It is in a convenient pouch, which will be handy to take along for meals away from home. Today's babies certainly have some wonderful products to enjoy!
284072284072B0051COPH6A2065HBMYDXJ1SJenn B "Happy Mom"0041337817600Great baby foodI really like that this product is organic. The packaging is great, pour out a little or a lot, if you want more, you can pour out more. Great flavor choices. I love the combinations of fruit and veggie. Babies like the sweetness of the fruit with the veggies, helps to get picky eaters to get their veggies. Great product.
284073284073B0051COPH6A2WN1QF8GSVHYVAltmed0051337817600Taste great- very convenient - great snack for all ages!Pear with spinach.

Pouches can go in the fridge & have straw-like "delivery system", like some apple sauce "on-the-go" packets.

Says it's "baby food", but great for adult snacks as well! Especially if you like applesauce & don't get your fruits & veggies with your regular diet, have a sensitive stomach or want on-the-go healthy snacks.

No mess, easy to open unscrew packets.

A good way to have a snack on the go without the mess!

I can see where a baby could transition from breast or bottle to these fairly easily.

Great to have in an earthquake kit or for camping trips.
284074284074B0051COPH6A8KM4YOB8FGGHJodi "languagejunkie"0051337817600Healthy and tasty......So far, this baby food has worked put well for us. My son enjoys it and I feel good knowing it is organic and comes in chemical free packaging. I mix it with some baby oatmeal to stretch it out between feedings. Good product!
284075284075B0051COPH6A1FHWJ7EFO3E3UJ. McKnite0051337472000My grandson would give it two thumbs up if he knew howMy grandson sucked this down so fast I thought he was going to get a headache. He loves it and my daughter has started buying them regularly now. She said they travel well and she doesn't have to worry about breaking jars to get veggies into her baby when they travel. Actually he has these mostly at home.
284076284076B0051COPH6AQYYUN3T7B0WMKaren in Mommyland0041337299200Baby really likes this unconventional comboWhen I got this Juicy Pear and Garden Greens baby food for my daughter I wasn't sure if she would go for a pear/spinach/broccoli. The puree is mostly pears with flecks of spinach and broccoli in it. I'm not a fan of the smell of this food, but my daughter can't get enough of it. She really likes it and gets quite upset if I don't feed it to her quickly enough. I was ver concerned that it wasn't going to be palatable, but her eagerness to eat this makes me think it must be pretty tasty.

The pouch is convenient if you are only going to serve a portion of this to your baby. Simply squeeze out what you're going to use and then cap it and pop it in the fridge.
284077284077B0051COPH6A4VMQ6ZTSXSSLkiwanissandy "Go Bucks!"0051337299200Baby loved it and less mess.These packages were resealable and easy to use. I heated the food as well as served it cold and my grandson loved it either way. It just seems natural to warm peas a little but he didn't mind if I didn't. The nutrients were excellent in this baby food and I would easily recommend to any new mother. Other than making it yourself you can't go wrong with this product. I also purchased the Baby Gourmet Organic Simple Purees Stage 1 (6 Months+) Orchard, Apple, Carrot and Prune Baby Food, 4.5-Ounce Pouches (Pack of 12) and he LOVED it!
284078284078B0051COPH6A3HUC8541SJ6UTB. Junkin-Mills "brookemom"0041337126400Wish I'd thought of it!My kids are teenagers, but my sister and her baby are visiting this week so I picked up this case of Baby Gourmet Organic Simple Purees Stage 1(6 Months+) Juicy Pear and Garden Greens Baby Food, 4.5-Ounce Pouches (Pack of 12)for my nephew.

First of all, I love the pouches! So much more convenient than jars (easier to pack, easy to dispense; can even be dispensed right into the mouth!). I also like that these are organic and gluten free, with no added sugar or salt.

Taste? Well my 7 month old nephew gobbled them up. I tried a little taste and was not a fan, but I don't think I'm the target demographic.

One star off because the cap comes all the way off and could become a choking hazard. They should make it so the cap retracts or flips up, or in some way doesn't come off.

