      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Rich in protein.

      Cow & Gate Baby Balance Beef Stroganoff comes in the usual colourless jar. The baby food in it has pale carrot colour. The jar contains 200 g baby food.


      First impressions
      ------------------------
      This baby food is available in Tesco but not in Sainsbury's. I bought 8 jars for 4.50 pounds. Its individual price is 75 pence.
      This baby food belongs to the Baby Balance category and is a Stage 2 baby food which means that it is suitable from the age of 7 months. The jar is of medium size so I think most 7 month babies can't eat it all. I like that the jars can be closed back and by keeping them in the fridge we can store it for 24 hours.
      For long time now this was one of the baby foods that slightly differed from the average. When I opened the jar I felt the appetising beef smell and not carrot or tomato. Don't be afraid this baby food contains both of them but finally they don't dominate the whole meal.


      Taste and texture
      ----------------------
      This baby food had finally meat taste. I could definitely say that it is made of beef. There are small vegetable pieces in it too that are overcooked so it is easy to swallow them and can learn chewing the little pieces. Actually the meet can be seen in the food as well. It has a harmonic sweet which finally differs from the carrot and tomato tasted baby foods. My son loved its texture. It is not too thick and not too thin most of the ingredients were mashed in it. You can feed your baby with it easily if the taste meets your baby's expectations.


      Ingredients and nutritional information
      --------------------------------------------------

      This baby food is free from artificial colour, artificial flavours and from gluten. 100 g baby food contains 71 kcal. Its protein content is 3.9%, the carbohydrate content is 9.8%, the fat content is 1.8% and the fibre content is 1.6%.


      Serving suggestions
      --------------------------
      I like that this baby food is in jar as you can put it in hot water, put it on the radiator, in the microwave oven or in baby food heater to get it warm. I don't think this food is really good when it is cold.

      If you know for sure that your baby will eat maximum half of the food it is worth getting out half of the baby food from the jar not to heat the whole quantity.


      My opinion
      ----------------
      This baby food is delicious and contains red meat rich in protein. It has slightly different taste to the average baby food and I would say it is really tasty. The vegetables and the beef are in perfect harmony so the food disappeared quite quickly at us. I don't really understand why Sainsbury's doesn't keep this baby food. Anyway it is a good one I will buy occasionally for my son. I try to give him what I cook for ourselves but when he doesn't like it I return to the baby food. It is convenient to have a few jars at home although I agree that on the long run they are not very cheap. I try to buy them when they are on offer and my son eats 2-3 jars a week. There is such a great variety of them.
