the first is local boston based business, little lettice organic baby food. the founder, sara cabot, is a mom of 4 who made all of her own baby food. i am impressed. 4 kids? homemade baby food? this woman is like a super hero. for reals. anyways, little lettice is available at whole foods, south end formaggio kitchen and a few other local stores. it's more expensive than the jar food for sure, but really the taste is amazing. they have the best apples of all the options i tasted. they also had a bit more texture than their jarred counterparts. which was great for us because little jasper (remember: sensitive sally in all ways) was resistant to texture and it was a great step in the texture pyramid. thank goodness we had early food intervention for her otherwise i wouldn't have "texture pyramid" in my lexicon. aren't you guys lucky?
the second one i found and have enjoyed is happy baby food. this food is delicious and is found also at whole foods in the frozen section. the portions are small and come in ice cube like trays, so you just pop em out and defrost and serve. brilliant. the peas are my favorite for sure. they have a hint of mint. yum! the foods come in 3 different options; purees, smooth + sorta chunky.
what's great about both options is the flavor. i really can't say it enough, the flavor of the fresh frozen food vs. the jar food is incredible. go ahead, i know you are dying to taste your baby's food.
