    GREAT Product, Delicious Flavor!, March 12, 2012

    This review is from: Plum Organics Baby Second Blends, Spinach, Peas and Pear, 4 Ounce Pouches (Pack of 12) (Grocery)
    Plum Organics is a really good product, and this flavor is no exception. My 8-month old loves, loves, loves the Spinach, Peas & Pear combo…more so than any other brand out there. She is keen on savory foods and I guess this qualifies because she can’t get enough of it! It is still sweet, but not overwhelming so, and you can really smell the spinach in it, which I think is a good thing.

    As far as the integrity of the product is concerned, I also give it a 5 star. After researching “where” the product is made, it has become apparent to me in talking both with Plum Baby Organics and the distributor, Oregon Tilth, that most of the main ingredients are made in the U.S. and not in China. The bulk of their ingredients come from Emeryville, CA. The exception would be fruit such as bananas, mangoes and other tropical fruit come from Mexico. So, until proven otherwise, I will continue purchasing their products gladly and quite satisfied. I was also quite pleased that I actually spoke with representatives from both companies in a timely manner. I will gladly support small businesses such as Plum, especially knowing that they are endeavoring to provide a quality product for our children.

    Yummy yummy! ….oh, and in this case, don’t be overly concerned about “China”, June 24, 2014

    My 22 month old daughter LOVES the Plum Fruit pouches. I always taste new food that I give to her, and I was pleasantly surprised how delicious the flavors are. Most canned/jarred food tastes to me as if it is decomposing right there in the jar! But I found these fruit flavor to be very fresh and delicious. I am concerned about what she eats, I pack her lunch for daycare everyday, she doesn’t eat any overly processed foods, she eats lots of fresh fruits and veggies, she’s never had high fructose corn syrup and I feel confident including Plum Organics Pouches as a snack a few times each week. The ONLY ingredients are the fruit and occasionally some lemon juice is added.

    Make note!! You get TWO boxes of SIX (12 total pouches)

    Concerned about China? It’s a shame that people post alarming reviewed without understanding the facts. The pouches are made in China, as are probably 90% of all packaging of of foods you and your family consume. HOWEVER, some important points:
    (1) The contents (the fruit puree) are made in NORTH AMERICA, from mostly North American produce, but some tropical fruits come from South America
    (2) The packaging is created in China and is made from 3 layers of material, including aluminum foil and the inner layer is PET (polyethylene) which has been determined safe and is BPA free. The CREATORS of the pouch are a partnership of a Japanese, an Italian and a US company. The just outsource the manufacturing to China. The machine that fuses the pouch together is made in Italy, so it’s not like the “evil” Chinese could just switch out the pouch liner for a different chemical based plastic – it wouldn’t work in the machinery.
    (3) The pouches are sterilized during the filling process and the Ph level is maintained below the amount at which microbes can multiply.

    It is true that China doesn’t always have the best food practices, but this food is NOT manufactured in China, just the pouches using non-Chinese technology and machinery.

    Yummy way to get veggies!, February 14, 2012

    My 24 month old LOVES these packs. He has been going through a phase of not eating veggies, so this was a way for me to get him to have some. He recognizes the pouch when I give it to him, and he squeals in delight to get one. He frequently asks for a pouch whenever I pick him up after work. This is one of his favorite flavors! Will purchase again!
