Generally speaking, Freddy turns his nose up at a lot of baby food these days. Now that he eats what the rest of the family eats he finds some of the baby-specific recipes a bit bland and tasteless. However, these products have got real toddler appeal and he really enjoyed them all.
The Disney Cheese and Onion Rice Cakes were a big hit. The thin rice cakes were crunchy and palatable and the flavouring was really tasty. I had a couple myself and they were very nice (just like grown-up Snack-a-Jacks)! It is so nice to find a crispy snack that he really enjoyed that was a healthier option with no artificial additives. Mickey Mouse on the pack made them even more appealing to Freddy! They are just 59p for a good sized packet.
We also received a box of Porridge and Apple Biscuit Bakes consisting of five individually packed packs of three rectangular biscuits. Again, rather than being bland and having a cardboard texture like many baby biccies, these were oaty, crumbly, tasty and full of chunks of apple. They tasted like a grown-up posh biscuit which meant that Ian and I had to share a pack too! Kizzy also loved them, so these will be a healthier alternative for all the family. A pack costs £2.29.
The Heinz Smoothies come in individual bottles and are free from all artificial additives. They are 100% fruit with added vitamin C. The Apple and Pear variety went down a treat with Freddy! The bottles cost 89p and are a good size to pop in your hand bag for a smoothie on the go.
I am really impressed to find products that bridge the gap between bland baby food and grown up that is often considered junk. Thumbs up to both ranges from me as a parent and Freddy as a toddler who enjoys a good snack!