BOTTOM LINE: Healthy, convenient, and popular with the babies = win. I will buy these when he visits again.
284079284079B0051COPH6A1NOBRCN20NGD5Bradley Bevers "the lucid blog"0041337126400Good Baby Food, Poor DesignMy baby son loves the food, but the design is not great. He is really too young to self feed yet, but my other son used to love to eat out of these packages himself. With the new design, it makes it much harder to self feed.

Bottom line: Food's great, your baby will love it - just don't expect your baby to self-feed with this product.
284080284080B0051COPH6A2D7B5I7ZQ51XLTime Enough At Last0041337126400Very good taste!For our child, we typically produce our own baby food. I'm not a big fan of all the "extras" baby food companies stick in their foods, so I use a baby food processor to make whatever pure foods I want to give my baby.

However, I saw the opportunity to give these organic purees a shot and decided to give it a shot because the flavours just sounded amazing: For the Juicy Pear and Garden Greens, it was quite good and the baby (and, admittedly, I) enjoyed it quite a bit. Since it doesn't have all the flavour add-ins that other baby foods have (especially the sugars), it's not going to have the junk food flavouring. Therefore, it will ACTUALLY taste like the foods the label says. This one is a bit on the sour side, but that's because I'm not a huge fan of pear. My baby liked it quite a bit and didn't fight in the slightest.

I also like the pouch design (instead of the jars with those hard to reach corners). You can just pour a bit into your baby's favourite bowl and let him or her enjoy!

Overall, it's a good product that most babies should enjoy. There are other flavours that you can also give a shot!
284081284081B0051COPH6A37D2TGTIXRV2Nplyopowerd "Arrow Dynamic Mom"0051337040000Yummy snack and oatmeal topping! Kids like it tooThese packets are easy to store and squeeze, and the caps make them easy to reseal. The pear-spinach puree makes a great, low-calorie, no-added-sugar topping for plain oatmeal. And my kids like it as a snack! It's convenient and better for them than fruit roll-ups.
284082284082B0051COPH6A24RCBRDXRXR0YJames A. Nichols0041337040000Awesome but pricey.These are really great to have on hand to just grab and take with you if you are on the go. My 1 year old loves these. He has also just learned how to drink from a straw and just hold this in his mouth and sucks most of it out(you have to help with the last little bit). The taste isnt too bad(Had to try it out for myself). You get a mix of fruit and vegetable in one serving which is really great. My only problem is that they seem to be a little pricey for the size but they are convenient.
284083284083B0051COPH6A2H667ZUNLNTF1Wendi Barker "Wendi's Book Corner & What Wend...0041337040000Yummy Feel Good Food For Your Baby or ToddlerI absolutely love baby food pouches. I try to keep one or two in my purse or car at all times for our toddler, who tends to get cranky VERY fast when he decides he's hungry. The Baby Gourmet Juicy Pear and Garden Greens Pouch is great for all purposes, and as a parent, I can feel good giving it to my toddler (who scarfs these down and asks for more... which is all the proof I need that they are good).

Now, I wasn't sure about my son's taste in food, so I decided to give a pouch a try myself while we were waiting for some friends. It was actually quite good. It has the perfect amount of pear to make the spinach and broccoli a little sweeter, and the only other ingredients are asorbic acid and organic lemon juice concentrate, so I know these pouches are nutritious.

