“ Type: Yoghurts „
When it comes to feeding my Son Jayden I am lucky in that he will eat pretty much anything whether its a meat based meal or something vegetarian, one thing he really enjoys as a desert or as part of his lunch is fromage frais, he's not fussy on what flavour he has so I will often buy different brands and flavours so he does not get board of the same thing. One brand I recently bought for him to try was Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais, he has not tried this brand before and as they were on offer I decided to give them a try. Packaging The Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais come in small white plastic pots with a foil lid on the top of each one which has part of a larger picture on it, the packaging for each individual fromage frais is quite plain, the majority of the information appears on the outer packaging. All of the fromage frais pots are attached to each other and come wrapped in a card sleeve, the top of this sleeve has the Muller logo on it and the name Little Stars written just underneath with a few facts written down the side of the sleeve, the majority of this is taken up with a picture of snails made out of different fruits, this information and the same pictures also appear on the sides of the sleeves as well. The bottom of the sleeve contains all of the product information including nutritional information, ingredients, allergy advise and storage guide, this is all clearly written and laid out. The Fromage Frais Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais are designed with little people in mind, they are ideal for the weaning process and onwards as part of a balanced diet, and are made from 100% naturally sourced ingredients. The fromage frais are plain white in colour and of a reasonably thick consistency, in the packet I purchased the flavours were strawberry and peach, the fromage frais are totally smooth with no fruit pieces in them at all, although they are made with fruit puree. Each pot contains 45g of fromage frais and is one portion for your child. Allergy Advise This also appears on the back of the packaging and states that these fromage frais are suitable for vegetarians and coeliacs but they are not suitable for those who are lactose intolerant as they do contain milk. This information is clearly printed on the back of the packaging so you can check this before giving them to your child. Price and Availability You can buy these fromage frais from a variety of supermarkets, I purchased mine from our local Tesco. A pack of 18 of these fromage frais is sold for between £2.00 and £2.50 depending on where you purchase them from. Personally I think these are good value for money and definitely worth the money. My Opinion When I purchased Jayden the Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais I was sure he would like them as he loves anything like this and I was right. I tried a little bit of them myself and the fruity flavour was strong enough without being over powering for children, the fromage frais had a lovely creamy taste to it and was just sweet enough and not sickly at all. I like the fact that these are made with natural ingredients and fruit puree as it means I can give them to Jayden as part of a healthy diet, they are reasonably priced and in our Tesco are often on offer. The portion sizes are good and are just the right size for children, I will often give Jayden one of these as either desert or part of his lunch and the amount is just right for him. I would definitely recommend Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais to anyone looking for a tasty snack for their child.
Muller is one off the top brands of yoghurts you can purchase from your supermarket. They do a huge range of different yoghurts and jellies for all ages. My daughter is a huge fan of the Muller fromage frais. Being 100% natural ingredients gives the pleasure to know that I am giving my child the best I can. Not only are they good for when it comes to weaning your child, they are also great for toddlers as a mid day snack or dessert. They are also great as your child grows up to pop in their lunch box. Pots contain 50 grams of fromage frais which is just enough to make you little one happy. They come in 3 flavours, Strawberry, peach and raspberry. Each pot contains 12% of your child's recommended daily allowance. My daughter always manages to finish a whole pot so they must be very tasty and enjoyable. You can purchase these's from your local supermarket. They come in packs of 6 and packs of 18. The price can varies depending on where you purchase from. The average price for a 6 pack is £1.52 or in our local Sainsbury's they are on offer at 2 x 6 packs for £2.50. These seem to be on offer most of the time when I go to purchase them. We have tried cheaper versions of the fromage frais but nothing can compare to how happy my child is when she's eating these. They are much more full of flavour and satisfying.
