Sun, sand and snacks with Ella’s Kitchen

I don’t know about you, but my children are always hungry! They can have just polished off a huge roast dinner and they’re already asking for the next thing, usually something sweet and sugary! I try very hard to make sure that my children eat healthy snacks at home and yet when we are out and about and it’s a matter of convenience, a packet of crisps or a sugary cereal bar seems like the easiest option.

So when Ella’s Kitchen announced their new toddler snack range, aimed at children 12 months and over, we were all very excited to try them! The snacks are all totally organic with no added refined sugar or salt, no concentrates, additives or colourings, and the range includes –

  • Parsnip & poppyseed savoury biscuits
  • Carrot & Lentil crunchy sticks
  • Cheese & Leek crunchy wheels
  • Raisin & Oat cookies
  • Banana & Raisin oaty fingers
  • Strawberry & Apple oaty fingers

I was interested to learn that Ella’s Kitchen have recently collaborated with selected Odeon Cinema’s to allow film goers to sample their new range. Unfortunately none of our local cinemas were taking part in this event, yet the lovely people at Ella’s Kitchen were kind enough to send us some samples of our own. And given the fact that there are no better testers than my little snackers, a day out to Formby was a great opportunity to try them this weekend.

Whilst Eva and her sweet tooth were all about the cookies, Megan couldn’t wait to try the crunchie wheels.

I tried one of each and unlike other toddler snacks I have tried previously, I could easily have finished the whole bag!

Harry loved the banana and raisin oaty fingers, and given that he is just about the fussiest three year old I have ever met, that speaks volumes!

The snacks were a huge success with the children, and we will definitely be taking more of them on our days out. With the snacks coming in multi packs as well as single packets, they are perfect for my little ones.

    My little sister loves Ella’s Kitchen, as she is very particular about what she eats and they are the perfect bite size snacks. The crunchy wheels sounds like something that she would like! x

      I love that the children are happy to switch up a cereal bar for one of these organic bars, or a packet of crisps for a healthier alternative. I worry a lot about their diet so this new range makes me happy! xx

    I’ve never heard of this brand before but it looks great for kids. Going to show my Sister this post for her little ones..

      They are really good! I’ve tried toddler snacks before and wondered how my children can even stomach them, but I ate a full bag of these last night! xx

    Never heard of this brand but it sounds good! I have twins too so hope they will like it haha

      Its a fab range isn’t it? I loved them when mine were babies, so handy for taking out with us and totally organic, so no mummy guilt!! xx

  7. June 13, 2017 / 1:54 pm

    We loved Ella’s kitchen when the girls were babies, how did I not know they did a toddler range? These would be perfect for my girls, they are always hungry and it’s hard to come up with snacks all the time, especially when you are out and about. x

    • Laura Dove
      June 13, 2017 / 6:52 pm

      I think they are a new range, mine loved the baby food range too. Snacks are difficult on days out unless you’ve planned in advance, which I never have! It’s way easier to throw in a multipack of these snacks! The kids loved them! xx

      June 14, 2017 / 4:25 pm

      They would make great snacks for packed lunches, I know our school says no crisps or chocolate biscuits but these are totally allowed! xx

  12. June 13, 2017 / 9:51 pm

    Yes I know what you mean. I was at that phase as well. Your kids are adorable btw and I loved reading about them!

    I’m not familiar with the brand, it might not be available here in the Philippines. They sound so healthy though. The savory vegetable biscuits and sticks sound scrumptious though.

    The banana and raisin fingers sound yummy! So great that there is a brand out there that makes these healthy snacks, saves so much time when you just don’t have a spare minute to bake or prepare snacks when you’re on the go!

    • Laura Dove
      June 14, 2017 / 4:23 pm

      Yes I think the convenience of them is one of the things I love the most. It’s great that we can grab healthy snacks! xx

    Yep my kids are always hungry too! Zach now points to the biscuit barrel and shouts at me to get him something. I haven’t tried any of Ella’s new range but will look out for them at the supermarket

    They do look like snacks that toddlers would enjoy. I am happy they are organic snacks so I won’t be worried about kids having too much of it. The cheese and leeks crunchy wheels sound delicious to me!

    • Laura Dove
      June 15, 2017 / 1:09 pm

      They are lovely! I usually think toddler snacks are so bland but I liked the crunchy wheels! xx

  23. June 15, 2017 / 7:45 am

    Omg your kids are soooo adorable! Well, my kids are not the only ones always hungry at home but the mom as well. Lol the snacks packaging looks great so I bet it taste good as well. Although I don’t think that brand is already available in our country.

    Sebby loves these snacks – he won’t eat a pack of normal crisps, preferring these instead

    • Laura Dove
      June 16, 2017 / 6:46 pm

      Oh that’s good! They are much healthier choices! xx

  27. June 15, 2017 / 9:04 pm

    These look like such great (and healthy) snacks for kids, with a little something for everyone. Admittedly, I’d follow Eva’s lead with her cookies, while my husband would reach for crunch and salt like Megan. Definitely will look for these at the grocery .. thanks so much for your recommendation!
