A fun box came to our door the other day. Ecomom gave me the opportunity to review their Plum Organics line and I totally jumped on the opportunity. We had tried Plum Organics baby food for the first time a few months ago and LOVED it, so I was really excited to see what else they offered.
The box contained a variety of foods, geared towards everyone from 6 months to elementary age.
The box contained two samples of Plum Organics baby food. Full disclosure: My 9 month old son HATES baby food purees. So I gave one of each of these to my 2 year old and to my 4 year old. Verdict? Huge grins and pleas for more. The flavors usually combine fruits and veggies such as Baby Spinach, Peas and Pears. I love their pouch packaging as it totally gives me a great way to give my kids a healthy snack on the go with little to no messes. (Also, if you do use it as baby food, it's a great way to eliminate wasted food as you can squeeze what you need and store the rest).
Since they loved the Plum Organics baby food, it totally made sense that they would like the PlumTots Organic Mish Mash pouch and the Revolution Foods Organic Mash-up pouch. And they totally did. These are a bit smaller and are designed for a snack or a side in a lunchbox rather than a meal.
My only request would be that they would add veggies to these as well. Why not?
The last things we got to sample were the Revolution Foods Strawberry and Grape Jammy Sammies. These are also organic, which is great. My 4 year old looked at me and said, "Um, these are not my favorites." Then again, she doesn't like PB&J sandwiches, so no surprises. The 2 year old gobbled them up and then stole her sister's and ate that too. Without thinking, I pulled a total doofus Mother move and handed one to my 9 month old son. Apparently, he's not allergic to peanuts. Good to know. Oh, and he loves them too.
They're very sweet, so I think they'd be best served as a dessert or a treat... but at that, it's nice to know that it's an organic snack without preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, or high fructose corn syrup.
We're now huge fans of both brands and I'm absolutely going to continue purchasing these in the future. And we'll definitely be purchasing through the EcoMom site. Specializing in Eco-Friendly Baby Products, EcoMom offers products that run from food, toys, baby care products, clothing and more. The site is certainly more than just a retail site.
But on the retail side of things, they have two offers for you. The first is their new EcoPass program. For $99, you can purchase an annual membership which gives you 15% off of every order and free shipping with no minimum order requirement. If you're going to purchase frequently, I can imagine this would pay for itself quickly.
Also, until May 31st, you can use the code SBBL296 to get 15% off of your first purchase from EcoMom.
And now, the part you've been waiting for... the giveaway! EcoMom has graciously offered to give away $20 worth of either PlumOrganics or Revolution Foods products to one lucky reader!
