Big Sis has always loved Little Dish meals (especially the yummy Mild Chicken Korma, which always smells so good I wish I had one for myself…)
So when the lovely Charlotte from LD asked if she wanted to try out the new Beef and Spinach Cannelloni, well, let’s just say Todzilla didn’t need asking twice.
It arrived in a snazzy Little Dish cooler pack, which Big Sis was so excited about she insisted on filling it with her toys and carrying it around all day, like a designer handbag.
We sampled the cannelloni later that night (super-duper cool Cow plate not included…).
It contains no added salt or sugar, and counts as one portion towards your five-a-day fruit and veg target.
All very impressive, but as we Mums know all too well, all the health benefits in the world don’t mean a thing if your little one refuses to eat it!
Big Sis has been going through a bit of a picky stage recently, and hasn’t been overly keen on red meat, so I wasn’t entirely sure how she’d react to this. But she gobbled it right up – like one of those professional speed eaters trying to beat their personal best.
It was a definite thumbs up from the Monkey.
AT £2.29 for a 200g serving, it’s a bit more than I would usually budget for one toddler meal. I try to buy a dish each week with the big shop – or more if there’s a BOGOF or a special deal – and freeze them.
They’re great for when I’m really busy with work, or we get home late, and I just don’t have time or energy to prepare a nutritious meal.
The Little Dish range is available from Tesco, Waitrose, and Sainsbury’s stores. For more info check out www.littledish.co.uk
