Win! £50 Boots voucher with For Aisha

When most parents think of a baby food pouch company, one brightly-coloured brand springs to mind. But since we all like the convenience of an occasional ready meal for a baby, (although you can easily make your own - read more about the Fill'n'Squeeze here), and they're really useful whilst on-the-go, we at Run Out of Womb were interested to test out a rival, For Aisha.

It's taking on the food giants in the baby food sector, but whilst most of the current baby food specialists focus on only using organic produce, For Aisha is chasing a different market: its meat is Halal, and the flavours are more exotic than most pouches: there are one or two "plainer" meals, like lamb Shepherd's Pie, but most of the meals are packed with a punch of spice: Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Tomato and Chickpea Curry, Chicken Dhal.

A point to note - whilst the label says For Aisha "sources ethically", the fruit, veg and meat isn't organic, which might put some parents off -  but the makers say there is no producer that they can purchase organic meat from on the list of Halal suppliers, and point out that baby food is made under strict regulations.

The pouches are all for seven-months-plus (stage two weaning) - and I love the idea of incorporating big flavours - it's important to give tiny ones lots of different tastes. I did worry, however, that they might be too spicy to tummies that were unused to tanginess, and indeed my 10-month-year-old wasn't particularly keen after a few spoonfuls. Some of his friends shared the pouches, though, and one very fussy one gobbled down the puree, so it's definitely a personal taste thing for each baby!

Want to try out For Aisha yourself? Run Out of Womb can win the chance to try out a range of For Aisha pouches - and a voucher to spend £50 at Boots, which is one of the stockists. Enter via Rafflecopter, below. And good luck!
