Breakfast is the best meal of the day, and in ours house its no different, my children adore breakfast, almost as much as they like it when I cook a pizza for dinner, but my littlest baby Robin doesn’t get much of an option at breakfast, she just has whatever they have and shes got nothing really for herself so after looking everywhere for something for her I found..


These yummy cereals from Ella’s Kitchen, the Banana and Cinnamon muesli is designed for 10 plus months while the much smoother Strawberry and Raspberry porridge is designed for 7 plus months but I am a firm believer that ages on these don’t really matter and smoother porridge’s are brilliant for adding lumps into them.


We first tried out the Banana and Cinnamon muesli which included lumpy rice crispie like bits into them to create texture but they honestly turn into mush with the rest of the cereal, all you really need to do with them is add your babies milk which has been warmed up, let sit for a bit to soak up and serve.



Robin fed this to herself just fine but I also did spoon feed a bit to her too, she really loved it, I did however had to add a little but more milk into it because it does go rather clumpy after its sat for a while but that didn’t really stand in the way of the enjoyment Robin got from it, it was completely eaten up.



While people do moan about pre-packaged food, Ella’s Kitchen is by far my favorite and go to for a lot of things, breakfast now included, I adore their dedication to children’s health and keeping things organic.

Have you tried any of the Ella’s Kitchen breakfast products?

Until next time.

During the Christmas period, we relied heavily on pre-made food for Robin, I mentioned before that she had lost some weight and I had started to spoon feed her along with her having finger food as well to help her gain weight back that she lost from when I switched to finger food only so naturally I was on the look out for some new treats that we’ve not tried before..


Entering Heavenly Squishies, they are basically smoothies and perfect for little hands to hold and of course the perfect size for pack lunches or the changing bag plus the lids are resealable so if they aren’t finished you can pop the lid back on for later but refrigerate as soon as possible like any food product, we found ours at our local sainsburys but you can find them anywhere and there are four pouches in a box.

They are designed for 6 months plus but I truly believe there is no age limit with smoothies and Robin loves them, I think shes pleased that she can hold these and eat away at them to her hearts content.. and I love that shes getting some fruit other than her usual blueberries.


What I think I love the most about them is the fact that they are made with coconut milk and there for vegan and of  course friendly to those children who cannot have dairy, I have recommended them to my good friend who’s little girl suffers from an array of food allergies, I am always on the hunt for little snack ideas for her as I know how hard it is to find pre-made food with no dairy in it at all.

They are made with only fruit, nothing added not even water so what you are giving them is purely fruit and coconut milk with a little bit of added lemon juice with just natural sugar from the fruit, no nasty things added and I know how important it is to make sure children keep their sugar limit down.


Heavenly Squishies are simply just the nicest things I have found from shopping around and I make sure that I grab a box whenever I see them in stores and I’m excited to experiment with them by adding them to her morning porridge and also putting them into the freezer for the summer months so everyone can enjoy some fruity ‘ice cream’ to cool themselves down.

I am pretty pleased I found them and if you see them grab some too, have you tried any Heavenly baby products before? I wrote a little review about their  veggie waffle biscuits which you can read here.

Until next time

Most of my little reviews always start the same way, I went shopping to my local sainsburys and found…

.. Nothing is different here of course, always looking for new things to have R eat and enjoy I had to get them, also the lovely red sticker was also a tempting sight.. as we all know I love a good deal haha.

Heavenly Tasty was started by Shauna Mcarney-Blair after she noticed it was hard to find food in stores, because every now and then a packet or jar doesn’t do any harm, that supplied many for children with allergies, and as my older two had both a lactose intolerance and a dairy allergy, a lot of their food was either made, or religiously looked at whenever I brought them..

But this was back in 2010 and its amazing what changes in seven years.. as there are a lot more food for children with different allergies available.



They remind me of those little caramel wafers you can get, the ones you place on top of your hot drink and the caramel melts, they are crunchy and around the size of a 50p so perfect for little hands to grab and crunch..



I gave R these at breakfast, she had a lot of fun playing with them and eating them, and if you cant play with food then wheres the fun in that? she seemed more fond of the carrot one, but not to bothered with the beetroot one, BUT I believe she isn’t fond of the taste of beetroot as in a previous review she turned her nose up at the beetroot pouch..


My 7 year old also tried some, he was surprised at the fact the purple beetroot one didn’t taste fruity but told he they tasted nice, which for a picky 7 year old is a win win in my books


Do I recommend them? – yes and no, R did end up throwing a lot of them on the floor, I am not sure if that’s just general playfulness on her part or if she didn’t enjoy them, she did eat some of them but lets just say the hoover had to come out earlier than it usually did haha.

