Ella’s Kitchen is a healthy winner + GIVEAWAY

I have said this time and time again; everything has changed so much in the baby department in terms of selections and availability. While it has only been 4 years since my previous baby it seems that so much has evolved and changed directions. Baby food for example has expanded and the options that are now available are incredible.


Gone are the days of having preservative filled jars or having to make meals from scratch to give your baby the best quality food. You can now purchase readily made organic meals! Ella’s Kitchen is one of the wonderful brands that cater to parents who only want the best for their children. Ella’s Kitchen was actually created by Ella’s dad, Paul Lindley who was so passionate in his belief that his daughter along with every other child should have the opportunity to eat healthy; and so Ella’s Kitchen was born. I love that I can walk into my pantry and choose from a large selection of meals and textures in conveniently portioned squeeze tubes and know that my 6 month old is getting nothing but the best. Nothing but 100% organic, nothing but real food and most importantly nothing but great flavours! Ella’s Kitchen pride themselves on the fact that there is no added sugar, salt or water, no additives or thickeners, no GM, no gluten, wheat, dairy or lactose, no lumps or bits and nothing artificial in their products.

 I will be honest and say that some of the meals I was a little unsure of flavour wise like the spinach, apple and swedes for example however Ella’s dad knows what little ones like because Hadley absolutely loved it!! She loved it so much that the spoon wasn’t fast enough for her and she ended up eating straight from the squeeze pouch. There are 7 flavours available in stage 1 (from 4 months) and 2 breakfast pouches for 6 months. Each and every flavour is unique, tasty and full of absolute goodness!! Ella’s kitchen (stage 1) is available at Coles for only $1.99 and in my eyes this is incredible value for money. We get approx. 3 feeds per pouch of this healthy natural baby food.

For your chance to try these for the first time or stock up on your babies’ favourite food enter the giveaway below. Prize contains: 1x upcycled lunch bag, Ella’s Kitchen bib and a selection of Ella’s Kitchen pouches (total value approx. $50).

    A snail hand picked from the garden. By the time I flew across the yard to get it out, it was gone, swallowed….boy did I dry retch at that.

    A guinea pig pooh. It was like slow motion watching him pick it up off the grass, knowing he was going to eat it and trying to get to to him to stop him on time. It was disgusting, especially when he announced it was a ‘tana (sultana)’ before scoffing it down.

    I’m a vegetarian clean freak and nearly died when my then 17 month old son was munching on a moth ewwwwww. How did I know it was a moth? By the half a wing sticking out of his mouth! Needless to say the vacuum cleaner never had a harder workout then that afternoon!

    As embarrassing & gross as it is.. I have to tell my story…..my daughter was about 10mths old & walking, her bigger sister 3yrs let her out the back and I was doing a load of washing… I asked hubby to go check on the girls he found them out the back, he picked miss 10mths up and brought her inside saying she has done a poo and is eating peanut butter, I said to him I hadn’t given her peanut butter, so he put his finger in her mouth to his horror pulled it out and it was Dog Poo…. I spewed all over the place… Hubby was heaving and was wiping her mouth out with baby wipes!! Too this day I still feel sick when I think about it 🙁

    My little man has only just started on solids, so the weirdest thing he has possibly eaten would be either boogies or “eye sleep” that he’s wiped into his mouth while in bed… Whoopsie!!

    Old gum. I don’t know how or where she got it, but she was upset and I found it stuck to her gums. I was able to fish it out despite her locked lips lol.

    Anything that crawled, my son popped it in his mouth, ants, beetles, things that I cant name!! lol The faces he pulled , where memorable and hilarious. Sometimes I would find dead bugs in his pocket , for a feast later!!! ha ha ha , Wishing you a merry xmas lovely 🙂

    One Day when I was outside hanging the washing on the line and I saw my son inside next to the Window happily smiling at me I then saw him look down to the Ground and Pick up a Fly and put in right into his Mouth, I ran inside to get it off him but it was already too late he had a lovely lunch of Fly.

    Sushi when he was 2 — I thought that was strange for a 2 year old anyway!

    One of my boys currently requests jam and cheese sandwiches. Jam and cheese, together on one sandwich! You know, it would probably be pretty good. I may even try it myself if I can get past the ‘ew’ factor of it.

    Ha! Which one the usual petfood or bugs or the really eloquent concoctions of popping candy & tobassco sauce my lovely brother fed them?? The strangest things my kids have eaten are pretty run of the mill, it’s the sick love of brussel sprouts, broccoli & guava that trips people out, my 7yr old & baby loves it!!

