A Few Reasons to Love Plum Organics

Last summer, we featured a list of 14 sustainable food companies you can trust, which we compiled with the help of GoodGuide, a company that rates the health, environmental and social aspects of companies. We asked GoodGuide to use its rating system to devise a list of food producers that are independently owned, create a wide range of healthy products and do their part to benefit the world, both ecologically and socially. When they came back with their list, Plum Organics was one of the top scorers. Plum Organics was a top scorer on the list of sustainable food companies you can trust.

At the time, I was pregnant, so I was overwhelmed with choosing baby prep gear — not worrying about baby food, which seemed a far distant concern. Fast forward almost a year and my baby is now 6 months old (!!!) and starting to try a few foods (so far, bananas and sweet potatoes).

Great timing, then, that Plum’s PR department just so happened to send out a sample pack of its “Just Veggies” line for babies ages 4 months and up. As his second food was sweet potato and he’d already had some pureed potato we cooked up at home, the Just Sweet Potato veggie blend was a perfect thing to give him. And he loves it!

But more important, here are a few reasons I love it:

• Plum Organics features fruits and veggies that are gently cooked and minimally processed.

• They’re all certified organic and have no high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, artificial ingredients or GMOs.
