Vanilla Banana Berry Risotto, Tropical Banana Berry , Juicy Pear and Garden Greens. Sounds pretty good, right? There are several differentiators between Baby Gourmet and other pouched baby food on the market. Baby Gourmet offers not only superior taste, but also the thoughtful combos introducing baby to healthy medley of garden greens by adding a sweet fruit to mask some of the bitterness.
An organic, all natural baby food brand with delicious flavors divided into three stages: simple purees, yummy combos and tasty textures, Baby Gourmet contains no added sugars, salts, fillers, or thickeners.
Here are a few examples of ways Baby Gourmet artfully developed flavor profiles designed to increase vegetable appeal:
- -Juicy Pear and Garden Greens combines broccoli and spinach with creamy pear to sweeten the pot
- Orchard Apple, Carrot and Prune is like giving baby a glass of carrot-OJ with the “side-benefits” of prune
- Inspired by pumpkin waffles, the Harvest Pear, Pumpkin and Banana combo introduces the sweet, earthy taste of pumpkin
Baby Gourmet is travel-friendly and great for staving off grumpiness brought on by your child’s hunger. Their tasty textures are enjoyed by children of all ages- not just babies! Baby Gourmet uses a convenient, re-sealable spout to minimize spillages on faces, hands and clothes.
Another reason why we at Basil MAGAZINE love Baby Gourmet, they are a company that gives back! Baby Gourmet donated more than $350,000 worth of baby food to the Detroit food bank and Oak Park food rescue. Way to go Baby Gourmet!

Sweet Potato Ravioli with Sage Butter Sauce
Compliments of Jennifer Broe, Founder of Baby Gourmet
Yields: 30 ravioli
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Total time: 45minutes
I am on the “meatless Monday” bandwagon, so when it comes to finding delicious vegetarian meals I am always on the lookout. I love the simple elegance of a brown butter sauce and so do my babies! Kids love noodles and butter, well so do I when the pasta is good and the butter has been browned! I use wonton wrappers in place of homemade pasta, making this dish not only delicious but super fast!
-1 lbs sweet potatoes/yams
-1 Tbsp brown sugar
-1 Tbsp (1/4 stick) butter, room temperature
-1 12-ounce package wonton wrappers
-1 large egg, beaten
-Fried shallots and butter sauce
