What with recently being heavily pregnant and now with a newborn, it hasn’t been particularly easy getting out of the house with Jack. Thankfully, the sun has been kind to us occasionally and as Jack loves to play in the garden, we have been able to spend plenty of time outside having fun. With perfect timing, Jack was invited by HiPP Organic to join a team of HiPP Explorers. Jack’s has been challenged this month to explore his outdoor surroundings and to discover new experiences and tastes. They kindly sent us some goodies to create a woodland adventure and a selection of tray meals for Jack to try alfresco.
HiPP Organic is the only large, family-run company in baby food, passionate about providing the best possible quality food for all babies and young children. Their product portfolio has more than 120 products, for every stage of weaning including pouches, jars, tray meals, cereals and fruit pots and they are the only brand to offer pasta shaped tray meals (zoo animals, alphabet, numbers).
I love the idea of the microwavable heart shaped trays. Over the space of a week, Jack has enjoyed all of the tray meals in the garden at either lunch or tea time. I would say he particularly enjoyed the Flying Alphabet Pasta and Magic Number Pasta options, they hardly touched the sides. I was surprised at how much he liked the creamy pumpkin sauce, I would never have thought to try him with that so it has definitely been worthwhile taking part in the challenge.
Another bonus for me is the convenience that comes with the tray meals especially with a now extra busy household. Just one minute in the microwave for food that is both nutritional and clearly yummy too! Whats not to like?
Jack’s challenge has been great fun, he is a very hands-on toddler and likes to get involved with new things. It came as no surprise that he loved planting his vegetable seeds and certainly didn’t mind getting messy. You can see the concentration on his face and his proud wave to mummy through the kitchen window. It will be great for him to see them grow.
As part of Jack’s adventures, we have also been picking and eating cherries, watering Nanny’s flowers and looking for fishes in Grandad’s pond. Just look at the concentration on his little face whilst he is taking it all in. A bonus is that Jack has picked up two new words, ‘pea’ and ‘fish’ as a result, which is fab.
HiPP Organic understand the moments that matter to mums. It’s been lovely watching Jack enjoy new experiences outdoors and also, great for him to try new food flavours. We’ve loved taking part in the challenge, it has been a good learning process for Jack and we’ve shared some much needed family bonding time.
