Sweet Corn Bites

As a mum, I'm always on the look out for healthy and exciting snacks to entice my toddler and fill him up between meals.  So when I was offered the chance of trying some new Sweet Corn Bites I hoped they would be something that Freddy would enjoy.

Each pack contains eight bitesize cobbettes of 100% fresh, natural corn on the cob.  The size is perfect for a quick snack or can be used as a side vegetable.  The cobbettes are far more manageable and convenient than a full sized corn on the cob.

The corn can be microwaved, boiled, steamed, roasted or barbecued making it very versatile.  You can serve it covered in butter, but it is so sweet and tender, it doesn't need anything added at all.  it is a real taste of sunshine!

They are grown on Barfoots Farm in West Sussex with love!  The farmers practice sustainable farming and have a fabulous philosophy.  They say:

"Our farming is all about respect. We love the land because we know happy soil makes happy corn! We have a simple philosophy and that’s to grow the tastiest, juiciest, freshest veggies we can. We do this in an innovative and sustainable way, which is why the land loves us back."

I love the idea of the Sweetcorn Bites being the right size for little hands.  Freddy does like corn on the cob but struggles to hold a whole one, and then only eats a fraction of it creating waste.  The bites were perfect for him.  

It was very easy to microwave a pack of Sweetcorn Bites, just 4 minutes in the microwave with a tablespoon of water in the bag, and you have delicious sweet, crispy, juicy corn.

We served them with dinner and Freddy absolutely loved them!  They really are incredibly sweet and so fresh.  I enjoyed them too and four bites contribute one of an adults five a day.

Fresh sweetcorn is so much better than frozen or canned corn, and these bites make it so much more convenient.  It is completely natural and  a brilliant source of nutrition, containing carotenoids, vitamins A, B3 and C, plus Folic Acid, fibre, carbohydrates, sugars and protein for energy.

They are available from Ocado, and selected Tesco, Waitrose and Co-Op stores.