~~DESCRIPTION~~ Little Stars fromage frais come in packs of 6 or 18. Their flavours are peach, strawberry, and raspberry. The ingredients are stated as 100% natural and ideal for weaning. The pots have a fairly wide opening making it easy for little hands to self-feed. The six-packs are on offer at Tesco 2 for £2.50, Asda 3 for £3.00, and Sainsbury 2 for £2.50. ~~PROMOTION~~ Muller are currently doing a 'Peppa Pig' promotion on their packs - you need to collect four book tokens (you get two per large pack and one per small pack) and you can get a free Peppa Pig book worth £3.99. See littlestarspeppapig.co.uk for further information. ~~WHY THIS BRAND?~~ My son at about six months of age, promptly turned his nose up at every bottle of formula barring the morning and night feed. After reading some advice from other mothers on a parenting forum, I decided to boost his calcium intake with soft cheeses and other dairy products rather than fighting a losing battle with the bottle. My son being such a young age, I decided to opt for a variety without any artificial additives - Muller recommend these as an ideal weaning food, so that is what I placed in the trolley. I feel I am giving him the best start with these. I would like to see more flavours available. A 60g pot provides 12% of the RDA of calcium and they are also suitable for vegetarians. ~~WHAT ARE THEY LIKE?~~ In comparison with other fromage frais, they are marginally runnier - this is an insignificant detail as it still stays on the spoon perfectly well. They are pale pastel colours (pink, peach, lilac accordingly). They taste not too sweet or overpowering which is ideal for a young palate. When feeding them to my son, it is clear that he loves their flavours - it is hard to keep up with the pace he wants to be fed at! 60 grams is a good size, he always appears satisfied after one whether as a mid-morning snack or as a pudding after a main meal. I can see these being a staple fridge item for many years to come... Thank you Muller!
Why this product ********************* We have being having little stars fromage frais in our fridge now for well over a year now since we started weaning our young son at 6 months old. They have been a firm favourite of his since then. We decided to try the Little Stars range first because I was influenced I have to admit by their claim of 100% natural ingredients. This meant when I compared the ingredients on these fromage frais to cheaper alternatives I was able to recognise most ingredients and there were no artificial additives flavorings or preservatives in it. The natural flavorings on the ingredient list I checked out and this means that flavouring are extracted from fruits, vegetables and spices which I personally felt reassured by. What are they? ******************* These are sold in a 6 pack plastic pot tray. The packaging also includes an outer cardboard sleeve with a Little Stars logo and packaging on it. They are currently running a promotion for Peppa Pig books so Peppa Pig is blazoned across the front too. In each pack you have 2 pots of each of the three flavours which are Peach, Strawberry and Raspberry. The pots contain 60 grams of Fromage frais. As these are fromage frais and aimed at being used from the initial weaning stage at between 4-6 months they are a smooth fromage frais with no bits in them The eating *********** Since the early days my son has loved these and has not really had a particular favourite flavour. As these are made from whole milk and not full of sweeteners they have a very natural creamy taste to them. I can notice the difference between these fromage frais and the low fat variety I buy on occasions for myself. The texture and taste are just smoother and creamier. It's the same sort of taste difference between full fat milk and semi skimmed in some ways. The strength of the flavour is not strong hence why he probably took to these in the early days as they taste very milky. The strongest flavour and in my opinion is the raspberry and it does have a slight raspberry sharpness to it but no where near the strength that you would get in an adult yoghurt's. The only flavour that has any real colour to it is the strawberry the others I would describe as cream with a hint of peach or raspberry really. Smell wise again they are very neutral and hence I guess the appeal for first stages of weaning. Now that my little one is a toddler he loves having his own pot to hold and spoon out himself. We also use these pots as a sweet dip for him and he loves dipping blueberries strawberries and other small fruit pieces into the yoghurt. Occasionally he will also dip bread-sticks into the pots too and seems to enjoy the combination of sweet and savoury flavours. As with all of these yoghurt's there is a high sugar content. This for me isn't a problem as I have a very active toddler and I would rather he have the sugar from these than chocolate for example as least the fromage Frais is also giving him yoghurt and calcium too. But we did limit these to 1-2 pots a day when he was a baby as he wasn't really burning the energy off then. The pots of course at times are now coming in handy for art projects such as sculpture and are very handy for decanting paint into. Ingredients *************** Peach Ingredients: Fromage Frais, Water, Sugar, Peach Puree (6%), Corn Starch, Natural Flavorings. Strawberry Ingredients: Fromage Frais, Water, Sugar, Strawberry Puree (6%), Corn Starch, Natural Flavoring, Beetroot Juice Concentrate. Raspberry Ingredients: Fromage Frais, Water, Sugar, Raspberry Puree (6%), Corn Starch, Natural Flavoring. Where from ************ These are available from most supermarkets and seemed to be frequently on offer. At present I have seen them on offer in Sainsbury's 2 packs for £2.50. Overall ************* I would definitely recommend these fromage frais to families with young children. They are great for both babies and toddlers in moderation due to the sugar content. The Little Stars range also includes Yoghurt and Jelly.
