Baby Food To Boast About

The Owl and The Pussycat Chilled Baby Food
Organic, fresh and delicious.  At last, I have found a company who puts their money where their mouth is.  They succeed where other baby food manufacturers have failed.

Many have claimed to produce tasty, organic baby food but my babies have always shunned the stuff.  Ultra heat-treated and slimy-textured, they may be labelled differently but they all taste the same.  Babies of discerning taste who love home-cooking are not easily fooled.

But sometimes, as a mum, I need a break.  Taking a road trip, visiting friends or even, let’s face it, making life easier for myself at home, it is good to have pre-prepared baby food in stock.  The Owl and The Pussycat’s new range of chilled baby food is all it purports to be.  “Just the way you’d make it,” is the claim and, I would argue, slightly better than I would have made it, in fact.

The recipes are adventurous and tasty (even by adult standards) with the texture of real ingredients.  The fact that it’s organic is just the icing on the cake.

Each pack of The Owl and The Pussycat chilled baby food contains two individual 100g pots, for £2.79.  It’s pricy, yes, but you’re getting high-quality, organic food that is genuinely tasty and nutritious.  To me, there is no comparison with conventional jars of baby food, which I simply would not buy for my children.

You can find The Owl and The Pussycat food in the fridge section of Waitrose or online at Ocado.  If, like me, you don’t regularly shop there, you can stock up the freezer as you would with portions of home-made food.

How do you fancy:

  • Sweet potato with chicken, French beans and coriander,
  • Tomato and celeriac risotto with cheddar cheese
  • Parsnip with beef and apple?

Personally, I My six-month-old daughter thought they were all delicious.  The fact that they are lightly steamed and then chilled means that the food has real flavour and nutritional value.

I have yet to sample the recently launched sweet dishes from The Owl and The Pussycat but they are sure to be delicious.  The proof of the pudding?  Only one way to find out!
