Peter Rabbit Organic Fruit and Veggie Pouches
Let’s talk about toddler food for a moment. Darah is now eating pretty much anything we are eating, but she still has her own dishes that I would describe as a chunkier version of baby food. Her morning mush is a good example. It typically consists of whole grains (right now she is eating lots of millet), plain yogurt, sugar-free applesauce and blueberries. I am so thankful that she still enjoys this dish, because we pack a whole lot of nutrition into it! She’ll eat this meal pretty much any time of day, which makes it a great go-to snack, as well.
But it isn’t exactly the kind of thing that I can throw in the diaper bag with ease. The things that are easy to take with me are wheat thins (she goes through so many that we buy them at Costco) and string cheese. There are certainly worse things I could be feeding her, but sometimes I feel dissatisfied with these options and wish I had a healthier choice.
And that’s when Peter Rabbit Organics came back on the scene! I reviewed the delicious fruit flavors they offered back in November, and found that they were yummy enough for babies AND grown ups! I’m pleased to report that they now have a line of pouches that have fruit AND vegetables in them. This is great for me to see, as Darah does not always love her veggies. She doesn’t hate them, but her mood seems to dictate whether or not she’ll eat anything green.
The three new pouches from Peter Rabbit Organics have all been tested by Miss Darah, and she ate every last drop of all three of them. Success! The flavors are as follows: Sweet Potato, Corn and Apple; Pea, Spinach and Apple; and Carrot, Squash and Apple.
I tasted them, myself, and I don’t think I would eat them, personally. They weren’t bad, but they did remind me a bit more of baby food than their fruit pouch counterparts. I’m sure that others might disagree with me, and if you are looking for a really easy way to get some veggies in, either for yourself or for your kids, give this a try. I will definitely be buying more of the Pea, Spinach and Apple because I haven’t yet found a way to get Darah to eat spinach other than this, and since it is a super food, I want her to have more of it! Also, I should mention that this is the flavor she ate the fastest. I actually put the squeeze part of the pouch in her mouth, just to see what would happen, and she literally sucked all the food out of it in record time!

My answer: One trick I have to getting Darah to eat squash is to combine it with pears or apples. That seems to work every time!
