  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    The strawberry one and the mango one.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    We really liked the packaging and the labelling. The tops were sufficiently robust and yet my 9-year old son could open it unaided. The strawberry one was tasty.


  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    I realise we've all become accustomed to sweet flavours- but both of these products were not sweet enough- even naturally. The strawberry one was better- but the mango one needed more flavouring.


  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    I'd recommend it if you were looking to switch from a sweet yogurt to something else. But it would take some getting used to in terms of flavour. It's a good size for a lunchbox treat.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    The strawberry and mango slurpy drinks.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    My dc could open them without assistance - always a concern with packed lunches.
    They liked the flavours, said that they were really tasty.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    Not a dislike as such but they said that the strawberry flavour wasn't very strong and there could have been more strawberry-ness in it.
    As PP have said, is the packaging recyclable?

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    They went down really well, the no sugar added is a good selling point as is whole milk, I really don't like giving my dc overly sugared or reduced fat products if I can.

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

    We could only find the slurpy strawberry pouches in our Morrisons, so got two of them.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    Strawberry is one of her favourite fruits and I was glad it was also a good source of calcium. I also like the squeeze pouch format as they can be drank directly or put on a spoon.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    Nothing to dislike!

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    100% recommended. I tried a little taste first and it was yummy, and I'm not kidding when I say it took longer to find and buy than for her to drink it all up! She loved it! She sucked it all from the pouch in seconds! I'll definitely be buying as a healthy dessert or snack.

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

We tried the strawberry and mango slurpies

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

Both flavours were loved by my son..he slumped it up in under a minute. He said it wasnt sweet at all but was tasty nonetheless.

3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
My son is and was unable to open it himself so would struggle with it as a lunch box treat

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

Its sugar free which is a must for me and is natural. Its a healthy snack for kids and the packaging appeals to them.

1.Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try? We had the cheesecake in strawberry and vanilla

2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
Liked the idea of it being low sugar.

3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
The texture wasn’t pleasant- quite heavy and gloopy and the flavours were indistinct. The vanilla one in particular was really tricky to open. I thought they were very expensive for the size of the product.

I wouldn’t recommend it, sorry

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try? I didn't have my vouchers to hand, so ended up trying the vanilla cheesecake and the strawberry drink, as that's what it said in one of the emails. I think though, I should have tested both cheesecakes.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried? Very flavoursome and kept my child happy as a snack
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried? Nothing.
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it? Lovely tasting product

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    The squeeze tube strawberry and vanilla cheesecake.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    Both my children liked both flavours, but preferred the strawberry. The texture was nice and thick and didn't have any nasty after taste or over-sourness that some kefir does.
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    I had no idea how my 20 month old would be able to use the tube, so spooned it out for them both instead. The vanilla cheesecake flavour could have been a bit stronger. It was a bit expensive.
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    We enjoyed it and we would recommend it for something to try as a different snack on occasion that is healthy.

    No sugar and high protein , makes a different lunch box snack .

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    Squeezy strawberry cheesecake and slurpy strawberry drink.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    They were both delicious, filling and not too sweet.
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    Squeezy cheesecake’s opening might have been a bit to big for a young child, she was confused a bit, asked for a spoon and then it was a bit messy because she ate it without a spoon. Also cheesecake’s packaging was a bit wet and sticky, it was soggy next to its lid, they were all the same, I’ve checked before buying in store.
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    My child enjoyed it, its flavour and smell. It seems convenient, easy to use on the go, it’s quite filling, enjoyable and, I believe, healthy.

My little one was a fan. She enjoyed both the products we tried and found teh squeezy pack easy to use. The more open one was a bit messier but would probably be more something I'd buy for an older child anyway (my LO is 2).

