As I am on a weight loss journey I like to cook home made healthy meals, however with half term, fitness boot camps and flying off on holiday on Saturday I have fallen out with cooking and I have lost my mojo.
So these handy lunches saved my bacon! They are super quick to heat and can even be served in the handy bowls they arrived in! .. also fab if you cant even be bothered to wash up (now I have letting out my lazy secrets!)
The range is exactly as you would expect from Plum, they are healthy and nutritious and especially balanced with toddlers in mind.
So these are the flavours we tried:
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!
In my opinion The Little Foodies from Plum are a fantastic option for instant nutritious meal needed fast! they are not the cheapest at £2.50 each however they are far better than a fast food happy meal and a damn site healthier!
The lunches have lovely toddler sized pieces and there is plenty in each portion. I was personally really pleased to see such a varied range of flavours as I do tend to cook tasty meals. We even used 2 of them for alfresco eating.
So what did Joshua (aged 2) think of these?