Pluses:
100% Organic
Unsweetened (well, that is what the package says, but it IS naturally sweetened by the pear)
Unsalted
Gluten Free
Nut Free
BPA Free Packaging
No dairy, egg or lactose
Tastes good

This comes in two 6-pack boxes, and is suggested for children ages 6 months+. My 2 year old loves these as a snack or supplement to his meal (especially if we eat out), and I will on occasion eat one for a snack myself.
284084284084B0051COPH6AQZ4PHIEEV5N5Penny Pinching Polly "Check out my website fo...00513370400002 year old LOVES them!I watch a 2 year old, and this is her favorite snack! I admit, I was skeptic. It honestly doesn't SOUND appealing, but they taste surprisingly good! I have had it as a snack a time or two, as has my 6 year old. I cannot wait to try other varieties!
284085284085B0051COPH6A3I5YPJZMTG1QOD. P. Taylor0051336953600My niece loved them! Healthy convenience food.Got these for when my niece visits and really happy with it. No additives, no BPA, no waste; great taste, good ingredients, portable. I'd definitely buy this using subscribe & save since it brings the price down 15%. Honestly, I think this makes a great addition to baby's food pantry for travel, days when you're too busy to prep a lot of food, or when the baby is sleeping over grandma's (or auntie's) house. A++++
284086284086B0051COPH6A353U0L2HAMSHVCricket "Living life and loving it!"0041336953600Next best thing to homemadeWith my first child I made all of my baby food from scratch. I was a stay at home Mom and had the luxury to do this, but I know that it's not always possible for parents. I think that if you can't make it yourself, then a product like this is the next best thing. I liked several things about Baby Gourmet Organic Simple Purees; the simplicity and minimal processing of the ingredients, the packaging and the flavor combinations. Of course the true test is what baby thinks and not wanting to feed a child some thing I wouldn't be willing to eat myself I sampled it first. The texture was right for the age, not to thick or runny. The flavor was pretty good too, I liked the addition of pear to add a little sweetness. As for the kids, three visitors to my home have now tried this and 2 out of 3 liked it. The baby was 7 months and gobbled it down, there was a 12 month old that after a few tastes turned his nose up at it and surprisingly the 3 year old took the pouch and sucked it down. Her Mom said she gives her HAPPYTOT Organic Superfoods for Tots, so she was very familiar with the packaging. The only thing left to consider is the price. While it is more expensive than some of the longstanding jarred brands out there, I think that it is worth the extra cost for your child.
284087284087B0051COPH6A3Z9QN0RCOHEYBibliophile By the Sea0051336953600Perfect first foods that babies likeThese purees are great first foods for babies. They are easy to swallow and easy to digest, and it's gluten free, contains no dairy, no eggs, no nuts, no fillers, sweeteners or salt. It was even enjoyed by one fussy baby who is particular about what it likes to eat.

The packaging is perfect for travel; it's easy to open and dispense. The food is both tasty and nutritious. No refrigeration required unless opened. We think it's the perfect food to take along for babies when traveling or visiting. TRY IT.
284088284088B0051COPH6A267FU71Z01CIHKipp Poe Speicher "Kipp Poe Speicher"0041336953600Nice and convenientHaving my grandson over every weekend I thought I would give this product a try. Very glad I did he really likes it and it so easy to serve and dispose of the packaging. He really seems satisfied and full after eating.
284089284089B0051COPH6A2W9I628I6SE1UKort "Art, Music, Book & Movie Enthusiast"0051336953600Peary GoodBaby Gourmet's Juicy Pear & Garden Greens comes in a BPA free "spout pouch" package that is becoming more and more common on grocery store shelves. I like the convenient, easy-to-store nature of these pouches and their other benefits. The pouches themselves are not recyclable, but they supposedly have a far smaller environmental impact than glass jar alternatives. The cap and nozzle are recyclable plastic, so I recommend just ripping them off the empty pouch and dropping them into your recycling bin.

Getting back the most important thing -- the food. I suggest you visit Baby Gourmet's website to see the philosophy behind their product. It is organic, has no fillers, and is unsweetened. Taste is as important and nutritional value. A pouch contains two servings and in the case of this one, that's 40 calories a serving along with the other healthy nutrients.

My wife and I don't have a 6 months+ infant, but a neighbor's baby is a little less than a year old and she seemed to like it well enough. In fact, it was hard to pry the empty pouch from her pudgy little fingers. My two kids (7 & 11) tasted and and wrinkled up their noses. No pouches in their school lunches I guess. To be fair, they are far from the target market.

