You don’t really find a lot of organic finger foods here in France, especially finger foods like small sized rice cakes or puffs. Finger foods that are available here contain gluten, sugar and sometimes even milk. You could opt for rice or corn cakes from health stores but those are large and can be difficult to handle. So I ended up buying my kiddy snacks from overseas, either directly from the brand itself like Organix or from iHerb.com (for HappyBaby & Plum Organic puffs – review to come soon).
Both kids have take this before – in fact, the selection above was during Eva’s infant days! Noah takes their banana biscuits and rice cakes. Organix used to make unflavoured rice cakes but have pulled that off their product list and replaced it with multigrain rice cakes. They also have included a multigrain heart shaped puff onto their list.
I have always been a fan of Organix and their “no junk” policy. This means that they do not use:
- Additives – flavourings, flavour enhancers, colouring and preservatives
- Processed sugar and hydrogenated fat
- Fillers and other ’empty’ ingredients
- The use of genetic modification in food
- Unhelpful or misleading labels
They categorize their food according to flavour (simple, exploring or adventurous) and texture (smooth, textured or chunky) so you can opt to give foods that are from other age group based on your baby’s needs and tastes. Here’s a look at the charts for their cereal, jar food and food pouches.
For their rice cakes and biscuits, the chart is in the same format but reads slightly differently.
Noah likes their raspberry & blueberry rice cakes and the small size makes it easy for him to handle and manipulate. He also enjoys their banana biscuits and can finish two to three at one go! Talk about going bonkers over snacks!
When it comes to satisfying a preschooler’s snack cravings, this is THE store for corn puffs. The ones available here are salty and oily (more for adults than kids) so I definitely prefer buying from Organix. I find them to be inexpensive as I get them in bags of four 15 gm packets for less than €2 (excluding shipping). People who have tried them – adults, that is – love the fact that it’s packed small, has no salt and is baked. Eva has tried their spicy tomato stars, saucy tomato noughts & crosses, cheese & herb, and tomato, cheese and herb puffs. For a breakfast treat or a teatime snack, there are organic cereal bars like cocoa & raisin, carrot cake, raspberry & apple as well as blackcurrant. All very yummylicious and healthy!
Since I’m in France, I buy mine directly from the Organix online store and shipping is based on weight. If you’re located in Singapore, you should be able to find some of these at Cold Storage and organic stores like Supernature. If you’re in Malaysia, Jaya Grocer, Cold Storage are some of the places where you could find these.
