“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
My daughter has a total obsession with yoghurts, first thing in the morning she waits by the fridge until you give her yoghurt. After running out last night I sent my other half down to our local Tesco around the corner, I usually just by the cheaper brands or the wildlife yoghurts as they are so cheap. But he came back with Muller little stars smooth yoghurt. We have tried the fromage frais which were a big hit but also expensive. So I was hoping that these would be just as good, and I was right.
These yogurts come in a pack of six 85 gram yoghurts priced at £1.58. The pack contains 2 x strawberry, 2 x blackcurrant and 2 x raspberry flavoured yoghurts. They contain only 7 ingredients which are 100% natural. They are also a great source of calcium, containing 11% of your recommended daily allowance. So far these are proven to be a very healthy, good for you product.
They taste fantastic! My daughter gobbled up the whole pot. I obliviously licked the lid and then decided to try a blackcurrant one. The flavour wasn't overpowering and didn't taste like they mixed a million different ingredients into one pot. The yoghurt tasted fruity and refreshing. Unlike other children's yoghurts I have tried these don't leave that nasty, rough feeling in your mouth.
It states on the packet that they are great for weaning, so I will be purchasing more when my 2 week old son gets to that stage.
These are great to pop in your child's lunch box or as a snack at home. They are very good for you but are slightly pricy. We have seen them on offer in some store though. So I will be picking these up again if there on a promotion.
My mum is saving the tokens on Muller Little Stars for the Peppa Pig books for my little sister so even though I don't eat a lot of yogurt I have been munching these cute little pots to help get the target number of god knows how many tokens she needs.
You get 6 small pots of yogurts in a cardboard sleeve, they are quite often on special offer at £1.00 but the usual price is about £1.45.
There are 3 flavours and you get 2 of each, today I've eaten one of each flavour and thought they were all yummy and more importantly so does my little sister who can't get enough of them.
This flavour is my least fave but only because I'm not mad keen on the flavour of blackcurrant anyway. It's got a lovely sweet taste and unfortunately for me tastes quite like natural blackcurrants, I love the fruity flavour and the rich purply colour of the yogurt. It has got a nice berry taste and is very smooth and full of flavour.
This is yummy. It's got a delish tangy raspberry flavour and tastes proper natural. The yogurt isn't as sweet as the other 2 in the packet but it is the one that tastes the most natural and not like the original raspberry flavour has been mucked around with. This one is my sister's fave too and she always asks for the one with the "reddy monster" on the pot!
Yummy, yummy, yummy! This doesn't taste like proper fresh strawberries but is more like the flavour of strawberry Starbursts. It's not sugary but has got a lovely sweetness that reminds me of the fruit and it's also got a very fruity and fun flavour. I reckon this one is my fave out of the lot, but then I love most things that are strawberry flavoured.
I think the Muller Little Stars range is wicked for babies and little kids, none of them have got any artificial ingredients and they all taste gorgeous and fruity. The pot size is perfect for toddlers but sometimes my little sister (who is 2) has 2 pots because she's got a big appetite when it comes to yogurts and stuff like that.
I always buy Muller Little Stars yoghurts as part of our big family shop. My 2 year old loves them and the nieces and nephews (ages 2 to 9) like eating them when they visit too. Muller Little Stars packs are almost always on offer at Asda & Tesco, with the deal usually being two Little Stars multi-packs for £2.50. Normal price is around £1.50 per multi-pack. Muller Little Stars range includes: Smooth Yoghurts, Fromage Frais and Fruity Jellies.
Each multi-pack contains 6x85g pots. The smooth yoghurt multi-pack contains a good selection of flavours (2x Blackcurrant, 2x Raspberry & 2x Strawberry). Muller Little Stars yoghurts are made with 100% natural ingredients and contain real fruit puree. It's also good to know that your child gets 11-12% of their RDA calcium, per 85g serving.
