Hipp baby food review
Hipp Organic Baby Food Review
Ethan is 9 months old now and we feed him a combination of homemade meals (where they’re suitable to be blended and fed) as well as jars/sachets. Over the past month or so, he’s become a little fussier with his jarred baby food, probably because he’s becoming more accustomed to blended homemade meals.
But sometimes you just need something that is quick, convenient and healthy too, so I’m always trying new ones with him and making a note of his favourites. Hipp Organic asked us to review their baby food jars, so we’ve been trying those out over the past few days.
We were sent 8 jars, which included 2 breakfast ones. It’s the breakfast ones that I was particularly interested in as it’s the mornings when we tend to be in a rush and need to get something balanced, filling but quick inside the little man.
So the Creamed Porridge Breakfast and the Banana Yoghurt Breakfast were our starting point for Ethan’s taste test!
An empty jar speaks volumes!
We use the baby porridge oats you make up with formula. But when in a rush, it’s less than ideal so we usually also have a stock of pre made breakfast baby sachets.
I tried Ethan with the Banana Yoghurt breakfast from Hipp Organic as his first Hipp taste test!
Well, he polished off the lot and was looking for more afterwards too!
We had the same result with the creamed porridge the next day too!
Dinners and Lunches
The other ones we’ve tried over the course of the week so far have been lunches and dinners. He’s tried:
- Spaghetti bolognese
- Penne with tomato and courgette
- Sweet squash and chicken
- Mediterranean vegetables with aubergines
- Buttered vegetables
He’s polished them all off with the exception of the buttered vegetables which he was a little less keen on.
But, on the whole, he has been looking remarkably pleased with his food this week!
We’re sold on Hipp Organic
So jars have a few definite benefits over sachets. For a start, it’s easy feeding without a bowl. Second, they end up in your garage filled with screws or bolts or similar. Very handy 😉
I find the sachets easier to heat up. It’s super quick to just stand them in hot water. But our son has enjoyed his pre-made meals more this week than he has in a few weeks. So we’ll definitely be buying some in.
The breakfasts were the highlight of the week for us. The Hipp Organic breakfasts both appeared to go down better than other breakfasts we’ve given him and it’s so quick and convenient too!
Add to that the fact that Hipp Organic is the only organic range of baby food jars in the UK and the ingredients are all carefully chosen for a healthy meal, and I have perfect peace of mind feeding these to my son.
All in all, a winner in our household!

Our 5 month old is currently on the…
Our 5 month old is currently on the hipp organic first milk, now I will say he seems to take this milk much better than other brands, the only issue we have is the bloody box the formular comes in, it's absolutely terrible, it's so much hassle, takes longer to make your bottles and your constantly spilling it within the box or over the work top, why ruin a brilliant milk with such a poorly designed box? Also the leveler on the box will break, the milk comes in 2 bags, why not just put 1 large bag that has a press seal to reseal the bag instead of a piece tape, that I would assume like us most people wouldn't even bother using anyway, my partner said you can purchase a plastic container on there website, now why should you have to pay extra for this, also this would make additional work because surely this would need to be sanitised if it was to come into contact with formular. Change your box and stop using the claim your being environmentally friendly.

DON'T ORDER FROM THE HIPP SHOP
Ordering from the HIPP Shop is a joke. I received 8 boxes of cereal for my 7 month old, with a shelf life of 3 months. Not to mention the thick layer of dust on the product. What 7 month old is going to eat that much porridge within that time frame?
The manager of the shop refused to arrange a free collection and to issue me with a product with a decent shelf life. This is unacceptable in this day and age and I would absolutely recommend NOT buying from them.
The concern is clearly for their pockets above the wellbeing of your children.

We made a genuine mistake and brought the anti reflux milk as opposed to the normal Hipp 1 milk, we wrote to Hipp and Joanna from the customer services team contacted us back the same day and gave us vouchers towards further products. We are extremely grateful and can’t speak highly enough of this brand and the milk is brilliant too, only one our son will take.