My wife and I tasted it and found it to actually be pretty tasty. To us, chilled pouches taste better than room temperature or warmed ones. I would describe it as having an apple sauce like consistency with the predominant fresh flavor of pear purée and a dash of greens (broccoli and spinach) making a subtle appearance. I wouldn't serve this to company at a dinner party (unless they were all toddlers), but I don't mind throwing a pouch in my lunch bag and having it as a snack for work. I don't even mind the odd looks I get from my coworkers, hah!

If you are looking for a healthy food for your little one(s), you could do a lot worse than Juicy Pear & Garden Greens. In a pinch, it'll even do as a snack for open minded adults. My thanks to Baby Gourmet for producing this healthy and environmentally friendly product.

284090284090B0051COPH6A1FDSZISWIXH1ATerry "TCinSATX"0051336953600Very convenient, and tasty, tooThese purees are great, and the pouch thing is exceptionally convenient! This flavor, juicy pear and garden greens, tastes like a lovely pear puree to me - no hint of the greens. For a child who dislikes veggies, I believe this would be a nice way to sneak some in.

The pouch is a thick foil and it features a plastic tube with a re-closeable, plastic top. My almost 2 year old granddaughter had no problem using the pouch and she LOVED the flavor. In fact, she finished it and asked for another one. When I pulled it out of the carton, her eyes got wide, her smile got wider, and she said "All for ME"?

We were at the park that day and the pouch was such a great way to give her a yummy snack without needing utensils or having any clean-up. Also, the pouch is perfect for a toddler on the go, who is loathe to slow down for a minute to eat something. My daughter-in-law was very enthusiastic about keeping some on hand for car trips and other times when a snack is in order.

I intend to purchase other varieties as well, but this flavor will be one I regularly keep on hand for my granddaughter's visits.
284091284091B0051COPH6A3N4CUW4UYC9I3MH0041336953600Healthy and convenientI am very impressed that there isn't any type of sweetener or salt in this Baby Gourmet Organic baby food. It is surprisingly difficult to find baby food without salt and some type of sugar. The ingredients in this formula are: Organic pear, organic broccoli, organic spinach, ascorbic acid, organic lemon juice concentrate.

The packaging lists it as 2 servings, but I think most babies can/will eat the entire package. This is not always the case, though, so the twist on/off lid makes it very convenient for storing in the refrigerator. The one thing I don't like is that it's difficult to see/feel if you've really gotten all of the food out of the pouch. The food is quite expensive, and I don't like the thought of not being able to get every little drop out of the packaging.

All in all, this is a great food -- tastes great, has wonderful ingredients, doesn't have unnecessary additives, and is very convenient.
284092284092B0051COPH6A29M09QBG9TZLPShana "That's my opinion- I could be wrong!"0051336953600Baby loved them!My husband and I sometimes take care of my baby niece and so I ordered this to try. All I can say is that she loved them. She ate all her food and she is sometimes a very picky eater.

The only gripe I have is that sometimes the containers I find to be a pain, it's easier just to open up a jar and take what you use out. Though the disposal of these containers is much easier than the jars.

Overall, I'd highly recommend.
284093284093B0051COPH6A2HC9549CZAKNNB. McCarthy "Engineer, CERT, Amateur Radio Op...0051336953600GreatThese are great...very healthy and kids love them. It is so much more convenient to feed them like this and not have to carry around little jars or tubs and spoons. They are natural and have only good things in them. Good for a baby or even a slightly older kid to get their vegetables.
284094284094B0051COPH6A19EKT8H85AKO5EnergyWork0051336867200No artificial ingrediants and nice looking containerFirst off I love the container. Easy to squeeze out the contents and no spoons needed. Item can be served warm or cold. It is unsalted and unsweetened. There is a mix of Pear, Broccoli, and Spinach. And of course it is certified Organic. A bit pricey but high quality and convenient for your baby.
284095284095B0051COPH6AQSW6WDVCJGB8Teetee0051336867200Baby loves it and his tummy takes it well!My infant loves it! Juicy Pear and Garden Greens is at first an off putting combo but it actually tastes nice. (Yeah, I tasted it. I taste everything I give to my infant to be sure it isn't poisoned. Haha, not really. But it's good to have an idea of what, exactly you are giving to your child, I think)

The packaging is very convenient. A pouch with a screw top for easy access and reseal to keep the contents fresh.
Great taste, great packaging- you've got a winner!