The best thing about Little Stars yoghurts is they are a healthy, delicious treat that is convenient too. They can be offered at breakfast time, as a snack, as part of lunch or as dessert after tea. The pots are small so ideal for little hands. They suit a wide range of ages due to the smooth consistency and are great for weaning. The yoghurts have a rich, creamy taste with a nice fruity flavour. They are fairly easy to open but I still help my little boy with the lid just in case!
Muller Little Stars often have pack promotions. Currently you can collect 4 tokens (one from each multi-pack pack) and redeem them for a free Peppa Pig book worth £3.99. I've just ordered one and all you need to do is enter the codes online, pick the book title and fill in your name and address. There's no postage to pay.
Another nice touch by Muller is that the cardboard packaging often has a print-out to turn it into something fun. Just add scissors and sticky tape!
Contains: Milk, Free From Artificial Colours, Free From Artificial Preservatives, Free From Nuts, Suitable for Coeliacs, Suitable for Vegetarians.
After founding a lot of strange ingredients in Munch Bunch and reviewed it here I received some tips. Thanks for them! I bought yesterday morning 2 packs of Müller Little Star smooth yogurts. My sons tried them today.
Price and package
I bought them in Sainsbury's for 2.50 pounds per 2 packs, each containing 6 pots. If you buy only one pack the price is 1.58 pounds. One pack contains 2 strawberry, 2 raspberry and 2 blackcurrant smooth yogurts. Each pot is 85 g. The pots are made of white plastic and it is quite difficult to get off the paper of it which is its cover.
If you buy 4 packs of these yogurts you will have 4 book tokens. Logon to www.littlestarspeppapig.co.uk and claim your free Peppa Pig book. The tokens are inside the cardboard paper cover. The promotion started on 1st September 2009 and the closing date is 31st January 2010.
My younger son is quite fastidious but he ate 2 yogurts in 5 minutes. The elder one took two as well but he finished in 2 minutes. I could hardly give him as fast as he ate it. So this yogurt passed the taste test. I am happy with it because these are healthy treats.
Strawberry yogurt contains: Yogurt, Water, Sugar, Strawberry Purée (5%), Corn Flour, Natural Flavourings, Beetroot Juice Concentrate.
Blackcurrant yogurt contains: Yogurt, Water, Sugar, Blackcurrant Juice from Concentrate (5%), Corn Flour, Natural Flavourings.
Raspberry yogurt contains: Yogurt, Water, Sugar, Raspberry Purée (5%), Corn Flour, Natural Flavourings, Carrot Juice Concentrate.
All of them contain milk.

I haven't tasted it as my sons ate it quickly. According to the list of ingredients is as a natural yogurt with just the minimum additives and all of them natural. So as it passed the taste test and my sons really like it I think I will stick to this one. I give them 2 pots each day (4 for two of them). One is not enough even for my younger son. As it is a healthy treat I don't care.
I recommend trying them and don't forget the free Peppa Pig books! There are 6 of them available.
Yet another review of one of the foods left in the fridge after a visit from my nephew... I don't buy all this kids food for myself you know - honest!
Containing only natural ingredients, Muller's 'Little Stars' are yoghurts which are primarily designed for kids. Available in a six pack multipack, you can currently buy the product from Tesco for a reduced price of 79p, with the normal cost being £1.58.
As standard, the multipack contains two blackberry, two raspberry and two strawberry flavoured yoghurts which come in small 85g pots, and have foil lids which are easy to peel off.

In terms of their contents, the Little Stars Smooth Yoghurt contains; Yoghurt, Water, Sugar, Strawberry / Raspberry / Blackberry Puree (5 - 6%), Corn Flour, and natural flavourings.
So, from the above list we can see that the product does indeed only contain natural ingredients as claimed on the packaging.

