Who are these people in Glasgow who have had a pop at Ella’s kitchen? Let me go and shake them. I use Ella’s pouches not for what’s in them but for what’s not in them! Also they’re mega convenient and less likely to leak. Any woman who’s had a baby food leak in their bag will understand exactly what I’m saying there!
That said I’ve never used Heinz because they contain sugar. Having food allergies myself I’m accustomed to reading food labels so it was only natural to do this when I started buying convenience food for the sproglet. I was shocked that Heinz puts sugar in baby food. Why would you do that? Surely it’s cheaper not to! They’ll argue that it’s all there on the label for everyone to see but who the hell reads food labels except for freakazoids with food allergies!
If the government is serious about taking on obesity then baby food is a good place to start. Educating mums to help them make better choices for their kids is the only way to reduce childhood obesity. They also need to be realistic. This once again feels like the breast feeding organic police are beating the ‘you’re a bad mother drum.’ I’ve switched off already. Give me some real world advice like “Home cooked food is the best but a pouch every now and then isn’t going to hurt. Here are a load of free recipes with easy instructions on how to make baby food which don’t involve lentils or a mouli!”
