  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    We tried the kefir slurpy drink in strawberry and the snack in vanilla cheesecake flavours.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    The flavours were both delicious and not too sweet. My son thought the snack was an ice cream so he was super happy!

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    Nothing really, but the snack and drinks were difficult for my son at age two and a half to squeeze out, which is understandable.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    I would absolutely recommend. Perfect for lunch boxes and a great way of getting some good bacteria into their system.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    Squeezy Snack Vanilla Cheesecake flavour.

    Squeezy drink in Strawberry Cheesecake flavour.

    The flavours were both really yummy. The favourite for us both was the Vanilla Cheesecake flavour but we preferred the texture of the drink rather than the snack.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    The texture of the snack wasn't as nice as the drink.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kid

    Yes, perfect for lunch boxes.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    The Strawberry & Mango slurpy drinks

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    My daughter absolutely loved both flavours but especially the mango as different to the standard strawberry flavour.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    We didn’t dislike anything, I think the cost is a bit much for what it was and would probably put me off purchasing in the future

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    Easy snack, no mess and great flavours

    Struggled to find this product anywhere but glad we did, thanks for the opportunity

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    We tried the Slurpy drink in Strawberry and the sneezy snack in Vanilla Cheesecake
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    The flavours are ones that little kids will like and the products were tasty and easy to eat on the go for a healthier snack.
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    The squeeze snack got a little messy for my 5 year old, but she was happy to eat it though and really enjoyed it. The pouch is a great idea, but I think it is made out of plastic and therefore may not be recyclable (I was unable to check as my little threw the empty pouch into the bin after eating it!)
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it? They seem a great snack for filling hungry tummies and they're a great flavour. Perfect for on the go as well

1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
We had two of the strawberry kefir slurpy drinks as I wanted both of our children to try the same one.

2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
I liked the gut bacteria enhancing element of keffir. Both children loved the flavour and declared it delicious and a better flavour than standard commercial pouch yoghurts.

3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
I'd expected to get a box of pouches, maybe two in each flavour, with the voucher but got two vouchers for two individual pouches. I wouldn't buy individual pouches in this way, e.g. for packed lunches, as they're too expensive so can multi-packs be made available? They also need to be available in a wider range of stores as I wouldn't usualy shop in Sainsbury's because it's too expensive. Other keffir products (like the Yop style drink) seem to be available in a better range of flavours e.g. morello cherry. Any chnace of the children's slurpys being made in these flavours too as they don't have to be just "a pink one and a peach coloured one" in line with commercial competitors.

4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
Yes, the keffir has health benefits and my children both really loved this drink.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try? Strawberry/mango slurp drink.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    Sweet enough without added sugar. Kids liked that they were smooth, no fruit bits.
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried? The pouch lid was a bit tricky to open for my youngest. Otherwise, they loved them.
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it? No added sugar is a real selling point. Perfect for school. Great way to get good bacteria into kids who don't eat much yoghurt, or (like mine) only eat sugary fruit yoghurt.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    Strawberry squeeze, mango slurpy. There were no other choices in the two stores I tried.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    My DS liked squeezing the pack (though the side did leak and spurt across the room :-(). He liked the flavour and texture. I liked the protein level and he seemed full for a long time after. He would like to try it frozen. I’m surprised he liked it as I tried a bit and it seemed quite sour. He devoured the lot though and wanted more.
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    My son liked both But the squeeze pack split
    And spurted out
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    High protein. Healthy.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try? Mango slurpies (I tried 5 different stores and this was the only product/flavour that I could find). Fortunately my kids love mango.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried? Great flavour, easy to use, recyclable.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried? The kids weren't keen on the texture - they said it was like a diluted curdled yoghurt (I checked they were in date - and they were)!

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it? I love the idea, the concept, the serving size and the taste wasn't awful - but the kids weren't keen on the texture - my daughter definitely found it offputting and my son wasn't keen on the texture. I think this would work better if it was the texture of the probiotic yoghurty mini-drinks. I personally love the idea - but think it's an acquired taste. I'm not sure I'd purchase it routinely. If the texture was different and the kids were onboard then I'd purchase it for daily use - but not in it's current form.

