Recently my little boy hWhere does your baby food come from?as been most unwell. I find each time one of my kids get sick the fridge magically changes into a big white box full of greens that the kids turn their noses up at. Traditionally two weeks later my husband cleans out the fridge producing not so healthy looking fruit and veg over the top of the fridge door with the comment “are we finished with this, how bout this… and this”? As usual I explain my reasons for the fridge looking like an abandoned farm with him rolling his eyes mumbling about our own veggie garden… at which I roll my eyes. As if I have time to tend to a veggie garden! He understands my intentions are good, but doesn’t seem to appreciate my efforts when the outcome is a full bin.

My friend Cathy though would be proud of these good intentions.  She is highly conscious of healthy eating but mWhere does your baby food come fromore importantly where the food comes from we put in front of our kids. I have discovered through my parenting lectures that there are a lot of Cathys out there, parents looking for easy baby and toddler food options only containing the good stuff, steering clear of colours and preservatives and made with as much care as we would in our own homes. Me however, I am no foodie and don’t naturally ponder on such things. I want someone else to do it for me that knows a little more about good food than myself. Fortunately for us mums, someone does and has been preparing baby food for more than 60 years!

Heinz have developed a baby food range rightfully named The Good Stuff containing quality ingredients produced in the ONLY specialised pouch and jar baby food facility in Echuca, Victoria Australia.
