Our day with Pip & Pear | Review

If you follow me on social media you may have seen me mention Pip & Pear, a local baby food brand, recently. I first discovered Pip & Pear back in December at the Waterford Harvest Festival and I was hooked from the first look. Having only recently started out the brand looked polished and professional and the story behind it only made me love them even more.

Pip & Pear

Pip & Pear was created by Irene, a Waterford mum and restauranteur. Using her own home cooked recipes, which contain up to 2 of your babies 5 a day, Irene began Pip & Pear in her kitchen. All the products are gluten free, dairy free and have no added salt, sugar or additives. ”All of the goodness, none of the guilt.” Don’t just take my word for it though because Pip & Pear have won 3 Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards for their; Spiced Apple and Pear, Banana Blue and Chicken Lickin Casserole.

Last week I met with Irene, who is such a lovely, down to earth mother, so passionate about her brand. She told me about their latest adventure, that Pip & Pear is going to be stocked in Aldi stores nationwide from May 28th, in conjunction with their next baby event. With 50% of Pip & Pears ingredients from Irish suppliers they make a perfect fit for Aldi. The 9 product range is a chilled baby food, meaning it will be found in the fridge – for me, this was a sure sign of just how fresh and homemade it was. Each product comes in an individual, portion sized, plastic container; which is reusable.


Here is a day menu we created using Pip & Pear:
Breakfast: Porridge made with a dash of milk and Stage 1 Banana Blue
Lunch: Stage 2 Chicken Lickin Casserole
Dinner: Stage 3 Baby Beef Ragu
Dessert: Stage 1 Spiced Apple & Pear

Aidan is a huge Pip & Pear fan and never leaves a single bite. The textures are perfect for the stage that they are assigned, for example stage 3 has pieces of pasta just the right size for 11 month old Aidan. These smell just like dinners you would make yourself and just like the slogan says you feel no guilt giving your baby pre-made food because it is just like home cooking. (Probably even better than mine!)


Be sure to check them out in Aldi nationwide from May 28th and on Facebook, Twitter and their website. Also, Irene has been featured on My Kids Time talking about Pip & Pear.

I was given some of the Pip & Pear range for the purpose of this review but as always all opinions are my own and honest. Pip & Pear can be found in our fridge on a weekly basis.

  1. Have been seeing these about on twitter. They look handy for when you haven’t had a chance to cook something nutritious for the baby. Would love if she did some vegetarian meals too!

  2. Oooh these look interesting!! I love finding new foods too, i’m forever looking for quick and easy pots that i can take in our changing bag so these look ideal! Great review and such a lovely read!
