My daughter absolutely loves fruit, and we are always on the look out for new fruit snacks and finger foods for her for when we are out and about or as a treat. She loves to have fresh fruit like fingers of Mango, Melon or Pineapple, and loves Strawberries and Bananas but these can be a bit messy for an on the go snack and this is where snacks like the Smoothie Melts are just perfect as you can just pop a bag in your handbag and they are pretty much mess free.
~What they are~
Kiddylicious Smoothie Melts are small bite sized pieces of freeze dried fruit which melt on the tongue and are suitable from 12 months. They are a 100% fruit and count as 1 of baby's 5 a day. They come in three flavours; Strawberry & Banana, Banana, Mango & Passion fruit and Blackcurrant & Apple.
They are a lovely snack for little ones and are far less messy than most snacks my daughter has which makes them ideal when you are out and about. The Kiddylicious website also suggests that they can be used as toppings for cakes but we have not tried this as they never last long enough in our house!
They look like small squares or chips with an almost honeycomb like appearance and are quite hard to the touch.
The Smoothie Melts are really yummy and so moreish. They have a lovely full flavour and you can detect the individual fruits. Whilst they have a strong flavour they are not overpowering and are really refreshing, tasting more like a sweet than the healthy snack that they are. My daughter loves fruit and would much prefer to have these over chocolate buttons and I have to say I agree. We have tried all three flavours and they are all yummy.
~Price & Availability~
Kiddylicious Smoothie Melts are widely available in supermarkets, chemists and online and cost 59p per 6g pack.
My daughter absolutely loves the Kiddylicious Smoothie Melts, her face lights up when she sees the packet and she never thinks I open it up quick enough. I can see why, they really are yummy and full of flavour and I can never resist stealing a couple although I would really rather like a packet to myself! Whilst these are aimed at children from 12 months they really are a tasty snack for all ages. Highly recommend for little kids and big kids alike.
