This video pretty much sums up exactly what NurturMe Baby Food is.
What do I like about NurturMe?
It’s an organic baby food.
What better way to start your baby on food that is free of toxic pesticides. Non-organic baby food can contain pesticides from conventional farming uses as a common treatment to kill damaging insects, weeds, fungi and bacteria. The residue left behind is difficult to remove and can be harmful to your baby’s vulnerable, growing body.
Including peas, apples, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, and bananas.
Dried food contains more nutrients than jarred food.
NurturMe is fruits and vegetables that use freeze and drum drying methods. Because there is less heat exposure to foods in the freeze and drum drying processes, there is a higher preservation of nutrients and phytochemicals. Freeze and drum dried foods retain more flavor, texture and color than canned foods, making them look better and taste fresher.
Powder form lasts up to 24 months from manufacture’s date.
Since there is a lack of moisture in the foods, NurturMe products have the advantage of a long shelf life.
NurturMe is nothing but organically grown, naturally dried food, with no added salts, sugars or preservatives. The pumpkin and sweet potato baby foods do have sunflower lecithin, an emulsifying agent that is not genetically modified. The other additive in our sweet potato and squash, Maltodextrin, is a carbohydrate extracted from corn since our product is gluten free.
You can control the consistency of the food.
Unlike other baby foods, NurturMe quick-dried fruits and veggies give you the flexibility to make it the way your baby likes it. You can choose to add breast milk, whole milk, formula or water in any amount and combination.
Use it in recipes.
As your baby’s tastes’ mature, you can simply add the packets of NurturMe to dishes like mac and cheese, pudding, or smoothies.
Since Athena is still too young, and Kendall is past the baby food stage, I had my friend Amber try some NurturMe peas on her daughter who is about 4 months old and starting solids. She loved it and eat just about the whole package.
I personally do not start solids until they at least six months old, and recommend everyone wait until then. Also, there is no need to even introduce infant cereal either. It’s straight to the veggies and fruits for us.
Even if you are past the baby food stage, like we are with Kendall and Carleigh, it’s super easy to include NurturMe into an everyday recipes like these. Here are a couple of fun St. Patrick’s Day recipes from NurturMe.
