The boy loves to eat. The day he was born, he was scooching across my chest to get to the milk. At 4 months, he started eating cereal and was up to 3-4 tbsp three times a day, within a week. He's a little piggie, and I'm ok with it. The hubs and I are eaters too, I just hope this next baby eats well or I'll probably worry that he/she is starving.
With the exception of our trip to Asia, I made all of the boys baby food from scratch and there wasn't much he turned his nose up at. One of the things I struggled with however, was transporting babyfood; I'd perpetually find myself toting around three to four tupperware containers of various shapes and sizes.
I recently had the chance to try out Wean Green Glass Baby Food Containers and I could immediately see that they were a great solution. The small uniformly shaped containers are made of glass, which is both recyclable and sustainable, they are BPA, PVC, Phthalates, and Plasticizer free and these little gems are able to withstand both freezing and heating. They come with bright coloured lids that seal without leaking and each cube holds 4 ounces of food and even includes measuring lines so that you can easily see how much your little one has eaten.
Since the boy has now bypassed the 'baby food' stage, we tested out the Wean Green cubes from a toddler perspective. The boy loved them. He quickly figured out how to unsnap the lids and would happily carry the little cubes around and eat his grapes, cereal or other snacking delight. My sister was concerned that he might break the cube, but so far so good. I however, did manage to knock one off the counter while doing the dishes with disastrous results. Moral of the story; Wean Green Baby Food Containers are durable, but not unbreakable.
Wean Green is a Canadian company developed by a real Momma who is committed to healthy living and happy babies. The company even participates in 1% for the Planet - a program that truly allows business owners to give within their means. At a price of $28 for four cubes Wean Green Baby Food Containers feel expensive, but they are high quality, food-safe containers, definitley a situation where I would consider paying more. Wean Green provides a great product that we have thoroughly enjoyed testing out in our home.