The only anti reflux formula I would buy.
My little one was suffering from reflux so was advised to try anti reflux formula. Hipp was amazing and my little one put on weight and is now thriving on first infant Hipp organic formula. I love the concept of the cows being fed organically with no nasty's. Animal welfare means a lot to me.

The ugly truth about HiPP baby food
We have traveled with our 10 months old son to Sri Lanka, Croatia and Slovakia so far and every time we were mistakenly delighted to find HiPP baby food in the supermarkets!
Unfortunately the sad truth is that for some reason HiPP company doesn't believe that the babies who live in Eastern Europe deserve healthy, nutritious food! Or maybe they don't believe that the Eastern European mothers deserve to take a break from cooking without worrying about harming their precious babies! I have been shocked to find the HiPP baby food in Croatia mainly consisting of potato and starch in general and the ones in Slovakia to be also full of salt!!! This is unfair, cruel and against human rights!
HiPP has been the only food brand that I have bought for our son so far but I refuse to do so going forward! I refuse to create profit and advertise for a company that can be so cruel, that can bring themselves to feed garbage to innocent babies.
I truly hope for a day that there is more equality in this world.

We tried almost all formulas on the market. This one is definitely the best one!

Baby vegetable puree: edible or inedible?
/ All materials
GOST not decree
The tasting of vegetable puree was conducted by specialists who have devoted many years to the development of baby food. Their opinion can be trusted. But we want to warn you: it is impossible to guarantee that the child will like the same puree as the experts (rather, you should rely on your own taste). Much more important is compliance with safety requirements. And most of the samples we tested meet the standards. Most, but not all.
Let's deal with quality
Andrey Mosov, head of the expert department of NP Roskontrol, doctor:
“Such characteristics as sweetness, bitterness or “unexpressed taste” are subjective. Parents most often pay attention to the water content of the product. The presence of water in the composition of vegetable puree is not bad for the first feeding. You just need to understand that water is a cheaper raw material than a pumpkin.”
Irina Konokhova, leading expert of NP Roskontrol, doctor:
“Indeed, in most of the tested vegetable purees, the mass fraction of chlorides (i.e. salt) is 0.2%, and in the Babushkino Lukoshko, Heinz and Semper purees it is 0.3%. Perhaps this is due to the higher natural content of sodium chloride in the feedstock, although it cannot be ruled out that salt was added. However, this intake of salt with complementary foods is acceptable, given the physiological need for sodium in children. The permissible mass fraction of chlorides in children's vegetable puree is 0.6%, and this figure is not exceeded in the tested samples.
How about sterility?
Let's start with the main thing: all samples meet the requirements of industrial sterility. Pesticides were not found in any of the samples, and all samples meet the standards in terms of nitrate content.
In addition, the puree was checked for 5-hydroxymethyl furfural content . It was not found in any of the samples.
No preservatives or sweeteners of any kind are allowed in baby food. We checked the puree for the presence of sorbate, benzoate, sulfur dioxide (these are preservatives) and determined the mass concentration of sweeteners. Parents can be calm: no preservatives or sweeteners were found in the samples.
One in the jar, another on the label
Andrey Mosov, head of the expert department of NP Roskontrol, doctor:
in pumpkin puree should be 3. 6% (in boiled pumpkin - 4.6%).
Summing up and drawing conclusions
Roskontrol experts noted that the manufacturer of puree Semper misleads the consumer about the presence of sugar in the composition. A mark "Bebivita" does not correspond to the actual product name - it is indicated in small print on the back of the label ("Complementary food product - mashed pumpkin and potatoes").
Puree “Spelyonok” has the inscription “fortified with vitamin C” illegally placed: the actual mass fraction of ascorbic acid in this sample is four times less than indicated in the label. Plus, on all samples, except for Bebivita puree, information about the nutritional value in terms of carbohydrate content is distorted.
