EcoMom Review and Giveaway!

WooHoo!  My long awaited first giveaway is here!  Sorry it took so long but I wanted to make sure I did my best on this since it is my first of many (I hope)!

EcoMom was so gracious to send me a Plum Organics Sampler for Little L to try out!  Now, I don't really consider my self to be very "crunchy" or "green" but I do like to make sure that my babe gets the best foods to help her grow (not to say that she hasn't sampled such fabulous food offerings as the pop tart and bologna but lets not focus on that right now...).  Needless to say I was really excited for the chance to try out some healthy snack options for Little L and share my thoughts with you!  The sampler I received had a box of Plum Organics Apple Carrot Fiddlesticks and a couple Plum Organics Strawberry Mish Mash and Plum Organics Peach Mish Mash.

Little L was excited to see what was in the box when I opened it up and the first thing she wanted me to do was open up the Fiddlesticks!  She seemed to like them well enough and I really like the fact that they have veggies in them.  They are shaped like sticks which is fun and not like any of the other snacks I have gotten for her before.  The texture is perfect since they aren't to hard but they aren't too mushy or crumbly either!

What a look!




Next we tried out the Mish Mash, which is basically fruit puree in a pouch.  The first one Little L tried went FAST!  She basically sucked the whole thing down and didn't even make a mess (which I have to admit I was expecting it to be pretty messy).  She has since eaten the other samples we got and unfortunately our no mess run didn't last very long...but I have to say they are super yummy!  (Yes I steal my babe's snacks sometimes...I'm not afraid to admit it!)  I think what I like the most about these is their packaging.  They don't require refrigeration before opening so they would be great to throw in the diaper bag for those much needed snacks-before-a-meltdown-happens moments!  Another bonus is the fact that you can close them up again with the screw on cap in case your little one doesn't finish the whole thing.

Go EricaE! : ) So proud of you!!

My baby is not a huge juice fan. I think she'd much more enjoy the fiddlesticks (mmm... berry!) or fingerfuls (probably the bananas).

Look at you go, Erica! Congrats on getting this all going!

Ok, I think that all of the foods from baby to toddler to kids look great. I know that Maddie would love any of the finger foods, and I would like any of the veggie purees to feed to Canden since we are just getting started!

OK - so once I got on their site, it was hard to stop browsing. Love it! My faves so far is definately anything in a pouch. We've been eating bananas through a mesh bag lately and the cleaning half is a bit of a handful without a dishwasher! I also liked the fluid sippy cup - very cool. Jodi bought me a transition cup but Lucas has trouble tipping his head and gets frustrated. I would love to try this one - looks very kid friendly! Thanks for sharing the site Erica...

Subscribed to Ecomom's newsletter. I am not a twitter gal, so here's to hoping the three entries I posted is enough! I've got me eyes set on that sippy cup!
