Mummy reviewer series: Baby led spreads

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

In today’s post I share a recent review we were kindly invited to do on behalf of Baby led spreads.

We are quite far along on our weaning journey now and Bubba is able to feed herself most foods at 17 months old.

It is important for me to provide her with foods which encourage her to feed herself but that are also naturally delicious and healthy.

I love that Baby led spreads contain no artificial preservatives as well as offering a range of exciting flavours and textures derived from natural ingredients.

We were lucky enough to try the following flavours:

Green pea, rocket and dill

Avocado, red pepper and tomato

Carrot, apple and hummus

Ricotta and bean

Spicy pumpkin and chickpea

Red lentil and sweet potato

As you can see each flavour offers your baby a taste sensation and encourages them to try unusual flavours in a familiar texture.

Bubba absolutely loves pasta so we were thrilled to see that baby led spreads can be used as an alternative to pasta sauce.

She enjoyed the ricotta and bean spread as a spaghetti sauce and happily ate slices of apple spread with the carrot, apple and hummus jar.

As parents, Thrifty Dadda and I enjoyed experimenting and giving Bubba different dinners in inventive ways.

In fact, the Baby led spreads website offers a variety of easy to follow recipe ideas for busy parents to try.

Stored in small jars, we found half of one small jar was enough for one meal time which made the spreads last even longer.

With Autumn setting in, this week we have enjoyed the spicy pumpkin and chickpea spread on toast for a delicious snack.

Overall, we really enjoyed the variety of flavours and ease of use that Baby led spreads provided. They are a brilliant store cupboard staple and at only £7.50 for 9 jars we thought they offered good value for money in comparison to other baby foods currently available.
