Ella’s Kitchen have brought out a new range of tasty, organic snacks for babies and toddlers.
A couple of weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised when the postman delivered a box full of snacks for Clara to try out. She’s had a great time putting them through the Clara Taste Test!
Grip Me Apple and Ginger Biscuits
The girl has a sweet tooth, just like Mummy, but I’m cautious about giving her too many sugary things. These biscuits are a nice treat without any added sugar or unhealthy ingredients.
Each box contains 12 individually wrapped biscuits which are very handy for popping in your handbag. I’ve found these quite useful for keeping Clara busy at the supermarket checkout. By that point in the shopping trip she is usually getting bored and wants to climb out of the trolley. So I
resort to bribery give her a snack to keep her calm.
They are a bit more solid than some of the other biscuits she has tried, so they don’t snap in half as easily and it takes her a little longer to eat one. They are still perfectly soft enough for her to chew and suck though, and help her learn how to use all her new teeth!
Pick Me Melty Hoops
These little hoops are perfect for tiny fingers and very soft to eat. You get quite a lot in a tub, which is great. In fact we haven’t tried the ‘vanilla and bananas’ flavour yet as Clara is still working her way through the ‘cheese and tomatoes’ tub! I tend to use these for snack time in the house, when I can just tip some hoops onto the high chair tray and watch the concentration on her face as she picks up each one individually!
Grab Me Melty Puffs
Like the hoops, these organic maize puffs are available in both sweet and savoury flavours. Clara tried ‘tomatoes and leeks’ and ‘strawberries and bananas’ and is a fan of both – as is her big sister! Izzy has a habit of polishing off Clara’s snacks so I often have to hide the bag from her so she doesn’t eat them all.
I usually give Clara maize-based snacks like these while I’m preparing her tea – they are light enough that just a couple won’t make her too full to eat her meal, but tasty enough to keep her occupied for a little while.
The bag is resealable (by using a little sticker) but if I’m taking these out I prefer to put them in a plastic tub so the don’t get squashed in my bag.
Clara has loved trying out these snacks and I think they have all made it on to her list of favourites! She also enjoyed playing in the box…
