Part of Lidl's new and improved Lupilu range which includes everything from award-winning nappies to organic food pouches, these sweet potato, pumpkin, apple and blueberry pouches are suitable from four-months-old. These handy resealable pouches are 100% organic, made with only fruit and vegetables and no added sugar and are perfect for weaning babies at mealtimes or as a snack for toddlers.
Would you recommend this to other mums?
Stephanie: Yes definitely. Not only are they easy and versatile but the price is fantastic when compared to other brands. They are a quality product with a very budget price which is fantastic when you have lots of little mouths to feed. I love the screw lid and the fact that you can use maybe a quarter of a pouch then refrigerate for 24hrs and use the next day, so there is very little waste.
Sarah: I would recommend this due to the price. It also has organic fruit and vegetables which is good to know when your baby is trying his first foods. The pouch idea makes it easy to take them anywhere. The design is simple and has all the right information on what is in the product.
Philipa: I like how easy the pouches are to transport. They are brightly coloured and the colour matches the flavour so that it is easy to grab the one that you want out of the cupboard. They are easy to squeeze onto a spoon which makes feeding on-the-go easily accomplished. They are resealable so that they can be put away in the fridge once opened.
How did this product make your life easier?
Jennifer: It is great to have a small pouch of ready-made food to pop in the change bag. The pouch means I don't have to heat up, cool down or try and keep it warm whilst out. They are easy and quick as there is no preparation and the pouch is roughly the right amount.
Charlie: The Lupilu Pouches are a lifesaver in situations where having a home-cooked dinner isn't possible. If we are out and about or having a day where time has run away with us then these pouches are quick and easy. It's good to know they are full of goodness for your baby. This has really made my life easier as a mum.
Philipa: The pouches are really easy to take out as they are light and you can feed the baby straight out of them by squeezing it onto a spoon! They keep in the fridge for 24 hours after being opened so for babies who aren’t able to eat the whole thing in one sitting there is no need to waste what is left. The consistency is very smooth so it is a good way to introduce purée to a young baby.
Would you choose this product to win?
Margaret: I would choose this product above others on the market. You can't really go wrong with the Lupilu pouches. The ingredients are pretty much the same as other well-known baby food ranges but these are much cheaper. Babies are an expensive business so saving money is always great as a new mum on maternity leave.
Stephanie: I would choose this product above all others on the market because I like that the ingredients are organic and gluten-free. The packaging is attractive and a good range of fruit and vegetables are used. I think this product should win because it is the 'whole package' - price, quality, and easy to use.
Charlie: I think this product should win as it is really reasonably priced and my daughter really enjoyed it. I think Lupilu is a good brand of baby and toddler items and should gain recognition for their competitive prices. The variety of flavours are good and as with other leading brands, full of goodness.
What changes would you make to this product?
Stephanie: I would prefer a more extensive range. Maybe a selection of finger foods, as my baby loves to use her fingers and is developing her under grip. So she would love to be able to grab things off her tray herself. Or a more extensive dessert range for when my baby is a bit older.
Philipa: A greater range of flavours would be great as currently there are only a few different options on offer. However, I wouldn’t change anything else. The consistency of this product for the age range intended is perfect. The amount of food in each pouch is a good amount but if it was available in different sizes it might attract more parents as children eat different amounts.
Sarah: I don’t think I would change anything about this product. I feel it had a good design, great value for money and lovely flavours. Perhaps there could be more choice in flavours giving consumers more to choose from. I like this product overall and feel it is a great addition for Lidl.
