Little Journey, Baby Food at ALDI!

Feeding a child is frustrating. Allegedly it takes 12 times for them to try certain foods before they will eat it. Tommy will love something one day, so I’ll go out and buy it in bulk and then refuse to eat it the next day.

Does he not like the taste? Is he not hungry? Is it not warm enough?

And then, when he doesn’t eat it, you know who does? I do. Even at 9 months old, I’m already eating Tommy’s leftovers. For now they are things like broccoli, eggs or peanut butter toast, not baby food purees obvi. Those get tossed if uneaten 24 hours after they are opened.

I think the food introduction phase kills me because I see how much food we waste. For every pouch I buy that Tommy refuses, I see myself throwing out $2 each time. I sorta feel the same way when I change his diaper and I feel like I didn’t really need too.

Luckily, I discovered a cheaper solution for trying and finding keepers

I’ve long been a fan of ALDI for their no frills store experience that passes on savings to their customers. Their prices are incredible. So I was excited when they recently announced the arrival of Little Journey, an award-winning line of baby products featuring everything from newborn diapers to wipes, formula and organic puree pouches.

The best part is that you’ll find a growing list of premium products exclusively available at ALDI at prices up to 50% less than those at traditional grocery stores*. So hopefully once you find a few things your kiddo likes, you can keep buying them while staying on budget.

This makes going through diapers faster than you thought humanly possible not so bad.

Diapers at ALDI range in price from $4.99 to $12.49 depending on the size and pack quantity. They boast a stretchable waist and side panels, dual leg cuffs, 12-hour leak protection, vitamin E and aloe and are hypoallergenic.

We tried them out and are happy to report back that Tommy had no leakage, blow outs or rashes!

I was impressed by the wipes especially. For a pack of 72, they cost $1.29. As someone who uses wipes on everything, this is an amazing deal.

I am still breastfeeding Tommy but I can imagine that the formula is a huge saving compared to Enfamil or Similac at a regular grocery store.

My favorites are the organic pouches which each cost only $0.79 per 4 oz. Tommy runs hot or cold on pouches but he really likes these especially the apple, pear and spinach! They are made with pure fruit and vegetable combinations, without genetically engineered ingredients and BPA free packaging.

I like pouches because they introduce vegetables like spinach to Tommy that he otherwise wouldn’t be eating on a regular basis. I know I can make food from scratch with spinach but a good pouch is easy.

Tommy also is really into eating with his own fingers so the puffs and munchers are awesome. Both cost $1.39 for a 1.48 oz package. Tommy would eat only cheese puffs if I’d let him.

If you haven’t been to ALDI before, you are in for a shocking surprise as to how affordable grocery shopping really can be. Some things to note before you go is that you’ll need a quarter to grab a shopping cart at the start of your experience, your own bags and that the unique shelving is to save money. Everything they do is to reduce their costs to run a business to keep the products priced low.

You can find an ALDI located near you by checking this location finder. If you haven’t been, you really ought to go and check it out. They have some of the best European chocolate! Curious what it looks like to shop at ALDI? I shot this video a few years ago.

What our MadeForMums Awards Judges say about Lupilu Stage 1 Fruit and Veg Pouch – Carrot, Apple and Parsnips:

“The Lupilu Apple, Carrot and Parsnip pouch was a great hit with our little boy, he loved it served cold and warmed through. The design makes it easy to use on the go as well as it can be squeezed straight onto a spoon. The easy screw cap also means it can be resealed if they don't want it all in one sitting - the product also did not leak when we tested it,” Mum of 1, Emily.

“I really like that this blend contains 2 veg to 1 fruit, and that whilst they are all naturally sweet foods, the overall taste is not overly so. The size and shape of the pouch is really convenient as with all of its competitors, but what marks it out for me is the very pleasing price tag. Having a 19-month-old we do not tend to use pouches any more, although when out and about and getting a bit whingey I do know a pouch will placate him - quite convinced he thinks it's a smoothie. I would not hesitate to recommend Lupilu Pouches,” Mum of 2, Katy.

