Big Thanks to Bega for sending over some Bega Stringers for our little family to review!
They came in this cute little pack with a cooler bag, Bega hats and cute little Bega Stringers pens:
We were given 3 flavours: Original, Cheddar and Swiss. Sophie's all time favourite was the Cheddar :)
So here's the thing - those of you who know me IRL know that I am very structured with Sophie's eating.
She has set meal times and snack times. She has protein with lunch and simple vege & carb based food with dinner, fruit for snacks and milk in the morning and before bed. I'm also big on giving her home cooked food. She's a great eater and a fantastic night time sleeper and I really believe a lot of her meal planning relates to that. It's not for everyone, but it works for us at the moment - and I'm a big believer in 'if it works for you, do it your way'.
I'm also very careful reading the nutritional panels on the back of food labels. I'm definitely not an expert, I just prefer her foods at the moment to be lower in salt and sugar, with no artificial flavours or colours if possible.
I thought Bega Stringers were highly processed cheese and expected them to be higher in salt & sugar than the full cream tasty cheese I was already giving Soph, so when I got them I was pleasantly surprised to find they are made with natural cheese, have no artificial flavours or colours that the salt and sugar content in them was around the same as the brand I was using.
I also love that their website has nutritional information on it so that if you are really into researching it like I am, the info is available to you before you even get to the shops. You can find some of that info here.
I'll be buying them in the future - As well as being a heallthier option, they are extremely handy for packing when you'll be out and about with your little one/s for the day. And I eat quite a few myself. Hey, everyone needs calcium ;)
