Y’all, I have finally come to accept it. I have a picky toddler. I feel like a failure of a mom and I’m not even sure what happened or when it all started. We fed her everything as an infant including all fruits and veggies. But then Berklee learned the word “no.” Now, every time we give her a plate of veggies, our bossy little girl says “nnno Mom” and shoves it off her high chair.
I was desperate to find a way of getting her the key nutrients she needed, so I started doing some research. We stumbled upon Once Upon A Farm and fell in love with the concept of fresh, organic pouches made to preserve the nutrients, flavors, textures, aromas, and color of the whole food fruit and vegetable.
We ordered the sample pack and were instantly relieved to see how quickly our daughter took to the flavors. I mean, she devoured the first pouch.
The sample pack included 8 flavors: Wild Rumpus Avocado, OhMyMega Veggie, Green Kale & Apples, Sun-Shiny Strawberry Patch, Carrot-y Coconut-y Quinoa, Mama Bear Blueberry, Magic Velvet Mango, and Chocolate Ever After (Berklee’s personal favorite– I wonder why?)
What’s so special about Once Upon A Farm? They put it this way, “Any fresher, you would have to pick it yourself.”
Their pouches are:
- BPA, Phthalate, and PVC Free
- Cold-Pressure Protected
- Healthy fats for optimal brain development and nutrient absorption.
- Certified Kosher
- Certified Organic
- Never use any concentrates, processed purees, or preservatives.
- Recommended by Pediatricians.
- Infant Nutritionist approved.
As a mother, it gives me great peace of mind knowing that not only will my daughter get the proper nutrients, but she will enjoy eating them too! Phew!
Crafty Mommy Alert! Did you know the caps are re-usable? We saved ours to make a fun Thanksgiving craft yesterday evening. We used the caps as the feathers of a turkey and Berklee’s little foot as the body. Just add some googly eyes and draw on a beak and feet — viola!