Argh. Can't see how to edit but to add:

  1. We tried both types, strawberry pouch and strawberry cheesecake squeezy
  2. We found them tasty and it's a bonus that they are better for a healthy gut too
  3. The squeezy pack is a bit too messy for my LO (2 years old)
  4. It tastes nice, the pouch is easy to use and less messy, and they have added benefits for gut health

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    We had the squeezy in vanilla and strawberry flavours

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    Really nice flavours - not overwhelming or artificial. No sourness.
    Easy way to get some more calcium into the kids, plus the packaging makes them easy to take out and about.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    We are trying to reduce our plastic consumption and there was a lot of packaging.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    Already have! They are tasty, more healthy alternative to other yoghurty snacks and very convenient

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

    We tried the strawberry cheesecake flavour squeezy. I couldn’t find the vanilla cheesecake variety.

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

    I liked the idea that they had good bacteria. The DCs liked that they looked like calippos!
    Both DCs are yoghurt fiends and liked the products.

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

    In the supermarket most of the packets had split open creating a lot of waste.
    Less keen on individual, single use packaging - we prefer a big tub of yoghurt to decant.

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

    Probably not for the above reasons although the DC did like them.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    Squeezy vanilla cheesecake and mango drink
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried? Kefir has been shown to be a healthy gut bacteria supplement that actually works, I believe a healthy gut is important and these are present in such a format that the kids think they are a treat (akin to ice cream!)
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried? The packaging on the squeezy seems to get soggy where it joins to the lid, quite a few had done it in the shop, as had one of the ones on our home delivery (yes, I've bought more, they're a great hit)
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    Yes! Because they're an actual healthy treat and my kids love them.

    They were a bit runny to drink out of the container for the 2 year old and he spilled them a bit

    Yes I would recommend as they did really taste nice

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

My children tested the Strawberry cheesecake Squeezy Snack and the Strawberry Slurpy Drink.

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

The strawberry slurpy drink was nice, the packaging was handy as we used it on an outing so didn’t take up much space.
The squeezey snack was lovely and thick, we actually ended up using a spoon to scoop it out.

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

The strawberry slurpy drink could do with a bit mor flavour


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

We loved the taste and knowing that it’s reduced sugar and all the health benefits from such a small little yoghurt.

    We tried the slurpy drinks in strawberry & mango flavours

    Gut friendly with natural flavours and a healthier snack. Children found them fun and easy to use

    I would definitely recommend. Easy to use and perfect for taking out with you. They tasted good too, no sour aftertaste. An healthier snack alternative

YesIDoLoveCrisps · 20/02/2020 21:45

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

    The slurpy drink - Mango and Strawberry flavours.

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

    I was very excited to do this as I LOVE kefir and only wished the other day that there was a child friendly version. I used my vouchers and also bought extras so that we could all try some. I liked the packaging, the colours etc and that it was ideal for lunchbox sized portions.
    The taste is great, still sweet enough to feel like a treat or dessert but not too sweet.
    Being freezeable means that it could be put in a lunchbox so it’s chilled for later or given as an alternative to ice cream.

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

    There wasn’t anything I/we disliked.

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

    Yes I would, it’s healthy, easy to use and tastes good. Thumbs up from all of us!

    It would be good to be able to buy this in bigger packets rather than singles - maybe it already is but in my local shop it was sold in singles?

    My DC liked them as an afternoon snack. They're fond of things like Innocent smoothies and Frubes squeezy yoghurts, so they were excited to try these.

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

    Nothing.

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

    Easy to eat on the go, tasty, no added sugar.

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

    Mango and strawberry slurpy.

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

    The packaging was easy to manage in a lunchbox and the ingredients are natural.

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

    Unfortunately my 8yo wasn’t keen - she said they were sour and not fruity enough. She has enjoyed Yakult before so I was surprised but she has said a firm ‘no’ to getting them again.

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

    Based on my daughter’s reaction it would be a no, although I was keen to find a good yogurt pouch for a packed lunches that isn’t too sugary so I might still recommend on that basis.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    The strawberry tube and the mango squeezy pouch.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    The mango was a nice flavour. It was my little girls favourite of the two.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    The strawberry flavour wasnt as nice. Also the tube it came in wasn't as practical for my daughter to get it out without making a mess. The top of it looked a but soggy after being stored in the fridge. I would rather it just be in a pot.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it? I woupd reccomend the mango flavour as it is a bit different. The pouch also was easier to get the product out of. I like that is had the gut friendly bacteria too.
