I really like this product for traveling! My seven month old loves it, and has learned to suck it out of the package like a juice box. It reallly is not very messy. My only thought is that it would be nice to have this kind of option in a straight veggie, either on it's own (carrots for instance) or without the fruit, which makes it quite sweet. I personally think it is too sweet to give for each meal, but it is great for traveling and for a treat.
