Organic baby food brand, Plum, is launching a new range of stage three (10+months) meals, enabling mini adventurers to taste flavours from around the world; no wok or paella pan required.
Sweet cape curry with beef
Based on the traditional dish bobotie from South Africa, this flavoursome curry boasts red meat as a source of iron with a combination of mango and raisins to provide sweet flavours and subtle spices to excite baby’s palette.
Chickpea and chicken tagineA Moroccan recipe which is already one of Plum’s bestselling stage three recipes completes the Taste Adventures range. Organic chicken and vegetables are combined with protein and calcium rich chickpeas and garlic and cumin for a flavour straight from the souk.
Mediterranean paella and salmonA taste of Spanish sunshine packed with salmon for fish oils and omega 3 to aid baby’s brain development.
Aubergine and lamb moussaka
A Greek favourite which can now be enjoyed by even the youngest members of the family. The organic lamb is farmed from top quality sources; ensuring baby only gets the best. The recipes boast a chunkier texture to encourage speech development as well as helping babies to chew. The pot format is perfect for independent babies starting to use a spoon to feed themselves
- Free moving food – Often baby food especially those in jars, the food is solid whereas the food could easily move about and gave you an idea of consistency before opening.
- Long expiry date – The pots that I received had a whole year left on them before they expired, sometimes you can buy food with such a short date on.
- Reusable pots – the pots are a great size so could be easily reused for crafts, plants or jelly moulds.
Plum’s Taste Adventures stage three range is available from Ocado and Sainsbury from mid-June and during July and August in Asda, Tesco and Boots, RRP £1.79 for 190g pot
