is one of a number of baby food
brands on the market that makes a range of organic foods
for babies, toddlers and children.
The Organix philosophy
is that all baby food should be tasty
and offer the best nutrition
. They claim to use the best organically grown
ingredients, cooked simply to ensure optimum taste
and nutrition. They also go one step
further and never add
artificial colourings, preservatives, artificial flavourings
or processed sugars to any of their baby food.
This is a philosophy
that I and many mums have no problem
buying into. My preference
is to give Eva home-cooked
meals, but there are times where for speed or convenience
, it is useful to have ready-made
foods in the house.
I had tried a couple of Organix meals
in the past, and found that although I liked the clearly labelled
packaging and the ingredients
, the meals did not quite deliver
on flavour compared with my favourite brand.
So when Organix
brought out some new flavours
, I had to try them.
The Sweet Potato, Pear & Pea
was a nice combination, and despite being aimed at younger babies
, went down very well with Eva. The Spinach and Salmon Risotto
was a good texture
for older babies and also tasty
. Unfortunately the Pasta with Aubergine and Red Pepper
was a little on the bland
side, although Eva ate it up
quite happily nonetheless.
Organix is more reasonably priced
than some brands and I would certainly buy
them again to add a bit more variety to Eva's store cupboard
