Plum Little Foodies Review

Plum make fantastic baby food and now they have brought out a new range for toddlers called Little Foodies. They are full of exciting new flavours that are nutritious and are suitable for 1-3 year olds. They come in an attractive and convenient packaging which can be used on your travels.

Caribbean Jerk Mango & Chicken with Wholegrain Rice is a delicious blend of lightly spiced organic chicken with bits of juicy mango, a touch of coconut and nutty-tasting wholegrain rice for extra nutrition and a bit of fibre. A wonderful way to introduce little ones to the delights of island cuisine!

Moroccan Lamb Tagine with Apricots & Bulgur Wheat is a perfect hearty meal for a hungry toddler. It’s a scrumptious stew that combines our award-winning organic Welsh lamb with sweet apricots, chickpeas and a touch of mild North African spice – so delicious that they’ll never suspect it contains three portions of veg!

Neapolitan Tomato & Beef Ragu with Ditalini Pasta is our twist on an Italian classic (minus the salt and sugar that sneakily hide in most pasta sauces!) Our slow-cooked ragu incorporates a whopping eight different kinds of veg, and we’ve left the tiny pasta tubes whole to provide a bit of a chewing challenge.

Vegetable Biryani with Wholegrain Rice is perfect for young vegetarians – a moreish mixture of spinach, tomatoes, onions, raisins and chickpeas, flavoured with coconut and mild Indian spices. It also contains 3 of your toddler’s 5-a-day, which is handy if the rest of the day has been a wash nutrition-wise!

Annabelle and Callum have turned into fussy eaters the last few months, meals they used to eat they turn their noses up and the trouble is if one says 'yuk' the other one does also.  I was unsure whether they would even touch the food.  Annabelle is 4 but shes a good enough tester and like most parents its easy to give all the children the same meals as its convenient and cheaper.  Callum is 2 so in the age range that the product is intended for.  Joseph also tried the meals.

  As you can see from the above photos they tried the meals however like most new things they didn't eat it all.  They enjoyed the Neapolitan Tomato & Beef Ragu with Ditalini Pasta the most probably as its a known meal as I admit they have not tried the other meals before.

 Out of all 3 children I have to say Joseph aged 6 months preferred the meals as he finished his bowl.  Annabelle and Callum are used to meals that are not cut up so small like these meals.  As you can see its very much in my opinion like baby food where the ingredients are all mixed together.  My children do prefer there food separated  and in whole pieces.  This obviously was the reason they were not keen.  

 If you're child is used to the type of texture then do try them as they are great.  If you are like me you may not have chance to cook more adventurous meals so great for your child to explore.  Also to prepare all you have to do is pop the package in the microwave for approximately 1 minute.  It does say 30 seconds but it was still a bit cold.

Its a product to try but like everything linked to children, every child's tastes are different.
