Amy’s Kitchen Vegetarian and Gluten Free Range

Amy’s Kitchen Vegetarian and Gluten Free Range

Amy’s Kitchen was actually set up in the US by parents Rachel and Andy Berliner who, before they had their daughter Amy grew their own vegetables and spent a lot of time preparing home cooked meals.  As you can understand when their daughter arrived all of this was thrown out of the window and time was of the essence when their daughter needed feeding.  This is why they set up Amy’s Kitchen so that other families who were looking for delicious home cooked food, without the hassle could buy it.

Price: Ranging from £1.99 – £3.00 depending on the product.

Available from: Check online for local stockists. We sourced ours at our local Asda.

Suitable From: All ages Adults and Children

Initial Reaction: I was a bit sceptical about anything that’s gluten free as in my experience gluten free can mean taste free and a bit grainy. We tried the ‘Rice Mac and Cheese’ and the ‘Bean and Cheese Burrito’. Continue reading

NAKD ‘Nudie’ Bars

NAKD ‘Nudie’ Bars

Price: 75p each, £2.39/four

Available from: Supermarkets, online

Suitable from: around 1 yr

Initial Reaction: I admit I was slightly sceptical about these ‘Nakd’ bars. I don’t like ‘text speak’ and silly modern spellings, so I was being my usual grumpy self: “Why don’t they just call them Naked?!”. But hey, they’re the experts. 😉

The bars are packed full of great stuff: 100% natural ingredients, with no added sugars or syrups. None of my family have a problem with gluten, wheat or dairy, but if they did, Nakd bars would be ok. The ingredients are listed very clearly, and they’re basically all made of fruit (mostly dates) with finely chopped nuts.

We like to take snacks or picnics out and about, and I’m terrible for finding a battered apple or clementine at the bottom of my handbag. These looked ideal to quickly grab for a day out. Continue reading