When my first son was wearning, I needed to find something that was easy to eat, not full of junk and tasted great, but still gave him the nutrition he needed at that very sensitive age. So I reached for a Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais. These come in handy 6 packs, with 2 each of 3 different flavours - strawberry, raspberry and peach. The box is bright and colourful which attracts you while walking down the yoghurt aisle in the supermarket, and it boasts "100% natural ingredients" signs on the front. It also states that the fromage frais pots are ideal from weaning and onwards. The ingredients are simple - they amount to 6 and these include fruit puree but no artificial ingredients of any kind. When I first gave these to my son he loved them and soon was eating up to 3 or 4 of these a day, on top of normal meals and milk! So when my younger son came along it seemed natural to use the same fantastically smooth and well flavoured deserts. They help provide a child with the essential calcium that they need to ensure strong bones and teeth, and the best thing is that a child thinks they are getting a treat. At 3 and a half my son still asks for his Little Stars and I will use them for years to come. The only downside to these is the cost of them - with the number my children get through they add quite a bit to my shopping bill but they are worth it.
My little sister is 2 and she's recently had the Noro Virus that she picked up at playgroup we think, we were lucky really because the only one she passed it onto was my dad and he only got it mild for a couple of days. She has only just started eating again after 2 weeks and the doc recommended we keep her off dairy products for a week apart from her bottles of milk, he thinks the dairy products might be what are making her be sick even though the virus has gone. I reckon he's right because we've had her off her yogurts and stuff for 3 days now and already her stomach is a lot stronger. The problem is that 10 minutes before the doc said this my mum had brought 2 packs of 12 Little Stars Fromage Frais because she's saving the tokens for the Peppa Pig books. I'm not mad keen on yogurts but had some last night to help use them up and they're proper nice, loads better than the yogurts for adults! They're made for toddlers so are tiny, I had 3 because I thought that would make one proper sized pot! The fromage frais are split into 3 flavours and they are peach, raspberry and strawberry. I had one of each and they were all yummy and tasted nice of the fruit they were supposed to be. Because it's fromage frais and not yogurt they are very thick and suprisingly filling. They are lovely and sweet and taste very natural, Muller have made these from all natural ingredients and they do taste like they haven't been messed about with much even though they are proper tasty. The strawberry and raspberry ones taste very similar to each other except the raspberry flavour is a bit more tangy, this is only faint though because of these fromage frais being made for little kids who won't like flavours that are too strong. I love the sweet strawberry one the best because it tastes of a mix of fresh strawberrys and strawberry sweets. I'm not mad keen on the peach one but that's only because peach isn't my fave flavour anyway. It's still nice and sweet and I think it tastes more of a proper fresh peach than a fake flavour. A few weeks ago my mum brought some of the Tesco Value little pots of fromage frais and I remember saying how nice they were, but these ones from Muller are a million times better and show the cheapo ones up for the naff food they are! They're quite dear for such little pots of fromage frais, the 6 packs are about £1.50 and this pack of 12 was well over £2.50. I can see why we get these for my sister though because they taste better quality than any of the other baby fromage frais and are deffo tastier than any I've sampled since my sister was born.
As baby weaning began to get boring for both my baby and I, it was high time I seached out some fromage frais as the next step to try. In the elimination process I discovered there are several brands on the market, aimed specifically at children, but I went for Muller Little Stars as they have a simple list of ingredients. In fact they only have six ingredients, compared to other leading brands which have much more. This was important as I feel that pre-prepared baby food is far too reliant on additives these days. So I got these home and its fair to say my baby loved them. They come in nice size pots that are just about right, and my baby eats a full one so theres no waste. Shes happy to have them on their own, but also adores them with muesli and chopped fruit, so they can be a good base for an easy yet nutritious breakfast or snack. They come in a pack of six with two of each flavour which is perfect for babies and young children. Muller Little Stars also do a fruit juice jelly version which is also a huge hit with my daughter.
