I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for my two girls. They’re 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 and seem to eat constantly at the moment.
I feel like I’m a constant snack machine – and then they’ll easily polish off their meals, too. Big bowls of porridge in the morning, a round of cheesy toast for lunch with the current favourite – celery sticks – and they astonished me a couple of weeks back by eating bowls of salmon and noodles with a thai style sauce for tea.
I always have a snack box on the go when we’re out and tend to fill it with cereal bars, bananas and raisins, but they do get bored of them.
The snacks are suitable from 6 months upwards and follow the Plum Baby ethos of organic ingredients. I was impressed with the little wafers, which are made from buckwheat, plus fruit and veggies. They would have been perfect for weaning and they’re great now to carry around as snacks. My two just grabbed them and ate them so I assume they are a hit!
They’re a nice size and very easy to hold. The flavours and ingredients are very different to those I’ve seen before – they’re available in spinach, apple and kale or pumpkin and banana. The combinations obviously work well, as my children can be picky about spinach in particular.
They’re not too pricey compared to some of the baby and toddler snacks I’ve bought. Tesco currently have these on offer for £1.99 and they would usually retail at around £2.49 for 6 packets (each containing 3 wafers).
I’d definitely buy Little Yums again – my children enjoy them, and I feel like I’m getting more fruit and veg into them!
