Would you recommend Annabel Karmel Chilled Toddler Meals to other mums?    

When l opened the box the meals themselves are presented with sleeves which are very eye-catching with lots of plain, easily understood information that was interesting and informative for me as a mum. The portion size is generous and the meal itself looked appetising when l took it from the oven. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed them.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I wouldn't normally even consider giving my daughter a ready meal I always thought they were full of salt and sugar, however the ingredient list on these meals certainly put my mind at ease. I love the variety of the meals as its always lovely to give a choice. Sometimes the food l have at lunchtime is not something my daughter would necessarily eat so l will definitely be looking out for these in my weekly shop.

The presentation of the meals is excellent. The information contained on the packaging is in simple clear English and the ingredient list is very well set out. The food itself looks appealing and smells amazing and the fact l can buy it from the chilled section and then freeze it means my daughter can have a well prepared delicious meal at any time.

What changes would you make to this product?

The length of time it takes to cook in the oven is quite long when you have a hungry child waiting for their dinner. I cooked in the oven because the oven was in use for other things l know if l used a microwave the cooking time would have been reduced significantly. Maybe you could make the portions slightly bigger then l wouldn't feel so guilty pinching a taster. Overall l am very very impressed with these ready meals

I am over the moon with these meals! They are so packed full of hidden veggies and all things good for you and actually taste fantastic not like a generic depressed ready meal. You could easily eat and enjoy them as an adult but for me I know my toddler is getting the next best thing to a home cooked meal and that here won't be any hidden nasties. He adores them too!

How did this product make your life easier?     

It means that I can go out and not have to worry about coming back early to produce a nice home cooked veggie filled meal..I can grab a ready meal that's good for my boy and will give him the good veggies he needs as well as having no salt or other nasties, I'm so pleased that I don't have to feel guilty as the ready meals are probably better than my home cooking!

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product becuase it's so innovative and healthy getting youngsters to eat healthy. Lots of mums battle to get veggies in there kids and that can be a full time job in itself so if you can get a quick ready meal to help you out every now and then it makes your life as a mum a whole lot easier as you get on to the next job waiting for you!

What changes would you make to this product?

I would love to see even more variety in the range (even though there is masses already) I think some dairy gluten or wheat free items would be great for mums of allergy kids who may also need a quick microwave meal in the week sometimes too! We really like these meals and would look forward to what they may have coming in the future, more tasty flavours I hope! Brilliant.

I would definitely recommend Annabel Karmel Chilled Toddler Meals. The price is more than other meals but thats what you get for a good healthy meal for your children. The product packaging is cute bright and very inviting. There is a wide variety of meals to choose from so even the most picky child would enjoy these. Very quick and easy to make and my child adores these.

How did this product make your life easier?     

As a mum of 3 who is always busy, these meals help loads. If we've got home late and the toddler is getting close to bedtime and still not had dinner it's such a doddle to get one out. And also with working nights, i can sometimes be in a rush and having these on had have made me feel alot less guilty when needing to throw a quick healthy meal together.

Annabelle Karmel is every mother’s go-to when first learning about going from milk to food. A trustworthy brand that you know only wants the best for your children. So to have a ready meal option from her is amazing for mums on the go. This is my all-time favourite go-to meal option when I've not had time to prepare a healthy home cooked meal.

What changes would you make to this product?

There really isn't anything about branding, look or taste I would change about this product. It's lovely, bright, tasty and healthy. Plenty of options to choose from, even a fussy child would find something to like. It's everything you could possibly want. If anything, slightly larger portions options for hungrier children.
