Chewsday Review- Oat-ly Oat Milk Barista Edition

My Chewsday Review of Pea Protein milk gathered a lot of interest. It’s a good one for children with cow’s milk protein intolerance and soy allergy. But lots of you were concerned with the lack of froth-ability if you had to use it in your coffee. So, today’s review features another popular milk alternative- Oat-ly Oat Milk Barista Edition (this is different to regular Oat-ly milk). How does this compare to cow’s milk and pea protein milk? Let’s see… 🔶Ingredients: 🔹Oat base (water, oats 10%), rapeseed oil, acidity regulator (dipotassium phosphate), calcium carbonate, calcium phosphates, iodised salt, vitamins (D2, riboflavin, B12). 🔹Rapeseed oil is another name for canola oil.

Chewsday Review- Barilla Chickpea Casarecce

Each week in my memberships (Baby Mealtimes and Toddler Mealtimes) we have a ‘challenge’ food to offer our kids. It’s all about inspo and variety.

Chewsday Review- Australia’s Own Like Milk Pea Protein

You might have caught my rant last week about cow’s milk and why I get SO MAD about people telling you not to give it to your children. You can watch the rant on both Facebook and Instagram if you missed it. Anyway, as I said, we WOULD avoid cow’s milk for babies and children if they have an allergy. Yet interestingly, there’s very few nutritionally equivalent milks to cow’s milk for these kids. Most are missing the protein, the fat or the calcium content of cow’s milk. Today’s Chewsday review features Australia’s Own Like Milk, made from pea protein. Here’s what I think. 🔶Ingredients: 🔹Water, pea protein isolate (4%), sunflower oil, minerals and vitamins (calcium phosphate, Vitamin B2, Vi