It would also be useful for older children who could eat the fruit straight from the pack. I tasted the product and it was pleasant and has a lovely smooth texture for little mouths. It's useful that it can be resealed and kept in the fridge for 48 hours.” Mum of 1, Kathryn

“My son loved this. It has a great texture and flavour and the pouch makes for easy storage. The fact it can be used for more than one meal is a huge plus – we add this to his breakfast porridge which he now wolfs down. It is a great price and is easily as good quality as the more expensive brands of this type. I would definitely recommend.” Mum of 4, Jo

How much food costs in UK supermarkets

Prices in England are biting and regular visits even ordinary cafes and fast food restaurants can literally be expensive get by. If you are staying in an apartment, homestay or residence and have access to the kitchen, then you can save a lot on food. In the article you get acquainted with food prices in England and find out where to go for oil and bread, and where - for delicacies and organic goods. At the end is a lexicon which will help you navigate the store, as well as find discounts and profitable offer.

Where to buy groceries in England

In the central part of any British city there are small supermarkets. If you are going to England for a couple of weeks, their range will satisfy you. These shops stock basic products like milk, bread and eggs, convenience foods, and a small selection of fruits and vegetables. Tesco, Lidl, Asda, Aldi, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Morrison's, Cooperative are among the main UK supermarket chains.

In search of fresh vegetables and fruits, you can go both to the supermarket and to street vendors, whose stalls are usually located near the metro and in other busy places.

For a large-scale purchase of groceries for a week, the British, like our compatriots, go to the outskirts of the city to large shopping malls - retail parks. There you will find stores of the same chains as in the center, but already in the "extended version".

Another option to stock up on food, and at the same time enjoy the flavor of street trading, is to go to the market. All markets have their own schedule, so it’s better to find out the days and hours of work on the Internet or from locals in advance.

Despite the fact that corporations are pushing out private entrepreneurs, there are still independent shops in England, which are commonly called cornershop (literally: corner shop). They survive, as a rule, thanks to the round-the-clock mode of operation. You can always find high-demand goods in them, for example, milk, eggs, bread, drinks, tobacco. Prices in private shops are usually inflated, so the British go there only when necessary, for example, to buy a bottle of water, cigarettes or breakfast products.

The cheapest British supermarkets: Asda, Lidl, Aldi, Morrisons

Perhaps the cheapest supermarket is Asda. The stores of the chain are usually hypermarkets (in England the term superstore is used), and therefore are most often located on the outskirts of the city. Morrisons hypermarkets can also be found there. Their prices are also quite affordable.

In residential areas one can easily find one of the German Lidl or Aldi stores. Usually these are large supermarkets that have everything you need - from fresh products to household chemicals - at low prices. Both chains are focused on quickly serving a large flow of people, so don't even think about putting the "punched" goods into packages right away. Just put everything in the cart, pay and make room at the checkout for the next customer.

British supermarkets that are always nearby: Tesco, Sainsbury's, Co-op

Unlike Germany's Lidl and Aldi, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Co-op are UK-based, so their stores are found at every turn. On the periphery you can find large stores, and in the center there are mini-format supermarkets: Tesco Express and Sainsbury's Local. On the shelves you will find a daily assortment of fresh vegetables and fruits, ready-made salads and sandwiches, a large selection of semi-finished products, frozen foods and canned food, a basic set of cosmetics and household chemicals. Here you can find everything you need for cooking - oil, spices, sauces, etc.

Gourmet & Organic Stores: Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Whole Foods

The Waitrose network closely monitors its reputation and quality of service, but also sets appropriate prices. On the shelves you can find a good range of fresh organic products: fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meat products, seafood. The shops also have a good selection of alcohol, including English wines. Despite the pricing policy, Waitrose deserves the attention of even a budget buyer: here you can buy products at promotions and discounts without the risk of getting a low-quality product.

Marks & Spencer, or simply M&S, offers everything from spices to baked goods under its own label. On the shelves you will not find soda or chips of famous brands, but you will find an excellent selection of ready-to-eat food: fruit and vegetable salads, sandwiches, snacks, desserts, pastries and convenience foods. The company pays great attention to branding and packaging, which makes M&S products look very appetizing. Brits literally flock here for lunch. However, not everyone is sure that the prices at M&S ​​are justified: many products in terms of their taste are no different from products of more affordable brands.

The American supermarket chain Whole Foods is aimed at wealthy British people who prefer organic products. Retail outlets are mainly located in prestigious areas of the capital. In stores you can find fresh dairy, meat, fish products, a huge number of healthy, dietary, vegetarian, vegan and hypoallergenic products.
