Cow and Gate veggie pouches #Review


We were recently sent Cow and Gate friends Veggie pouches to try out although Jack is a little over the age of eating puree food, We tried them all the same they are a great accompaniment to add to meals and to get your little one to try vegetables. Vegetables can be difficult to get your little ones taste buds used to little ones are often more receptive to the sweet tastes of fruit rather than bitter tasting vegetables. But, the earlier and more often your little one is given a variety of vegetable flavours during weaning, the more likely they will learn to love them.



Cow and Gate Veggie Friends starts with four different single vegetable varieties these are cauliflower, pea, carrot and broccoli, which is quite a distinct vegetable variety of tastes to be tried in the early stages of weaning. As your little one starts to enjoy and notice the single vegetable tastes. The Friends range expands to vegetable varieties with different flavour combinations including cheese, pasta and chicken. Adding a variety of flavours and textures but still keeping to a strong vegetable taste, means that we can help our little ones hopefully learn to love veggies for life.

I love that each of the beginner pouches have character names Claire Carrot, Chris Cauliflower, Bella Broccoli and Peter Pea, all of the Cow and Gate Friends vegetable pouches are re-sealable to use within 24 hours and made with no added salt, sugar, additives or preservatives. Each Friends vegetable pouch is ready to eat, steam cooked, with no mixing or disguising of vegetables with fruit and can be served warm or cold.

I personally love the weaning pouches they are so easy and convenient to use, they don't take up much room in the changing bag or cupboard they are less money than the jars, I find that I don't waste so much when I have the pouches and they are a lot less messy plus there easier to use when you are out and about. I love that you get what the packet says and it's nothing that I think is a weird flavour combination sometimes with some of the jars and other pouches that are about I do think, yuck why would you mix all that together. The constancy of the pouches are also really good sometimes I find baby food to be a bit watery but the Cow and gate friends are not at all.

Jack really loved the vegetable pouches he didn't turn his nose up at any he liked them as a dish on there own and as vegetables on the side of a main meal.

overall I thought the pouches were great value for money and would definitely recommend them in the weaning stage, they are a simple but an effective way of letting your little one get used to the individual tastes and textures of vegetables.

Have you tried the Friends Cow and Gate vegetable pouches before? What did you think? I would love to hear your thoughts.



We were sent a selection of weaning pouches from cow and gate for the purpose of this review all opinions remain honest and my own
