I have long been a fan of Little Dish products. When I decided to start advertising on the blog, Little Dish was an obvious brand for me to reach out to. The following is a post sponsored by Little Dish, but all the opinions are mine. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Hungermama!
While I generally shy away from bland “kid food”, I love that Little Dish makes an effort to introduce bold flavours into their snacks. I also appreciate that Little Dish also makes sure that their snacks are full of good things for kids. Their new nutritionist approved Pop Pops (Arrested Development, anyone?) are made of chickpeas which makes them a good source of protein and fibre.
Pop Pops are also low in salt and saturated fat (especially when compared to other crisps!) and they contain no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. That being said, their healthiness doesn’t affect the flavour at all. I’ve been known to steal a bag of these for myself! (I especially like the original flavour, which is a low-salt version of salt and vinegar!)
We don’t normally keep many snacks around the house as I prefer to give the kids whole fruits, or nuts, but we have really enjoyed having Pop Pops around. They come in little bags that have a fun animal sticker to use for resealing the bag (though my kids have never not finished a bag and so just put the stickers on their shirts!).
We have also enjoyed sharing Pop Pops with friends. Often during playdates I worry that our healthy food options are a bore for my kids’ friends. While my kids will happily eat cucumber and carrot as a snack, not all kids are as keen. Having some bags of Pop Pops in the cupboard give us a fun, healthy option that the kids love and I don’t feel guilty about.
Little Dish Chickpea Pop Pops are sold in the Baby Aisle in Sainsburys and Tesco. Be sure to check out their Go Gos while you’re there. We love them as well!
