Hello

We have been asked by the team at Ella's Kitchen to find 100 Mumsnetters to try out dairy products from their NEW range of fresh food with their LOs.

To take part you need to:

~ Have at least one child aged 6 months - 4 years
~ Be able to go to an Asda, Waitrose or selected Tesco (typically larger stores) to get the product - you will be sent vouchers
~ Have your child(ren) try the items and then to add feedback to a thread on Mumsnet.

The items on test are as follows and Ella's Kitchen says "We want MNers to give us their thoughts on our NEW dairylicious fromage frais, raspberry rice pudding and yoghurt. Our dairylicious Big Tastes come from real fruit, that's why we never add refined sugar. All are organic"

To be tested are:

NEW super smooth + creamy fromage frais
~ 20% real squished fruit
~ Whole milk is a natural source of calcium
~ Organic
~ RRP £1.89

NEW stir me up raspberry rice pudding
~ real squished fruit
~ natural creamy wholemilk
~ Organic
~ RRP £1.09

NEW chilled out thick + smooth yoghurt
~ 20% real squeezed fruit
~ Whole milk is a natural source of calcium
~ Organic
~ RRP £1.79

In the case of allergies etc please check out the links above. Please only apply if you are sure they are ok for your LO(s).

The 100 testers selected will receive 3 vouchers so that they can try one of each of the products - they'll also be sent a "very desirable" (money can't buy!) Ella's Kitchen upcycled lunch bag grin. The vouchers can be redeemed at Asda, Waitrose and selected Tesco stores.

Once your LO's have tried the products, you will be asked to add feedback to a thread on Mumsnet - as a thank you for taking part all testers who add feedback will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a month's supply of Ella's kitchen products and an Ella's Kitchen cow print cool bag (worth approx. £45 in total).

If you fit the bill and would like to take part please add your details here

Thanks and good luck

This sounds great - am filling in the survey. DS1 loves yoghurt and fromage frais! However, just wanted to warn you the links in the OP don't seem to be working? It doesn't matter too much to me - no allergies here - was just interested to see a bit more information about them - but I'm guessing it will be more important for other people.

Sounds good!

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 05-Feb-13 11:16:49

redkites - weird - they work for me?!

constantnamechanger Tue 05-Feb-13 11:17:53

done

LillethTheCat Tue 05-Feb-13 11:18:37

Filled out survey. Fingers crossed. Yoghurt (or dodurt) is one of the few words my 16MO says and says it all the time.

nannyn Tue 05-Feb-13 11:18:53

I can already give them some feedback, the fromage frais have upset both of my LO's stomachs. They are fine with the yoghurt.

RedKites Tue 05-Feb-13 11:27:33

Ooh, they're working now - they look good. And I'm intrigued what DS1 would make of rice pudding. Maybe it was just a momentary glitch although I do have a 3mo non-sleeping baby so maybe I imagined it ?

Yoghurt is DS's preferred food! Sadly DP always pinches it. Perhaps if it's actually aimed at littlies poor DS might actually stand a chance...

Caitycat Tue 05-Feb-13 11:52:04

Pick me, pick me, loving this exciting weaning phase with littlecat!

Sleepyfergus Tue 05-Feb-13 12:10:11

Done!!

Tee2072 Tue 05-Feb-13 12:13:13

Is there a list of Tescos that have them? Or at least geographical areas? Being in Belfast, I don't have a convenient ASDA or a Waitrose at all.

AmandinePoulain Tue 05-Feb-13 12:19:54

Done! I want both dds to eat calcium rich food without loads of extra sugar and these sound perfect smile

Arion Tue 05-Feb-13 12:34:40

Done. Their pouches are very good quality, would be good to try the yogurts/pudding

cassell Tue 05-Feb-13 12:50:57

I'm disappointed looking at the links that they gave put agave nectar in all of them, just because it's organic it's still essentially pure sugar. My reason for buying/trying these would be because of no added sugar which is a little misleading as they do have added sugar just not 'refined'.

A shame as the pouches etc are good.

Tee2072 Tue 05-Feb-13 13:03:14

It doesn't say 'no added sugar' it says 'no added refined sugar'.

cassell Tue 05-Feb-13 13:22:07

I know that Tee, legally it is fine - but it is misleading to the average consumer who assumes that means no added sugar. Also I just don't see the need for adding any sugar - the previous version of the fromage frais without any was fine. I get (irrationally!) annoyed by how much sugar is added to children's products under all sorts of names to try and pretend it is healthier. I didn't think Ella's kitchen was one of those brands.

Hi, can provide feedback for the thick and smooth yoghurt. It really didn't agree with LO, who loves petit filous, munch bunch etc. not only that, he really didn't like the flavour, myself and OH tasted it too and it really tasted awful and was really sour as well. Perhaps it was a bad bunch but after tasting it myself, it wasn't a pleasant flavour.

IncogKNEEto Tue 05-Feb-13 13:31:15

Done. I agree with *Arion, I always found the pouches were very good quality, would be happyto try the yogurts/pudding range.

WheresMyCow Tue 05-Feb-13 13:43:11

Done - DS always loved the pouches but now prefers the ones from Aldi even though he is over 2 shockgrin

blibblibs Tue 05-Feb-13 13:47:36

Done! Sure the LOs would love these.

Done. Hopefully I get picked and DD likes them. She loves petit filous.

readyforno2 Tue 05-Feb-13 13:50:13

Done.

How much is a months supply?

My DS (7 months) is currently getting through 3 pouches at a time.

Kirk1 Tue 05-Feb-13 14:51:36

Details added! The DC weren't impressed with the original products in this range, hopefully the yoghurt and fromage frais will be a bigger hit!
