Plum little foodies review

Back at the end of May we were sent the new range of Plum’s little foodies to review. They are aimed at toddlers aged 1 – 3 but Jack had no problems with the size of the chunks at 11 months old. They have 4 exotic flavours to tempt little taste buds in their exploration of food,

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, slow-simmered stew that combines our award-winning organic Welsh lamb with sweet apricots, chickpeas, delicious veg, 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 vegetables to give your little one a balanced blend of vitamins, 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 portions of fruit and veg, which is handy if the rest of the day has been a wash nutrition-wise!

Little foodies range

Jack was eager to try them all but the Caribbean Jerk chicken and mango was gobbled up almost the minute he was in his high chair. He was a little unsure of the vegetable biryani at first but once he got used to the new flavours he soon demolished it. I like the range of different flavours instead of the same Sunday lunch chicken or beef stew that other brands offer.

The little foodies range was created as a convenient way to serve nutritious meals to your little ones when one the go or if strapped for time. No matter how much we try to make home cooked meals there’s always those days when we cant cook a meal (like moving day) or  something unexpected happens (like my little one hurling himself off the bed and ending up in A&E for 3 hours). In a handy travel sized packet a little foodie meal fits perfectly into my changing bag along with all the other necessities and meant my little one had a hot meal in between baby groups instead of something cold or having to carry an extra bag along with the other 3 we have on the pram already. They can also be served in the bowl they come in meaning no washing up or dirty bowls to cart back home.

These meals are great for little ones learning to feed themselves and the chunky texture helps to develop  the jaw and tongue muscles needed for good language development.

At £2.25 Plum’s little foodie meals aren’t the cheapest things you could feed your children but with Plum you know your little one is eating healthy, veg packed meals and not those laden with fat, salt or sugar. Like all Plum food they don’t include preservatives, artificial colours or flavours, GM ingredients or added sugars, Plums “No added nasties” promise. The little foodies range is also dairy free making them prefect for tots with lactose intolerance.

Disclosure: I was sent the products free of charge for the purpose of reviewing. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in anyway.
