I’ve been so proud of Jake on his journey with the HiPP Organic Wean Team so far – he has taken to enjoying food like a duck to water. He is so capable with finger foods now, and with his adorable two little teeth at the bottom he is finding it easier to bite larger pieces. Whenever we spoon-feed him we can’t get it in fast enough! I’m finding he is gagging a lot less too as he gains more control over his swallowing.
Some of the the first foods Jake loved when we started weaning, and still does, were fruit purees and baby porridge – tasty, manageable to eat, and easy to digest for little tummies. Now HiPP Organic have combined the two into their fab new range of porridge pouches, perfect for a no-fuss breakfast for babies over 6 months. We were sent some to try and it’s safe to say they went down very well!
The new HiPP Organic porridge pouches come in three tasty flavours: Pear, Apple and Apricot Porridge; Apple and Peach Porridge; and Fruity Porridge, which contains a variety of different fruits. Jake always enjoys his fruit so he wolfed his way through all three flavours quite happily. The oats in the porridge help to make the pouch more filling than a simple fruit puree would be, so are ideal as a breakfast, but Jake also enjoyed them as ‘pudding’ after his main meals. They are completely smooth too so no chewing involved for new weaners.
To ensure the best taste for babies, HiPP select special varieties of fruits and vegetables which are naturally low in acid content and high in nutrients. To ensure optimum flavour they are given time to ripen naturally and harvested at their plumpest & sweetest.
We were also sent a couple of boxes of the brilliant new HiPP cereals for little ones aged over 15 months. Jake isn’t quite ready to try these yet but Joe had a go and may yet be turned from his usual Cheerios and Rice Krispies! The two new products in the toddler cereal range are Fruity O’s and Fruity Muesli with Crispy Ducks (not of the pancake and hoi sin sauce variety!). These new cereals contain no added sugar (just naturally occurring sugars) and are packed full of organic fruit and multigrain. I’m sure Jake will love them when he has a few more teeth!
Both the HiPP Organic porridge pouches and toddler cereals will be available in Tesco from 1st June. The porridge pouches can also be found in Waitrose from 13th June. Find out more about the new products from HiPP Organic as well as the rest of the range on their website.
