I was recently asked by Quinola Mothergrain if I wanted to try some baby food with Logan and after looking at their website I jumped at the chance.
Quinola Molthergrain is an organic baby food, which is vegan and gluten free. It is also high in protein, ideal for growing babies. The fact that it was gluten free was very important to me as during my pregnancy I became gluten intolerant and continue to follow a gluten free diet where possible. This is when I first discovered quinoa and it continues to be an everyday essential for me.
We received 2 flavours; carrot, red lentils and quinoa, and sweet potato, beetroot and quinoa. Both of these are from the 6 month + range.
We tried the sweet potato mix first as this sounded the nicest to me. They were really quick and easy to heat, taking either 30 secs in the microwave or 1 min in boiling water. It took Logan a few mouthfuls to get used to it and then he gobbled it down with lots of lip-smacking and yummy noises.
We tried the carrot mix the next day and again he loved it. I even had to give him his own spoon as I couldn’t feed him quick enough. Curiosity got the better of me and I did try some and enjoyed both flavours.
The pouches hold a good amount of food, allowing for 2 good sized portions, especially at 6 months. I would have liked if they were resealable for when you are out and about.
I really like the fact that this is a thick and textured baby food. It means that he gets used to different textures and when he tries to feed himself it stays on the spoon, making less mess. I am waiting for a dipping set to arrive and will be testing them together to see how he gets on.
You can find more information on Quinola Mothergrain on their website quinolababy.com, or follow them on Twitter @QuinolaUK and Facebook . They have other flavours available and ranges for 8 months and 10 months, and the website has links to a list of stockists. I will certainly be placing an order for some more of these soon.
