SANTA BABY: Sprout Baby Food

Photobucket
I thought that since Santa Baby's 1st Christmas begins today,
the week of Thanksgiving,
I'd kick it off with a baby food review and giveaway!

Here we are, adults, able to eat all of the yummy Holiday foods, while our babies get the same old, everyday flavors they're so used to. Well, those are the ways of the past! I'd like to introduce Sprout Baby Food! With flavors like Roasted Pears & Apricots, Oatmeal with Roasted Cinnamin Applesauce, and Baked Sweet Potatoes & White Beans no baby will eye our "adult" food with envy ever again!

A little about Sprout from it's co-founder Tyler Florence:
"My wife Tolan and I want our children to eat food that is wholesome and delicious, but like most parents, we have careers and busy lives. So as a father, I'm always thinking about what I want my children to eat and how I can treat them to the healthy and delicious meals they deserve...even when time is an issue.

My longtime friend Max and I put our heads together to try and create a new food product for babies that would help parents make easy and smart decisions for their children. We looked at everything from the packaging and presentation to how the food was cooked and of course, the ingredients themselves. As a chef, I focused on complimentary food combinations and ways to cook them to bring out all of the gorgeous natural flavors inside. With thousands more taste buds than even adults have, babies love great taste. And with Sprout, we are determined to give them the flavors they crave.

Sprout Baby Food is the result of many years of research, development and most importantly, fatherhood. And I know that you and your baby will agree that my love of food and flavor comes through in every delicious bite."
We received a few pouches of Sprout Baby Food for review purposes. Our pouches included the Baked Sweet Potatoes & White Beans, Summer Squash Yukon Gold Potatoes & Parmesan, and Roasted Bananas & Brown Rice, among a few others.

We broke them out for Caden to eat right away. Who could resist the immediate temptation when they even sounded better than our own dinner? Caden loved every single package of Sprout Baby Food we tried. He practically inhaled them! One package of food was definitely a meal sized serving. The only thing that I disliked was how hard it was to get the baby food out of the corners of the package. When you have a whiney hungry baby "yelling" at you, it's kind of an annoyance to have to dig around to fill the spoon. On the other hand, the package is PERFECT for traveling or use while out and about. I loved that I didn't have to worry about a jar breaking and that I could reseal it if it was not all used.
Overall I really enjoyed my Sprout Baby Food experience
and look forward to using their baby food often in the future!
