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. 


Pancakes with Strawberries. 


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. 


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


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. 


Frozen Apple and Strawberry popsicle.


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.

    The pouches are so handy – we use the fruit ones as a special treat drink on days when we know M’s likely to need an energy/mood boost; the veg ones make good pasta sauces, too.

    I love the way the hamper is presented, love a proper hamper! I can’t stand the idea of eating babyfood, although if it wasn’t babyfood I’d happily eat fruit puree. Odd 😉

      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!
