Oh, Baby! All Natural Baby Food

I attended a press conference yesterday at Je Suis Gourmand at The Fort for the Oh, Baby! All Natural Baby Food Press Launch. You can read the details of the event here.

So what is Oh, Baby! All Natural Baby Food? As the name suggests, it's baby food that's made from fresh, natural ingredients. It's packed with the vitamins and minerals your toddler needs -- and without any preservatives, additives, or other stuff that can be unhealthy for kids. They are created by chefs Tina Trillana-Lagdameo and Rebecca Disini-Gomez who, as moms, wanted to give their kids healthier food options than those currently found in supermarkets.

The product line consists of Stage 1 and Stage 2 food. Stage 1 is for babies 6 to 9 months old and are just starting on solids. The Stage 1 food of Oh, Baby! are more like pureed vegetables stored in glass jars. You can feed it as is or mix it with other vegetables or fruits for added flavor.
Potato and Apple, Stage 1 food (6-9 months)
The Stage 2 food has more texture, great for toddlers 9 months onwards. Items included in this line, aside from the jarred variants, are teething biscuits and cookies.

Aside from being nutritious, their prices are friendly on the pocket. The jarred food costs Php70.00 and the biscuits and cookies are priced at Php90.00.

As a reminder, though, the Oh, Baby! All Natural Baby Food line is to be consumed immediately. Because it has no preservatives, it has a relatively short life. If unopened, it can last for about a month. But when opened, they should be consumed in about 2 days and stored in the refrigerator. But I don't think you'll have a problem feeding these to your kids, because these are delicious -- I've actually tasted the Tomato variant and it's great when mixed with meat and other veggies.