Price Tag? – not that bad, I got these for 1.50 but I think they are around the 2.50 mark at full price, I am looking at finding more to try in future so their full price isn’t a put off.

Anything else? – The packaging, they didn’t really need to be in a box, inside a plastic bag, surely they could improve and have all the information on a bag rather than on the back of a box that simply isn’t needed.

Other than that, they weren’t that bad, I can see myself popping them in the nappy bag when we go out anywhere..

You can find Heavenly Tasty at all supporting stores, you should go and try some..

Until next time.

We have gone Kiddylicious like crazy in my house at the moment, if you have been reading my blog for a while now you would’ve seen many different pouch type reviews here and here, and while shopping for bits and pieces to eat when we went to my meet up in Birmingham, I saw these for sale..

…and of course decided to try R on them and she really did enjoy them.

What are they? – Little Bistro meals are slow cooked meals, so similar to your favorite stew, but designed for smaller tummies and mouths, packed full of goodness and organic products, I do enjoy using the pouch meals because they are so quick and easy, and as I am a mum of three I find it hard to deal with everyone at the same time, so these are perfect for that.

They are also brilliant of you go out anywhere and you haven’t started introducing bigger lumps and aren’t doing Baby Lead Weaning.

Price range? – I would say these are one of the few expensive brands of baby food out there, but I think what you pay often equals to better quality, I tried R on a fish pie one, and it smelt like fish.. it smelt and tasted like the ingredients that it said it had which is a big plus with baby food, no mushy tasteless stuff here, the large ones are around £2 and the smaller ones which are designed for 7 months plus are around £1.30 but it obviously depends on where you buy then from and if there are any deals on, I got mine because my local sainsburys had them on a deal..

Would I recommend them? – I do, but I obviously will say that if you are worried about the shopping bill then go for a cheaper brand or look up the recipes of these and make them yourself, I just find them super handy when I am out and about and when I simply haven’t got the time to cook up something. but I do recommend them!! go get some yourself.

Anything Else? –  I love the packaging, I love how neat it looks and the fact that you can see exactly what is in the package, which is very different from the other pouches I have tried which is what peaked my interest in them in the first place, they LOOK yummy, I am a stew-a-holic so these are a win win for me!

If you are a fan of trying new baby food I highly recommend giving these a go, you can get them in any local stores and I think you can also buy them on the Kiddylicious website.

Have you tried any of these Little Bistro pouches? what do you think of them?

Until next time

During my trip to Birmingham we popped to a sainsburys to grabbed some bits to eat on the journey and one of these was some kiddylicious products, R loved them so much that I decided that when I went to do my weekly top up shop to get some, and thankfully all the Kiddylicious snacks and pouches were on sale.. so I grabbed a load of different finger food to try.

Kiddylicious is a UK based company that started up in 2002 by Sally Preston, she orginally made frozen baby food from the ages of 4 to 12 months which was the first frozen baby food company in the UK, that Waitrose supplied, and over the years have won many awards and have grown to be a globally loved product adding many different lines as the years went on, watch this space for future reviews of their products as I sort of went crazy with the shopping..

The first being the Blueberry Wafers, I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I opened them up, I imagined something along the lines of the pink wafer biscuits that my older children love..


They are made out of natural products, have no gluten, egg, nuts and dairy, and have zero added salt, completely free from added preservatives and have no artificial flavors of colors, they remind me of a meringue with their texture and the only way I can describe them as is like a cloud of purple, they are extremely light and perfect for little hands to get hold of.



As you can see R very much enjoyed them, she wasn’t to sure when she first got hold of them, but once she realized they are something to eat she gobbled them down, I wish I had known about this company and their products when I had my eldest two as they are perfect for children with allergy issues and are completely free of dairy..

Would I recommend them – YES for sure, if you are like me and can be a little anxious about choking but want your baby to learn how to use her pincer grip and feed themselves then these are perfect for Baby Lead Weaning..

Price Range? – They can be a bit pricey but compared to the other higher branded baby food this has a mid range price tag, I got these while they were half price off in my local sainsburys but I wouldn’t say they are bank breakers, great to buy when needed too as they have smaller packets in stores as well as larger multi packs..

Anything Else? – Nothing really, they are pretty good and there isn’t much more to say on them, they do taste pretty nice.. yes I tried one.. needs must after all..

Have you tried anything from Kiddylicious? what would your favorite be?

Until next time
