the bébé-bar™: I'll take pureed carrots on ice

the bébé-bar™: I'll take pureed carrots on ice 1In my experience, the hardest age to feed a baby is between about 8 months and 13 months. From birth to 6 months, my daughter drank only "mama's milk" (which was pretty straightforward). Between 6 and 8 months, she ate some breastmilk/cereal bites and some blended fruits and veggies, but breastmilk still was her primary sustenance. Between 8 months and 13 months, it seemed harder because we had to cut everything into itty bitty bites and we had to either feed her ourselves or give her foods that were easily self-served. 

We never worried much about preparing separate meals for her palatte. From the beginning, she's had corn and sweet tomatoes, chili and quesadillas, spaghetti and grilled chicken, even peanuts and salsa. Just last night, my husband gave her part of a jalapeno stuffed olive and she loved it! We're fortunate that she's not very picky and she'll try anything (although she definitely has her favorites - macaroni and cheese, peas, corn, noodles, berries, fruit leathers, and m & m's). 

Still, it's hard when you have to spoon the food bite-by-bite into baby's mouth (that's the most tiresome stage, I think) and/or when you have to think of foods to serve that are easy to self-feed (but that are also healthy).  

the bébé-bar™: I'll take pureed carrots on ice 2pomme bébé, a new company based in Newport Beach, CA, understands this dilemma. Founder Svetla Lazarova Kibota's goal is to bring "flavorful, nutritious, and convenient meal-options to busy families who want only the best for their children." pomme bebe specializes in "purely organic, freshly-cooked, homemade meals for babies and toddlers."

With pomme bébé, your baby can enjoy fresh, nutritious meals delivered to your door - the spring seasonal menu includes items like Apple Blueberry Blend, Chicken Asparagus Orzo, and Cauliflower Carrot Puree. Menu items are divided by age (6+ months, 8+ months, 12+ months) and are delivered nationwide. 

the bébé-bar™: I'll take pureed carrots on ice 3All meals can be purchased or tested by child and parent alike at the bébé-bar™ in Newport Beach, CA (cool!) or you can visit the online store and place your order. pomme bébé will flash freeze your organic meals to lock-in the freshness and will ship them directly to your front door in environmentally-friendly insulated containers over dry ice. 

If I were in Newport, I think I would definitely stop in at the bébé-bar™. It sounds like a fun concept. That said, I don't think I would order foods for delivery when I can just as easily mash up an avocado or a banana or puree some blueberries on my own. 

But what about you? Would you/have you consider(ed) ordering from a specialty baby food company like pomme bébé?

  3. I have a hard time with my kids eating their veggies but serving it in this form just might work!

  4. Pureed carrots on ice; well what about mixed vegetable/pureed on ice. Go and love the designer entry name that is also so qualitative for health/dietary. Many thanks for the entry!! SW

  5. This food sounds delicious for my baby! Store bought baby food doesn't even look appealing and it definitely isn't nutritous. I would love to feed my baby organic, healthy, and delicious meals!

  6. yeah right. my daughter won't eat purees and she is 7 months. she just keeps trying little finger foods and choking. love to put their products to the test!

  7. What a great idea! Count me in! My son is five months and is just starting on his first foods, and I had no idea of the coming "difficult" period. These foods would surely help during that time!

  8. I think this is a good idea, I doubt I would use it as a service because I make all my own food, but I would take inspiration from it... If I was a busy working Mom, I'd definitely be into it.

  9. I wanted to make my daughter's food but with being a single mom and working full time I just don't have the time. This company sounds wonderful and I would love to have fresher baby food for Brea. Thanks

  10. Wow - what a great idea. I was just thinking how much I am starting to hate coming up with food for my 12 month old to eat. This would be awesome.

  11. What a neat place in Newport. I just started my baby on food but she's not too thrilled. Much rather have mama's milk. She's 7 months and she is really watching everyone else eat, her eyes travel from the fork to the mouth. I know she wants it, she just doesn't want to work at it in her mouth moving it to the back and swallowing. I'd love to try a sampler.

  12. What a great idea for a store. I cannot imagine going to a store with baby food on the menu!! All of the food looks so fresh and the colors are amazing. I have tried to make my own baby food but it never went over real well. I would love to win this.

  13. Even though I usually just mash up food for my baby, it would be nice to win a stash for the freezer. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  14. Yummy! I hope everyone that entered checked out their site! Although we make our own baby food, we (well she) would love their sampler. I am not that creative.


  15. This is definitely intriguing. I would have to see what the cost was before deciding. Thanks for the contest!

  16. Oh, man, I wish I lived near Newport Beach--that brick and mortar BeBeBar would be a killer mommy-daughter date! :) We would love to try these here at our home, too, though--what a fabulous, fresh idea. :) Thanks for the chance!

