Did you have any idea that there was such a thing as International Carrot Day? No, me neither! It was recently celebrated on the 4th April and the lovely people at Organix sent the boys some Goodies Carrot Stix and Goodies Carrot Cake Oaty Bars to celebrate with. But before we bring you our review, here are some fun facts about carrots:
- Carrots were one of the first vegetables ever grown by man
- Carrots aren’t always orange, they can be purple, red, white or yellow too!
- The carrot that Bugs Bunny eats is called the Danvers carrot
- The carrot is a member of the parsley family
N eats carrots, but J doesn’t at the moment so I thought these would be a great way to get the goodness into him. The Carrot Stix are just what they say, baked carrot flavour sticks with a sprinkling of coriander, and much healthier than an average packet of snack crisps. The Oaty Bars are baked using juicy fruit and wholegrain oats.
The boys shared the Carrot Stix at snack time and both gobbled them up so they were a winner. I had a try too and they were quite nice, with the coriander it gave them more flavour than just carrot. They have been eating the Oaty Bars as snacks too and are really handy to keep in their bag when going out. They’re just the right size for a small child and lovely & soft with a definite carrot flavour. J asks for another one when he is finished so he definitely likes them! And N gobbled his down too, like with most things…
