As a busy working mummy I worry and stress about preparing meals for Baby J of an evening. Depending on what hubby and I are having, sometimes I need to find an alternative for Baby J's dinner, and if I've been held up at work I need it quickly. I have never had an issue with giving Baby J prepared food, so I keep a stash on hand incase they are needed.
Plum baby food's recently asked via Facebook if anyone would like to sample their new Little Foodies range, I e-mailed in and was lucky enough to be sent a sample of their new range to test.
Here's what they say:
"Our Little Foodies meals are full of exciting flavours, from savoury ragu to tangy tagine, and are carefully crafted to encourage little ones to love their food. They come in convenient, easy-to-serve dishes to encourage tots aged 1-3 years to feed themselves, and the chunky texture (including chewy bits like whole raisins and peas) will help them develop the jaw and tongue muscles they need for good language development."
I was sent -
- Caribbean Jerk Mango & Chicken with Wholegrain Rice
- Moroccan Lamb Tagine with Apricots & Bulgur Wheat
- Neapolitan Tomato & Beef Ragu with Ditalini Pasta .
- Vegetable Biryani with Wholegrain Rice
Over the period of 3 weeks an occasion arose when I needed to use a prepared meal, so I give each one of the 4 meals ago.... They were a big hit with Baby J, each one he loved and finished the lot, usually with steamed meals he'll manage three quarters of them. Each organic meals was packed with flavour, and introduced Baby J to a wide range of new and exciting flavours. It was a dream feeding him them, and in between mouthfuls he gave the 'mmmm' noise which indicates he's enjoying it. Big Thumbs Up! I also sampled each one, and was surprised with the flavours, they tasted really good.... and don't worry mummy only had one spoonful... honestly Baby J finished them all himself. The looks appetising and judging by the empty bowl Baby J agreed too!
So will I be buying them again? Yes, I think as a back up meal in the cupboard they are perfect, my only concern is the price at around £2.25 each they are a little pricey compared to others around, but given that I know Baby J loves them and will wolf them down, they're worth it.
