Food Jars

The PURITY story began all the way back in 1953. Capetonian Don Thompson noticed how hard South African mothers had to work to provide delicious meals for their little ones. Don had a wide knowledge of the food canning industry and was aware of not only the convenience of sealed foods, but their nutritional value. He teamed up with his wife Ruth, a dietician, and his cousin Helen, a chemist, to develop a range of convenient sealed baby food that not only tasted great, but also locked in all the essential nutrients young bodies need to grow up healthy and happy. When PURITY first started, we were producing 10 varieties of baby food in a factory in Cape Town's colourful District Six. Over 64 years later, PURITY now offers over 160 variants across a comprehensive range of baby and mother products, all specially developed to meet the nutritional and care needs of mothers, babies and toddlers. Each PURITY product is created under the guidance of a team of experts, including Pharmacists, Paediatricians, Dermatologists and Dieticians.

Purity Food Jars are great when you're On-the-Go. They are convenient sized jars that easy slip into side pockets of nappy bags or even handbags. What's great is that in most cases you don't need to heat up the food jar and that that portions are pretty close to the quantity a baby in that age group would eat. While my son really enjoyed the fruit and orange vegetable flavours, the other veg and meats options were not tasty in the slightest. It seemed to lack key ingredients to meet that flavour. As baby gets older, these fruit flavours make excellent snack time meals.

They don't get the flavours right. Perhaps because of restrictions on sodium in our food. But the combinations sometimes are weird. If I could relay to them a review and suggestion on their flavours I'd like to do that because I like the convenience of the food jars as a contingency plan on "off" days.

My daughter who is now 3 still enjoys purity jars. She literally picks them up when we go shopping. Initially I used to deny her but i later realized that it’s a loosing battle. As a baby, she didn’t like the vegetables and spargetti ones, perhaps because the consistency was thicker than the fruity ones. She really loved and still love the fruits ones. I give her as a snack at least once a day. I love them because they are easy to carry when traveling and can be fed warmed or as is. They are pure convenience and they are filling.
