Making memories with family meals

When I found out I was pregnant, one thing that I was most excited about was the idea of family meals. Gathering around the dining table as a family, everyone spending time together, talking and laughing and eating is just something that Iโ€™ve had in my head for years and now that we have a baby who is old enough to join us in eating, it has been such a joy! Sitting at the table eating meals together is one of my favorite memories from growing up, and I love that I am passing on this simple, but important, tradition with my own little family.

Plum Organic Food Pouches

My baby is 10 months old now and he has just discovered the joy of eating. He loves to experiment with different food and textures, and really loves feeding himself. He is actually so independent, that he rarely will eat food unless he gets to be the one in control. This is why Plum Organics food pouches are ideal for him. He can hold the pouch himself and he monitors how much food he gets and when he gets it. Also, I love that the pouches allow my husband and me to eat our own food at the same time! This truly makes for an ideal family meal.

Plum Organics Hello Meals

Gathering around the table, with my baby in his high chair next to us, is just the sweetest experience. Sure, it gets messy, but thatโ€™s half the fun! I love his excitement and pride when he feeds himself, and that little grin with food plastered all over his face is simply priceless!

With Hello Meals, his taste buds are happy, but so are all of his other senses as well. Feeding all of his senses is key in keeping him excited about food and eager to eat more! And eating our meals as a family as much as possible is very important to me and I feel that it brings us closer together. Itโ€™s important for us to take a pause from our busy lives and spend quality time together, bonding and giving each other our undivided attention. With the busy days and hectic schedules, family meals are truly a valued time in our household and something that will continue to be so.

Since our days are so busy, itโ€™s nice to know that we can feed our baby something that is not only easy-to-make, but also healthy and filling, and something that he actually enjoys! I love that we can make our own recipes, too, and incorporate new foods, like adding some banana pieces to his oatmeal, or peas and broccoli to his quinoa.

Plum Organics really knows baby nutrition and it gives me peace of mind as a mom that my baby is eating something that he likes and that is also good for him. You can read all about the nutrition and ingredients found in Hello Meals here!
