My friend Nancy introduced Miss H to Ella's Kitchen products about a month ago. Hannah absolutely loves them, which works out great for me! At her last doctor's appointment it was discovered that H is anemic. The doctor said to give her eggs, spinach and baby cereal five times a week. H will tolerate eggs, and only eat spinach if it is mixed with something else. Baby cereal...well, it's just boring. While reading the back of the Ella's pouches I discovered that there are a few with 45% iron! Woo Hoo! A quick, easy, nutritious food/snack that baby loves. Hannah's favorite seems to be the purple pouch (sweet potatoes, pumpkins, apples and blueberries). I've been stocking up particularly on the iron rich varieties lately because it's a win-win option in this house.
I love the fact that these are organic and introduce children to veggies that are not always household favorites. Really, when is the last time you cooked pumpkin or parsnips for your child? I know I've never done it. But now that I know she likes some of these foods I'll be adding them to my shopping list.
