Organix have introduced Veg and Oat bars to their Goodies Savouries range, an innovative and tasty savoury snack to keep toddlers going between meals.
Isabelle loves her food in any shape or form as you may know from my previous posts. We are always careful what we give her and avoid sugary foods and foods packed with nasties. The majority of her meals are home cooked so when it comes to snacks we like to make sure that she still gets as much goodness from her food as we can. Usually we provide her with snacks of fruit and vegetables which aren’t really handy when we are out and about so this is where the toddler snacks come into play. Finding snacks that are nutritional as well as enjoyable is a priority for us so when we were offered the Organix Goodies Organic Veg and Oat Bars to review, we were very willing to put them to the test.
We were sent the Tomato and Carrot Veg and Oat Bars which are made with dried tomato and carrot juice with the goodness of wholegrain oats.
Each box comes with the no Junk promise so I know there are no hidden nasties, as well as this there is a full list of ingredients listed on the box so you know exactly what they contain. As well as that all ingredients are organic with no added sugar, salt, artificial additives or colours and are also suitable for vegetarians.
Gently baked they are soft so easy for your child to eat, Isabelle had no struggle demolishing hers, they are a welcome alternative to sweet flavours. The bars are suitable for ages 12 months +
Each box contains 6 25g bars so enough to last the week which makes them perfect to pop in the lunchbox or even for trips out. Great for us as I always like to make sure that we have a couple of snacks in Isabelle’s changing bag, when she is hungry she can sure let you know about it.
So here’s what they contain
Organic Wholegrain Oats 55%
Organic Barley Malt Extract 16%
Organic Sunflower Oil 15%
Organic Carrot Juice Concentrate 9%
Organic Tomato Powder 3%
Organic Dried Tomato Flakes 2%
Frankie Philips, Nutritional Advisor to Organix, says, “Wholegrain snacks can give your child energy and as they release energy slowly your little one will have staying power, to keep them going between meals”.
When they arrived I noticed that like other Organix Goodies products the packaging is very eye-catching and would certainly be attractive for a child. Isabelle was very interested and spent a good few minutes running around with the box before I could wrestle them off of her.
The bars are individually wrapped which means I can take them out and about without any fuss or a need for extra containers. They are the perfect size for a snack, not overly filling but enough to keep Isabelle going until her next meal.
So did Isabelle enjoy them?
Even though they lack certain sweetness I knew that this would not be an issue for Isabelle as she certainly has no preference over sweet or savoury. In record time Isabelle devoured the first Veg and Oat bar with no qualms then continued to have one every day until the box was finally empty.
They have been such a hit that we have continued to purchase them and other products from the Organix Goodies range. I am looking forward to see if they will introduce new flavours to the Veg and Oat Bars range and possibly some varieties available in a fruit version.
Organix Goodies Veg and Oat Bars can be purchased from most supermarkets and Boots with an RRP of £2.49
