Toddler snacks review: Organix Goodies
I’m an Organix No Junk Mum, which is why they’ve recently sent me a sneak peak of their new Goodies products, which aren’t yet in the stores. The kids and I have had a lovely time, tasting and testing.
All the treats are for toddlers and children aged over 12 months, and all fit the Organix No Junk Promise – to add nothing unnecessary to their food.
Here are our thoughts:
Mini Oaty Bites
These are bite-sized portions of their Soft Oaty Bars, individually packaged, in apple and orange, and raspberry and apple flavours. The bigger bars are already a regular with my kids as an after-school snack so these little bites are a big hit. A blend of oats, raisins and fruit juice, these bar-lets are brilliant for quick fillers or to go on lunch plates.
Sweet Cinnamon Popcorn, and Banana Popcorn
We love popcorn and this is a really healthy version – the baked corn and rice snacks are coated with fruit juice, and as with all Organix products, there’s obviously no added sugar. They’re gluten-free too, and contain added vitamin B1 (thiamin). Plus the popcorn comes packaged in handy little bags. The cinnamon version was my fave – my eldest daughter said they tasted of hot cross buns (funnily enough). We weren’t so sure about the banana ones as the flavour wasn’t as pronounced – sorry, Organix. Probably would work well with toddlers, I reckon, who haven’t yet been corrupted by the flavours of cinema-sweet popcorn.
Cocoa & Orange Crispy Bars, and Berry Crispy Bars
My little boy really enjoyed these Berry Crispy Bars in particular. I liked the interesting, bubbly texture made by all the puffed rice, plus raisins and juice. There’s also of course cocoa powder to make the chocolatey flavours.
Mini Cheese & Chive Breadsticks
This was our overall favourite of the new treats that we tried. Good flavours with the cheese and chives coming through – pretty moreish. They come in small bags, perfect grab-and-go size for toddlers and preschoolers’ snacks or lunchboxes. Made with wheat flour and wholegrain oat flour, they also contain added vitamin B1 (thiamin). I reckon overall these are healthy snacks, and perfect for days out.
