14WHY DO YOUR PURÉES COME IN CUPS VS. POUCHES?
There are several benefits to feeding your baby using a cup and spoon. First, you are able to see the quality of the food you are feeding your little one, rather than blindly offering them a pouch to suck from without the ability to inspect the contents. Using a cup also allow for interaction between you and your baby. It allows your baby to experience foods with texture, aroma and color. It assist with the development of hand-eye and hand-mouth coordination. Your baby is able to take breaks when eating and stop eating when full. Using a cup helps your baby learn to chew and most importantly, reduces the risk of choking.
