Today is International World Pasta Day!

Pasta has long been a favourite dish for children and adults alike; highly nutritious and a great energy source, served either with a vegetable sauce or just with some cheese, it is a quick, simple, delicious meal that we all enjoy. With gluten, or without, there is a pasta for each of us. To celebrate the special occasion of today, we have taken a look at what each¬†kind of pasta says¬†about¬†you** but we leave the pasta shapes and the Mie Noodles to your imagination – let us know what you come up with ūüėČ

Spaghetti: Warm hearted

You are also open-minded and sensitive, and you always listen when someone needs you.

5. Gemelli: Creativealb-gold-organic-strozzapreti

7. Rotini (Or in our case, Fusilli) : Fearlesscsm_buchweizen_mit_currysauce_02_cf54be97aa

Holle's organic apple and pear snack bar for babies and toddlersThis is just a quick post to let you know that Holle’s recently launched fruit bars for babies have arrived at the Ulula warehouse and are now ready to ship.

The Organic Apple and Banana and Organic Apple and Pear bars are made of 100% organic fruit, honey and spelt and taste absolutely delicious, see our recent article announcing their launch for further details. These natural and healthy finger foods are ideal for babies from 12 months and if experience on the continent is anything to go by they will be flying off the shelves – so make sure you place your orders early.

Let us know what you think of the new organic fruit bars – more importantly how does your baby find these new additions to their finger food repetoire?

Holle Organic Fruit Bars for Babies – Coming Soon

Another update from the annual Organic and Natural Products exhibition at Olympia. Holle have recently added two new fruit bars for babies to their organic baby food range – perfect finger food complements to the sugar free Organic Baby Spelt Biscuits and Baby Spelt Rusks.


Holle Fruit Bars for Babies –
The Taste Test

And now to the most important question Рwhat are they like? Holle have launched two fruity bars РOrganic Apple and Banana and Organic Apple and Pear. During our time at the exhibition we sampled several of each (as well as  similar products from another company) and brought home a small supply to give to family and friends. Both bars are made of 100% organic fruit, honey and spelt and, in our opinions, Holle have got the balance just right. The bars are very fruity and are firm enough to handle but without being tough to bite Рthey taste simply delicious. Both bars are naturally sweet enough to give toddlers a healthy treat or snack while keeping enough of the tang of the real fruit so that your child develops a love for the taste of the real thing too Рsuperb!

For now the Holle fruit bars are currently only available on the continent – when they were launched two months ago in Germany, Austria and Switzerland they proved so popular that the whole production run sold out immediately. We at Ulula have placed our order and are pleased to be the only UK stockist of this great finger food. Watch this space for availability.
