Easy weaning // My love for Kiddie Cubes & Ella’s Kitchen

kiddieella
When it comes to weaning, every parent would love to feed their baby home­-cooked food at every meal, after all it’s economical, fresh and you know exactly what you’re feeding your little one. Unfortunately time restraints mean that this just isn’t feasible for me, so I was delighted when I discovered Kiddie Cubes.

Coming to the rescue of parents everywhere, Kiddie Cubes offer your baby healthy, tasty and wholesome meals without the hard graft! From freezer to bowl in approximately 90 seconds, Kiddie Cubes really are the closest thing to home cooked meals and have gone down a storm with Phoebe.

If you haven’t heard about Kiddie Cubes before, they are 100% organic, natural, frozen cubes of goodness suitable for babies aged from four months upwards. After gentle cooking, the cubes are immediately frozen to retain the nutrients and they really are a godsend when you are strapped for time and need a quick dinner.

Phoebe is a huge fan of the whole range but is particularly fond of the ‘very veggie lamb casserole’. I have to admit, I *may* have had a spoonful myself and I can vouch that it really is yummy and tastes a million times better than some of the other baby food on the market.

Each re-sealable Kiddie Cubes pack contains 12 x 25g cubes (each cube is the equivalent to one heaped tablespoon) so you are in total control of portion size and wastage is kept to a minimum.

Kiddie Cubes are the brainchild of Issy Langly-Smith; a qualified nutritional therapist, keen cook and busy working Mum of three. When Issy’s first child was born she began to mine her interest in weaning, while spending time in her kitchen marrying her nutrition and culinary expertise to create recipes that her children, and their counterparts really liked. Thankfully for us, the business was created in 2009 and the pouches are available to buy nationwide through ASDA, Ocado, and in Cook stores.

Ella’s Kitchen pouches have also been a godsend for me with both Jack and Phoebe. Don’t get me wrong, I do the occasional bout of batch cooking, but I soon realised that it was a lot easier to whip out an Ella’s kitchen pouch and probably a lot tastier too!

If you have little ones, I’m pretty sure you will have come across Ella’s Kitchen. With colourful and engaging packaging it’s hard to miss the pouches on the supermarket shelves and thankfully the contents are impressive too! Ella’s Kitchen are our ‘go to’ brand for baby food and have been since I started weaning Jack 3 years ago. Taken from the Ella’s Kitchen website, these are the main reasons why we are repeat customers…

Another huge plus for me is that the food is 100% organic and can easily be transported thanks to the brilliant packaging that won’t break or leak; ideal for keeping in my changing bag for ’emergencies’. They are also ideal on days out as you can squeeze the puree straight out of the pouch onto the spoon! Brilliant!

Ella’s Kitchen offer a huge range of foods, suitable from 4 months old. They also have a pretty vast range of products that contain no dairy ingredients, no gluten ingredients, or are suitable for vegetarian diets.

Disclaimer*: We were very kindly sent a selection of Kiddie Cubes and Ella’s Kitchen products for Phoebe, however they are both staples in my freezer and cupboards and I wouldn’t be without them.

      They are so good Donna, and always feel healthier than jarred food xxReplyCancel

  • I like the sound of the Kiddie Cubes – I suspect I would have used these if I’d known about them when Sophie was weaning. She quite enjoyed the Ella’s Kitchen pouches – we used them a lot when we were on holiday in France as they took up a lot less space than jars and were lighter and easier to pack too!ReplyCancel
