We were sent the four pouches of this new rice range to review with my boys. As a grown up I found it slightly bland but then its not targeted for me, youngest loved it and I was so pleased as I have not been able to get him to eat rice before.
I love how it’s so quick and easy to prepare, sometimes juggling the boys (and their heated arguments) and preparing a decent meal do not go together well. So being able to open a packet, put it in the microwave, fluff and serve is so simple and your even giving them one of their five a day.
Reassuringly you can see vegetables in the rice and there is blended hidden vegetable puree too. You can feel like a good mum and tell the health visitor yes my children do eat a wide range of foods… (Even if it only takes 40 seconds to cook in the microwave!)
The packaging is appealing for little ones with wildlife on the front. I think seeing the tiger; elephant, parrot and monkey helped them be less intimated and fussy about the contents.
The 125g pack sizes are perfect for your child’s appetite and can be eaten on their own or with meat or fish. The flavour varieties are Cheese & Tomato, Sunshine Vegetable, Sweet Vegetable & Wholegrain and Mild & Sweet Curry, so a good mix to develop a child’s palate.
The new Tilda Kids range is available in Tesco and most Morrisons, Waitrose and Asda stores and on Ocado, with an RRP of £1.15.
