Traveling light with a baby on board is next to impossible. A change of clothes, diapers, wipes, formula, and a handful of distracting toys later, you barely have room for the tot.
NurturMe baby food can help lessen the load.
The powder-like mixture is quick-dried from 100 percent organic veggies and fruit (think astronaut grub). Sealed in flat, single-serve pouches that weigh less than half an ounce, they’re perfect for purse, pocket, glove compartment, or diaper bag. Just add water or breast milk, stir, and serve. No clanking jars.
Choose from peas, squash, apples, and sweet potatoes; serve alone or blend for variety. The quick-dry process doesn’t cook off vitamins and minerals, so each portion is packed with the maximum amount of nutrition. Without any extra baggage.