When on one of my frequently recurring lunchtime binges I spotted these Muller Little Star Fromage Frais on special off (buy one get one free) and decided that 12 fromage frais for just £1.68 was a great price and promptly brought myself some. The cardboard outer sleeve is different to the one in the picture here on Dooyoo, it has a snail instead of a hedgehog or whatever that is and I believe the packaging pictured is actually for the Little Stars Smooth Yoghurts instead. The sleeve only serves the purpose of keeping the 6 yoghurts together and displaying all the usual (barcode, nutritional information, ingredients etc). There are 6 yoghurts within the cardboard sleeve and there are 2 raspberry, 2 strawberry & 2 peach flavoured fromage frais. Each of them is fromage frais with fruit puree from concentrate (around 5% on average) and the yoghurts are completely smooth with no lumps (well, none that I could detect anyway and I'm fussy!). Each of the yoghurts are basically the same and it's the fruit puree from concentrate which makes each of them different. These are not the nicest fromage frais I've ever had as they don't have the sweet taste that I'm used to but that makes these ideal for little ones as there is nothing naughty added and no naughty artificial ingredients either. Also, they are free from nuts, preservatives & they are suitable for coeliacs & vegetarians too so most people should be able to eat these if they so choose! I did notice when reading the ingredients (reviewing purposes of course!) that two of them contain concentrate from beetroot & carrot so take care if this is something your little one needs to avoid as I'd never expect to find that within a yoghurt. The yoghurts have a nice smooth texture to them and I did eat one but I found that I put back the other one I'd got out as I just didn't get grabbed by these yoghurts (none of the flavours to be honest) so I ended up just having one at a time which isn't really a bad thing to be honest. The yoghurt pots have some shape to them where the pot kind of gets smaller and smaller towards the bottom so a small spoon is definitely required with these to avoid leaving yoghurt in the pot (I just can't stand doing that no matter how small the amount!). Each 60g yoghurt contains 2.4g of fat and 65 calories so while this isn't too bad they should still be enjoyed in moderation due to the fat content which I believe naturally occurs in the fromage frais. I am going to rate these 5/5 as although I didn't find them quite as sweet as I would like I believe the taste and the texture would be a huge hit with the little ones in the family and it's great to know that there is no artificial rubbish going in to this yoghurt. I'm sure kids will love these and although you can buy value/smartprice/basic fromage frais a lot cheaper than 6 of these (even when these are on buy one get one free) I would still recommend these as they have no junk in them.
After the initial baby rice stage of weaning, I decided to purchase some fromage frais for my baby to try. In the beginning I bought Petit Filous, but on seeing the Muller Little Stars adverts on television frequently I decided to give these a go instead. As stated in the adverts, Muller Little Stars fromage frais only have 6 ingredients in them compared to the much longer ingredients list of their closest rivals and this was a massive selling point for me. It also helped that there was a promotion with the Early Learning Centre (ELC) at the time meaning that there was a chance to win prizes and also a 20% off at the ELC with each pack... Despite the Little Stars pots looking larger, I was surprised to see that each pot is 60g in size with 6 in a standard pack - surprising as the shape of the pot makes the portion look more substantial than a pot of Petit Filous which is the same size serving. Each 6 pack of Little Stars contains 3 flavours - Raspberry, Strawberry and Peach, with 2 pots of each flavour. Each pot of fromage frais is delicious with the peach one being my particular favourite - my little girl gobbles each pot with equal enthusiasm, so I guess that she loves them all! All 3 flavours have a delicious aroma and a nice smooth texture which is so easy and enjoyable to eat that the pot is gone before you realise it! There is nothing artificial about this product and I find it to be honest and reliable. It tastes exactly as it should without a load of nasties added to the ingredients list to make it taste artificial or overly sweet. There is no horrible aftertaste to the product either and I find it a refreshing alternative to yoghurt. The ingredients for each flavour are clearly marked and there is nothing in there that shouldn't be, which is great when they are marketed as being 'ideal from weaning and onwards'. As the pack says, this fromage frais includes '100% natural ingredients' and unlike many other claims made by companies, this one is totally believable. I like the fact that each pack contains 3 flavours, unlike Petit Filous which (unless you buy the huge packs) only give a selection of 2 flavours per 6 pots. The 3 flavours give a nice variety to the pack, although as mentioned above, they are all so nice