“ Brand: Organix / Age: 12 months „
My children are 6 and 2 and they both love these!
They have both had them since they were around a year old, they say on the packet suitable from 12 months.
They come in 15g bags, I normally buy a pack of 4 bags form waitrose for £1.89, the organix range of snacks are a bit more expensive than other snacks but I do prefer them as they are not full of salt and sugar like a lot of snacks are.
These stars are flavoured with tomato, onion, garlic, carrot, paprika and chilli, they are called 'spicy stars' but my children dont really find them spicy, they are very mild.
They are free from artificial colours and flavours,and like all the organix products have the 'no junk' promise. I think they are a good choice of snack for young children, they are handy to pop in your bag when out and about and my son also sometimes takes them in his packed lunch for school.
We love these!
Along with the fatter version of the Carrot Six these are our favourite of the Organix range. They're tasty - tastier than the average 'baby snack' with just a tiny spicy kick to them -and with the 'no junk promise' I feel much better about sharing these with my wee one than I would about some of the more sugary and salty snacks available on the market.
We did 'baby led weaning' and my daughter's managed these quite easily from 6 months. They fit easily into a changing bag and are useful for producing on journeys, shopping trips, at snack time or any time a distraction's needed quickly (for this last they don't even need to be opened - she likes to 'help' carry them!).
We decided early on not to make our daughter eat anything we wouldn't want to and this range has contributed greatly to that. The foods are flavoursome rather than bland, have great textures which set up baby for a world of enjoying their food and are convenient without compromising on the 'no junk promise.
Reasonably priced, we find these a valuable addition to our store cupboard and changing bag!
My little grandson does not eat many sweets and cakes, only when at the weekend usually as a nice little treat and when he comes to visit he is always looking around to see if grandma has any treats for him, and as it is at the weekend when he usually arrives he is hunting for his weekly treat.
I sometimes take care of him during the week for a couple of hours and always like to give him something to munch and I saw this little snack from Tesco and now I buy them all the time for him to eat.
For a 15g packet they are priced at around 49p for 1 but they are usually on offer at 3 for £1, and so it makes sense to buy 3 and save money.
They come in a plastic bag, and inside they are about an inch sized baked corn snack, which have no added flavourings, reduced fat and salt which is a very healthy snack for a young child, the ones I usually buy are shaped into little stars with a hole in the middle, they are light and easily melt for the child to eat.
They are supposed to be spicy but they are a nice mild flavour and not too spicy at all, and they are coated with tomato, carrot and spices, they have vegetable ingredients and with no hidden junk food at all.
The salt and fat levels are at least a 3rd less than most children's snacks which is excellent for a healthy choice of food.
There are around 15 in each pack and my grandson does not eat the full packet usually and so I just place them in a plastic container and give him a few for when he is hungry and they stay nice and fresh for his next visit.
They are ideal for school lunch boxes and picnics and are small enough to place into their boxes or bags for school and my daughter buys them and just pops them into her baby bag and they are there for when she needs them.
They are a lovely healthy snack for any young baby or child and excellent value for money and they are designed for 12 months plus.
I do recommend these for anyone to try and see if your child or family member loves them too.
I give it 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
I came across the Organix range when I was looking for something for my daughter to munch on when we went out for lunch. I knew that by putting her in a highchair it would make her think she was getting food and didn't want to feed her unhealthy food like chips off of my plate and she was far too young to order her a meal of her own.
I headed straight for the baby aisle in my local supermarket and was confronted by a vast variety of healthy snacks and finger foods for babies. My eyes were immediately drawn to the 'Organix Goodies' range due to the brightness of their packaging. The crisps come in 15g foil bags so are kept nice and fresh and are great for lunchboxes when children get a bit older. I particularly liked this range due to their 'No Junk Promise', which is to use less salt and fat (at least a third less than found in most children's snacks), to use no MSG (monosodium glutamate) or added flavouring and to ensure their food is organic.
I started off giving her the carrot stick variety which are nice and chunky for little hands to hold easily. She is now 9 months old and has moved onto the spicy tomato stars, although they have an age guide of 12 months she is very established with her feeding, she never eats unattended and they melt in the mouth so easily that there is really no risk of choking. It is very important to me that she tries a variety of tastes and textures whilst still young and doesn't grow up only wanting to eat bland food, the organix range is a great way to accomplish this in a fun way for children.
The ingredients in the spicy tomato stars are:
Organic Corn 74%
Organic Sunflower Oil 14%
Organic Tomato Powder 4%
Organic Carrot Powder 4%
Organic Onion Powder 2%
Sea Salt 1%(less than)
Organic Garlic Powder 1%(less than)
Organic Paprika Powder 1%(less than)
Organic Chillie Powder 1%(less than)
These baked corn snacks are lightly covered with the above organic spices only so you know only the best is going in to child. They are wheat free, gluten free and are suitable for vegetarians. The crisps are a great way to introduce new and exciting flavours to babies and as children get older they are an excellent for when they want crisps and you don't want to fill them with fats and salts.
They retail at 58p a bag which is excellent value for money, especially for babies as they only eat a few at each sitting, or you can buy a multipack which contains 4 15g bags for £1.58. I keep mine in an air tight container which I take around with me for when my daughter gets a bit peckish. I would recommend these crisps to anyone and can't wait to try the other foods that Organix offer.
Tomato, carrot & spices.
