My daughter now eats most things that we do, however when it comes to desserts I don't like to give her anything with too much sugar in so I normally give her half a jar of baby food. I bought several different Hipp jars in Tesco and I just picked random desserts to try and see how we went. The jars cost 65p each or they are 10 jars for £5.
A jar contains 125g or dessert. This jar is aimed at stage 1 weaning for 4 months and over. The ingredients are listed as; Apples, apple juice, blueberries, concentrated apple juice and ground rice. The jar is organic and doesn't contain any preservatives.
Each jar contains 1 portion of fruit.
When you open the jar the main smell is apples. I wasn't too keen on the taste of this, it reminds me of a compote it is really thick and I find it a little rich. My daughter however really likes this, she will easily eat half a jar for her dessert. It has a nice consistency as there is a little rice in the jar to thicken it up. I tend to spoon out half of the jar and then refrigerate the rest where it can be kept for 24 hours.
The only problem with this dessert is the colour, I would definately not recommend taking it out to feed your baby on a day out as it is purple and stains everything it touches. I learnt that the hard way after I couldn't get the stains out of my daughters babygrow.
This is a good dessert though and I would buy it again.
This Hipp organic dessert is REALLY tasty! It tastes alot like jam but obviously does not contain as much sugar.It contains 95% organice fruit, the other ingredients being concentrated apple juice with reduced acid, organic ground rice and antioxidants. It does taste quite sweet so i limit my little boy to half a jar but he could he a full one no problem at all! So could I actually haha!
The only one main problem with this pudding is the colour of it, which results in major stains on my little boys clothes, which seem impossible to get out. The only way i will give him this pudding is covering him with bibs and stuff i do not mind getting stained, he also has his plastic bib on with this pudding, which usually manages to catch any drips meaning i can just wipe the bib clean. The stains this pudding leaves means he does not get it very often and i dont look forward to giving him it!
A blend of apples, apple juice, blueberries and rice.