that I wouldn't mind at all if they did a 6 pack of peach! I will continue to buy these for my daughter as they make a nice dessert for her and help to get added calcium into her diet. They also make a great food for her when she is teething, as they help to numb her sore gums a little and are easy to eat. As a parent, I love the fact that these are a quick, but healthy dessert from the famous Muller brand. They are easy to find, as most supermarkets stock them and they are also generally on offer making them cost effective too! You can currently buy a pack of 6 of these for £1.48 on www.Asda.com or 3 packs of 6 for £3.00. Strawberry Fromage Frais ingredients: Fromage Frais, Water, Sugar, Strawberry Puree, Corn Flour, Natural Flavourings, Beetroot Juice Concentrate Raspberry Fromage Frais ingredients: Fromage Frais, Water, Sugar, Raspberry Puree, Corn Flour, Natural Flavourings, Carrot Juice Concentrate Peach Fromage Frais ingredients: Fromage Frais, Water, Sugar, Peach Puree, Corn Flour, Natural Flavourings.
Both my children have loved yoghurt and it was one of the first solid foods that they tried at around 6 months and it continues to be one of their favourite deserts. Although most of the time I try and give them natural yoghurt with fresh fruit this isn't all that pratical when we're out and about or for my daughters packed lunch at playgroup. Therefore I began to look at the kids yoghurt section in the supermarket. I wasn't all that impressed with what I found most of the seemed to quite gimicky or full of ingredients that I didn't recognise. The Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais stood out for me as on the packaging I noticed "100% Natural Ingredients" in bold type. This was a big positive for me and when I looked at the list of ingredients I was pleasantly suprised that there were only a handful and I actually recognised them all and they contained no artificial flavourings, colour or preservatives....so in the trolley they went! The Little Stars Fromage Frais come in a pack of 6 little 60g pots, they are shaped like regular yoghurt pot but just scaled down for little tummies. The pack has 3 flavour varieties - strawberry, raspberry and peach. The froamge frais is smooth in texture and contains no lumps which a lot of young children seem to dislike. Tastewise, these get a full on thumbs up from both my little girls and they always clean up those little pots and the spoon goes round and round until every little bit has been polished off. I have to admit that I also think they taste pretty good... not that I get much of a chance, I get told off if I even lick the lid. The cost of a pack of 6 Muller Little Stars Fromage Frais is about £1.59 which is a little steep however they are often on offer for 2 packs for £2.50 and that is when I tend to stock up. In conclusion these are a really handy and tasty treat to keep in the fridge and you can relax in the knowledge that they are not full of rubbish.
I normally eat Muller Fruit corner and when I picked up a six pack of mixed variety from Tescos there was a voucher in there for a free pack of Muller LittIe Stars. Obviously I was pleased- free dinky yoghurts? Why not! ***Ingredients*** Little Stars claims to be made up of 100% natural ingredients and there are no artificial additives. With some children's yoghurts Vitamin D is added but Muller have kept this product as natural as possible. The amounts of calcium in these is naturally occurring and not added in which is great for children and adults alike (personally I hate false, manufactured ingredients). There are also absolutely no E numbers making this product very safe. ***Taste*** I found that Little Stars fromage frais tastes great! It was creamy and smooth - fromage frais tends to be more like this in comparison to yoghurt which is far less creamy. All of the flavours were really nice and each one was creamy and delicious with the fromage frais melting in your mouth. The flavours were strong enough to tell what they were but not overpowering and although the pots are small they hit the sweet cravings because of the creamyness. (If you've never had fromage frais just imagine whipped cream with flavour.) Strawberry is always my favourite usually for yoghurts but here I liked them all. ***Packaging*** Come in packs of 6 attached plastic tubs. On the outside there is a cardboard cover with cute pictures and text. It states on the packaging that these are 'ideal for weaning and onwards' and due to the natural ingredients for small children these are ideal. They come in 2 Strawberry, 2 Raspberry and 2 Peach. They come in a pack of 6 (60g per pot). The pots are small but ideal for kids (two for adults maybe!) ***Cost*** £1.58 in Tesco which is where I picked them up from (using a voucher from the Muller Corner packs (6 packs) which made these free! I could also have bought the Little Stars Yoghurt or Jellies. **Would I buy these again?*** Definitely. They were delicious and I wouldn't mind paying for them as they make a perfect snack or lunchbox treat. If you like yoghurt in general I recommend trying fromage frais and with the natural element and choice of flavours Little Stars is a great choice.
