for aisha, a new Halal baby food company, has just launched their new range of baby food pouches, specially formulated for babies from 7 months onwards. The nutrient dense protein dishes, packed with healthy wholesome ingredients, are an excellent source of iron and essential fatty acids that are vital for little ones.
Made from the finest certified Halal meat, crammed with natural goodness, the pouches are available in six scrumptious flavours from around the world – Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Couscous and Apricots, Shepherd’s Pie with Lamb and Aromatic Spices, Authentic Indian Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry, Mild Curried Chicken Dhal made with Lentils, Jamaican Jerk Chicken with Mango and a Vegetarian Tomato and Chunky Chickpea Curry.
It’s great to know that for those busy days when you’re on the go, there are now more options available – especially suitable for families eating a Halal diet.
“The wide range of herbs, spices and ingredients will enhance the taste, texture and goodness of the food. This delicious combination of new foods from different cultures are guaranteed to incentivise little ones to develop healthy eating habits and expand their taste buds. “ says Sajida Manzoor, Registered dietitian Bsc, Msc Advanced Nutrition.
“Muslim parents in particular find it difficult to find suitable halal meat food products that will not compromise their religious beliefs. They become reliant on vegetarian or dessert options and this lack of choice can often lead to infants to miss out on essential vitamin D and iron found in meat based products” adds Sajida.
Since my boys are past this stage now, I enlisted the help of another local mum to try out the pouches and see what her little one made of them. She tried them with her 10 month old son, and here’s how they got on with the for aisha Halal baby food:
Dawud enjoyed all of the pouches and actually devoured the entire pouch each time. His favourite was the jerk chicken, he couldn’t get enough of that one! I think the food was flavoursome, and came with attractive packaging.
The consistency was very smooth-the type that I would give to Dawud at 7/8 months. Now that he’s 10 months he would be getting ready to move onto stage 3 food but can still eat these pouches.
All in all, I did like them, I would buy them for my baby if aged 7/8 months but not older unless more texture was introduced. They are Flavoursome and tasty recipes.
The for aisha Halal baby food range is available nationwide in ASDA, Ocado, Boots online and Whole Foods Market and is aimed at babies aged 7 to 12 months
