We all know formula and/or breastmilk is the best source for baby's nutritional needs up to a year old (even then it's the recommended source period) but from six months and up you can begin introducing solids to your baby, adding different tastes and textures to his or her every day meals.

Baby M is already almost one year old, she is growing to be a loveable and very active baby. She loves her bottle but she also eats baby food like a pro! Well, a 10 month old pro. She still needs a little work when it comes to the spoon to mouth coordination and is sometimes surprised by new textures, oh the faces!

Mmm Heinz Baby Strawberries - Stage 3!
There are so many ways to make your own baby food and I really give kudos to those parents who make their own but honestly for our family, premade baby food is just easier and baby likes it. Plus, often enough the grocery store will have good sales on baby jars and cereal making it easier to stock up!

Heinz has been proudly preparing baby food in Canada since 1934! With a big menu of baby food for different ages and stages, Heinz Baby has over 150 varieties of foods including 39 organic recipes. Heinz offers a complete line of baby food to support baby's nutritional needs from begining cereal, meals and snacks to finger foods like first biscuits. Heinz Staging System found on the website makes it easier for parents to find exactly what their baby needs in terms of food without any guessing. Remember each baby is different and only you and your baby know when you are ready for that next step.


She can't talk yet but our little girl pretty much likes all the Heinz Baby food we have tried so far, except peas and custard. She eats a mix of stages 1, 2 but mostly stage 3 foods. She really likes the Mom's Recipe chicken and vegitable risotto!

I like the easy-to-serve method. Cereal can be made with milk or not (depending which kind you choose), the variety of meals, snacks and desserts in jar and now in new pouches give your baby that "big kid" feeling with choices like chicken, beef and an array of fruits and veggies.

  1. Sometimes you absolutely have to buy baby food. I tried to make my babies food and I was at home with them but we had busy lives and we raced around a lot doing baby swimming and reading and gymboree etc. So these things were huge game changers and time savers for me. Plus my babies like Heinz baby food.

    1. Heinz has been around for as long as I remember. The slogan used to be "Heinz, there's no other kindz" for Ketchup back in the day! ;-)

    1. I'm not much of a cook to begin with so preparing baby food from scratch to me is scary! What if it's no good? What if she doesn't like it? What if I ruin it and waste the food? All these stresses, I'll go buy some from the experts! ;)

    1. I always wish we had the vast amount of information about babies and parenting back when my oldest was born compared to now online!