Mullers Little Stars Smooth Yoghurts have a pleasant taste, and due to their natural ingredients, actually taste of what they are supposed to. Although a little on the thin side in terms of their consistency, they are just about the right level of sweetness. If I was buying this yoghurt for myself (which I would probably never do), I would go for the Fromage Frais version which is also available in the Little Stars range, as I generally personally prefer a thicker creamier yoghurt - that said, my nephew really enjoys these.
I would highly recommend these yoghurts as a healthy snack for children as it contains natural ingredients and is also a good source of calcium for healthy bones and teeth - now would be a good time to buy them with Tesco's current half price promotion.

Muller little stars smooth yoghurts come in a cardboard sleeve which holds six small yoghurts. There are 2 of each flavour which are strawberry fruit, blackberry fruit, and raspberry fruit. Each yoghurt contains 6 ingredients which are 100% natural. They are a good source of calcium and can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet.
The outer cardboard sleeve is white with a picture of a dinosaur which is made up of fruit, which will be appealing to a young child. All of the important dietary information and ingredients can also be found on the outer sleeve, each individual yoghurt has a plastic foiled lid which also has a picture of an animal made up of fruit for example the blackberry yoghurts has a picture of a worm made of blackberries. The lids are easy to peel off, so they would be ideal as part of a packed lunch and they would make a better alternative to chocolate and they would also be good to give to a fussy child that won't eat much fruit as these are made using real fruit juice. The inside of the cardboard sleeve has pictures to colour and activities to keep the little one amused. Each pot holds 85 grams of yoghurt so they are a nice little size.
The yoghurts look quite pale in colour and are of a smooth consistency. There are no artificial colours used which is why they are quite pale in colour compared to other yoghurts. The yoghurts are all very nice and have a soft delicate fruit flavour that is not too strong for a little one that is at the weaning stage trying out new foods. They are not bland either and are enjoyed by all the family. I myself don't eat many yoghurts and I'm not too keen on 'lumpy' yoghurts so these are nice as a small snack or for after a meal.
These can be found in all good supermarkets and usually retail around £1.50 but can often be found on offer. So they represent good value for money and they are a healthier alternative to sweet foods. You can also find fromage frais and jellies in the same range with the similar packaging so be sure you have the picked up the right one. I am not tempted by either of these though.
These are not something I buy very often in fact we have probably only had them a handful of times, I like my 16 month old son to have a balanced and healthy diet but it is nice to have a treat. I usually buy these when he has a sore throat or when he isn't eating as much during teething. Whenever he see's me bringing him a yoghurt he gets very excited as he loves them and has been known to eat two in one sitting! Just as well we don't have them too often.
I had a sore throat at the weekend and thought I would end up passing it on to my son as we are very close and naturally pass illness on to one another. So whilst doing my weekly shop I decided to buy a pack of the smooth yogurts for the fridge. Although it takes a lot for my son not to eat as he has a better appetite than me and eats a wider range of foods than I do. He has always been a good eater from the weaning stage and I have always given him finger foods as some children love to be able to be in control and get more satisfaction from eating. I always provide my son with a spoon with his meal but he doesn't have time for that! Its both hands in, I have never really had to spoon feed him unless it is something like a yogurt but he is now at an age where he likes to be independent and will push away as if to say "I can do it" last night I thought to myself I should try and teach him how to eat from a spoon and I had a *brainwave* he-he! I decided to put a yoghurt with a spoon in front of him to see what he would do with it, and I sat watching with delight as he ate the entire contents of the pot using his spoon without any intervention. I knew it would encourage him to use the spoon as he loves these Muller little star yoghurts.
They are perfect for babies that are weaning and they are recommended from 6 months onwards as this is the recommended age to start weaning a child. This is stated on the front of the pack of the cardboard sleeve.
I would say that these are one of the better yoghurts that are aimed at young children as they are free from Artificial Colours, Artificial Preservatives, Free from Nuts, and they are also Suitable for Coeliacs, and Vegetarians. They should be part of a healthy balanced diet. Don't forget to brush your little ones teeth after meal times to reduce the risk of tooth decay.