I have to admit that I always wrote these fromage frais yogurts off as 'baby food' since it is always these yogurts that I see friends feeding to their babies/toddlers. Thus, the thought never crossed my mind to put them in my weekly shop. However, having bought some Muller fruit corner yogurts recently for the lunchboxes, I happened to notice inside there was a voucher for a free pack of these miller little stars fromage frais. Never one to miss a freebie, I thought I would take the opportunity to pick these up and decided that even if I didn't eat them, hubby (who will eat just about anything) would. Hubby however, has not even had a chance to try one, because I have already eaten 5 out of the 6 in the packet...they are yum! Now, having bought these solely because they were free, I never even looked at what was in them, until I tried one and loved it. As I already said, these come in a pack of 6 (60g per pot) and are priced at just over £1.50 in Tesco. On the packaging it boasts that these fromage frais are made from 100% natural ingredients, and contain whole milk, and in fact, each pot offers 12% of the RDA of calium, not bad for the size of each tiny pot. The pots are tiny, but are definitely a perfect size for young children, and it suggests on the packaging that these are 'ideal for weaning and onwards'. The lid comes off very easily, and inside the fromage frais is light, creamy and smooth. Anyhow, within the 6 pots, there are 3 different fruity flavours: 2 strawberry, 2 peach and 2 raspberry. I know others might disagree, but I actually quite liked the fact that the none of these flavours were particularly strong, since I tend to avoid strawberry and raspberry flavoured yogurts in general. In this case, I have tried each of the flavours and have enjoyed them all. Another claim of the product is of the few ingredients used. Obviously within each flavour there are differing ingredients, eg: Strawberry: fromage frais, water, sugar, strawberry puree, corn flour, natural flavourings, beetroot juice concentrate (and milk as advertised) Peach: Fromage Frais, Water, Sugar, Peach Puree, Corn Flour, Natural Flavouring (and milk) Raspberry: Fromage Frais, Water Sugar, Raspberry Puree, Corn Flour, Natural Flavourings, Carrot Juice Concentrate (and milk) All in all, I think the ingredient lists support the claim that the product makes of using natural ingredients, which can only be a good thing, no matter what your age. So, to conclude, although this was never a product that I had considered buying before, simply because I do not have any children, I was pleasantly suprised with how creamy and delicious they were and with the fact that they are promoting the use of natural ingredients. I find these a great alternative to raiding the biscuit drawer when I come in from work, and I don't have the accompanying guilt of eating something unhealty. I will definitely buy these again to eat as a snack, but not as a replacement for my usual lunchtime yogurt, and so what if they are aimed at young children or babies, they are too delicious to let only children try them.
