What’s New At Asda?

My love of Asda won’t come as news to any of you. I get my food delivered by them every week, and I spend my time drooling over the beautiful clothes in George for me, and then inevitably go off and buy something for Little Man instead. I love keeping an eye out for new products for Little Man, and I have three here to show you.

Annabel Karmel Porridge & Apple Biscuit Bakes
When these appeared on my doormat I was a little sceptical. The idea of biscuits that taste of porridge was a bit “out there” for me – surely the only thing tasting of porridge should be porridge in a bowl? Apparently not. I nervously handed one over to Little Man, half expecting it to be spat back out at me, and watched in amazement as he finished it off, and promptly requested “More?”.
Being Annabel Karmel endorsed you know these biscuits will be perfect for little children. They can be eaten as they are from 12 month, but can be mixed with their usual milk earlier than that for breakfast. They come in a box of 5 handy 3 portion packs, so can be slipped into a bag or a coat pocket for outings and walks.

Annabel Karmel Carrot & Sweetcorn Rice & Corn Snacks
My Little Man hates rice cakes. He always has. He chews them for a while, then spits it out, usually whilst moving around the room. In fact the only rice cake I have ever seen him finish is one belonging to his girlfriend – but other peoples food always is nicer isn’t it? Due to this I wasn’t really expecting him to appreciate these, and to be honest I was planning on handing them over to his rice cake loving girlfriend when we next saw her.
One evening dinner was unusually rejected – one of those days all round – so instead of giving him some fruit instead I thought I’d stick to the savoury idea and opened these Rice & Corn Snacks. Half a pack later it turns out that he now DOES like rice cakes! Another snack time winner for us!

Little Angels Baby Wipes with Built-In Pot Of Nappy Cream
Nappy rash is a bit of a nightmare in our house. Little Man doesn’t get it very often, but when he does it tends to flare up out of nowhere. It often goes from none¬†existent to intensely painful within half an hour. When I’m at home that’s no problem – Sudocrem at the ready – but when I’m out its a nightmare as I have invariably forgotten our spare pot. Asda have come up with a brilliant solution.
Their new design baby wipes now come with a small pot of nappy cream built it. It’s not impregnated on every wipe, it is simply a small pot built into the packet which sits alongside the opening for the wipes. You can’t open the nappy cream pot without opening the wipes so there is no danger of spillage within your bag. Both lids are very securely fastened. Whilst I did think this might be a gimmick I was proved wrong just earlier today when I changed my Little Man’s nappy at our local supermarket and lo and behold one red bottom, and no pot of nappy cream. I then remembered that I’d popped the new Little Angels wipes in my changing bag and there was my nappy cream. Result! Not only is it convenient it also works, which to be honest is the most important thing. A layer was applied to Little Man’s bottom and at the next change the redness has gone down already. Genius product.
