Sprout Organic Baby Food

Sprout Baby Food Feeding

I encourage my son to play with his food.  Yes, you read that right.  As much as it goes against every fiber of my body I force myself to help my son play with his food.  He has sensory issues…food issues…and food allergies.  All of that combined equals a toddler who still takes a bottle more than he eats food.  He sees a therapist weekly and starting next month he’ll see two separate therapists weekly to help him eat food.

Sigh.  All the planning and preparation is tiring.  Mentally exhausting.  I want him to succeed like all moms want their kids to succeed so I press on.  I’ll let him practice with different sized cups, spoons, cold foods, warm foods, crunchy foods, and squishy foods.

Sprout Organic Baby Food Pouch

My son will eat one brand of puffs, one variety of veggie straws, bits of (soy-free and milk-free) bread, crackers, coconut milk yogurt, pizza crust, and pouches of baby food.  That’s allllllll he will eat.  He won’t drink water or juice.  Besides his bottle, the pouches of food are his only source of liquids.  They’re also the only veggies and fruit he’ll consume so I buy them in bulk.  The Sprout brand is my brand of choice because I trust that they use are real, honest ingredients.  My sweet son won’t eat much but that means that what he does eat is even more important.

Sprout Pouches

I love that he’ll drink the pouches on his own.  It makes eating on the go so nice.  Plus, the Sprout brand flavors are so good that if my son doesn’t like one, my preschool daughter will.  No waste, I love it!

Sweet Kids

My kids are growing up so fast and I want to give them the best nutrition I can.  If you have little kiddos, what’s their favorite flavors?  My son loves Sprout’s Pear, Kiwi, Peas, and Spinach.

Innocence, Honesty, and Sprout Organic Baby Food

Kids on Firetruck

My grandmother and great aunt are visiting me this week.  We’ve had so much fun together!  I was very close to them when I was growing up and I cherish any time my kids can spend with them.  Oh, how I wish they didn’t live so far away!  Today, we all went shopping.  My daughter’s favorite part of shopping with my family is the quarter rides.  I never buy the rides for them…because my grandmother taught me better than to waste money on such things…but apparently, she has forgotten this. 🙂  My daughter has enjoyed their generosity for a few years but this was my son’s first trip to this store.  Check out his face in this picture!  He’s overjoyed and they didn’t even add the quarters yet!

I hope my kid’s will always be so innocent and enjoy the simple, pure, and little things in life.

I love pure and simple things.  Books.  Sunshine.  Fruit.  Organic food.  We’re not a strictly organic family, but I do enjoy knowing that family is eating wholesomely. I heard about Sprout’s Organic Food years ago before I had kids and checked into it.  From what I read I was hooked.  Natural, pure, ingredients.  I wanted this for my kids.  Today we were running low on baby food so I headed to Harris Teeter to grab some more Sprout pouches.  Harris Teeter is one of Sprout’s retailers, so if you head out to Wal-Mart you sadly won’t find it there. It’s worth the special trip for me because 1) Harris Teeter has amazing sushi and 2) because caring for my family is essential.  Besides, their shopping cards are a-maz-ing!  Build in cup holders – you know they added those for moms who are juggling multiple kids while simultaneously sipping something caffeinated, shopping, and preparing a week’s worth of menus in her head!

Harris Teeter

I went to the baby food section and found my favorite baby food there…the holy grail of baby food, some might say.  It was easy to locate.

Sprout Organic Baby Food

Sprout touts (did you like that intentional rhyme?) USDA certified organic ingredients and non GMO. The flavor names are honest because they actually match the ingredients lists. Shocker. And it’s the only baby and toddler food brand that doesn’t use acid preservatives that can upset baby’s system.  Which is huge for me since my sweet son is allergic to so much and I don’t want food to adversely affect him in any way. Also, A biggie for me – the packaging is free from BPA. I hate the stuff.Sprout Baby Food
