Here are some testimonials from mums who have used Mother Hen products:
“As a new mom, books teach us all the same thing about feeding babies: make your own purees! Although this is more often a dream than a reality for me, the aspect of offering quality, fresh and organic food remained a priority but sometimes just did not fit with my lifestyle and, let's be honest, my cooking skills. After research and several efforts around the oven, I decided to try Mother Hen products when my son was 8 months old. What a relief! Their products are organic and contain no added sugar or s alt. My son loves them, they are easy to find and their price is reasonable. Quality, ease and efficiency! I recommend it without embarrassment and without hesitation to all mothers. – Bianca, mum to Tristan, 16 months.

That she was going to love my little purees made with a lot of love in the best food processor I could find on the market. Uh…that's not how it happened at all! Mycasserole did not like my meat purées! More liquid, less liquid, more broth, no broth, in short… there was nothing to do: it was grimace and tight mouth. One day, I discovered Mother Hen. They know what babies like. My daughter was finally opening her mouth and mom didn't feel guilty as it was natural with no chemicals! – Stéphanie, mother of Chloé, 12 years old.
