Baby Gourmet: Organic, Convenient, BPA-Free Baby Food

BG_product_shot.jpeg
In an ideal world, parents would have time to make their infant's and toddler's baby food from scratch.  Actually, it's not that hard to do if you eat whole foods yourself.  Baby can eat what you eat if you follow a simple diet; however, we don't live in an ideal world.

Even stay-at-home parents need the convenience of prepared baby food, and you better make it organic and contained BPA-free packaging for optimum baby health.


We were sent samples of Baby Gourmet:

Healthy, organic, and nutritious food for babies (6-12mo) made by moms with a little ingenuity. With all products starting in owners, Jen's and Jill's kitchens, each recipe and batch thereafter is taste-tested and poured out if it's not absolutely loved. Creative recipes include:
6mo - Simple Purees

  • Harvest Pear, Pumpkin, and Banana

  • Juicy Pear and Garden Greens

  • Orchard Apple, Carrot Prune


7mo - Yummy Combos

  • Baby's Sweet Potato Pie

  • Roasted Squash and Fruit Medley

  • Apple, Sweet Potato Berry Swirl


8mo+ - Tasty Textures

  • Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

  • Vanilla Banana Berry Risotto

  • Tropical Banana Bliss


All products are organic, no salt, sugar, fillers, preservatives, no nuts. No dairy, except in Old Fashioned Apple Crisp. Packaged in in a specially designed pouch allows for less cooking time, locking in nutrient values and flavors.

All ingredients are organic with the exception of the ascorbic acid.

Unfortunately, the BPA-free packaging is not recyclable, but it does make for easy heating.  Personally, I like baby food jars. They are very handy to reuse for multiple purposes, but I would assume the lids on them contain BPA, as most canning jars lids do.

As much as I aspired to always make my own baby food and freeze extras, I did resort to store bought baby food on occasion, especially when traveling.  Baby Gourmet is a good option, and I trust the product's safety and quality, especially since it is made in Canada.

I like that Baby Gourmet is very organic (not just one or two ingredients), but I do wish the packages were recyclable.  I also like how they have recipes where you can incorporate the baby food with solids to help transition children.

Disclosure: The products described above were sent to us as free samples. Prior assurances as to the nature of the reviews, whether positive or negative, were not given. No financial payments were accepted in exchange for the reviews. The reviews reflect our honest, authentic opinions.