    Slurpy Strawberry and Slurpy Mango

    There was nothing I disliked about them, but for my son they weren’t fruity and thick enough.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    The Squeezy Snack in Vanilla and Strawberry Cheesecake flavours.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    DD enjoyed feeding herself from the pouch and seemed to enjoy the flavours. I liked the minimal mess the pouches made, the fact they were all natural and the protein content.
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    I don't think they necessarily need to have cheesecake etc. flavours - fruit flavours would be fine!
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    I'd recommend them as a quick and convenient but still healthy snack - great for on the go, or fussy days when you just want to get anything nutritious into them!

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    Strawberry and mango slurpy pouches.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    Live cultures and low in sugar, without the addition of sweeteners as I won't allow the kids to have them. The kids didn't notice they were low in sugar and really liked them, so winning. Great for on the go and easy for the 1 year old to self-serve. I already the drink in bottles, but it is very messy for tiny hands.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    It is quite runny, so got spilled, especially by the 1 year old that likes to throw things. Thicker would be better. Also, probably a lot of packaging that can't be recycled, so I would feel eco guilt, but it wouldn't stop me.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    Tasty, healthy and convenient.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    Strawberry slurpy and strawberry Cheesecake squeezy

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    My son absolutely loved the slurpy strawberry flavour and asked me to buy more. Good amount, great as s snack and easy to use.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    The squeezy was too bland, needs a stronger flavour. Neither me nor my son were too keen.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    Quick easy snack. Healthy and they love it.

  1. Mango and strawberry slurpy.

  2. My 13 year old son liked them more than The Collective branded ones he usually has. He liked that they are not too sweet.

  3. The packaging being designed for younger children means he wouldn't want them his lunch box for school.

  4. Great that they are low sugar and good way of getting good gut bacteria in diet.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try? We tried the strawberry and mango slurpy drinks. The squeeze tubes looked fun but I wasn't sure the one year old would manage not to get it everywhere.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried? The kids loved them, I tried a tiny bit of the mango one and was pleased it wasn't overly sweet.
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried? Lots of plastic packaging which I don't think was recyclable. Also because it was so runny the one year old instantly squeezed it all over herself. I would put a bib on her next time.
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it? Yes, the kids really did like them and they make a nice fairly healthy snack that's quick and convenient.

Achooo · 17/02/2020 20:27

  1. We tried the Squeezy snack in vanilla cheesecake and Slurpy drink in strawberry.

  2. We liked the flavours and the fact both items were a healthy snack.

  3. We disliked the packaging of the Squeezy snack, which my toddler struggled with. It seemed like it’s been designed to look different than other products, so it stands out in the yoghurt aisle, rather than designed to be practical for kids. That said, I can see the packaging would work well if the product was frozen.

  4. I wouldn’t recommend the Squeezy with the current packaging, but would recommend the Slurpy drink as a filling and healthy snack.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try? We found the squeezy snack in vanilla cheesecake but could only find the slurpy drink in morello cherry.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    The morello cherry was a hit, and the texture was pleasant. The squeeze vanilla was less appreciated by my DD. She was put off by the texture- watery on top, then lumpy like cottage cheese. I persuaded her to squeeze it into a bowl and give it a good mix with some fruit, and she enjoyed it then.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    The texture of the squeezy vanilla, as stated above.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    It’s not sweet, and that makes a pleasant change for a child’s product!

Oh, I should add that DD (12) struggled to open the lid on the squeezy tube, and she said the flavour ‘tasted of nothing’. Sorry it’s not more positive feedback! She loved the cherry drink though and has asked to buy it again.

Rae1000 · 17/02/2020 21:16

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    Kefir slurpy pouch in strawberry and mango flavours.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    The flavours were both delicious. Daughter said it tasted exactly like strawberries and mango fruit respectively and not just flavours of them.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    Didn't dislike the product as such but I do think 75p for one yoghurty drink is just too expensive to go in a lunch box each day.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    I would recommend. Perfect for when out and about or in my opinion as a treat too. Easy way to get some good bacteria into kids. I would advise they are expensive though

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    Strawberry Cheesecake and Mango.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    The squeezy one was different with an unusual texture to it. The ingredients were healthy with no added sugar.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    The packaging for the squeezy one was odd. The mouth piece was quite large for my daughter so she squeezed it in which after awhile became soggy then she was getting bits of paper in her mouth! The slurpy one has a plastic lid not great in these times.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    My daughter enjoyed the flavours and they’re not sugar laden so yes I’d recommend them if they sort out the packaging!