* Good for the weaning stage
* Teething babies will enjoy these as a cool treat
* Can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet
* Great for teaching your child how to use a spoon
* Easy to eat when feeling under the weather

I first started giving my daughter yogurt when we were weaning, at about the age of six to seven months, and she has always been very keen on it. I have tried a wide variety of full fat yogurts, from plain, organic through to fruit flavoured. Recently, I saw a six pack of the Muller Little Stars Smooth Yogurts, and decided to give them a try. I was very pleased with them, and my daughter seemed to enjoy eating them. They do not have a lot of ingredients, and seem to be quite natural, with no additives or E numbers. There is a little sugar, I think but not too much. I usually try to buy yogurts and other foods, without any added refined sugar, as I am concerned about tooth decay.
I think that the pack of yogurts cost around £1.50, which is not that cheap, but is good as an occasional buy. They are also less likely to go off, as they they are in small individual pots, and not one large pot. The size is just about right for a toddler.
MULLER LITTLE STARS
Muller have been making yoghurts for a considerable time now. It is a product I have been buying for several years.
Once my grandchildren started to come along I was looking for a good quality and value yoghurt for them. These were an ideal choice for me.They are made by a company I know and trust.
They come in sixes and have a cadboard covering over them. They retail around £1.35 for six but can usually be bought in supermarkets on special offers e.g. buy two for £2.
They are made from 100% natural ingredients,and contain only six ingredients. There is 65 kcalories per 60 gram pot. The flavours are great - raspberrry, strawberry and peach.
Not only are these yoghurts great for children they are also great as a weaning food for babies six months and upwards.
You can also buy little stars fromage frais and jellies. These also come in packs of six and retail at the same price.
Once the kids taste these the will definitely want more.ll
I've always felt quite lucky that my young daughters have a love of fruit and all things fruity (although I have to admit as they get older it's harder to steer them away from the chocolate!) so it's never been a problem getting them to eat healthy yoghurts and such like. We have probably tried all of the different ones aimed at young children, but now we seemed to have settled on one favourite - Muller Little Stars. There are quite a few reasons why my daughters enjoy these so much and some other reasons why as a mum I approve of them too!
I think that one of the reasons why my daughters like them is because of the clever and inviting packaging. They come in a set of six individual plastic tubs and each of the foil lids have an intriguing dinosaur type picture on it. These are cleverly made up of the different fruit which are in the yoghurt. For example there is a crocodile type creature with a big wide mouth which looks as if it is made up of raspberries. My daughters love looking at all the different pictures and choosing which one they are going to have! Also the plastic pots have an outer cardboard covering with the same clever pictures on them. However, once you have removed the pots you can turn the cardboard over and there are some pictures to colour in, counting activities and jokes, which are a nice added touch.
My daughters also seem to really enjoy the tastes of the different flavoured yoghurts. These are two each of strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant and apparently they all taste delicious. Another bonus is that the yoghurts are totally smooth so there are definitely no pips or bits that need fishing out! When you open them up they are all quite pale in colour which is good because you can tell that no colourings or anything have been added.
I think that these yoghurts are also just the right size for them to have as a dessert after their main meal. Each pot contains 85 grams of yoghurt and it doesn't take long for them to eat these up. Also they are a very good size to go in their packed lunch box when they go to nursery!
There are a number of reasons why I am very happy to buy these yoghurts for my girls. Firstly they have no artificial ingredients which is always a very big plus for me. They are also a very good natural source of calcium and also they contain real fruit. Above all though, my daughters do really enjoy them and that is good enough for me!
Within the Muller Little Stars range as well as the smooth yoghurts, they also make fromage frais and jellies which my daughters equally enjoy. A pack of six costs £1.48 at Sainsburys but they often do a two packs for £2 offer and then you can mix and match amongst the three different types.
All in all I think this is a good healthy dessert which I am happy to give to my children.
