When the boys started eating solids and started asking (and by asking I really mean crying) for snacks when we are outside - usually when they are in their stroller. I decided to explore baby snacks. I didn't really know a whole lot about baby food / snack since I've always made / cooked the food that they eat at home.. but snacks made me nervous because I couldn't give them puree while we are outside and on the move, so ideally I wanted something they can hold themselves and of course not messy. Another reason why I wanted to give them "finger food" (since we did not go on the BLW route) is that I want them to start practicing their grasping and pinching skills.
I decided to try the Love Child Organics brand because the ingredients are natural and healthy (my standard of healthy is most likely different from yours, so read the ingredients list and see if you like what you see) and honestly the big factor is that it is made locally (local to me, we live in BC and Love Child Organics is made in Whistler). I try to support local, especially when it comes to food, so I was really happy with that. So far we've tried their purees and a couple of their snacks. I also love their cute packaging, it's available in our local grocery store and it's reasonably priced. The "age guide" on their package which tells you at what age you can start offering the snack to your babes is also very helpful especially to first time moms like me.
