Allergens

This blend does not contain allergens.

Some of our products contain almonds and coconut (coconut is actually a fruit but the FDA treats it as a tree nut as some people may have sensitivities or allergies). We are currently reformulating our Smoothie blends to remove almonds so our products will be nut-free, however some products will still contain coconut so please read the ingredient statement carefully if you have any allergy concerns.

The facility we use processes tree nuts, egg, dairy, and soy. Care is taken to thoroughly clean all equipment in between each product to prevent the carryover of ingredients.

    Rebecca

    Another favorite among our little ones and big kids. They love anything butternut or sweet potato. The only downside is this flavor isn’t available in Target stores so can’t get this flavor locally.

    • Once Upon a Farm

      Thank you for your feedback! We’re working to expand distribution of our Stage 1 flavors so they’ll be more widely available in store. In the meantime, you can purchase from our website or Amazon!

    I found Once Upon a Farm in a little health food store and quickly signed up for a subscription. I made all my baby food for Baby#1. For Baby#4 I don’t have the time and feel like OUaF is a great option. Healthy, high quality options for my little one and easy for mom. Win, Win!

    • Once Upon a Farm

      Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. If your baby has been used to shelf-stable squeeze pouches, it can take some time to make the transition to a less sweet tasting and more textured blend. Here are some tips for introducing Once Upon a Farm:
      • Start by mixing our food with some shelf-stable food (Day 1 and 2: Mix е_ our pouch with е_ shelf stable. Day 3 & 4: Mix е_ our pouch with е_ shelf stable. Day 5 & 6: Mix е_ our pouch with е_ shelf stable Day 7: Completely switch out shelf stable pouches for Once Upon a Farm.)
      • Some babies don’t like (or aren’t used to) the food cold. Try warming a pouch for 3 minutes in a bowl of warm water (always test the temperature before serving). If you don’t want to warm the entire pouch, you can warm a smaller portion by pouring the desired amount into a bowl, then placing that bowl into a slightly larger bowl of warm water.
      • Try for multiple days and at different times of day to give them each flavor. Just because they won’t eat it the first, second, or even third time, it doesn’t mean they won’t like it the 4th! We tend to give up easily if they won’t eat it right away, thinking they don’t like it, but sometimes it just takes a while.
      • Make food fun! Pretend you’re an airplane or laugh and use high tones. This can completely transform the eating experience!
      • Try it as a yogurt or oatmeal topper or mix them in with smoothies.
      • If all else fails, these are amazingly healthy and yummy snacks for us adults too! We eat them all the time over here. It’s a great way to add fresh fruits, veggies and superfoods to your diet.

    My 7 month old LOVES THIS FOOD! I had planned to puree everything fresh and as organic as possible, but this company has provided exactly what I want without me having to do that! I feel confident i’m feeding him the absolute best food that I could possibly be giving him. THank you so much!

    This is a nice option to have, especially for younger babies. My little guy is 16 months so he wasn’t as into it as he would’ve been several months ago. He is at the picky stage at the moment. But I love that it is an option and will definitely order it if we have more babies. 🙂

    • Once Upon a Farm

      Thank you. Give our applesauces a try. Our older kids really seem to love them!

    Hard for my baby to eat this independently so he gets frustrated. But the taste and freshness is wonderful!

    • Once Upon a Farm

      Thank you for your feedback and your review. Baby Bear Butternut and So Sweet Potato are a bit thicker than our other blends due to the nature of the ingredient, but we’ll be sure to take this feedback to our quality team! If he gets frustrated again, you can also try feeding from a bowl with a spoon. Thank you again!

    More expensive but smaller packets by volume than other brands, my kid didn’t like it. Don’t care for all the packing materials.

    • Once Upon a Farm

      Thank you for your honest feedback. Our pouches do cost a bit more because of the ingredients and process we use. We cold-press our pouches which keeps the food fresh and more nutrient dense while maintaining the natural fruit or vegetables’ vibrant taste, color and texture. We also only use organic, non-gmo whole fresh fruits and vegetables (no concentrates, pre processed purees, or preservatives of any kinds).

      We hope you understand why our products are more costly. It is our goal to be as accessible as possible for all families so we will be working hard to provide the same high-quality organic product at a lower price point.

      Thank you again for your feedback, we truly appreciate it.
