~ Personal Experience ~
If you want a nice smelling baby food then this isn't for your baby as it does smell of dirty sweaty socks. The product itself smells just how I would expect it to smell, but the ingredients and flavour is excellent and of a high quality although I wont be going anywhere near it any time soon.
My little boy enjoys this but sometimes he does turn his nose up at it, I think it's the smell but maybe he just isn't in the mood for this type of savoury food. The packaging is of a high quality and sometimes my wife finds it hard to pull the lids of but I think she is a bit of a weakling.
The jar we bought was for stage 1 which is designed for the of weaning your child onto food. Our little man prefers the HIPP jars rather than the Cow and Gate jars which is weird I know but he prefers these food jars, especially the Carbonara flavoured jar.
The hardest part of feeding our boy is that he gets so easily distracted and now that he has learnt to shake his head as if to say no he does this at first when we try to feed him but once you give him a taste he is ready to gobble it all up.
~ Advantages of having jarred food ~
Well the main one for us would the ability to transfer food around with us whilst we are on the move or out at a park and he gets hungry. We just feed him straight out of the jar if need be, yes it can be a bit cold but in an emergency it comes to the rescue to feed the little monster.
~ Served Best ~
We tend to empty the full contents into a plastic try which has three sections one for main food, one for dessert and one for snacks e.g. cookies, organic crisps. We heat his food up in the microwave until just warm so he doesn't get a burned tongue and then we add the dessert into the tray obviously we don't add the dessert whilst we arm his food up as it would heat his dessert up also so we just add it after his main course has been heated.
~ Price and Shop ~
We tend to buy our boy a load of jars at once mainly in the supermarket offers and only buy organic which this product is. We currently buy ours from Sainsbury's for around 60p to 80p depending on which jars you buy. The price may be a little high but for the quality you get it is worth the extra for your child.

Organic vegetables (52%) [Cauliflower (30%), potatoes, onions], organic skimmed milk, water, organic cooked rice, organic grated hard cheese (6%), organic sunflower oil.
This is one of the only savoury jars of food my little boy likes in the hipp range. It contains Organic vegetables (cauliflower, potatoes, onions), organic skimmed milk, water, organic rice, organic grated hard cheese, organic sunflower oil. It is really quite tasty but i find my little boy prefers the cow and gate version for some reason. He does not seem to enjoy the savoury range of Hipp as much as the puddings. Yes i know you'll be thinking well obviously he will like sweet options more but he does not seem to enjoy the savoury Hipp rnage, especially compared to heinz or cow and gate.
The cauliflower cheese is in a convenient glass jar which is great for when you are out and about. You can either transfer it into a clean bowl or just serve it straight from the jar but the label reccommends you discard the left overs if you do serve straight from the jar.
Smooth blend of cauliflower and potatoes with cheese sauce.
