Sweetpea Baby Food and Organic Snacks. Have you tried their cookies?

When was the last time you ripped open a bag of Sweetpea Organic Cookies, served them for family, friends or guests, and had any leftover to be eaten later?  Probably not very often.   These cookies, if you have not tried them before, are addictive.  They are great for what they have as much as for what they do not have.  If you have not tried them before, you might want to have a quick read below, to see what makes these cookies so unique, which will probably lead you to run out and pick up a bag of any (or all) of the 3 flavours of these cookies;

Sweetpea Baby Food Organic Cookies

1) They are for ages 1-101.  Really they are.  The cookies are flavourful, but certainly not overpowering.  If you freeze them, young kids can teethe on them, and if you put them out on a plate, the pretty flower pattern makes them look appealing.

2) The cookies are organic.

3) They are made from 100% whole grain organic ingredients.

4) They are dairy-free.

5) They were made without salt.

6) They do not contain eggs, preservatives or additives.

7) They are certified Kosher.

8) They are made in a peanut-free facility.

9) They come in resealable bags – so you might not want to “rip” open the bag unless you know there are not going to be any cookies left over.

Whew.

And the three flavours they currently come in are; Banana Pear, Pumpkin Spice and Sweet Apple.

As a parent, you can be comfortable having your nanny leave out cookies for your children and for their playdates because they do not have much of what children are allergic to – nuts, eggs, dairy and they also cover off dietary restrictions by being certified Kosher.  The fact they taste great is secondary to their appeal across the masses, but is also what keeps people from buying them over and over again.

Did I mention that the packaging rocks!

Have a look;

What parent wouldn’t want these in their house?

If all the information I provided above has not convinced you to try these cookies, I dropped by the Sweetpea website, and pulled off some nutritional information which you certainly will find interesting as it relates to the flavours and ingredients chosen to go into the cookies.

Sweet Apple:

  • When added to food, cinnamon inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage.
  • Whole grain spelt flour has a higher protein content than normal wheat grown under similar conditions
  • Eating organic snacks ensures your child’s diet is free from harmful herbicides, pesticides and fungicides.

Banana Pear:

  • Bananas are rich in vitamin B6 and are a good source of fiber, vitamin C and magnesium
  • Pears are an excellent source of water-soluble fiber
  • Canada’s new Food Guide recommends that at least half of your grain consumption daily is whole grains – which contain phytonutrients (plant chemicals that fight disease).

Pumpkin Spice:

  • Pumpkins are a rich source of potassium
  • Spelt is a nutritious source of B2, manganese, niacin, thiamin and copper.

I’m ready for some cookies right about now, but cannot choose between the flavours, so I think I’m going to have to open a bag of each flavour, mix them all together and just enjoy what comes next, one cookie at a time.

    Great review, just one type-o. The last paragraph where it says “cover off ( should be all) dietary restrictions. Hope you don’ t mind the correction. Mom

    Urban D…. I have watched “Berry” eat a few of those goodies. She looked like she really enjoyed them….

  3. By making fresh baby food your baby you will not need to sterilize the nutrients out of it. That means less filler and more vital vitamins and minerals for your precious child.

    You will also be able to ensure that the vegetables and fruits you used are organic and not filled with chemicals and pesticides that your baby should not be ingesting.

    Hi there. Thanks for posting this. We didn’t know there were three flavours. Our store only had 2.

    My kids liked them better before they became grainy which I think is because of the different flour being used, but I like the fact they are organic, nut-free, egg-free, kosher, and that they taste good. I don’t even tell anyone the flavours, I just let them eat them. They hear “pumpkin” or “pear” and they are all “ewwwww”. But they love them.

    Do you know if they are making more flavour?

    Thanks,

    The Wagman family
