A Yorkshire mum of twohas launched a unique ‘mix and match’ range of frozen food products to help make toddler mealtimes easy and stress free for busy parents.
Originally an accountant, Hanna Diley had the idea for Benji’s Bites during the first lockdown after she had her second baby. In that sleep deprived newborn stage, she still had a two-year old to feed, so started batch cooking – but in a ‘Benji’s Bites’ way!
Benji’s Bites exists to help busy mums and dads give their little ones quick, tasty and wholesome meals, which can be easily adapted to suit their children’s tastes and appetites.
Hanna said: “When I had my second little boy, Reuben, he was a lot harder than Benji and I really struggled with the lack of sleep, especially looking after a 2 year old as well. I had no inspiration, time, or energy to think about cooking my toddler a healthy balanced meal everyday so I started batch cooking and freezing food.”
The unique “Quick’n’Mix” frozen cubes deliver choice, nutrition and flexibility, making mealtimes fun for kids and fast for parents. The meals are frozen separately in small 30g cubes so parents can choose both the meal combination and portion size, helping to reduce the stress of feeding little ones. Simply choose the number and combination of cubes you want, pop them in the microwave and you have a healthy, tasty meal ready in minutes.
There are 12 products in the range, with a mix of ‘mains’, ‘carbs’ and ‘veggie sides’, and 75% of the range is plant-based. They have been developed with dietitians to ensure they are nutritionally balanced.
The meals are recommended for ages 1-5 years so are great for feeding siblings of different ages, especially as you can choose different portion sizes for each child.
The cubes come in 100% compostable pouches, ingredients are responsibly sourced, and all delivery packaging is fully reusable or recyclable. Great for kids, parents and the planet!
