For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & Toddlers 12 Months+*
THE COMPANY: Long before Kiddylicious was born, busy mom of two, Sally Preston, a food scientist previously working with Marks & Spencer, founded Babylicious, the first commercial frozen baby food available in the UK. Growing to become one of the leading baby and toddler snack providers in the UK, The Kids Food Company, the privately-owned children’s food company that houses multiple brands, started creating a brand new line of products under the name Kiddylicious.
Based on the understanding that introducing healthy, tasty foods to babies and toddlers will establish a life-long positive relationship with food, Kiddylicious continuously works on taking the finest ingredients and transforming them into delicious snacks, and makes products for kids of all ages and stages.
THE PRODUCTS: Kiddylicious makes products for kids of all ages and stages: we are reviewing their Fruit & Veggie Crisps and Fruit Crispies.
Fruit & Veggie Crisps: After taking some of the yummiest and most popular fruits and veggies for kids, including apples, bananas, pineapples, carrots and sweet potatoes, and then slicing them into bite sized pieces, Kiddylicious’ Crisps are ‘crisped’ in a really special way to create delicious, crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth snacks that even the littlest of toddlers can eat.
Made without any added sugars, and containing only that which nature gave it, these crisps are so tasty that grown-ups can’t resist nibbling on them too!
Fruit Crispies: By taking real fruit puree and fruit juice and jazzing it up with little crispy rice pieces, these gummy treat alternatives are not only fun to eat, they are super delicious and perfect for topping cakes and deserts, or eating straight out of the bag!
Fruit Crispies only contain sugar that occurs naturally in the fruit, as well, so you can feel good about giving your kids these sweet treats – and they won’t even realize they are good for them!
NUTRITION-WISE: Although not considered Organic, All British and European manufacturers of food for children under the age of 3 years old must comply with very strict legislation controlled by the EU. The number of additives and permitted ingredients that can be used is tightly controlled and applies equally whether the food is non-organic or organic.
Furthermore, the most recent EU legislation specifies that all baby food (organic and non-organic) must contain less than 10 parts per billion of food pesticide residue, which is actually less than Soil Association accredited producers have to work to; meaning that to comply with the law, all Kiddlylicious food, while not labeled organic, has almost non-existent levels of pesticide residue.
There are also no added sugars in Kiddylicious’ Fruit & Veggie Crisps or in their Crispie Tiddlers, and each bag contains one “kiddie-sized” serving of fruit or vegetables.
At Kiddylicious, they take your child’s safety very seriously and want you to be confident that the snacks you give your children are suitable and safe. For this reason, they keep all of their allergen information on their website, making sure it is regularly verified, and updated when necessary. This includes information about the product ingredients and the environments in which they are made and packed.
*Kiddylicious’ Fruit & Veggie Crisps and Fruit Crispies were developed for toddlers aged 18 months+. However, if your little one has at least 2 teeth and is good at gumming food, you can break the Fruit and/or Veggie Crisps in little pieces and they shouldn’t have any issues (My 8 month old daughter loves them!). Just be sure to watch them eat and make sure you don’t give them pieces with sharp corners.
FINAL THOUGHTS: With so many snack items out there, it can be hard to decipher ones that are not only good for our kids, but that they will truly enjoy as well. Thankfully, Kiddylicious has made this easy for us parents by creating a line of snacks that is specifically designed for our little ones – but we of course, can enjoy too!
Whether you are looking for a “special treat” (the name I call all of Kaston’s “treat” foods), or a healthy way to sneak more fruits and veggies into your kids’ diet, Kiddylicious’ Fruit Crispies and Fruit & Veggie Crisps are the perfect answer!
