Starting Solids? Why I Chose Nurture Life for My Baby

Let's be honest, introducing finger foods is nerve-wracking, not to mention so much freaking work. You wonder: What foods are safe? What if they struggle to chew it? Can I give them what I’m eating? Do they really need three meals? And don't even get me started on cutting everything into perfectly bite-size pieces!

I get it—I've been there myself with two little ones. I felt completely overwhelmed with my first baby. This second time around, I was wiser on how to tackle this milestone and discovered a little secret that not only eased my anxiety, but simplified life for me as a busy working mom: outsourcing my baby’s food prep with Nurture Life.

Why I chose Nurture Life

Honestly, using Nurture Life’s Finger Foods made THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE in my feeding journey with my second baby versus my first. I cannot stress enough how these prepared meals helped streamline my daily routine. Instead of the mental load of thinking about what, when and how I would cook food for my growing baby amongst my crazy schedule, Nurture Life was my savior in delivering nutritious meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner – right to my home weekly. Their finger foods are made for babies 10+ months, and I appreciate that they're perfectly sized and soft. All I have to do is heat them up and serve. Voila! 

Nurture Life vs. Other Finger Foods Brands

If you know me, you know I’m an over-researcher and my quest for a solution to feeding my baby was no exception. Compared to other ready-made meals or store-bought options, Nurture Life really stands out.


Every meal includes veggies, ensuring my baby gets at least one serving of vegetables in her diet. Plus, each dish provides a good source of protein to keep her feeling full and energized. I also appreciate that Nurture Life uses fresh ingredients – nothing is ever frozen unlike some options. Even better, all the meals are freshly made each week, versus other prepared foods and kids meal delivery services that are often made months in advance or frozen.

Ingredient Safety

All of Nurture Life’s food is prepared in a facility that maintains the highest food safety standards. Nurture Life follows strict culinary processes, and they even have dedicated FSQA (Food Safety and Quality Assurance) managers who ensure that safety and quality practices are upheld at all times.

Food is pre-cut into small bite-sized pieces and is soft enough that you can easily squish it between your fingers – the winning combo for starting solids.

You also have the ability to filter options by allergens like egg free, gluten free, milk free, sesame free, etc. This is so important because both my kids had allergies – Caden couldn’t eat egg and Willow needed to avoid dairy.


One thing I absolutely love is Nurture Life’s weekly subscription service, which means I can say goodbye to the hassle of grocery shopping, cooking, and cleanup – everything I need is conveniently delivered right to my door. They offer a variety of kid-friendly dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner like scrambled eggs with sausage and sweet potatoes, shepherd's pie, mini shell bolognese, mini mac & cheese with broccoli, and chicken bite minis. And if you also have an older kiddo like me, you’ll love the Kids Meals options like beef taco pockets, teriyaki salmon, and curly carbonara with hidden cauliflower.

Nurture Life is a Must-Buy for Busy Moms

My initial hesitation in outsourcing my baby’s food prep was cost, with meals priced at $6.49 individually and discounts given when you purchase 10 items or more plans. But when I consider the amount of time I save, the convenience, and the relief in knowing that my baby was eating foods safe her age, I easily justified these purchases. If you too are anxious about this feeding journey stage, are busy, or simply just don’t like to cook, I can’t recommend Nurture Life enough.
