Mums Say Trial

Cow & Gate Friends

Join this group
Getting your little one to love veggies can be tricky. Babies are naturally more receptive to sweet tastes initially, so parents may find it easier to focus on fruits at the start of weaning – but this means they're missing out on a wide variety of foods that form a balanced diet.
From first spoonfuls to friends forever, the new Friends range of steam‐cooked pouches helps make loving veggies simple. You won’t find any fruit to hide the taste of veg, just natural savoury flavours that will help you introduce your little one to vegetables and start a friendship that will last a lifetime.

RE: Cow & Gate Friends

We had decided that we were going to do a mixture of baby led weaning and spoon feeding with our six month old daughter. Initially we had decided we would spoon feed breakfast ( porridge) , however as I got the opportunity to trial cow and gate friends we decided dinner would be spoonfed. I had not heard of cow and gates new range prior to receiving the samples. The pouches were bright and colourful and very eye catching. Like most parents I was anxious to introduce a good range of vegetables early on. The pouches made this very easy.

On the first day I tried the cauliflower potato and cheese. She didn't really like it. I tried again in five days and added ground black pepper and she loved it.
I tried the chicken , broccoli and potato on the second day. This was a big hit. She kept taking the spoon from my hand and trying to feed herself.
Carrot, potato and beef was hoovered down whilst peas, sweet corn and potato was such a big hit she moaned if you didn't bring the spoon to her quickly enough.
If I were to introduce a new flavour it would be chicken with pesto and pasta. I think kids like bold flavours and this should be encouraged.

I will definitely be keeping some pouches in the fridge for use.

Would love to try this with my 7 month old baby who is enjoying her first foods. I'm sure this would be so handy for when you're on the go. It might be a good way to get my 3 year old to eat
Veggies too!

Would love to try these with my little boy. I find the pouches to be very handy when out and about and I love to try out new flavours with him.
