A #MamiaDaysOut Day Out with Aldi

Last week, we were sent a hamper by the folks at Aldi as part of their #MamiaDaysOut challenge to use their products whilst on a day out.

We’ve always liked Aldi; their nappies being the best we’ve used (well, that T has used), so we were keen to try their kids food. 


We’ve never done any form of puree, only baby-led weaning, so when part of the hamper contained purees we were curious as to how we could get involved.

If you follow us on Instagram you’ll see I’m quite a fan of baking and making a lot of meals from scratch, so I decided for our day out that I would use some of the items in T’s baking as well – setting us up for the day. 


Breakfast

Pancakes with Strawberries. 

Recipe:

1 Purée pouch (we chose bananas and apples), one egg, 2tbsp of plain flour (or enough until you create a thickish batter), 1/2 tsp of baking powder. 

Heat a pancake pan on a medium-low heat and dollop 3-4 pancakes onto the pan. Cook until holes form in the batter and then flip. Cook for a further minute. 


Lunch

Cheese and Cucumber Sandwiches with veggies, fruit, and an apple and pear pot with yoghurt. 

Dinner

Grilled Chicken with Carrot and Parsnip mash, and corn.

Recipe for mash:

Boil and mash 2-3 medium potatoes and mix in 1/2 the purée pouch to replace any milk/butter. 

Dessert

Frozen Apple and Strawberry popsicle.


Snacks

Mini Rice cakes and homemade oat, fruit and nut bars. 

Other ideas include; Fruit Purée on toast or a dip for apples, pineapples or banana pieces. 

All in all, I found using Aldi’s new range a success, with the pouches going quite far in a recipe. I also liked how tasty they are on their own and could easily have one myself as a snack or mixer with yoghurt. 

We still have a few in the cupboard, so pop over to our Instagram to see how we use them over the next few months.

      Hahaha! I think it’s all about how it’s labelled. The apple and pear pots are lovely, but I’m sure I’d get a few looks eating one at work.

      Thanks – I didn’t think the pancakes would work but they did. I certainly didn’t feel guilty polishing a few off! Haha!