*** UPDATE ***
Baby (almost 6 months old) has been eating this Juicy Pear and Garden Greens for over a week now. No problem digesting it and still able to poo regularly (color will be kind of green instead of yellow though but no worries!) If you're going to start your baby on solid, I highly recommend this product as a start (perhaps on top of iron fortified rice cereal). I was told to start with veggies, then fruits but why not do both at the same time with this Juicy pear and greens purees! :) He eats 2 - 2.5 oz of Baby Gourmet in the morning then rice with milk in the evening.

I'm so very happy with this product and highly recommend it. GROW baby GROW!
284096284096B0051COPH6A2CNGARED6OWWUBluerose's Heart "Bluerose's Heart"0041336867200My 1 Year Old Likes It!To me, these taste like turnip greens and pears mixed together. I know the name of this flavor involves garden greens, but I thought the "greens" would be pretty tasteless, for some odd reason. You can very much taste them! I didn't care for this flavor at all. My 3 year old looked at me like I was the worst mother ever for daring to let him taste it. My 1 year old LOVES them, though! He's the closest to the target age, so I guess he would be the best judge in this case. Little ones don't exactly have the same taste "likes" as the older generation. (Have you ever tasted formula?!)

I will say that the turnip green flavor wasn't as strong to me after these have been refrigerated, even if my husband disagrees.

I know that there's the whole argument against these pouches because they aren't recyclable. I DO wish that they could be recycled, but otherwise, I LOVE these pouches! They are just so handy, especially with traveling.

Overall, my youngest gives these a big thumbs up. If you're buying them for an older child, I'd probably try one before buying a whole case!
284097284097B0051COPH6A1ZENB34HH2EIMSAlaska "S"0051336780800Yes, I actually tasted it.I figured that in order to truly review this product, I was going to have to taste it. I wasn't excited about that. However, I was pleasantly surprised; it actually tasted like food! It has this nice, fresh, slightly sweet flavor and a texture that isn't slimy or gummy at all!

My babysitting charges like it too; all around, Baby Gourmet is a big hit!
284098284098B0051COPH6A1B6O7SAIYG2N0Jacx "J.C."0051336694400Easy to use baby foodThey really made this baby food easy to use, can be cold, room temp or warmed in a bowl of hot tap water, travels well and no glass to break or throw away, although that big green screw cap needs some work, its a lot of plastic. Little kids can squeeze straight into their mouths with a little practice, but very messy for one with no control. Tastes like well, pears.
284099284099B0051COPH6AK1WNXTHNCG5VMynana "Nancy"0051336608000Must taste good :)I fed this to my grandson and he ate the whole pouch. I couldn't believe it. When I read it was garden greens and pear juice I thought it sounded nasty but my grandson loved it. Of course I have never found anything he doesn't like but he seemed to really eat this up much faster. and its nutritious :)
284100284100B0051COPH6A3UORBSIKQ56ZBkdea4730041336608000Well-liked at our houseI tried a little bit before handing it over to the baby (20 months old), and I was surprised at how tart it was. The first ingredient is pear, so I expected it to be a little bit sweeter. But, the little guy didn't even seem to notice.

Not sure if it is the novelty of eating from a pouch, or if he didn't notice the tartness, but it was gone in under 2 minutes.

I like the pouches as they are easy for babies to self-feed (less messy!) and good for times when we are out.

The current price (at nearly $2/pouch on S&S) is a bit high for my budget. I've compared to the varieties at the store, and they tend to be cheaper, even for the organic ones.

However, I felt good knowing that there were no "funny" ingredients in these pouches. I would certainly recommend them.
