Nurturing My Kids With NurturMe

When it comes to feeding Moo and JJ, I want to make sure that I'm feeding them the best.  And by the best, I mean foods that are rich in nutrients to help make their little bodies strong.  We stay away from foods that have added preservatives, sugars and salts.  Yes, we're Team Organic.  Most importantly I make sure that the foods I serve them are gluten free due their food allergies.

How cute this little pouch?

It's for those exact reasons that I was first drawn to try out NurturMe.  NurturMe offers organic dried vegetables and fruits that come individual packets.  There are no specific measurements.  I simply open a pouch pour what I think JJ will eat into a bowl and add some breast milk until it's the right constancy for him.  Since, we're working on him feeding himself, I usually go for a chunky texture.

The food packets

 Another beautiful thing about these food packets from NurturMe is that they're not just for infants but can be used for children up to 4 years old!  For example, I can add a pouch or two of the Hearty Sweet Potato Pancakes to my morning pancake batter. Just like that Moo goes from having plain old buttermilk pancakes to sweet potato pancakes rich Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron! 

Toddler Meal Recipes
We're also big smoothie fans, so I can throw all our ingredients in the blender as usual then add a pouch of the fruit to help make our smoothies even more nutritious.  Yea, I'm not afraid to say that I've tried NurturMe!  I wouldn't feed it to my kids if I didn't trust it to be good enough for me to try.  Besides, I can't just let a whole blender of smoothie go to waste.

The meal options are endless when it comes to NurturMe. (You can check out their website for recipes here.)  I mean this is simply genius!!  And you can try NurturMe for yourself using this awesome deal from Plum District:

NutureMe Two 18-Count Variety Packs of Organic Baby & Toddler Food, Plus One Surprise 8-Pack 7/24/12 - 7/30/12

You won't be disappointed.  Our kids eat enough foods that aren't healthy for them when they're school, cookouts, etc. So, why not try something that's going to help make up for those missed nutrients?  And mom's who have trouble finding gluten free products, I definitely recommend that you snag this deal.  It will make meal planning and cooking so much easier.

How do you make sure your kids are getting their proper nutrients?

    1. You're welcome Caroline! Thank you for taking the time out to come and read my review. I am truly thankful that I had the opportunity to stumble across NurturMe!

  3. I'm always looking for healthy quick options for my daughter. I agree with you she will get enough "fun" (unhealthy) food when she starts school in a few years. It is one of my top priorities to feed her the best. I buy organic when I can. I'm going to check out the smoothie recipes, those would be great on the go options! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes, please check out the smoothies. They are so good!
