#MamiaDaysOut Challenge

For quite a while now, we've been huge fans of Aldi, especially since one came to be built in our home town around a year ago. I was quite skeptical at first, but after a few trips round where I managed to buy a whole week's shop for less then £40, and I was converted. We still use other supermarkets, but I would say the bulk of our food comes from Aldi. We've been especially impressed with the baby products, especially the nappies which are a great low cost alternative to Pampers.

Anyway, we were lucky enough to be sent a cute hamper full of goodies for our youngest child, which is especially handy as we've already got a fun Halloween game planned using the hamper basket!

Fun hamper,  great excitement when it arrived.
When we opened the hamper, we were thrilled to see a huge selection of baby goodies, including rice cakes, a multitude of healthy fruit pouches and pots, and a water based fruit drink. Basically everything you'd need for a fun day out when it's tricky to prepare baby good on the move.

So on Friday, we put the food to the test by taking our baby out to quite a posh restaurant in Harrogate called Drum and Monkey as it was my birthday. Baby girl was really well behaved thankfully, as it was one of those restaurants with a low ceiling and was generally really quiet and full of elderly retired people. Not usually the sort of place we take baby, but the food was pretty amazing and I was lucky enough to have lobster. It was my birthday after all. However there wasn't anything really suitable for baby to eat - even the pasta had chilli in it, but luckily we had our Mamia food! So all was well.

From all of the pouches and pots, our daughter definitely preferred the pots over the pouches - I guess she's maybe a bit old for the pouches and the pot is a bit like a yoghurt - but less likely to end up in her hair. All of the food is 100% organic, so there's every reason to be happy about it, like our girl was here. I love the fact that these pouches and pots can just be packed for days out, holidays, or just going to the park to keep baby happy and healthy. Perfectly easy and a fraction of the price of other pouches like Ella's Kitchen - and just as nice.

Later we used the Aldi nappies and thought they were great especially in terms of the value they give. I would say that Pampers are longer lasting and don't require changing so often, but they are also double the price, if not more!

We will definitely keep shopping at Aldi as it offers great value for money and great quality products too. I just wish they did home shopping!
