Organix Goodies: Organic Squeezy Blueberry, Blackberry & Pear Puree and Apple & Blackcurrant Fruit & Water drink

Lexi has always been quite a fussy eater; much preferring crisps, cheese and yoghurts to just about anything else and only wanting to drink water or milk. So when I was asked to review the squeezy fruit puree and fruit & water from Organix’s Goodies range of foods I was delighted as I was ever hopeful that Lexi would eat and drink something more nutritious and healthy and actually enjoy it rather than clam up and shake her head ‘No’ when anything fruit or vegetable related came near her mouth! The nearest I had previously gotten to success was her eating chunks of apple with her cheese and hiding strawberries and such in her yoghurt!
Organic Squeezy Blueberry, Blackberry & Pear Puree

You can imagine how happy I was when she absolutely LOVED the puree! I couldn’t fill the spoon and pop it into her mouth fast enough! As you can see, she got so impatient with her slow Mummy’s spoon feeding attempts that she much preferred to just squeeze the pouch straight into her mouth! And, with a little help from Mummy, she managed to not make too much mess - although to actually see her eating something so nutritious, I honestly wouldn’t have minded how much mess she made!
The “No Junk Promise” means that not only is it absolutely delicious, but it also boasts no added sugar, no artificial colours or flavours and is 100% organic fruit. Added to which each 100g squeezy pouch is 1 of my precious little angel’s 5 a day! It is also suitable for vegetarians (like me!) and gluten free and dairy free! Perfect for all toddlers!
This particular squeezy consisted of: 4/5 pear (65%), 8 blueberries (15%), 2 blackberries (15%) and 1/10 banana (5%).

Suitable for toddlers 12+ months, it is absolutely perfect for popping into a handbag or changing bag to take out as a snack. I would probably not bother even taking a spoon as Lexi much preferred squeezing it straight into her mouth from the pouch and it means that her already bulging changing bag can easily accommodate one little pouch without any fuss or worry. I would definitely recommend taking some baby wipes though as, with all the enthusiasm of being a ‘big girl’ and eating the puree by herself, there was purple fruit smeared on just about every inch of her chin and all around her mouth so baby wipes are a must if eaten out and about. The fact that they are resealable also makes them brilliant for taking out and about as nothing is wasted. Lexi munched the whole pouch in one sitting but, if she had left any, I could have popped it into the fridge for the next day!
Being suitable for vegetarians, Mummy even had a taste of the puree and I too thought it was delicious! No wonder Lexi gobbled it down so quickly! The puree is smooth, sweet without being sickly, bright purple - showing how fruity it really is, and is a lovely consistency - not too thin and runny, but is also not too thick and viscous.

Organic Fruit & Water: Apple & Blackcurrant flavour

Also boasting the same credentials of having no added sugar, no added preservatives and no artificial colours or flavours whilst also not being made from concentrate this juice is just great! It is 60% water and 60% fruit - 21% apple, 10% grapes and 9% blackcurrants. It has added Vitamin C making it even more nourishing.

So again, I was absolutely ecstatic when Lexi absolutely loved it! She guzzled it down with a look of delight and I carried it around with her the entire day taking swigs or it whilst out in the garden. Even offering it to a little sparrow who came to play! Although the sparrow didn’t want any, Mummy did take a sip - it was scrumptious and really thirst quenching. Really fruity and sweet. The vivid colour makes it so enticing for little ones that they can’t help but be intrigued and want to take a drink... And once they’ve taken one sip, they can’t help but love it and want more!
Unlike other pull top spout bottles, I was impressed that this top actually stayed up and I didn’t have to keep pulling it up for Lexi to be able to drink from it. She pulled it up herself and it stayed up until she pushed it down herself when she had had enough. Another perfect item to pack into the changing bag to take out and about with us as the bottle is just the right size to keep her thirst quenched whilst out for a few hours.
For more information, check out their website: www.organix.com/goodies/our-foods where you can find their extensive range of foods including other flavours: kiwi, pear and banana; strawberry, banana and pear; and mango, pear and orange. There are also many other appetising foods and drinks. Yum!
So if you too would like to get something nutritious and exciting down your little one; I would definitely recommend Organix Goodies Squeezy and Organic Fruit & Water. Definitely Loved by Lexi!

  2. And that is why it is so important for everybody who loves and cares for a pets to have the appropriate information. It
    is therefore important to purchase a policy with an average deductible amount as higher deductibles will only serve to negate the whole purpose of having pet insurance.

    In addition, the Animal Welfare League hits the streets and encourages pet adoption.

  3. I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a
    blog that's equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy I came across this in my hunt for something
    regarding this.
