Retail price: $2 per pouch
Specs per manufacturer: We are an active couple who love nature and being outside, and we wanted to continue our thirst for adventure after the birth of our son, Miles.
While preparing for our first camping and backpacking trip with Miles, we realized that we would need a baby food that meets the same high standards that we apply at home. Before we embarked on our Appalachian Trail excursion, we created a dehydrated food for babies that is easy to prepare, light to carry, and above all… nutritious and organic! Miles loved it, so we decided to share it with families just like ours.
We hope we make your days easier in this hectic world, and let you enjoy Mother Nature with many more Miles Outside!
Findings: I was so excited to learn about Miles Outside Dehydrated Baby Food Company. What a brilliant idea! Organic, healthy baby food prepared and packaged for the backcountry. Two active parents created Miles Outside while prepping for a backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail with their infant son Miles. The result is a high quality, tasty dehydrated baby food that has the stamp of approval from a registered dietician and physician. As a lactation consultant who is concerned about what foods babies eat, I appreciate all the care and attention they put into their product. But how does it taste? I handed out samples of the product (Apple Harvest & Monkey Pudding) at a couple lectures I was giving for my book Babes in the Woods: Hiking, Camping and Boating with Babies and Young Children. And I asked parents to test it out and let me know what they thought.
Ease of preparation: A resounding 2 thumbs up. It couldn’t be any easier to add some breastmilk or water to the mix. I appreciate the re-sealable pouch to keep the product fresh and from spilling all over your pack.
Taste: The babies all finished it and none of them threw the bowl across the room so I’d say that is a pretty good vote of confidence. Just to be sure though, I had my teen age kids try it too. “Taste baby food??” they asked, “only if you pay me”. Turns out they actually liked it too and I didn’t even need to pay them for the taste test. Again, a nice vote of confidence.
I can’t wait to see what other baby and tot foods these folks come up with next. You should definitely check Miles Outside out even if the only wild place you plan to cook in is your kitchen!
