EcoMom Review and $15 Gift Card Giveaway


Eco-friendly Baby Products - EcoMom®

I was given the chance to review products provided by EcoMom®. Jody, the CEO of EcoMom, sent us some yummy organic foods for the boys to try as well as a set of Boon Spoons

My first thoughts upon opening the package was "Awesome he sent us Boon Spoons". I'd heard about Boon Spoons on Facebook and I was excited to finally try them out. My second thought was "Oh no the Fiddle sticks look like carrots". See Patrick doesn't like carrots. I've never gotten this child to eat anything that even resembles a carrot, let alone something that tastes like carrots.

We had actually picked the package up on our way to dinner so I was antsy the whole time because I wanted to go home and try all our goodies. As soon as we got home I got the camera out and started snapping away. After inspecting all the packages I found something that made me VERY happy.

Just look at that nutrition label. That is the most beautiful thing I've seen on a food product geared toward children. Even my husband was impressed, and it takes a lot to impress him when it comes to nutrition.

Then came the fun part, we got to try some of the yummy food, but before we get into that let's talk a little about EcoMom®.
If you visit their site the first thing you see on the main page is a little blurb about EcoMom.
Healthy living doesn't have to be overwhelming.
Small steps matter, and make a big difference.
We Make It Easy.
Founded to address the connection between the health of our environment & the health of our children, EcoMom® is committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable, & rewarding with education, support, tools & products.*
(*Taken from the EcoMom® website)

EcoMom® is currently offering a new program called EcoPass. For $99 a year ($8.25 a month) EcoPass provides a 15% discount on every order, as well as free shipping without having to meet the $75 minimum requirement. EcoPass pays for itself in as little as four orders.

EcoMom® is also currently offering my readers a 15% discount off your first order. This offer is good until August 31, 2010. Use code SBBL519 to receive your discount.

Now it's time for the fun stuff, more pictures of the boys!

The first thing we tried was the Fiddle sticks. Now remember these are carrot flavored and Patrick despises carrots. Upon opening the package I thought they smelled good, sort of a graham cracker smell. The only complaint I have about the Fiddle sticks is I wish they came in a re-sealable bag. So what did Patrick thinks of the Fiddle sticks?
Looks like he liked them, but we can't be sure yet. Let's see what he said when Daddy asked him if it was good.
.
Color me impressed, my child just ate something that is carrot flavor, I've got to try this product. So I did, and it was good. It's soft so it's easy for them to chew.
***Fiddle Sticks are recommended for ages 12 months and up***
Next we decided to let the little Skeeber try some yummy food before bedtime. Finally! I get to try out the Boon Spoon.
How neat is that? It just screws right onto the package. That will come in handy when we travel, when we go out to eat, and when we're on playdates. In fact I am taking our new Boon spoons and some Plum Organics on a playdate this afternoon. I can't wait to show them off to the other moms. Now skeebs wasn't too impressed with the Just Peaches flavor at first, but after a few bites he decided I wasn't feeding him fast enough so he wanted to help.

Patrick really liked the Just Peaches too, and the Grammy Sammy.

All in all I give EcoMom (Plum Organics and Boon Spoon/Revolution Food) an A+ EcoMom provides fast and easy shipping, and access to Eco-Friendly Baby Products. Plum Organics and Revolution Foods offer a wide variety of products from the highchair to the lunch box. I will continue to use both EcoMom and Plum/Revolution.
