We were kindly gifted these spreads by Baby Led Spreads to review, I am so glad we we were given this opportunity as they will definitely be a staple in both the children’s diet from now on.
When Teddy started weaning at seven month, I opted for baby led weaning after doing a lot of re search online, this was definitely one of the best parenting choices I’ve ever made. I just wish I had done it with Krystabelle.
So what are Baby Led Spreads? Designed for baby led weaning, these little jars contain a range of different healthy, versatile spreads. They can be used on sandwiches, as fillings in jacket potatoes, as an easy sauce for warm or cold pasta dishes, as bases for homemade pizza, or as dips for crunchy vegetables, breadsticks, or toast fingers and are a 100% natural.
Baby Led Spreads were created by Keith, a proud father of his little girl Eden who is now two an a half and also has a son on the way. Read more about his story here and how he left the construction industry.
How We Got On
The first flavour we tried was Avocado, Red pepper & Tomato, we used this spread on pizza instead of tomato puree. This was a big hit with both Teddy and Krystabelle.
The second flavour we tried was Carrot, Apple & Hummus which we used as a dip along side some cucumber, celery, tomato, pepper and some turkey wafer thins. The spread was more of a hit than the actual food this time round and Teddy loved dipping his hands in and licking it all off.
The third flavour we tried was Red Lentil & Sweet potato, we mixed this into leftover pasta from the night before which also had some creme fraiche mixed into it too. Both Teddy and Krystabelle yet again demolished their plates.
Lastly the fourth flavour we tried was Green Pea, Rocket and dill which we added into their Chicken & Chorizo risotto. This was also a hit.
We still have a couple left to try which I am hoping to make some pastry pinwheels with. I shall look up some recipes, or if anyone has some suggestions please comment below.
I am so pleased with these Baby Led Spreads they have definitely made lunch times / dinner times more exciting for us and are packed full of flavour. (Of course I had a taste of each one) I will definitely be purchasing these on a regular basis and they are so handy if you are out and about.
I bet you’re wondering well how much do these cost, well a selection of nine jars (three different flavours) costs £6.50 and a selection of eighteen jars (six different flavours) costs £12.50. Oh and did I mention it’s free shipping too?
Not only is it free shipping but 30p or 60p from each sale (depending on which pack you buy ) is donated to Bliss (babies born prematurely or sick)
