Can anyone recommend brands that do single veg? I want to do the more bitter veg first but from the pouches I can see eg Ella’s kitchen they are usually blended with something sweeter.

Why don't you prepare them? Or make soups?

There aren’t many as you have seen. They move on quickly to mixed food so maybe just boil up some veg to give? Putting it in an ice cube tray works well as you can give they veg separately or mixed then.

Better to make your own. Bought “veg” pouches are always packed with puréed fruit which really isn’t good for babies. It’s all the sugar and none of the fibre.

Thanks, I did want to make my own but with older two and my other responsibilities I’m just about keeping up with cooking fresh food for the family! I figured since I would try to move her onto family meals quickly it would be ok to use pouches for convenience for th first couple of weeks

I found a couple of companies that do ice cube trays of single veg purée but they are so expensive!! £38 for a starter pack 😬

I’ll probably end up using the Ella pouches, it’s a shame they combine all the green vegs with apple or pear to make the purée sweeter

If you're cooking fresh food for the family, just put a spoonful of the veg aside for the baby.

DT’s were weaned on pouches and jars - we didn’t stick to one brand but just worked through whatever the supermarket had. Great way of introducing a huge range of flavours and meals. Makes life so easy as well - my main objective.
