As H&C get older and more active it becomes more and more difficult to get food down their throats when we’re out and about, especially if there are no high chairs to hand to physically restrain them. There have been ham sandwiches smeared up walls, incredibly well fed dogs and adults running around chasing toddlers with loaded spoons. I’m sure these all sound familiar and you’ll be pleased to know there is a solution – pouches!
With most meal pouches, as soon as tots become old enough to hold them and feed themselves they’re supposed to move on to the next stage. The problem being that the next stage isn’t quite so convenient and definitely requires attention from both adults and toddlers to be eaten, not to mention a highchair and a spoon. That’s a little too much of an event for us so, when we’re on the move and since that’s the only time H&C really get pouches, we’ve stuck to the stage 2 and even stage 1 fruit pouches.
Until the lovelies at Plum sent us some Mighty 4 pouches to review anyway.
Mighty 4 pouches are aimed specifically at tots aged 1-3 so they’re PERFECT for my independent little ladies and since they come in a range of 3 different yogurty flavours they’re yummy enough to hold their attention right until the very last drop and beyond. H can often be seen running around still desperately trying to sook out the dregs of a pouch long after it’s been finished.
The flavours are a bit… on the inventive side but the Peas seem to love them so someone in the Plum kitchen definitely knows what they’re doing!! There’s a strawberry, kale & amaranth one, a sweet potato, blueberry & millet one and a purple carrot, blackberry & quinoa one. All of them are mixed with greek style yoghurt and because they’re Plum you can be certain that all the ingredients, in whatever seemingly bizarre combination, will be 100% organic. And, of course, each pouch counts as 1 of your active toddlers 5 a day.
For anyone wondering (because I certainly was!) amaranth is a grain which is rich in calcium, magnesium and iron which are all important to little growing bones and active brains.
*Plum very kindly sent us some Mighty 4 for the purposes of this review however all thoughts and opinions are our own*
