I’m always on the look out for healthy snacks suitable for my daughter.
My toddler daughter was sent a range of Little Dish Pop Pops to taste test.

What are Pop Pops?
A brand new ‘popped’ circular savoury snack.
Packed with protein, fibre and low in saturated fat.
They contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
Pop Pops are made with 40% chickpeas.
Available in four savoury recipes – Original, Cheese, Sweet Red Pepper and Tomato.
What do we like?
Original – ☆☆☆☆☆
This recipe was lovely with my soup, thrown in by my daughter who demanded that I must try. My daughter says that these were yummy.
She ate these with grated cheese.
Cheese – ☆☆☆☆☆
My daughter loves this recipe on its own.
It’s a good between meal snack.
Or part of her lunch.
Sweet Red Pepper – ☆☆☆☆
Though these are aimed at children I quite liked this recipe myself!
My daughter loved this to start with but says she prefers one of the above.
We’re going to be creative with the rest of the packet.
Tomato – ☆☆☆☆
My daughter loves this recipe. She sandwiched raisins between them to make ‘small sandwiches’.
The cheese recipe is my daughter’s number one favourite. Followed closely by the other 3 recipes.
Overall these recipes are delicious. Not only can they be eaten as part of her lunch meal but used with dips or in my daughter’s case to make mini sandwiches.
The resealable Zoo Crew stickers on the back of the packets are useful when on the go – my daughter likes to wear them.
Other ideas we are going to try:
• For snacks at my daughter’s birthday tea party
• With our picnics
• With a variety of dips: cottage cheese, hummus
Crisps are often my go to snack for both my daughter and myself. Which is fine as the odd treat, but aren’t very healthy.
Pop Pops 17g bag provides a source of protein and is high in fibre.
They also provide vital nutrients for growing bones and bodies.
They are low in saturated fat and contain significantly less salt than the average bag of crisps*.
Where to buy?
Pop Pops will be joining Go Gos, Little Dish award winning mini wholegrain oat and seed biscuits, in the baby aisle.
Available in individual 17g bags priced at 75p (RRP) and sold in Sainsbury’s and Tesco from the end of February 2017, with other major retailers to follow.
* A 17g bag of Pop Pops contains 26% less salt than the average salt content across bags of Hula Hoops, Wotsits and Quavers – all crisp brands parents have told Little Dish they serve to their children.
