“ Manufacturer: Hipp / Age: 10 months+ „
Hipp Organic Pasta & Pork with Tomato & Herbs is the longest name for a baby food I have ever seen. Anyway this baby food comes in a colourless transparent jar so you can see its carrot orange colour and some little bits of herb and pasta. It belongs to Hipp's Organic Growing Up Meals. The label on the jar has a big Hipp Organic logo on it then below you can see most of the ingredients: onion, pasta, tomato, oregano, 2 slices of pork steak, oregano, pasta and tomato again. This baby food is of stage 3 which means you can give it from the age of 10 months to your baby. It is not totally smooth like foods of stage 1 but the pasta is overcooked for the babies and the herbs are in very little pieces.
I tasted it as I always do and I found that the carrot dominates this food a little bit but it was definitely delicious. It is sweet because of the carrot and tomato. It reminded me to spaghetti Bolognese and it is not strange at all as the ingredients are almost the same.
There is 250g baby food in the jar which is quite good quantity and I was really surprised when my 13 months old son eat it all. He eats very badly so this food was really delicious or my son was extremely hungry (or both). If your baby doesn't eat it all replace the cap and keep it refrigerated. You should use it within 24 hours.
The ingredients are the follows: Organic vegetables (48%) [tomatoes (27%), carrots, onions], organic cooked pasta (durum wheat) (23%), water, organic cooked rice, organic pork (8%), organic vegetable stock [salt, organic rice flour, organic vegetables (carrots, onions, celeriac), organic yeast extract, organic vegetable oil, organic spices], organic herbs & spices (oregano, garlic, pepper).
It doesn't contain milk, GM ingredients and preservatives. It is preserved by heating and sterile packaging. It contains gluten, wheat, celeriac and may contain traces of egg.

I think this food was delicious and healthy for my son and I recommend you trying it. It has quite smooth texture and the pieces of pasta are really overcooked so your baby can actually swallow it without chewing it. It makes them get used to solid food. I found that my son hardly notices that there is pasta which he should chew before swallowing it. He ate it just as a yogurt. The jar is a very practical wrapping for baby food because you can bring it with yourself and heat it easily. You can put it on the radiator or warm it in the car by a baby food heater or put it in hot water. It gives you lots of choices. In case your baby left some of it you can replace the cap on it and this seals well enough not to pour out. The food is thick enough not to flow out simply. So well done Hipp!
You can buy this baby food in most of the supermarkets for about 1.06 pounds. I bought ours in Sainsbury's yesterday but I saw today in Tesco for the same price as well. In Sainsbury's it is on offer now: 5 jars for 4 pounds.
