Mummy Review: Little Bellies has a great snack range, and I was excited at the opportunity to provide a review in exchange for some samples. This has no effect on my opinion of the products, and the opinions and recommendations here are my own. Please read my disclosure policy for further information.
So, my Bub has started solids, and along with that bittersweet moment I have discovered some great products that have popped up since my last child! One of these such products is the Little Bellies organic snack range.
These snacks are certified organic, and either low to no added sugar or salt and no artificial nasties! Some even boast the label for gluten and wheat free, which I know is truly helpful for some parents and their children.
I loved discovering these new products, as they remind me of the US Gerber Puffs which my first absolutely loved! I loved the way they would melt while she ate them, and that they were good for babies and children to eat. These Little Bellies snacks do just that! (The packaging may have changed since we tried these, but they are still a loved snack for baby!)
Suitable for babies from 9 months on, they have a range of crunchy, melt-in-the-mouth snack foods that are an absolute essential for my pantry! Now, onto the specific types! (They do have more in their range than shown here, so check out their other products in your local grocery store!)
These ones are certified organic, low in sugar & salt, gluten & wheat free and have no artificial nasties. The flavours here are corn and pumpkin.
My Taste Tester wasn’t willing to give the pumpkin ones a go, but loves the corn puff flavour! They’re crunchy and melt easily in your mouth, so great for bubs 9 months and over, even if they don’t have their teeth! These flavours seem the mildest of the lot, so perfect for the younger ones who prefer the blander tastes. My Taste Tester adeed she would prefer them flavoured strawberry. ?
These ones are certified organic, low in sugar & salt, gluten & wheat free and have no artificial nasties. The flavours here are blueberry and baked apple cinnamon. (I am aware they also have this in carrot flavour.)
These were a big hit! My Taste Tester absolutely loves the blueberry ones, and enjoys the crunch as she finishes the bag. They also melt quite well afterwards. The blueberry flavour do seem to colour her a bit purple though, so just have a wipe handy so they don’t stain your white top. ? I’m a fan of the baked apple cinnamon ones, as they smell and taste delicious! The flavour is very slight, but nice, and the Apple ones don’t have the colouring effect of their purple sidekick.
These ones are certified organic, have no added sugar or salt, and have no artificial nasties. The flavours here are banana and berry & apple.
My Taste Tester absolutely loved these! She’s a big fan of popcorn, so these are the perfect alternative! Not only do they have a similar softness, crunch, and melt in the mouth goodness of popcorn, but they have no kernels! My Taste Tester polished off the banana flavour quite rapidly, and munched a little on the berry & apple, which I have to say have a nice flavour. The berry and apple have a slight colouring to them, but I found no issues with them colouring fingers and faces here. The soft corn was also the least messy, and left practically no crumbs when eaten.
So, overall, my Taste Tester and I were quite impressed with the range of goodies here from Little Bellies, and will definitely have to keep some in our pantry for later!
Little Bellies also has more snacks than just these, so be sure to check them out on your next shopping trip! They have rice cakes, hoops and loops, and gingerbread men to name a few more. These tasty treats can be found at your local Woolworths or Coles stores either online or in-store. Go and pick up a pack today!
