“ Food quality: Organic food „
Kallo do a range of products which are both dairy free & gluten free, when I first started buying them, I thought they only did rice cakes, and that is all I bought until recently, now they do puffed rice cereal, stock, snacks, and more.
Here are the few I know about:
Rice Cakes - an alternative to standard wheat crackers, I like these but I am told people find the dry & polysterene like, I don't think they are.
There is a whole range of these: Salt free, lightly salted, with sesame seed, with marmite, thick, thin, snack size. You can buy them with milk or dark chocolate, and some mixed with oats but I have never bought them.
These can all be bought at supermarkets, I know Sainsburys and Tescos do a good range of them from around 69p for a packet, Holland & Barrett also do a good range but prices tend to be about 20/30p dearer.
Stock Cubes - I only found out recently that stock cubes have gluten in, so I tried these, I can't remember which ones, but none were very good. All of them had a strange aftertaste and I wouldn't buy them again. You can buy these from any good supermarket and cost around the same as any other leading stock cube. I found Knorr do a liquid stock which doesn't contain gluten which I now use.
Cereal - puffed rice, again not something I would buy again, I am not fan of this type of cereal anyway, and I found it bland and overpriced. I got this from Sainsburys at £1.99.
They do a whole range of other products which I haven't tried, but I have to be honest and say rice cakes are the only thing I would keep on buying, the other products don't really live up to what they are replacing.

Whilst shopping in boots last weekend for baby foods.I came across organic baby rusks by kallo. They are specially developed for babies of four months and up. Kallo organic rusks are made from selected organically grown ingrediants and include all the nutitional requirements for your baby.They also contain 50% less sugar than a standard rusk. You can mix them with milk or water or as a great finger food when your child is old enough to feed his or herself. They come in 7 twin packs which are sealed for freshness and convenience. I find they are very handy to pop into your changing bag as a handy baby snack. My baby loves these rusks. Each rusk has a cute rabbit on it and is enriched with vitamin b1. Healthy snacks have never tasted so good. give them a try and let me know what you think!
I want to let you know about some amazing rusks. I have tried to give my daughter primarily organic foods since she first started on solids, she is now 18 months. At first I could only find the standard rusks such as Boots own, Farleys etc then one week I went into Boots and they were stocking a new brand that are organic so I decided to give them a try. They cost £1.49 for a box of 14 rusks, weight 200g so they are a bit pricey but they are good and they are organic. They are called Kallo and are distributed in the UK by Kallo Group Ltd, Combe Lane, Workley, Godalming, GU8 5SZ. My daughter loves them and I must admit they are very tasty. They are egg, milk and E number free and are reduced sugar, much lower than most brands but another great thing about them is that the rusks come in little packets, 2 to a pack, so they are great for taking out as snacks. I keep a pack in my bag all the time and my daughter often asks for them when we are out and I have to admit I often have a nibble too. I hope that your babies enjoy them
