Little Fingers Baby Foods ~ A Review | My Motherhood Diary

When babies start to wean it's imperative they have the right diet and right foods. I recently attended a HENRY (Health, Exercise and Nutrition for the Really Young) course at my local Children's Centre, and although Dexter is much too old to be weaning, I learnt a lot about first finger foods and introducing different textures and flavours to babies.

When Dexter was young, I was lucky that I had an Annabel Karmel app for my iPhone and made a lot of his purees and finger foods myself, but they are very time consuming and involve a lot of ingredients, so many that I was making more trips to the supermarket for him than I was doing myself. Little Fingers Baby Food helps to alleviate that problem.

Little Fingers Baby Food offer delicious and nutritious organic baby foods which are freshly handmade, frozen to keep extra fresh, and delivered to your home. They are based in West Yorkshire however, are branching out and are available in some local stores too.

When Little Fingers popped over a couple of treats for Dexter his eyes lit up and immediately started grabbing the packaging. After a little chat with Little Fingers, and on her exit to the door, he jumped up and followed her out! Definitely wanted more snacks.

So what did we get?
Squash Bites, Apple and Sultana Mini Cakes, Lentil and Cheese Fingers, and Courgette Bites.
All come frozen and packaged well, with a very good date on them for the freezer.

First of all we tried the apple and sultana mini cakes, obviously I had to have one too. They are the perfect size for little hands, and he wolfed it down quickly. They tasted absolutely delicious, and are a quick and easy snack to grab either at snack time or on the go. Secondly we had a mixed dinner of squash bites, courgette bites and the lentil and cheese fingers with sweetcorn and peas. Again, gone within a few minutes! I love the fact they are the right size for him to feed himself, and he really enjoyed all the different flavours. It's something a little different to what he would normally eat, and they are ideal to keep in the freezer when you need a quick snack or an easy dinner.

So what did we think?
Dexter loved each and every one of the bits, and ate them quickly. You could tell by his expression that he was interested in each of the flavours too which is essential when babies start to wean. Not only do these bites help Dexter him feed himself (which is a huge relief to me) it also encourages coordination and independence too.

I would definitely recommend them to all parents who are about to start weaning, and to those who have hungry toddlers too!
