Finding foods that babies enjoy can be difficult for parents, especially when they are first feeling out which ingredients their kids like and which they don't. With that in mind, we included a lot of variety packs on this list. Of course, once you have determined their favorites, you can simply buy more of that particular flavor. It is important though, to try and introduce your child to new foods, so don't be afraid to add some different ones to the rotation periodically.
While most infants don't have a problem with things like lemon juice or citric acid, we do appreciate that most flavors in Plum Organics Stage 1 Just Fruit & Veggies Variety are completely free of things like that, making it a good choice for parents who want to give their children the purest food possible. We also like that Gerber Organic 2nd Foods has added vitamin C, which is important nutrient for the immune system. That being said, it does use lemon juice that comes from concentrate, which some may not like, but, in truth, there isn't anything harmful about this and it is pretty common in most organic baby foods.
Those ready to give their child some textured foods can look to Happy Baby Superfood Puffs. They are solid-like, but quickly melt on the tongue, which can be a fun experience for youngsters. Plus, since they are based on rice flour, they are gluten-free.
While some parents may choose not to introduce meat into a baby's diet until after 12 months of age, there is no doubt that doing so is one of the best ways to give them iron, zinc, and protein once they are no longer on breast milk or formula. If you are ready to give your little one some heartier meals, Serenity Kids Meats is a top choice. It is packed with important macronutrients and made with all ethically-sourced meats. Not all of the pouches carry the USDA organic certification, but this is due to the fact that certain types of meat cannot be certified as organic, for example any fish that is wild caught. That being said, all of the fruits and vegetables in it are organic, and the meats are free of antibiotics and hormones.
Earth's Best Organic If you don't want to feed your baby anything that comes in a plastic package, even if it is BPA-free, then you will appreciate that Earth's Best Organic comes in glass jars. It is available in options for stage one, two, and three, in single-ingredient and multi-ingredient varieties, and meat and meatless options. earthsbest.com
