With a family of eight it is always a challenge at mealtimes, firstly trying to get everyone to agree on a meal that we will all eat, second, that doesn’t take too much time to prepare, and finally something that tastes good but is healthy….
We are always keen to try new foods in the Morrison household, so I was very pleased to be given the opportunity to try The new Tilda Kids rice.
This is what they say about the rice…
Tilda and its new Tilli the elephant character will be helping busy mums to feed their hungry hoards this Spring with the launch of its delicious NEW rice and veggies range – Tilda Kids.
Travelling far and wide, Tilli’s range is full of goodness providing 1 of your 5-a-day with a selection of the best natural ingredients to make four tasty child-friendly rice and vegetable meal accompaniments, sure to help busy mums keep their little ones happy and satisfied during mealtimes.
Kids can choose from familiar classic flavour varieties such as Cheese & Tomato, Sunshine Vegetable, Sweet Vegetable & Wholegrain and Mild & Sweet Curry….yum yum!
Available in 125g pouches each meal has been specially developed to cater for a child’s taste pallet and growing appetite. They can be eaten on their own or as an accompaniment to all their favourites – meat or fish.
What’s more, each pouch takes only 40 seconds to cook in the microwave, is full of goodness, no nonsense and carries the Tilda reassurance of being made using only the finest quality ingredients containing ‘1 of your 5-a-day’, and is a nutritious alternative to other starchy carbohydrates that children need for energy.
The new range also caters for fussy eaters as each pouch contains a blend of hidden vegetable puree as well as small pieces to help boost your youngsters vegetable intake!
I was a little sceptical about the hidden vegetable puree as some of the children seem to have a nose for these type of sneaky ploys….
As you can see from the photo tyrus loved the rice, although not when it was in the bowl!!
All of the children tried each of the flavours and didn’t mention any extra ingredients!! their particular favourite was the Mild & Sweet curry.
The thing I loved about it was the speed that it was able to be served, just a quick whizz in the microwave and the children had a healthy filling snack, or as part of a bigger meal, and with the extra vegetable puree hidden it is great for the fussy eater in the family, who I shall not name!!
The new Tilda Kids range is available in Tesco stores and most Morrisons, Waitrose and Asda stores and on Ocado, with an RRP of £1.15 for a 125g pack.
