Oaty Carrot Bars

Testing the Aldi Mamia Carrot Cake Soft Oaty Bars

One mum said: "I'd recommend this product to a friend as it's the perfect travel-sized snack for toddlers. The bars are individually wrapped and easy to transport in the changing bag. They're easy to open for those snack emergencies (we've all been there!). The oaty texture of the product (in comparison to others on the market), is much better quality. The taste was also an instant hit with my toddler!

"The price of these are affordable for most parents for the amount you get. They are really convenient to have in your bag as an on the go snack, easy for your child to hold and feed themselves, but also breakable for you to feed them portions. The flavour came through really well and none of them overpowered the other."

Another added: "I really liked this product, I would definitely buy them again and would recommend to fellow mums. I liked that the ingredients of the Carrot Oaty Bars are organic, it was easy for my baby to hold and feed herself. The packaging was bright and inviting and it didn't take long for her to start recognising it and for her to get excited. It is a great size for a snack or pudding after a main meal. The price for this product is great, and really good value for money."

One tester commented: "Having a child with a cow milk protein allergy is difficult and it's even harder to find cake-like items that don't contain any variations of cow milk or whey powder, so these are a massive win for me and my family. They are handy as they come individually wrapped, so they are so easy to pack in her lunchbox for a day out. They don't need to be kept in the fridge so are great for all weathers even if you are out all day."

Final thoughts

Aldi's Mamia Carrot Cake Soft Oaty Bars come in packs of six which are all individually wrapped, making them easy to just throw in your bag for on-the-go. It also means they can be wrapped back up, if your little one becomes full and can be finished off later, reducing food waste. Although the texture of them is crumbly so can make quite a mess, it's nothing that can't be cleaned up. However, this might prevent parents from giving them in certain places, like car seats or pushchairs.

They are a good source of fibre and are organic whilst also being vegetarian, which gives you reassurance that you know what your child is consuming. The shape of the oaty bars makes it easy for little hands to hold, allowing them to feed themselves and helping with the weaning journey.
