So, you guys may already know that we do baby-led weaning with Lola and while I love so many things about that eating style, mealtimes are certainly more work in general with all the bibs, highchair and floor cleanings, and making sure that we are either making food she can eat too (modifying it as needed for her) or making her a different meal if ours won’t work for her for some reason. While we try and eat healthy and homemade plant-based meals as often as we can, there are definitely times in the week when we are either too exhausted to cook dinner or out of healthy options so we grab a processed frozen dinner or piece together some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches which always leaves us with the question of, “What’s Lola going to eat?” When Raised Real contacted me about doing a sponsored post, all I could think was “YES, YES, YES!” They make organically-sourced plant-based/vegan meals for babies (free of the top 8 food allergies) that you can either steam and puree or just steam and leave whole if you are doing baby-led weaning like we are. They send you 20 frozen packaged meals with ingredients that are clearly labeled (all in separate BPA-free bags) with a rotating variety of veggies and grains so Baby eats different things and learns to experience new food as well. You can either use one of their small machines that steams and purees or you can make it in a stainless steel steamer on the stove like we usually do to steam her veggies. You can either make this a continual membership where they deliver every 2 weeks to use as your main meals for Baby, or you can skip deliveries and have less on hand to use like I’ve been doing to help out when you’ve got a gap in your Baby mealtime planning. Either way, this is definitely something that I would love to use in the future to help make parenting easier at times…I mean, who can’t use a little (or a lot!) of help here and there, right? The first 50 people that order a Raised Real box with the code LAURA25 can get $25 off their first order! Give it a try and I hope you love your meals as much as Lola (and we) do!
