Review: Super Yummies Toddler Snacks by Cow & Gate

On Sunday 15th May, the Greenwich Peninsula hosted a brilliant day out for everyone. The Urban Village Fete was a great hit the previous year and this year saw another fantastic turnout. Alongside workshops, food stalls and live performances there was a special area dedicated to children and families. Super Yummies had a pop-up playground for the kids and a sample stall where parents could get their hands on free samples of the brand’s toddler snacks.

The Super Yummies Discover Playground looked simply amazing. Here are some photos of the pop-up playground that was at the event.  The Super Yummies are from the Cow & Gate family and developed with mums and nutritionists to offer a healthy and natural range of snacks for toddlers from age 12 months plus.

The Discover Playground will also be making its way around a few other London events so if you missed it this time, you can catch it again (details below).

We managed to get our hands on some free samples which LO tried out. I’ve never heard from this range before a week ago (I think the brand is relatively new) but have been seeing it a lot in supermarkets like Tescos and Sainsbury’s and like other brands offering similar things, the Super Yummies are really affordable and decently sized.

Super Yummies strawberry and yoghurt fruit pieces

The fruit pieces are made from 100% fruit (freeze-dried) to offer little ones all the goodness of fresh fruit. The squeeze pouch is made of fruits and the yoghurt pouch has Greek yoghurt mixed with the fruits. The bread sticks come in spinach or tomato & basil (we had the former) and are a great natural source of fibre for the kids. The re-sealable packaging is extremely handy and a great feature which I’ve not seen done by other brands.

The verdict…
Yay for the Super Yummies!

He really liked the squeezy puree pouches, fruity pieces and rice cakes. The rice cakes are similar to the ones we normally buy so LO was very keen on eating these. Unfortunately, LO was not a fan of the bread sticks which is weird as he usually loves bread sticks. (Maybe it’s the green colouring or mild taste that he didn’t like!) I guess I’ll have to purchase the tomato & basil one in our next food shop.

I will definitely be buying LO the rice cakes as he really couldn’t get enough of them – there’s a pear and berries version which LO sampled and the apple and orange version which I will have to get for him to try out.
