In a perfect world, my fridge would be endlessly stocked with organic, farm-fresh fruits and veggies and in my spare time I would concoct homemade, nutritious meals made of said produce for my beloved children. Also, my 6 year old would never whine and my 1 year old would sleep in past 5:30am. (A girl can dream, right?)

One thing I have learned on my motherhood journey is that I can’t always do it all, and it is okay to accept help. In this case, help has come in the form of delicious, cold-pressed food pouches, filled with yummy, locally-grown ingredients. Once Upon A Farm heard our cries for help, mamas, and the best news is you can find these farm-to-table blends at your local Vons.
If you are a parent, you are more than likely familiar with food pouches for kids, but be assured, not all pouches are created equally. For starters, Once Upon A Farm pouches can be found in the refrigerated section of your local Vons, (#FromTheFridge #NotTheShelf), as opposed to in the dry foods section. Why is this so important? I’m glad you asked. For starters, your baby’s food should not be older than your baby–have you ever checked the shelf-life of some of those other pouches? Scary. Once Upon a Farm blends have a 3-month refrigerated shelf-life from the date of purchase and are as close to homemade as you can get, without making them yourself, (cue: happy dance!)
We also love that Once Upon A Farm divides these yummy blends in to stages and ages, expanding your babes little pallets with fun flavors every step of the way, (for even the pickiest of eaters). Stage 1 blends are made specifically for babies 5 months and older; Stage 2 is prepared for babies 7 months and older; Stage 3 pouches are meant for babies 9 months and older. (There are toddler snacks and smoothies available as well). What we’ve found is that All the blends are truly delicious, (and make for healthy grown-up snacks too!)
If you aren’t sold on these little packets of gold yet, you can take co-founder, Jennifer Garner’s word for it:
Follow along with me on Instagram, as I will be randomly auctioning off vouchers for FREE Once Upon A Farm pouches for you to redeem at your local Vons, as well as hosting a super FUN (and delicious) giveaway.