  21. Christy van Heerden
    15/12/2013 / 8:15 pm

    I honestly don’t know – my toddler’s hand is quicker than mum’s eye. He’s ridiculously fast at swallowing when he knows he’s eating something unsanctioned by mum or dad and he’s been busted. I try not to think about the horrible things he’s probably eaten!

    I found my little miss (9 months) chowing down on a dead frog out on our patio just last week…even though it looked like a fresh dead frog, I gave her mouth a thorough washing out!

    My toddler will eat just about anything that you put in front of her. But one of her favourites this winter was avocado, peanut butter and cheese on corn thins. I was never brave enough to try them, but she couldn’t get enough of them.

    Mashed potato and cracked black pepper with a swirl of tomato sauce – strangely enough it was a favourite first food!

    I will always remember finding Brussels sprout in my 10 day old daughter’s mouth- her older sister was sitting next to her with a huge smile on her cheeky little face!
    Strangely enough she always loved Brussels sprouts and when we were out shopping would ask for them to be added to the trolley- other people would stare lol.
    Now she’s an adult and is teaching her little man to love veges so at least her first taste of them didn’t put her off!

    Dog food, more specifically, dry dog food. The toddler noticed she’d taken a liking to it and would try to smuggle it inside to feed her :/

    It always made me take it personally when she’d refuse dinner. Dog food must taste better?!

    My daughter is only nearly 4 months old so hasn’t had to opportunity to eat weird things like the other children here, so far the strangest things she’s eaten are her mittens, her teething rings and her favourite elephant toy.
    Does that count? My daughter has nibbled on an elephant!

    In Malaysia, anchovies are quite popular – so even their baby food contain anchovies! So one day we decided to give the little one a try and she loved it! It has never occurred to me that anchovy can yummy baby food! 😉

    When my grandaughter was 1 she was trying everything. the one thing she loved which I thought was strange was Black Olives.

    Orange marmalade and (British) marmite sandwiches. People recoil in horror when I tell them about this combination but it was a childhood favourite of mine and I am still quite partial to it 🙂

    My son used to eat rocks, no matter how many times I would say “yucky” or “we don’t eat rocks”, nothing could deter him.

    My son used to love feeding our dog each night….until I found out the reason was because he was having a little nibble on the way to the bowl! He used to take the dry food out to the dog and fill the bowl. He told us that he was not eating that food, wrong! As he smiled it was all in his teeth. The evidence was right there!

  39. Linda Steabben

    He ate snails,
    … unfortunately not the gourmet French variety, just the garden type before I could stop him, … and then I freaked in case they’d been feasting on snail killer!

  40. Laura Scriven

    He managed to catch a cockroach and I caught he eating it. Too much Bear Grylls watching by Dad I think!

    I found little miss 18mnths outside once with a small pile of empty snail shells. She was quite happy finding snails, using her little finger to scoop out the snail slug and shoving it down her hatch!

    when our daughter was 1yrs old hubby would hand her his pickles from his burger me expecting a yuk face and spit out but no she loved them now she is nearly 13yrs old he still hands her the pickles she still loves them

  44. Gemma Westacott Blair
    02/01/2014 / 1:55 pm

    My Mr Moo will basically give anything a try, from leaves, flowers, rocks, bugs, bark etc. You need eyes in the back of your head and super fast reflexes! Hubby and I are like ninjas nowadays, when it comes to flicking dangerous/gross things away.

    But the oddest thing that he LOVES to eat (and is allowed!) is olives. Devours them like they’re lollies, and gets quiet upset if anyone else tries to eat one! Lol

    My 2 yo daughter put 2 slugs, 1 snail shell and 5 ants into her pumpkin risotto because she was adding “spice” like “mummy does”…eww yuck

    My son got into the eggs. He smashed a couple on the floor and ate some of it. He was fine afterwards though.

    When my eldest was 2 he ate a thick slice of a jalapeno when we were having pizza. I was having to pick them out because they were so hot and I starting freaking out when he grabbed it and put it in his mouth. But he just ate it and looked at me as though I was the crazy one.

    My son at a snail the moment we got back for holidays when he was one year old. He had a mouth full of BLACK with bits of shell. I carried him screaming to his Dad as I am sooooo terrified of slugs and snails. Such a lovely homecoming!

    My little boy will eat anything from dog food to green tomatoes off the vine. But his favourite ‘food’ is dirt, no matter what else is around, if he can find some dirt then it is straight in his mouth!

    My son, when he was a wee one, ate a snail, it was just like in the movies, when time slows down before the bomb goes off, well that was me trying to get to him before it went in his mouth. Alas I was too slow and down it went! Still makes me gag to this day!
