I must admit, I always think of Ella's Kitchen as a baby and toddler food brand, but I was surprised to discover over the summer that their snacks still appeal to the Madhouse Mini testers who are now aged 5, 9 and 13 !
You may remember our Trunki PaddlePak Picnic at the beautiful Bodiam Castle where we all tucked in to a selection of Ella's Kitchen snacks. The Raspberries & Bananas Multigrain Nibbles, Cheddar & Leeks Multigrain Wheels, Parsnip & Poppy Seed Cracker Bites and Raisins & Spelt Cookies all got a resounding thumbs-up.
The whole range of fruit pouches are also frequent companions on our adventures out and about, geocaching and exploring the countryside.
Ella's Kitchen recently sent us some more of their snacks to try out from their exciting new snacking range for older toddlers from 12 months +. We discovered Apples & Cinnamon Multigrain Nibbles, Carrots & Lentils Multigrain Sticks and Tomatoes & Fennel Seeds Cracker Bites, along with the Raisins & Spelt Cookies and Cheddar & Leeks Multigrain Wheels that we'd enjoyed before. Once again, despite a few dubiously raised eyebrows when reading the names on the bags, the whole lot were declared delicious !
Ella's Kitchen don't just focus on filling little mouths though, they also want to hear what comes out of them ! Last month, they encouraged talkative toddlers to voice their opinions on everything from sibling rivalry quibbles to their favourite lunch time nibbles, with the launch of the first ever ‘little’ Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park. By letting them take over Hyde Park’s Speakers’ Corner and stand proud on their toy boxes (instead of soap boxes), Ella’s Kitchen inspired toddlers to stand up for good snacks and say a big NO in protest to unhealthy, bad nibbles.
With snacks that taste as good as the ones we've been trying, they should have no trouble converting kids to their healthier nibbles !
