We’re mid way through weaning at the moment. Some purée, some finger food is the approach we’ve found works best. For Aisha got in touch and asked my daughter to review their new range of baby foods. Which we said yes to, of course!
The range is for sale in Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and Whole Foods for around £1.45 per pouch. Their unique selling point is that they are halal, so suitable for Muslim children to wean on, something which other brands cannot provide. We were kindly sent all 6 flavours to try:
- Jamaican Jerk Chicken with Mango.
- Authentic Indian Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry.
- Mild Curried Chicken Dhal.
- Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Couscous and Apricots.
- Vegetarian Tomato and Chunky Chickpea Curry.
- Shepherd’s Pie with Lamb and Aromatic Spices.
All suitable for children over 7 months, or stage 2 purées.
I will admit, I was a little concerned about giving my daughter curry at 7 months old, fearing it would be too spicy, but I needn’t have worried! I tried all of the pouches myself before she ate them and none were spicy. They were packed full of flavour and tasted exactly like what they were expected to be.
The biggest test was what my daughter thought of them. Usually when she tries a flavour for the first time she is hesitant to eat it, however, she was happy to get stuck right in. She absolutely loved them. So much, in fact, that she didn’t even spit any out (a nice easy clean up for me).
I am a fan of pouched food, purely for the ease of feeding her on the go, so I honestly think I would buy these in the shop again. I like the thought that she is getting used to a wide range of flavours that I wouldn’t have expected her to enjoy at her young age. My mind thought as far as a spag bol chunky purée, not jerk chicken! She will be a better eater for getting used to these flavours earlier as well. I didn’t like curry until I was 18 because I was such a fussy eater.
If you see them in the shops and fancy a change for your little one, definitely don’t pass these by. They are practically the same price as the competitors and the pouches are so chock full of flavour that your baby will be getting their taste buds tingling even at 7 months.
We were gifted the pouches for purposes of review, but I value my readers and my integrity so the opinions I have are my own and honest. I care about you all too much to compromise that!
