“ Brand: Cow & Gate / Age: 6 months „
I dont feed my son jars on a regular basis. When I was first weaning him we did a few weeks of jars which was pretty expensive but I wasn't confident to make my own. I then invested in a blender and have since made my own. However if I am out for the day I will buy a jar to take with me as this takes the stress out of what I can and can't pack.
Tyler isnt a big fan of my roast dinners! Im a bit hesitant to add much gravy (unless I have bought some baby gravy) as I worry about the salt content. This roast dinner jar however is quickly swallowed down.
This particuarl jar is stage two so we havent used it for quite a while although the fact it isn't stage three wouldnt stop me buying it if it was the only thing I thought he'd like in a selection.
Stage two is the basically the second stage of weaning food- it tends to be less smooth than stage 1, perhaps with the odd lump and usually a bit more flavour. Stage two is reccomend for babies 7 months and up.
I can't tell you if it really does taste like a sunday lunch as I dont wish to try the food myself but Tyler certainly likes it! It contains turkey, carrot, potato, onion, swede, tomato and peas.
The jar it comes in is glass so you can see what the mixture looks like and the lid of the jar has a picture of a turkey lid. This can be useful if you do use lots of jars and want to pick out meals easily. These jars tend to have a long shelf life but always check the date before you purchase, just today my friend was complaining to me as she had purchased some jars a couple of days ago and it turns out two out of the three jars she picked up had expired back in December (a month ago!). These jars tend to cost between 50-70p, asda and tesco often have multibuy deals with these jars though so if you use jars it is cheaper to make use of those offers.
I wouldn't go as far as saying this is as good as a homemade meal for your baby as with homemade you made it and there are no preservatives (theres something not quite right about meat that can have such a long shelf life despite not being chillled!). However these are nutritious enough and handy for days out, short stays with relatives and to have as back up in the cupboard for those days where you need to grab a meal quickly!
Uhhr i just wrote this review and the internet crashed, so here I go again, it probaly wont be as good as before
Grandma's Sunday Lunch, stage 2!!
Stage 2, what is it?
Stage two is the follow on for the babies first foods, and is mostly mashed with some small bits, it is normally for ages 7 months and above, however I gave this to my baby when he was 6 months as the smaller ones just didn't fill him up.
Grandma's sunday lunch is full of flavour and really does taste like a sunday dinner. It is full of goodness for your child and contains carrot, potato, onion, swede, turkey, tomato and peas.
The meal itself does not have any added preservatives, sugar, flavourings, milke, lactose and is gluten free however this meal does contain wheat.
The jar that is comes in is glass and holds 200g's of food. The meal has a yellow lid on the top with a picture of a turkey leg, which is great for when your picking a meal from the cupboard, so you dont give them a similar food twice in one day. The jars tend to have a large shelf life and the jar I have at the moment is dated until 2011, so if there is an offer on then you can stock up.
The jars normally cost 60pish each however you can get a variety of meals (10 for 5 pounds) in asda at the moment.
Overall a really good meal for your child, full of goodness and the whole jar is only 140 calories!! great
