Giveaway! & Ella's Dad's Berry Happy Smoothie

I will only blog about products I believe in & use for myself & family. I try to find & buy the freshest pre-packaged goods imaginable if need be arises. I really try to also only buy organic when I am able. So...

Recently, when our NJ home was threatened by Hurricane Irene, I stocked up on fruit purees for Gabriel because, in case we were not able to get out to the supermarket, I knew my toddler would NEED his fruit! I was delighted to discover Ella's pouches in our store. Ella's are great & here are just a few reasons why:
  1. NO added sugar, salt or water
  2. NO preservatives or thickeners
  3. NO egg, wheat or gluten
  4. BPA free packaging
  5. 100% organic baby & kids food
  6. Orthodox Union Kosher
  7. Great for travel!
  8. Easy for recipe additions (see below)
  9. Re-sealable!
  10. The packaging- it's beautiful, fun, bright & happy!
Well Gabriel absolutely LOVES a few of the flavors so, although they are purees, we've stayed customers past the hurricane threat & I now use these for smoothies for my boy. Through blogging, I was asked, along with Gabriel, to become an "Ella Explorer" & we are happy to oblige.
