Organic baby food brand, Plum, is adding to its top-selling Taste Adventures range of stage three (10+months) meals with two new recipes.
The latest additions to the globally-inspired collection are Sweet Potato & Chicken Peri Peri and Super Greens, Pasta & Cheese. They will be available in Asda and Ocado from February 2013 with other supermarkets nationwide to follow, priced at £1.79 RRP for a 190g pot.
Super Greens, Pasta & Cheese is an Italian-inspired dish and is the first vegetarian meal in the Taste Adventures range. Created in response to popular demand, the new addition combines quintessentially-Italian flavours such as basil with nutrient-rich green vegetables.
Sweet Potato & Chicken Peri Peri has its origins in African cuisine, with a strong Portuguese influence. Made with organic chicken from Wales, it combines delicious and authentic flavours which – like all Plum’s foods – are aimed at helping babies develop a broad palate and love of ‘proper food’ from a young age. It will be available exclusively in Asda stores nationwide from February 2013.
With research from the University of Bristol suggesting the variety of tastes a baby is exposed to during their early years has a direct impact upon their taste buds later in life, the curry-to-paella Taste Adventures range is the perfect solution for getting baby off to a great start, said Plum.
Since its launch in June 2012 with four original recipes it has proved a big hit with mums and babies, making it Plum’s most successful product launch ever, the company reports. Plum’s Facebook site was flooded with comments such as, “My little one LOVES the Taste Adventures aubergine and lamb moussaka. I make a lot of my own food for her but don’t eat aubergines but wanted her to try them. The smell is amazing and the taste is delicious”.
The existing Taste Adventures range comprises: Sweet Cape Curry with Beef, Chickpea & Chicken Tagine, Mediterranean Paella with Salmon, Aubergine & Lamb Moussaka.
All the Taste Adventures recipes boast a chunkier texture to encourage speech development as well as helping babies to chew. The pot format is perfect for independent babies starting to use a spoon to feed themselves.
