We are going camping for a fortnight in August. Today I gave ds2 an Ella's beef stew pouch, he sucked it out of the pouch and loved it! I realised this would be a hygienic and convenient way to feed him while we are away (he does eat lots of finger food but not always enough to be satisfied, depending on what the family is eating), but they are so expensive.

Do you know of any cheaper alternatives (not just fruit purees) or anywhere that has Ella's on offer at the moment?

Thanks smile

Oh I loved Ella's pouches when DD was little, they are SO handy! smile Never found a cheaper alternative though! But there were a few different supermarkets by us and there always seemed to be one with an offer on them. I think Hipp Organic may do them now too, but I've no idea of the price, sorry!

sainsburys do own brand pouches, not massively cheaper but a bit. do a search on for offers. sainsburys had some good offers when i went yesterday but think it was mainly the hipp plastic pots.

Thanks Ivy. DH has just told me he saw some in the pound shop once. If they have stage 2 ones that would be cheaper than the supermarket!

I've never used amazon's grocery section before, but you can get multiple packs for less than they would be individually here

Thanks natural, will check mysupermarket. Might see about subscribing to Amazon then cancelling it!
