fun, largely because we’ve been on our holidays! Almost as soon as school was out we jetted off to Majorca for Jake’s first family trip abroad, and it’s safe to say he had a whale of a time.

We had been a bit unsure how he would cope with the flight, the heat, and the ‘different’ food but he embraced everything like a pro, and even tried a few (sort of) exotic flavours from Spanish cuisine. Of course his favourites from the hotel buffet still consisted of potato, in whatever form it came in, pasta, and chocolate buttons from the ice cream counter.

Jake had his own little place setting in the hotel restaurant – not that he’s quite mastered cutlery yet!

For snacks between meals he loved munching on bananas and the little individually wrapped fairy cakes we purloined at breakfast each morning.

Back at home, now he has turned 1, Jake is getting stuck into some new HiPP goodies. Mums and dads are always so busy, so it’s good to know that HiPP Organic has a wide range of organic tray meals for little ones aged 12 months+. HiPP work hand in hand with nature, encouraging wildlife onto their farmland to act as natural pest control. This allows their produce to grow as naturally as possible without harmful pesticides.


Joe loved the toddler tray meals when he was little so we knew they would be a hit with Jake. I was really pleased to see we could still get Joe’s old favourite, the Scrumptious Lasagne, which Jake has been really enjoying too. We are yet to try the HiPP Organic Magic Number Pasta in a creamy pumpkin sauce, which is designed to help your little one learn new skills and have some fun at the same time. It might not be cooking from scratch but they are fantastic for a quick and nutritious lunch or dinner when you’re short of time.

Enjoying our #SummerMoments in the garden

HiPP sent us a gorgeous soft picnic blanket to enjoy some summer moments outside, but before we went away the North East weather was questionable to say the least! Jake did enjoy some time in the garden with big brother Joe and some play sand though, and hopefully we’ll be able to have a proper picnic at some point during the next few weeks!
