We have been asked to check out the new Organic Baby Range from Quinola and tell you what we thought about it!
Let me tell you a little bit about Quinola Baby:
Quinola is committed to giving you the best products that are healthy for both your child and good for the planet. All the ingredients in our recipes derive from organic and sustainable agriculture, and all production processes have been conceived to minimise the carbon footprint of our products.
The social aspect is equally important to us. Our quinoa is not only organic but also sourced under Fair Trade terms.
Now you are probably wondering: What is Quinoa?
Quinoa is an herbaceous plant grown for its protein-rich grains. It is not a true cereal or a grass, it belongs to the family of beets and spinach. The Incas gave quinoa the name Chisiya Mama, or Mother of all Grains, and they cultivated it for over 5,000 years in the highlands of South America. Quinoa was in fact the staple crop of most pre-Columbian civilisations.
So Quinola Baby have got 6 different pack of baby food and we tried out the Peas & Spinach as well as the Butternut squash one:
The Butternut Squash, Carrot & Quinoa is for Stage 3 of your weaning journey
and the ingredients are as follows:
and that is it – NOTHING else!
I was eager to see how my little tester likes it she loves butternut squash so i was hoping
we are onto a winner:
….and we are!!!
I am combining purees and baby led weaning with Molly-May and only recently started introducing her to more lumpy textured baby purees but due to her eating loads of finger food she got the hang of it pretty quickly. She loved both flavours and each pouch lasted us for 2 meals. Its defiantly a product i would buy in the future!
We got also send some packs of the Alice and Oscars Express Quinoa which is ready in 2 minutes and makes a perfect addition to a quick midweek meal and a pack of Quinoa Supergrain which is the perfect alternative to rice:
Our thoughts on the above Products:
I never hear about or tried Quinola before so i was very curious to what it taste like.
It does look a bit like couscous but its softer.
It has a really nice flavour to it, i eat it with some leftover chicken but i think it would also make
a great and healthy alternative to rice for any indian meals we cook.
I was pleasantly surprised how much i liked it and i am looking forward to cooking
some more with it!
