Ethan is 9 months old now and we feed him a combination of homemade meals (where they’re suitable to be blended and fed) as well as jars/sachets. Over the past month or so, he’s become a little fussier with his jarred baby food, probably because he’s becoming more accustomed to blended homemade meals.
But sometimes you just need something that is quick, convenient and healthy too, so I’m always trying new ones with him and making a note of his favourites. Hipp Organic asked us to review their baby food jars, so we’ve been trying those out over the past few days.
We were sent 8 jars, which included 2 breakfast ones. It’s the breakfast ones that I was particularly interested in as it’s the mornings when we tend to be in a rush and need to get something balanced, filling but quick inside the little man.
So the Creamed Porridge Breakfast and the Banana Yoghurt Breakfast were our starting point for Ethan’s taste test!
We use the baby porridge oats you make up with formula. But when in a rush, it’s less than ideal so we usually also have a stock of pre made breakfast baby sachets.
I tried Ethan with the Banana Yoghurt breakfast from Hipp Organic as his first Hipp taste test!
Well, he polished off the lot and was looking for more afterwards too!
We had the same result with the creamed porridge the next day too!
Dinners and Lunches
The other ones we’ve tried over the course of the week so far have been lunches and dinners. He’s tried:
- Spaghetti bolognese
- Penne with tomato and courgette
- Sweet squash and chicken
- Mediterranean vegetables with aubergines
- Buttered vegetables
He’s polished them all off with the exception of the buttered vegetables which he was a little less keen on.
But, on the whole, he has been looking remarkably pleased with his food this week!

So jars have a few definite benefits over sachets. For a start, it’s easy feeding without a bowl. Second, they end up in your garage filled with screws or bolts or similar. Very handy 😉
I find the sachets easier to heat up. It’s super quick to just stand them in hot water. But our son has enjoyed his pre-made meals more this week than he has in a few weeks. So we’ll definitely be buying some in.
The breakfasts were the highlight of the week for us. The Hipp Organic breakfasts both appeared to go down better than other breakfasts we’ve given him and it’s so quick and convenient too!
Add to that the fact that Hipp Organic is the only organic range of baby food jars in the UK and the ingredients are all carefully chosen for a healthy meal, and I have perfect peace of mind feeding these to my son.
All in all, a winner in our household!
