This is the feedback thread for the Mumsnetters with children aged 2 - 6 who have been testing Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms in Orange & Rainbow Carrot and Blackberry & Beetroot flavours.

Here’s what Soreen has to say: “With Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms it’s never been easier to squidge more fruit and veg into your little one’s diet! Packed with the goodness of orange & rainbow carrot, and berry & beetroot (not that they’d know!), they’re deliciously sweet, bursting with yummy flavours and high in fruit and veg too! What’s more, each bake provides a source of fibre, is low in saturated fat and plant based too.With 5 individually wrapped bakes per pack, eating fruit and veg has never been easier or tastier.
So, if you’re a parent who wants to be able to say ‘yes’ instead of ‘no,’ to the constant ‘can I have…’ questions that kids love to ask; then stock up now on new, Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms and relax knowing that with every ‘Yes!’, they’re getting a healthier snack that’s high in fruit and veg!”

1. What did you and your child like most about Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms?
The taste. Although the DC wouldn’t eat it I thought it was nice. They are extremely fussy though, so only ate one tiny piece of each, then said they wanted the ordinary soreen.
2. What was your child’s favourite flavour?
Neither. Mine was the orange.
3. When would your child eat this product? Perhaps a mid-morning snack or after lunch for example?
I would usually serve it after a sandwich, that’s when they eat original soreen. I don’t generally give them snacks separate to meal times.
4. What is important to you when buying snacks for your child?
That they’ll hopefully eat it and it isn’t full of chemicals.
5. What other flavours would you like to see in the Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms range?
Can’t think of any.

LadyWhistledown Mon 19-Apr-21 18:14:03

1. What did you and your child like most about Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms?

We both liked the texture, my daughter really likes the Soreen mini malt loaves and these were almost identical in shape and texture so felt very familiar to her. I liked the fact that they didn’t crumble and make lots of mess as she travels around the house/ repeatedly drops it on the floor/ eats it in the car seat.

2. What was your child’s favourite flavour?

Beetroot and berry was her favourite. This pack disappeared very quickly as she chose this first every time. She wasn’t as enthusiastic about the carrot and orange but I think the orange taste put her off a bit as it was quite strong and tasted a bit like her multivitamin.

3. When would your child eat this product?
Perhaps a mid-morning snack or after lunch for example?

Either a mid morning snack or at the end of nursery/day at the childminders. She always comes out ravenous and I am expected to have a snack ready as soon as she’s in the car! They are also handy to take out on the go.

4. What is important to you when buying snacks for your child?

Taste, sugar content, natural flavours and colours rather than artificial. Whether or not she will eat it!

5. What other flavours would you like to see in the Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms range?

Carrot and lemon
Sweet potato and cherry
Squash and apple

3. When would your child eat this product? Perhaps a mid-morning snack or after lunch for example?

1. What did you and your child like most about Soreen Fruit & Veg-Mmms? They smelled rich and sweet and looked moist and delicious.

3. When would your child eat this product? Perhaps a mid-morning snack or after lunch for example? After lunch/ part of a lunchbox
