This was one of our favorite baby food brands. Sprout creates wonderful blends of food to introduce children to new tastes and textures, which is a great way to ensure that picky eating is at a minimum. These food combinations are so similar to many adult meals. I loved seeing my son try and enjoy these unique combinations, and I even got some ideas for dinners for myself and my husband! Quality of Ingredients Sprout uses fantastic ingredients. It was a big relief to know I could trust the organic ingredients in the baby food to be gentle on my son's young stomach and provide him with lots of vital nutrients. Safety Sprout is a very reliable brand, so the (very slightly) lower rating has nothing to do with the product itself. The problem was with the pouches. If your child does not eat all of the food in the pouch at once, do NOT store the leftovers in the pouch. Just transfer whatever is left to a container you can seal completely. I made the mistake of not doing that and the food did not keep, but I caught it before serving it to my son, thankfully! It is an easy fix, but slightly inconvenient at times.
