In an ideal world, I would make my 7 month old's baby food like I did with my first daughter. But I'm now a working mom with two kids & I just don't have the time to cook & puree her meals. These pouches are a lifesaver. I feel safe knowing that they're organic & natural & I love the selection of flavors they have. It gives my daughter the opportunity to experience a bunch of different flavors. They're easy to pack for on the go.
