Semper baby food – hit or miss?
Our son is a BLW baby which means that since the age of 5,5 months he’s been eating by himself and eating everything we had for dinner. No baby-mushy food at all. So when we were asked if we wanted to try out Semper‘s new porridge I was a little skeptical – what would it look like, my son trying to eat porridge by himself, spoon-less? Would he even like it?
As it turns out, he does! And I completely understand why. When they say, “with apple” they mean apple, not apple-taste. I once drank 1 liter of “100% apple juice”. I can tell you now, there wasn’t an ounce of apple in it. I’m highly allergic to apple so if I can take it, there’s no apple in it. Semper’s Wholegrain Porridge with Pear and Apple made my allergy go crazy so I know for a fact that they use good quality products 😉 There is no sugar in it at all (which you can also easily taste) which means I don’t mind giving my son Semper even though it isn’t homemade. Sugar and preservatives is a no-go for parents so that’s another huge reason we’ve fallen in love with Semper – they only use natural ingredients.
You just mix the Semper powder with water and there’s your meal. We’re weaning him off his bottle now so we’ve started introducing Semper porridge for breakfast as a substitute. While it’s much more clean-up for mommy, the kid really enjoys it 😉
We’ve tried a few different versions and pretty much all of them were a hit. Personally I think the Dinner porridge with Rice, Pasta and Carrot is a little bland on it’s own, but very nice if you add some veggies yourself. The absolute favorite, though, is Wholegrain Porridge with Pear, Apple and Raspberries. We always have to serve two portions of that one!
There are quite a few varieties to choose from. They start from 4 months to 1 year, so it’s easy to pick something for your baby that fits his or hers current needs. You can see all of them here on Semper’s website. No matter if you swear to homemade food like us or just give your kid bought food, Semper is definitely recommendable. It’s also super easy to take along on a trip if you have a non-BLW baby because all you need is water and the powder. 5 stars from here! We’re really positively surprised (:
PS – you don’t really have to be a baby to eat Semper’s porridge… it’s great for a healthy snack 😉
