A little while ago the people from Fruit Pack asked if they could send me a couple of samples… I said “Yes!”
Seriously, what else could I say? Firstly, it was the first time anybody had contacted me to send me FREE stuff and secondly (kind of defeating the purpose for them) I already knew that Little OL loved them.
When Little OL was still Baby OL I used to buy them all the time. I always had her nappy bag “ready to go”, so these were the perfect snack to store in there. I did not have to worry about the fruit going off or spoiling. She loved them (still does- especially the strawberry and banana) and they are pure fruit. Wins all round.
I do have a warning though… there have been few incidents where I have ended up with fruit puree in my hair. The first time was when Little OL was still little and I was holding it for her, she tried to grab the packet (pouch??? sachet??) out my hands, I grasped it tightly – not a good idea. Puree went up, up and with perfect aim hit me squarely in my face and head (in the middle of a crowded shopping centre). Thankfully Little OL now seems to have the hang of eating these straight out the sachet and all I need to do is leave her be. If I interfere she squeezes too hard and it’s not good.
My best advice; give to toddler and let them enjoy while you stand well clear.