When my granddaughter came to visit last weekend I bought her some Müller Little Stars Fromage Frais as she's a real yogurt fiend and all I had in the fridge was Müller Light, which I won't give to her because of the possible link between the added Aspartame and brain tumours. I'll eat it myself as I think the risk for adults is negligible, but babies and children should steer clear in my opinion as their brain is growing and changing so quickly that I wouldn't want to take any chances however small the risk. I came to eat three of these Fromage Frais pots with my lunch as I hadn't noticed that the use by date was actually today and I didn't want to waste them. Luckily for me there was one of each flavour left and they were all absolutely delicious! You buy these in packs of 6, each pot is 60g and they are all joined together like multi packs of yogurts, the snap when breaking one off is very sharp and I absolutely love this sound. My granddaughter will often come running when she hears the snap of these as it usually signals that one of her favourite foods is coming! There are three flavours in a pack which are Strawberry, Raspberry and Peach of which you get two of each. The fromage frais is delicious, it's smooth and creamy with a lovely milky flavour to which the fruit flavourings have been added. The fruit isn't terribly strong, certainly not as full flavoured as my usual Ski or Müller Light yogurts, but you can tell which flavour you're eating without even checking the pot as they all have a very fresh and natural taste. The raspberry one is my favourite as it has a rounded and very natural raspberry flavour, it's nicely sweet but not overly so and has a very slight tartness which is true of fresh raspberries. The strawberry one is good too, an obvious strawberry taste which is sweeter than the raspberry variety and also seems slightly creamier to me. Peach is never one of my favourite flavours, unless we're talking about fresh peaches, but this is also an extremely tasty fromage frais which is sweet and very fruity. It's a shame these pots are so small as I'd buy these for myself if they came in 100g pots, this is because they are especially designed for babies and toddlers so this pot size is ideal for them. The fromage frais are made from 100% natural ingredients which is brilliant and is suitable for babies as soon as you begin the weaning process. A pack of six pots costs £1.58 from Sainsbury's which I think is very good value considering these are high quality desserts and taste so wonderful. If you want to find out more about the Aspartame risks I mentioned earlier in this review please visit http://info.cancerresearchuk.org/news/archive/newsarchive/2006/may/17111803 which gives details. Incidentally, the risk appears extremely low but be aware there is a restriction on how much aspartame can safely be consumed each day.
My children all love yoghurts and have been introduced to them as a weaning food from around 6 months of age. Muller Little Stars are baby/ childrens yoghurts and will be found in the relevant sections of major supermarkets as well as more local stores such as Spar or Co-op. Muller Little Stars are made by Muller Dairy they also make the very popular Muller Corners and Muller light yoghurts as well as a range of other dairy items. ***Muller Little Stars*** Come is packs of 6 attached plastic tubs. On the outside there is a cardboard cover (recyclable) with relevant information on. It is brightly coloured with pictures of flowers and animals on. Each tub of fromage frais is 60g and there are no bits in them, which some children do not enjoy. Flavours include strawberry, raspberry and peach. ***Cost**** These are not the cheapest of the children's yoghurts as they cost around £1.60. But there are often two for one offers or half price offers on at supermarkets, so watch out for those! ***Ingredients*** In these fromais frais there are only SIX ingredients whichare ALL NATURAL. Therefore, there are no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The ingredients (cited from the box) are as follows: fromage frais, water, sugar, fruit puree, corn flour, natural flavourings, juice concentrate. ***Nutritional value*** Fromage frais is a great way to get calcium into your baby or child. Calcium is essential for growing and maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Per pot (cited from the box) there is 65kcal, 2.4g fat, 98mg of calcium with is 12% of the recommended daily amount for a child. ***Suitable for*** Babies who are being weaned onwards. Fromage frais makes an easy, quick and nutritional weaning food. Muller Little Stars are great for taking out with you, putting in lunch boxes and as a healthy desert. ***Taste*** These are some of my children's favourite. I have tried them to and can tell you they are creamy and fruity with just the right amount of sugar. ***Verdict***** Natural wholesome fromage frais product which is loved by adults and children alike! These are great if you have a toddler like mine who will not drink milk, at least if they are eating these fromage frais it is helping them to get their daily calcium!
These come in multi packs of either 6 or 12, they are packed in sets of 6 with 2 peach, 2 strwberry and 2 raspberry. They are 60g pots. The fromage frais is made with a minimum of ingredients to minimise the junk in them making them ideal to give to a baby. These are one of only 2 fromage frais I will give to my daughter as the others I have seen in supermarket seem to have lots of stuff added to them. Not only does my daughter love these though, I find them rather yummy as well. I often pinch one from her and they are lovely and creamy and thick. Fromage frais is good to give to babies as it helps them to get vital calcium, especially if you have a daughter like mine who won't drink a lot of milk, one pot is equvalent to 2oz of normal baby milk in their diet. They are a little more expensive then some other brands, however, I don't think I have ever paid full price for them as they always seem to be on offer somewhere, at the moment they are 79p for 6 in Tesco.
Great for lunch boxes.
