Plum Baby review – organic yogurt blends

I am a huge fan of Plum Baby. They use the type of simple, honest organic ingredients that I would choose to cook at home, meaning that any Plum pouches I use are the sort of food I feel comfortable giving to Max.

We were sent some of the new Plum Baby organic yogurt blends to try out. Made with creamy Greek style yogurt and a combination of fruit and vegetables, they are the perfect size to pop in my changing bag for days out.

After trialling all 3 flavours, I think I can safely say that Max has no preference whatsoever – he really does love them all. They are classed as Stage 1 pouches – so they are ideal for the first days of weaning, with their smooth, creamy consistency. But beyond that, they are also perfect for bigger babies and young children. They can be eaten straight out the pouch (Max’s preferred method and one that works really well when you are out and about – no messy bowls and spoons to worry about), squeezed into a bowl, or squirted over fruit. We have even discovered that Max loves it spread onto a slice of toast!

The flavours sound a bit unusual to us grown ups – I am not sure I would ever mix raspberry and spinach, but we forget that babies taste buds are very different to ours. If you ever watch a baby who is given a selection of foods to eat, they will almost always mix their sweet with their savoury, exploring textures and tastes. Which makes you see that these Plum Baby pouches really are designed with babies in mind. Little ones who explore a variety of tastes and textures from a very early age are more likely to be open to new foods as they grow, and this is certainly the case with Max – we are yet to find a food he refuses!

 I will definitely be picking up some more of these Plum organic yogurt blends on the next supermarket run. They are so versatile, Max loves them, and I know he is getting some real goodness too. I shall be browsing the rest of the Plum Baby range too to see what other goodies Max might enjoy!

    Baby Max does look ver happy! There’s so much good baby food out there now. My youngest is 9 and even though I’m talking about less than 10 years ago, when I was weaning her the choice of off-the-shelf baby food really was a bit rubbish to be honest.

      I love Plum too – these pouches were a real hit with Max, would love to hear if your little man loves them too!

    These sound great and it really looks like he’s enjoying them too!

    I’ll have to keep an eye out for these for Bo! I can’t believe how many new products there are even in the two years since I weaned Chlo!

    These sound really good. My little one is just shy of three months, but although I want to hold off on weaning for as long as possible, she’s such a hungry little thing, I think we’ll end up doing it early and I know nothing about baby food! Think I need to read up on it quick! x

    These do sound good. My two are older now, but I know they’d still eat these happily!

    I’ve started Darcy on Ella’s Kitchen but I will defo be trying these out also. I really love the sound of the yogurt in a pouch rather than a cup less mess for sure

    Thanks, for sharing these, we are about to start weaning in the next couple of weeks so will be stocking up on these in the hope that my daughter likes them as much as your son does. xx

    The flavours sound terrible from an adult point of view, but I well remember Joe dipping quavers in strawberry yoghurt…
