Review & Giveaway: NurturMe

Michelle Llyod

When I was pregnant, I dreamed about being able to make my own babyfood. I bought books. Browsed online for fancy recipes to help develop my son’s palate. Then the time came for his first foods and reality kicked in. We are a on the go family. Not saying we eat a bunch of fast food or anything like that, but we are out and about often and carrying around pre-made babyfood hasn’t been ideal. I also tend to forget about the leftovers in the freezer or fridge and they’ve spoiled. I really didn’t want to feed him jarred or pouch foods for every meal when I wasn’t making our own, so when I heard about < a href=""target=" blank">NurturMe I knew I found the right fit for our needs.

NurturMe is the first and only family of certified-organic, dried fruit and veggie meals. They are expanding their award-winning line of organic dried baby food, including the introduction of a 100% quinoa rice cereal alternative, a new line of blended NurturMeals organic dry meal pouches that combine delicious and nutrient-rich fruit and veggie flavors, and a new line of bite-sized organic Yum-a-Roo’s dried fruit and veggie snacks for toddlers. The Yum-a-Roo's go great in lunchboxes or for afternoon snacks!

NurturMeals are the perfect answer for healthy, organic, on the go meals. The meals are 100% fruit and vegetables with no preservatives, no GMOs, added sugars, or salts. *Some meals do have additives like maltodextrin and lecithin to serve as binding agents. Both are organic, safe, non-GMO, and easy to digest.

The organic fruits and vegetables have been freeze and drum dried which preserves the nutrients and phytochemicals. Once you add breastmilk, water, whole or coconut milk, formula, or even organic juice the mixture thickens and becomes a puree. NurturMeals are even great for toddlers! You can add a packet into macaroni and cheese, brownies, yogurt, or other favorite baked goods.

NurturMe is all packed in recyclable materials made with wind energy! NurturMeals leave a smaller carbon footprint on our planet than the other options found in the baby aisle. The packaging is also BPA-free. We were sent a variety of cereals, singles, and blends to est and we’ve even bought a few extra since little man loves them.

The powder is very fine and I was able to smell the sweet potatoes before adding the liquid. I used a reusable container, that can be frozen, to make our mix since little man doesn’t finish the whole 4 oz. serving.

His favorite is the NurturMeals Carrots, Raisins, And Sweet Potatoes with a tiny bit of organic white grape juice. We use white grape juice since it is the easiest juice for infants to digest, is high in vitamin C, has equal parts glucose and fructose, and helps heal the intestines. I’ve tried regular water and little man wasn’t a fan. It’s hard for me to pump, but I will occasionally add if I have any. The mix easily thickens and you can decide how thick or runny you’d like the mix.

Little man loves it! He’s not big on many purees, but he has loved everything we’ve tried fromNurturMe! They also have flavors like Peas, Quinoa, And Apples, Bananas, Oatmeal, And Sweet Potatoes, Squash, Bananas, And Green Kale, plus singles like apples, peas, sweet potato, squash, and bananas.
