Organic Packaged Baby Food Options –
I made my own organic purees for my baby at home and used the fruit and vegetable packets/pouches below when we were ‘on the go’. A number of baby food products on the market are organic but not all contain packaging that is BPA free which was an important consideration for us. We actually still use these packets/pouches as snacks for our toddler and they are a great, healthy option.
Plum Organics pouches are made from 100% BPA and phthalate free plastic and foil. The inner lining is made from a food grade polyethylene.
Per the Plum Organics website, all products are manufactured in North America except for the Plum Tots Teensy Fruits and Plum Kids Shredz which are manufactured in Belgium.
Most ingredients are sourced from within the US but some of the tropical fruits are sourced from Mexico and South America.
