The perfect size for a side veggie

I really like the glass jars. As an urban teacher, we use the jars for art classes, but even if we didn’t they’re more earth friendly than the plastic tubs or bags that other foods come in. My son LOVES the earth’s best carrots. They’re tasty without any of the extras. I also like the size of the jar. It’s just right to use for two nights of veggie sides.

Pretty good stuff

Gotta say … I’m impressed.

I never purchased prepared baby food for my children, I made my own … but my little grandson loves this stuff. I bought the fruit variety and vegetable variety packs for my daughter-in-law and also had the same shipped to me because I care for him while mom and dad are at work. The other fruits and veggies he is ok with but he goes bananas for the bananas. I am ordering a case of just bananas because he likes it so much. I hope to have the time to start preparing homemade baby food by the time he runs out of what I already have. If not, I will keep supplementing with Earth’s Best brand of baby food.

These look, smell, and taste vile. I try each food first before I give it to my baby and have been very happy with all of the Earth’s Best varieties we’ve tried so far. The bananas however are quite disgusting. It could be the citric acid used, but it smells and tastes like it is spoiled. I have been feeding fresh banana up to this point, but bought a 12-jar variety pack of fruit which included banana, so I decided to try it today. So much for saving money by purchasing the variety pack. I will be throwing away all four jars of the banana. I will not feed anything to my baby that I wouldn’t eat myself. Like one of the other reviewers said: do not stock up on this before you try one jar first. It’s just nasty. I wouldn’t give it any stars if that was an option here.

Update: I still won’t buy these bananas again, but I wanted to say that I contacted Earth’s Best to complain. They ended up sending me coupons for a dozen free jars of baby food. So, I just wanted to add that I really am happy with the company. Just not this particular product.

Baby went wild for bananas!

This is the first solid food my daughter (4 months 3 weeks) went wild for! She loved the taste, but previous reviewers are right about this not tasting like an actual banana. I’m just excited about finally finding a first food she loves!

does not taste like bananas

I am a super picky mommy- wanting best for my baby. I was SO DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS jar. It is pink and doesnt taste like bananas. I tried it and it was not good. From now on I mash a banana with my breastmilk. I do NOT recommend!

Subscribe and Save is great for these

This was the best deal I could find for Earth’s Best 1st foods. My twins love every flavor they’ve had so far.

excellent for Babies

My(now 11 month) old has been eating this without any fuss for the last few months. this is probably the best apple sauce brand I have found which worked for her.

Best. Baby Food. Ever.

My baby loves that Earth’s Best Carrots. And everything else by them. Their food is of exceptional quality. I know–because before it goes in my baby’s mouth, I try it first. I hate peas, but the E.B. First Peas are absolutely sensational. These carrots cannot be beat. I have compared Earth’s Best baby food to Gerbers and Gerbers Organic, and there is simply no comarison. The Gerbers food–especially the green vegetables–are simply bland and a bit bitter. I cannot tell you how wonderful (or maybe I’m trying to now!) the E.B. 1st stage baby foods are. So good, in fact, that I’ve already stocked up on the variety packs of 2nd stage foods (also conveniently available on for a great price plus the free shipping). If you love your baby–and I know you do–and you want him to know just how delicious fruits and vegetables can be, BUY THIS STUFF.

My baby loves it!!

It does look different but both my daughters have enjoyed these bananas when starting on baby food. My oldest daughter is 2 1/2 and my 5 month now loves them as well!

too acidic

My 5 month old does not like these at all. They make her twinge and cringe. I tasted them and they don’t taste like bananas at all. I do like Earth’s best jar food and thought that this was a good deal. But I think that these jars have been hanging out in a sweltering warehouse somewhere… they are not good at all.

Bitter Bananna

I love all the baby food my baby eats but this tasted horrible. I think the ascorbic acid in the bananas makes it taste funny. It’s a little bit bitter and doesn’t really taste like a fresh mushed up banana. I’m going to try giving him fresh banana instead. Don’t stock up until you know they love the taste.

Wanted my daughter to keep organic as much and long as possible so we tried this brand first & this veggie when she started solids. It smells and looks bright, and from the first spoonfull (it’s not so runny it won’t stay on a spatula style spoon) she loved it! This is a veggie she doesn’t refuse.

She’ll eat a jar of this even after a full bottle if I let her! No side effects noticed and I even tasted it & found it barely sweet and wholesome.

This is a great deal and cheaper than in store; arrives bubblewrapped to death and no weird or broken jars so far.

citric acid in product

These do not taste like banana’s and are an odd pink shade. I’m sure it’s difficult to preserve pureed banana, but citric acid (predominantly found in citrus and berries) makes this food less than ideal to introduce to an infant. Citrus, berries, fish and egg whites are listed by our pediatrician as “wait until they’re old enough” foods due to allergies or the irritation they causes some infants.

BTW we normally love Earth’s Best products.

Baby loves the taste even though its a little bit sour

we have a 10 month old baby who has been on Earth’s Best foods since his 4th month. He loved the stage one foods and likes the stage 2 ones as well.

When I tasted the Apples, they are fine but a bit sour and a little more acidic than what I had imagined. However, my son gobbles it up and does not seem to mind the sour taste at all.

good food good price

I gave this to my son and he loved it – his eyes got all big and he smiled and ate the banannas and fussed when they were gone and wanted more. I think it is up to the kid – if they like it stock up if you arent sure get a variety pack and let them try it before you stock up 🙂

Will recommend!

I recently started feeding solids to my five month old baby boy.He absolutely loves Earth’s best carrots! He also loves the sweet potatoes and all the fruit varieties.

Our twin 7-month olds love this one – carrots

I subscribe to the 4 oz. version of this baby food. Considering price, I think the 4 oz. jars are a better deal.

Both our twin babies love this one with carrots as we discovered with the vegetable variety pack. Other parents have told me their babies like carrots so this one is likely to be a winner.

I’ve tried many Earth’s Best baby food in the jars products on my babies. They like all of them with only a couple exceptions. I’ve discovered they’re not fond of peas or onions, but I’ve also discovered that as they get older they will eat more types of foods. If you get something your baby doesn’t like, maybe you can keep it on hand for when your baby is a few months older and try again.

Several other varieties of Earth’s Best contain carrots. I think this is to make them sweet so that babies will like them more.

The ingredients are simply organic carrots and water. One 4-ounce jar (not this 2.5 ounce jar) has 40 calories, and daily value: 4% protein, 150% vitamin A and 4% calcium (that’s all of it; no iron for example).

Compared to other Earth Best varieties, this has very little calories but is very high in vitamin A. I’m informed that the daily intake percentage is based on an adult.
