Hipp Organic

I've mentioned it before, but Blondie freaking *LOVES* rice cereal. To be specific he loves Hipp Organic Rice Cereal. The kid would lick the bowl clean if I let him and dive bombs the spoon when we give it to him.


So when I got the chance to review more Hipp Organic products I jumped at the chance. I'm really picky about what Blondie Boy eats and I prefer that everything is organic and contains minimal ingredients. Hipp products totally fit the bill.

Since Blondie Boy loves rice cereal so much, we figured we'd give the Hipp Organic Apple Rice Cakes which only have 4 ingredients (Organic rice, organic wholegrain rice, organic apple juice, thiamin-vitamin B1) a try; please ignore my annoying voice.

He liked eating them when I broke them up in little pieces, but he equally enjoyed holding a whole rice cake and mashing it with his gums. The latter method was a bit messy and not a lot was ingested, but I'm guessing it felt nice on his gums.

Being the good Mom that I am, I tasted a rice cake myself and umm YUM! I love Cinnamon-Apple Rice Cakes (which you get in the US, but not the UK) and these were just as tasty, but with natural and healthy organic ingredients. The rice cakes also come in Tomato and Red Pepper and Carrot and Pumpkin flavors.

We've got lots of other Hipp Organic goodies to try out with Blondie Boy is older and I can't wait!


The lovely people at Hipp Organic are going to give one of you the chance to try some of their yummy rice cakes yourself!

We love the Hipps Organic products in our house. James is at the age where we have the tray meals on a handy standby because we know that if supper is running late or we are eating a spicy curry that he will quite happily eat that. We also were giving him the Hipps Organic follow on milk and Good Night milk as it was the only formula that did not irritate his eczema, so if you speak to the people at Hipps, please thank them for me.

We haven't started solids yet, but when we do I'm excited to see Iwan working with finger food. Although we'll be doing Baby Led Weaning, we'll still want to have some store-bought baby stuff on hand for when we need an easy meal for Iwan, or for when he has a babysitter. I'm not sure what he'll like, or what we'll like, but I like the sound of the Hipp Organic products!

We loved Hipp with W and plan on using it again (if we supplement, and for early weaning) with DD! (Ack - I'm going to have to go thru this all again!)

Ooh, I like the look of these! With smallest-of-all in full on weaning mode at 9 months old, finger foods are firm favourite here.

I'm glad I read your post as T loves organic apple rice cakes (different brand) and calls them cookies. I didn't know Hipp Organic had these now, too. I looked for them in Boots and picked up some of the carrot & pumpkin ones. - jeanne

So is that my fave or Li'l Mister's fave? He loves chips. Come to think of it, so do I...

I am not sure if you want to know about my favourite finger food but if you do it is slices of cheese! My 11 month old son already loves Hipp organic products and would it if I won this giveaway! He currently enjoys eating fresh fruit and vegetables as finger food as well as biscuits!
