Heinz Baby Food Pouches {Review}

By Contributor Tamara Goyette

Often you really want ease and portability when it comes to feeding your baby or toddler, and food pouches are a great way to have just that. You especially want this when you are going to be out and about, and you want to make sure you have a convenient, but also nutritious meal for your child that you know they will enjoy.

Heinz has a large selection of baby food pouches to select from for ages 6 months to 4 years old. When you see the ouches in store you notice that they are organized into different stages: Stage 2 for six months and up, Stage 3 for eight months and up, and Little Kids which is for kids one to four years old. Each stage has different fruit, vegetable, meat, and combination options. There are also organic food pouches that have the same great options. You will also notice when you see Heinz baby food pouches in store that they are colour coded. The organic ones are green, Stage 2 is blue, Stage 3 is a red, and Little Kids pouches are yellow.


I really appreciate that when I read the ingredient label on these food pouches, I know what is exactly in them. The labels also clearly indicate that there are no added sugars, salt, fillers, or artificial colours. There are also several gluten free options.

I have had so many people say how convenient these food pouches are, when they see my daughter eating one, and how they wish they had been around when their children were little. The flavours in these little pouches are great – yes I taste tested them. If you have a picky eater who may not like their veggies the combination pouches are great because they will never know that they are actually eating some vegetables!

Since I have a toddler, I simply put one or two of these in my diaper bad when I go out during the day with my daughter and I don’t worry about needing a spoon to feed her it. My daughter will happily eat a whole pouch in one sitting. If you have a younger child, bring a baby spoon with you and that way you can put some onto a spoon for them to eat. You can serve these food pouches at room temperature, warmed up when poured into a bowl, or cold. For warm days, I like to keep some of these pouches in the fridge so that the food pouch is nice and cool for eating. The pouches become a smoothie treat, without the mess of having to pull out the blender.
