Take babies on a taste adventure with Plum – Plum launches new pots for babies with an appetite for adventure!
While I was at Plum Cookery School, I had the opportunity to find out more about Plum Taste Adventures range and we even cooked from scratch one of the recipes. Organic baby food brand, Plum is launching a new range of stage three (10+months) meals, enabling mini adventurers to taste flavours from around the world; no wok or paella pan required.
Plum’s chefs are calling on experiences from their travels to give babies the chance to taste authentic, international flavours so often enjoyed by their parents. The textures and spices in each carefully created recipe ensure a new taste adventure, all wrapped up in one reassuringly healthy pot.
With research from the University of Bristol suggesting that the range of tastes a baby is exposed to during their early years has a direct impact upon a baby’s taste buds later in life, there’s no better way to ensure your child grows up to enjoy a varied, balanced diet.
Plum’s Taste Adventures stage three range (10+ months) consists of four mouth-watering recipes, ready to eat from the pot. Convenient for mum and exciting for baby, the range comprises of:
Sweet cape curry with beef: Based on the traditional dish bobotie from South Africa, this flavoursome curry boasts red meat as a source of iron with a combination of mango and raisins to provide sweet flavours and subtle spices to excite baby’s palette.
Chickpea and chicken tagine: A Moroccan recipe which is already one of Plum’s bestselling stage three recipes completes the Taste Adventures range. Organic chicken and vegetables are combined with protein and calcium rich chickpeas and garlic and cumin for a flavour straight from the souk.
Mediterranean paella and salmon: A taste of Spanish sunshine packed with salmon for fish oils and omega 3 to aid baby’s brain development.
Aubergine and lamb moussaka: A Greek favourite which can now be enjoyed by even the youngest members of the family. The organic lamb is farmed from top quality sources; ensuring baby only gets the best.
The recipes boast a chunkier texture to encourage speech development as well as helping babies to chew. The pot format is perfect for independent babies starting to use a spoon to feed themselves.
Plum’s Taste Adventures stage three range is available from Ocado and Sainsbury from mid-June and during July and August in Asda, Tesco and Boots, RRP £1.79 for 190g pot.
