Anyone who truly knows me will be aware that I am a massive cheese fan, and one of my regular quotes is that life isn't worth living without cheese -I'm sure many of you will agree! Cheese is one of those foodstuffs that people love but try to avoid due to the calorie content, which is a shame as it's just so delicious!! I think I had tried Babybel when I was younger, and wasn't too impressed at the time, as it is a processed cheese and I was more partial to a fine Cheddar or Double Gloucester, so I never really revisited it...until recently! My fitness-freak work colleague / slash / personal nutritional advisor (who I usually listen to unless I've been ... Read the complete review

There's two things about myself and food that I am very aware of. Firstly I love sweet foods - chocolate, cakes, cream, pick n mix are not allowed in the house as they will not survive! The other is that although I also love cheese I do have far greater self control with it and can last for days without a nibble. Mini Babybel Light is a product I came across when buying the standard version one day as I normally buy the 'lighter choice' of things like dairy and meats, and is perfect for several reasons: Firstly it comes in individual portions wrapped in wax and cellophane. I love products that have been individually portioned like this as I can get ... Read the complete review

I quite often like a cheese snack and I normally opt for a block of plain cheddar cheese to satisfy my cravings, or thick slices of cheddar on my sandwich with coleslaw! However sometimes the only thing that will do, is a baby bel! One I've tried recently is the babybel Light! They are sold in all supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco and can be found in the dairy aisle alongside the likes of cheese strings, lunchables and dairy lea dunkers! They also come in different sized packets with different quantities. This is a plus side. You can get them in bags of 12 or in bags of 6. We usually buy the 12 pack though! The pack of 6 costs £1.58 and the 12 pack costs ... Read the complete review

I must admit that mini Babybel lights are a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. I became a fan when I was following the Slimming World diet, and thought I would try these as you could have 3 of these little cheeses as one of your healthy options. As a cheese addict, this seemed like a lot of cheese for my precious calories!! Okay so my love of Babybel has lasted far longer than the diet did, but since then they are a staple for my fridge!! Like original Babybel, they are mini cheese encased in red wax, made by Fromageries Bel in France. They are 100% natural cheese, and have a mild creamy flavour. They are not on par with a chunk of mature cheddar, and are ... Read the complete review

My daughter has never really been a huge fan of yoghurts, well not for the last few years anyway, so when I make her school packed lunchbox up I do struggle as what to give her. I of course want a healthy and varied selection of food, though she is a much better eater than my younger son, meaning I can get some well needed nutrients into her through her dinner at home. As she eats her sandwiches she is insistent on crisps to accompany, with the obligatory drink and a bit of something sweet for "pudding", this left me with a small gap to fill, hence the review that follows. The product I will now review is - "Mini babybel ... Read the complete review
