Weaning has always been the biggest worry for me, the 7 years since I had my first child things have changed, back then it was porridge for the first taste, do it when they seem ready blah blah blah..
These days however, everything is different.. we are now recommended to start the weaning journey around the 6 month mark and to introduce vegetables straight away rather than boring porridge which I can understand.. it allows the baby to gain a taste for all things healthy rather than processed stuff.
So Ella’s Kitchen provides a helping hand for mums with little time to cook up things every day, like me, I am a mum of three, plus I have a house to run and a cat to prevent ripping up things.
We started in the beginning of this weaning journey trying out the banana and the pea packets to much of Robins disgust, she wasn’t ready at all for weaning even at six months old, so after a few worried weeks we tried again and she loved every minute of it.
The first stage pouches are smooth and perfect for little mouths and bellies that are used to only milk and once she got the hang of it we moved her onto the lumpier pouches.
Her personal favorite is Jamaican Curried Pork, which if I am honest smells lovely! and I am really pleased how well it seems to go down, coming from a baby who at first really didn’t enjoy food, to now running into the kitchen and shouting ‘Mmmm’ at her highchair which I consider a plus!
The best thing about Ella’s Kitchen is that they are made from real ingredients, not saying other ready made baby food isn’t made from real stuff, its that Ella’s Kitchen are extremely proud of their pouches and other bits and it makes me relax in the knowledge that whats going into my children aren’t nasty chemicals but good organic meat and veg!
We are just about to head onto more lumpier food as Robin was late to the game with weaning, and I am sure I will continue to use Ella’s Kitchen in the months to come, they are friendly and easy to use with the instructions on how to warm up right on the packet.
I recommend Ella’s Kitchen to everyone I talk to about weaning and baby food, jars and pouches aren’t bad at all and can help greatly in busy homes such as mine when time often gets away with you.
So please, go grab some when you next see them in the stores, they have a wonderful fruit range too that I have yet to try out but I think I may add them to my list next week.