  17. It brings new meaning to the phrase "belly up to the bar!" I visit family in Newport Beach, so I will have to check this out just for the photo op!

    I would love to have a little stash in the freezer - I'm planning to make my own food but I know there will be those days when time just won't allow it - or when there's no food in the house to mash!

  18. I like to win this for my daughter who has a newborn and a 3 year old. Please count me in. Thanks!

  19. My daughter would love this! I make an effort to make my own food for her, but that's a little meal all in itself -- I need some relief sometimes!

  20. Like several of the commenters above, I made homemade baby food for my daughter. I took some time, but it was worth it to know exactly what was going into her little body. This service sounds great for Moms who have the money but not the time.

  21. This sounds very convenient but I imagine would be cost prohibitive for most young families with a stay at home mom!

  22. I probably wouldn't spend my own money on it, but I'd love to try this. I really should try making my own baby food this time 'round, too; I never did with my eldest. Hmmm. gumbi1313 at msn dot com

  23. This sounds amazing! I really want my son to develop a curious palate and have a wide array of flavors and tastes at a young age.

  24. Haha!!!! I'm laughing because I was just there last week!!!!! I did a review (I'll tell you where and when it will be posted after it's up) and the place is AWESOME!!! My son loved the food although he isn't crazy about textures yet so we didn't get into the 3rd stages. The pomme bar is awesome with fancy euro-highchairs.

  25. Hi, it's me again. I am the one who does not have a baby, but I love babies, especially those whose families need all the help they can get. If I am the lucky winner, I will make another baby very lucky who needs the food. I would donate the food to the Community Survival Center so that a baby doesn't have to go hungry.



  26. I have made baby food for my two kids and it's fairly easy, so this would be a nice break. I would love to try it. Thanks

  27. this is not only a great prize but certainly a must have. i can see that if i'd known about this product earlier I'd have it sitting in my house right now.

  28. I was nodding during this entire post. I'm so thankful that my son is old enough now (17 months) that we can just offer him whatever we're having for dinner. Although I admit that I often plan my meals around what will give me the least mess factor!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  29. I was just thinking about my daughter's eating habits and how I need to be a little more wise in how I feed her!

  30. Wow! How fun! If I was super busy with work and could afford the luxury, I'd definitely use Pomme Bebe. Like you, I use my blender or just mash up foods for Calvin. However, I think it'd be an especially fantastic option for mom's/babies who often are traveling or on the go and need healthy options.

  31. Perfect for Lily. She is a newborn, and thus far is a totally 'Green' baby. The Spring Seasonal Menu with the Chicken and the Apple Blueberries sounds lish! The Pretty in Pink Blanket, also perfect for Spring! Beautiful! Thank you Metropolitan Mama and Pomme BeBe.

  32. I want all the best for my one and only grandaughter! I would love to send her this package....after all, 8 months is the perfect time to develope "good taste".

  33. I wish I could be as creative as all the other mothers, I've just stuck to the jar foods but would love to try this! And wish one of these bebe bars would open up in FL!

  34. I think it looks like an extremely fun place to visit but I'm with you when it comes to ordering. I couldn't fork over (no pun intended) the moola for something easily done and home. I'm pretty much like that with everything and my friends joke that when I see something I like I say "That would be easy to make!". Sometimes I attempt it and sometimes I don't. I do think looking at the menu would be a good way to get more ideas for homemade yummies though.

  35. What could be better than healthy food for your baby
    that you don't have to prepare. It would be a rare
    thing for me if I ordered any. It's much easier and
    cheaper to mash the foods up myself.Thanks for the

  36. What a neat treat this would be! I planned on and really wanted to make my own baby food but I didn't make it work. I would still love to try with the next one! Thanks!

  37. Oh, what a neat idea! Like Annie, I make my son his food with fresh fruit and veggies, but it IS some work. It's definitely worth it, though, to aviod all those preservative that are in the jarred baby foods. Plus, it's way cheaper!

    This sounds like a great place, though. I can't say I'd order from them much, but it could be nice once in a while! Thanks for sharing!

  38. I admit, it is extremely tempting to have, not a full daily menu, but maybe a once or twice a week stock of such fresh, healthy food for my little guy! most of the time I make his food, and I love fresh fruit and veggies, but it sure does get tiring! And I lose creativity fast! (hes had more than his fair share of canned beans, peas, banana pieces, and yogurt!) if I had the extra cash, I'd certainly be tempted to buy back stock. ....or maybe I'll consider giving such a luxury as a baby shower gift for my girlfriend! :) Thanks!
