Sprout Organic Baby Food Review and Giveaway

If you are new to organic food or are just starting to switch over to organic foods, one place you want to for sure start switching immediately is your baby and children's food products. Little ones can't eliminate toxins as efficiently as we can. In fact, studies have shown as much as 6 times the levels of pesticides in the urine of children fed conventional diets versus children fed organic diets, and in a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the pesticide levels in children were twice that in adults eating a similar diet.

That is why I love supporting companies like Sprout Organic Baby Foods. Their products contain 100% organic ingredients, and they are committed to helping you feed your little ones the best food possible. Have you heard of Tyler Florence, the long time Food Network chef? He is the co-founder of Sprout Baby Foods and a father himself.

Sprout has a wide variety of products to meet your children's needs from starter foods to advanced meals. And one thing that really sets them apart from other companies is their delicious ingredients and recipes that will delight your little one's taste buds and introduce them to a whole host of new and varied ingredients. For instance, some of their advanced meals are Minestrone with Beans and Greens, which includes garbanzo beans, zucchini, kale, onion, basil and more. I also love the Curried Red Lentils and Glaze Carrots with Jasmine Rice. Doesn't that sound delicious? It makes you want to go eat some baby food, right? In that meal, there are mangos, red lentils, coconut milk, garlic, ginger and more!

Curried Red Lentils & Glazed Carrots with Jasmine Rice


Personally, I want my baby to eat foods of such varied textures, flavors and colors. As a home cook, I use all those ingredients in my normal cooking, so to introduce them to my daughter at a young age is perfect for her to get used to the wonderful ingredients she will be eating for many years to come.

Since my daughter is just starting with baby food, she is eating their Starter single ingredient meals right now. These include Roasted Pears, Roasted Bananas, Roasted Apples, Roasted Butternut Squash, Baked Sweet Potatoes and Sweet Peas. They all look and taste amazing. (Yes, even I have tasted them) I think my daughter's favorite is the roasted pears or baked sweet potatoes. Yum!

Baked Sweet Potatoes

And you might want to note that Tyler Florence just came out with a fabulous cookbook for children's food called, "Start Fresh: Your Child's Jump Start To Lifelong Healthy Eating." That would be another useful addition to your kitchen.

Another thing I have to mention about Sprout is their innovative packaging. They are the original baby food in a pouch.  It is a more eco-friendly choice, BPA free, resealable, and they work with Terracycle to upcycle! I love that! Sprout Organic Baby Foods are available nationwide at local retailers and online, so head on over and check out all their flavors and options for your happy, healthy children!

Plus, today we are giving away (10) free pouch coupons to (1) lucky lucky winner to pick out your favorite Sprout foods at a local store near you! Yay!
