Organix Finger Foods Snack - Review

We were sent some of the new Organix Red Pepper Hearts and Cherry Rice cakes to try and review

Baby M is at the stage where he is exploring new foods and textures, we thought these snacks would be ideal.

First we tried the Red Pepper Hearts first.  These cost 75p per bag

The hearts are made from organic corn with red pepper and carrot flavouring added to each heart.

They were a huge hit with Baby M, he loved them.  They are a great size and shape for him to hold.  They are easy for him to eat too.  He sucks on them and they dissolve really well and bits break off so he can chew them. 

The Cherry Rice Cakes (£1.19) are small round rice cakes which are great for little fingers to hold.  They contain the juice of cherries and apples in each rice cake.  They are firmer than the hearts and I think this might have put Baby M off a little as they didn't dissolve in his mouth as easily.  They are aimed at children who are ready to start feeding themselves and I'm not sure Baby M is quite at the right stage yet.  Baby M did enjoy sucking all the cherry off these however when he was having a bad teething day he didn't seem to want to eat them.

 I will definitely be buying the Red Pepper Hearts again as these were a favourite of Baby M's.

The only thing that would make these snacks even better is if they were resealable.  Baby M only had 1 or 2 rice cakes or hearts at a time.  There is a good quantity in both packets and as a parent you want them to last and stay fresh for as long as possible.

I would recommend these as snacks for your child, especially when they are exploring finger foods and different textures and shapes.
