Thanks Inspired by Savannah for this fantastic review & giveaway! We are so excited to present a SQ1 fan with our Organic Goodies! Make sure you are following us on twitter and you like us on facebook to win!!



Square One Organics Mission Statement:

Every food in the Square One® line is a Super Food. We choose organic foods because we believe that what you don’t give a child is just as important as what you do. Organic foods are free of pesticides and harmful chemicals. The only ingredients you will find in our Square One® Purees are organic fruits, vegetables, grains and water. Our cups are #5 recyclable polypropylene one of the top three healthiest types of plastic for food containers. Number 5 polypropylene does not contain Bisphenol-A and has not been shown to leach carcinogens or endocrine disruptors.

My Thoughts:

I was recently sent a sampling of the Square One Organics baby food to try with my daughter, Savannah.  Square One Organics are available for 6 months and up, 8 months and up, and 10 months and up, so depending upon your child’s age and stage of eating (firsts, more complex and finger foods).  Even though Savannah is eating more finger foods and “people foods,” I find that if I give her organic baby foods as part of her lunch and dinner, it helps with her digestion and keeping her regular.  So, when I received my box of goodies to try with her, I couldn’t wait to see what she thought.

First, I was surprised at the little serving containers the organic baby food came in, and how you had to keep them frozen.  Then, I read the packaging and saw that these foods only contain organic fruits, vegetables, grains and water.  I didn’t have to worry about nasty preservatives or additives that are found in most of the other jar and pouch baby foods on the market.  Also, there were no harmful chemicals or pesticides used with the growing of the fruits and vegetables used in Square One Organics products, so really but my mind at ease.

Over the course of a week, I had Savannah sample each of the Square One Purees.  Based on her reaction and request for more, I have to say she enjoyed the mango, spinach, butternut squash, and peas. She was not a fan of the papaya or broccoli purees, as she quickly spit them out of her mouth with the few spoonful’s I gave her.  In addition


to these flavors, Square One purees also come in Quinoa and pumpkin flavors. I ended up mixing the quinoa and mango together for a thicker consistency, which Savannah loved.

Overall, Savannah enjoyed this new brand of organic baby food purees, and now I have some great recipes, which incorporate these foods, to serve Savannah.  Just tonight, I made her the Vegan Mango Coconut Panna Cotta Pudding for dessert, and she devoured it in minutes! And, the other day, I added a container of peas to her mac and cheese to make Square One Organics recipe, Green Mac and Cheese.  Savannah loved it!

So, if you are looking to start your little one on stage 1 and up baby foods/purees, why not consider giving Square One Organics a try.  I have tried various other organic brands, and have to say that these not only looked and smelled good, but were also more pleasing to my daughter’s palette than others she has tried.  Every time I warmed up a container, she asked for me. And, she is a picky eater, so I know from her reaction, that this brand is a winner!
