Little Bellies Cereals

I received a sample box of little goodies from Little Bellies and you can receive one too! (Link at the bottom of this post.) There is too much in the range to fit into one post, so I'm reviewing each of the product categories separately. Today is cereal day!

We have loved the Peach Numbers since I first discovered them a few years ago. They're just the right size for little fingers & I often include them in trail mix. I find the peach flavour fresh & not too sweet or overpowering. Nutritionally speaking, per 100g you're looking at 2.2g fat (less than 1g saturated fat), 4.4g sugar, 6mg sodium, and 6.4g fibre these are fabulous!! (I use the RHealth keyring cheat guide to judge this).

I'm so excited to learn that Little Bellies have released a new cereal - 'Hoops & Loops'! It is suitable from 9 months, which is a first for the company, their other products are all 12 months plus. Again nutritionally these are great. Per 100g, you'll find 1.9g fat (0.3 saturated), 4.3g sugar, and 23mg sodium. Texture wise they are light and crunchy. I find them a little dry, but they are a cereal designed to be consumed with milk, not by the handful with a cuppa like I tend to do ;-P The banana flavour is strong but not overpowering.

  • Flavour - yum!
  • Texture - light & crunchy!
  • Certified Organic
  • Good source of calcium & whole grains 
  • Low in sodium, sugar & fat
  • Hoops & Loops suitable from 9 months
  • Just the right size for little fingers
Loving a little less, but liveable:
  • Imported product
  • At $2.32/100g (according to Coles) for the Peach Numbers and $5.00/100g (according to Woolworths) these aren't the cheapest.
Miss M will no longer sit down to a bowl of these, but is quite happy to nibble on some in a trail mix. I look forward to Honey being able to enjoy the Hoops & Loops, and them being able to share a bowl of goodness. Little Bellies will certainly be on my shopping list once Honey gets up there a bit.
