Hosting the event was the best selling author Annabel Karmel, this was because she has teamed up with Disney to use their popular Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh characters on the packaging for her new range of toddler snacks. Because Disney are endorsing these products they are being made to stand up to the stringent nutritional standards set by Disney. I will be completely honest with you here and say I have not investigated this fully, I am quite a trusting kind of girl, that is just me. I will look at the nutritional composition on the back of a pack and look at the ingredients and if nothing seems out of sorts then I will give the product to my children. Some parents are different and that is fine, please feel free to investigate.
Basically this range has been devised by Annabel so that small people can still snack during the day but on more healthy or nutritious things than crisps and chocolate. The range is aimed at children of 12 months or more and the appeal is quite wide ranging my 7 year old adored the chewy bars and the 3 year old girls were more taken with the mini biscotti biscuits. Another favourite was the strawberry flavoured raisins. A strange idea as far as I was concerned but Miss E was taken with them, so who am I to argue?
The range also includes fruit crisps and rice and corn snacks but I did not get to try these. I would say they are packaged in an appealing way, the size is just right for children and they were filling so I will buy these products again. You can find them stocked in good supermarkets, I noticed Sainsburys had a third off at the moment! A pack of these corn snacks is currently 32p or 49p normal retail price, that is about the same as something like the children's Organix range.
At the event on Sunday we were lucky enough to receive some of these goodies to try and also 2 Annabel Karmel cook books. One I have kept for myself to use and the I want to share my good fortunate with you, so the other I am giving you the chance to win. It is the to 100 pasta recipes and is full of lots of quick and simple ideas for family meals.
