The adventures of Jack Jack

The adventures of a first time Mummy and my son Jack.

The ‘Mighty 4’ from Plum

I was contacted earlier this week by the delightful people at Plum with an opportunity to review their new range of toddler snack pouches.

Jack loves pouches as he can hold them easily and enjoy his snacks without getting in a mess, which he hates with a passion. I love pouches too for similar reasons, less mess is always a plus and lots of companies have fruit pouches so I know he is snacking healthily. However I have found it a challenge to find new exciting flavours now that Jack is older as most pouches are aimed at weaning babies and contain different nutrients than Jack needs.

Plum have recently launched their ‘Mighty 4’ range, the first pouches in the UK to contain four key food groups: fruit, vegetables, dairy and ancient grains. We all worry about the amount of sugar in our children’s food and toddler snack are no different.  Plum products are 100% organic, contain no added sugar or salt and are free from all additives, artificial flavourings, colours and preservatives making them the perfect snack for busy toddlers.


These mighty pouches are a nutritious organic snack for active tots and picky eaters

We were sent all three pouches to test –

·         Blackberry, quinoa, carrot and Greek-style yogurt (12m+)

·         Sweet potato, blueberry, millet and Greek-style yogurt (12m+)

·         Kale, strawberry, amaranth and Greek-style yogurt (12m+)

The Mighty 4 range is priced at RRP £1.19 per 100g pouch. The products will be rolled out in Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda, Boots, Waitrose, Ocado and Morrisons between January and April 2014.

Blackberry, quinoa, carrot and Greek style yogurt.

We tried this one on the way back from the park and it was a great pick me up after expelling all that energy. I tried a little and am pleased to say it was sweet but not sickly and slightly tangy. Jack definitely liked it as it disappeared very quickly and he waved it at me asking for more. The addition of carrot in this pouch sounded a little unusual at first but it matched the sharper blackberry perfectly to make a smoother taste more appealing to little ones.

Sweet potato, blueberry, millet and Greek style yogurt.

This was Jack’s favourite, maybe because it contains blueberries or maybe because it was the subtle sweetness that made this a firm favourite. A perfect way of getting those much needed vegetables into fussy eaters without them knowing, the addition of sweet potato goes unnoticed unless you read the packaging.

Kale, strawberry, amaranth and Greek-style yogurt.

Jack was a little unsure of this one at first but ate it none the less. I didnt personally try it myself so cant comment on the flavour but it smelled just as lovely as any other strawberry yogurt.


On the whole I was impressed with the nutritional value and amount packed into these pouches. While a little expensive being able to pop a healthy snack in the changing bag on a day out is appealing.
