We dont do the pouches.  We do jarred apple sauce or grapes.   Frozen berries is also a good way to get fruit in.   I cant remember which veggies are in season right now.

 I used to get those for my kids. It really helped to keep them in the diaper bag as a snack when they needed something. My kids loved them.

I have been putting the orgainic apple blends pouches in Max's lunch.  As for nutritional... I mean... its cooked, its not raw - but the ony ingredients are apples and then consentrate of the other fruit that in it.  The ones I buy have no added sweetners.  About 60-70 calories.  I have done apple sauce cups in the past but a lot is left in the cup and thrown away.  He pretty much sucks the pouches dry.  Fresh apples are crazy freakin expensive right now.  $5 for a 2.5# bag of bruised fuji apples. $2.99# for non-organic grapes.  Well really... almost all fruits are crazy expensive right now.  We have been doing more veggies and very little fruit just because of the cost.  Prices are stable right now on green veggies.  I think I spent a $1.50 for a bunch of broccoli, $2.99 for asperagus, $2.50 for a large head of napa cabbage, a box of washed organic romaine $2.99.  I haven't been buying much of the other colors.  I have recently started watching the inflammation index on foods and I don't have it quite all figured out yet.  I know green veggies are safe so I have been leaning that direction.

We have the pouches on occasion, but I'm too cheap to buy them on a regular basis, lol.

I tried it with all three of my kids and they don't really like them.

We got some as a gift so we tried it for my 1 yrs old he loves them but only the fruit a d veggie ones not the cheesy meaty stuff. We keep some for snacks or on the go. Right now he has a bad cold and doesn't want to eat too much so I give him fluids and punches of fruit and veggies helps hydrate him a d provides vitamins too.
