Emma is officially eating soft foods and purees which is making this mama so proud and also a little sad. At the same time we’re officially on formula which means my breastfeeding journey with Emma has come to an end. Major props to you mamas who BF a year or even after that! It’s such a challenge but I’m definitely going to miss it :(
A few weeks ago Yumi sent us a couple boxes of their baby purees to try on Emma. It’s been so cool to try out new foods with her and experiment with textures and recipes. The only downfall is that I don’t always have the time to make our own food at home and am noticing that our local grocery stores carry the same mix of food pouches(plus I feel bad using up so much plastic!). So I was intrigued by Yumi and their foods because they are changing all the time and they actually introduce a ton of fresh ingredients I wouldn’t usually use. I’m a creature of habit and make the same 2-3 things every week at home for dinner so I feel like it would probably be the same mix of foods if I chose to make Emma’s dishes each week. I love that they’ve done all the hard work so I can just pull them out of the fridge during meal time. Plus they deliver straight to your door and the foods come in the most beautiful reusable jars! Everything about my experience with them has been top notch.
Our boxes arrived and I was blown away by how beautiful the packaging was. It also included a cute little food book to read to Emma. Once we opened up the foods there was a mix of single ingredient purees as well as blends that introduced a variety of ingredients like ground flax, quinoa, kiwi and dragon fruit. It was yellow week so a lot of the ingredients focused on yellow foods. Foods I wouldn’t ever think would taste good but after trying them all myself they were surprisingly delicious! Emma went crazy for them and I can’t wait to reorder and see what other blends they think up. Yumi has also included a discount code for my readers to try out. If you have a little one that’s eating purees or you’re starting to introduce soft foods you can use my code: NOIRVEYUMI50 for a free week on your first order. Enjoy! x
Shout out to Jane for letting us use her beautiful kitchen for this post ;)
