Plum Organics. I’m a fan. I’ve reviewed a few of their organic baby and toddler foods for Boutique Cafe’s Daily Dish and I don’t recall having anything negative to say. Organic, delicious, easy—what’s not to like?
Today I bring you the latest in their lineup of healthy, organic baby food products: Super Puffs. Here’s why Plum Organics calls these little snacks “super”:
- Made from real fruits & veggies
- Whole grains
- USDA certified organic
- Delightful flavors
- Lightweight packaging (and it fits in cup holder)
- BPA-free, recyclable container
Super Puffs come in five bright colors and flavors: blueberry & purple sweet potato; spinach & apple; banana & peach; strawberry & beet; mango & sweet potato.
We busted open the strawberry & beet flavor at home and Livi dove right in:
She enjoyed munching on those for a bit and also liked the banana & peach, but since those first couple days, they’ve remained untouched in the pantry. I’m thinking it’s because she’s no longer a baby and prefers string cheese, tortilla chips and vanilla yogurt to Super Puffs. Due to the fact she’s not the target market for Super Puffs, I gave a few containers to a friend’s daughter who had a 7-month-old baby girl. Here’s her take on Plum Organics Super Puffs:
Taste Tester Info:
Morgan Kate was 7 mo. old when she tried them and had no teeth. She was strictly on breast milk and small amounts of rice cereal and first foods vegetables baby food. She had only recently tried a rice type cookie wafer. She sat up easily and was beginning to get up on all fours and go from sitting to crawling position but wasn’t actually crawling.Like:
Love that it’s organic and low in sugar.
Didn’t make a mess all over her face and bib
Nice coloring but didn’t seem to stain anything
Didn’t seem to pose any kind of choking risk (she would not have given her Cheerios or rice puffs cereal; she felt better that these were designed for babies)
She was more interested in playing with them than eating them.
The ones she put in her mouth she kind of rolled around at the tip of her tongue and they often fell out of her mouth.
She seemed to want to put them in her mouth only because they were there, not because she was hungry or liked the taste.
Quite bland—not worse than any other product in this category but not sure if an older child would eat them
Didn’t contain any fiber or huge nutritional value so wasn’t sure they would supplement baby food.
Would she buy them?
Possibly when Morgan Kate was a month older. It would also depend on cost because so far she just pushed most of them on the floor.
So there you have it! Overall I think Super Puffs is one of the best choices in snack finger foods for babies. They are organic, healthy and packed with vitamins, plus they’re portable, lightweight and easier to clean up than Arrowroot cookies!—Emily
