Brand new savoury toddler snacks from Little Dish made with 40% chickpeas!
I don’t know about you guys, but my kids are big snackers and always have been. No matter how much they eat for their main meals, they always seem to be peckish just a short time later. I guess it’s the sign of a healthy appetite but as a parent, trying to keep a constant supply of healthy snacks on hand is hard work!
So I’m always really excited when new snacks come onto the market that are kid-friendly but also healthy. Little Dish have just launched a brand new savoury snack range called Pop Pops. Made with 40% chickpeas, they are significantly lower in salt and saturated fat compared to many popular crisp brands.
They are also a source of protein and fibre, are gluten free and contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
These Pop Pops are available in four savoury flavours – Original, Cheese, Sweet Red Pepper and Tomato and can be found in the Baby Aisle in Sainsburys and Tesco right now (RRP 75p per 17g bag), with more supermarkets and shops to follow!
Pop Pops are approved by nutritionist and mum Lucy Jones who explains: “Crisps often feature in parents’ quick fix snacks and are loved by children. Whilst fine as a treat, generally crisps are high in fat and salt, low in essential nutrients and therefore aren’t a useful addition to our everyday diets. Pop Pops are a healthier snack. A 17g bag provides a source of protein and is high in fibre.”
My kids loved these snacks and the Sweet Red Pepper flavour was a particular hit! They made a fantastic afternoon snack paired with some raw veggies and dips. They’d also make a great addition to a packed lunch or picnic at the park or even served at birthday parties and playdates too!
