Arlo’s taste adventure with for aisha – Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry
Chicken and sweet potato curry was the dish of the day this lunchtime. I’ve previously tried Arlo with a few different homemade curries and every time he’s screamed and refused to eat, so to be honest I wasn’t really holding out much hope for his first taste of this Caribbean deliciousness from baby food brand, for aisha.
We had the choice of Chicken and sweet potato curry or a Date and apricot tagine with lamb, and after some serious deliberation on Arlo’s part he finally decided to plump for the chicken.
There must be something special in this dish as there were no tears, head turning or mouth opening refusals. In fact, he couldn’t finish his mouthful quick enough before his little bird mouth was open again ready to have his next nourishing bite!
Winning 11 national food awards, for aisha is unique in that all of their meat is halal, they cook with a wide range of herbs and spices which not only broadens the taste palate but helps to boost the immune system and settle little tummies.
The meal that Arlo sampled, for aisha’s Stage Three chicken and sweet potato curry, is for 10+ months old. Chunky in texture, they not only taste good (according to the umm’s and frantic high chair shuffling!) but they’re super nutritious too. Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A which is known for eye function and bone development, as well as providing potassium for their little hearts. With the option to be eaten at room temperature or heated in the microwave, these are great to be packed in the changing bag for those days when you get caught out – there’s also a good amount in there (190g) so little bellies certainly won’t go hungry.
Now we’ve found a curry style dish that he likes, these will definitely be on my monthly shopping list! Some parents may roll their eyes at me for serving ‘ready meals’ rather than home cooking – but this is one situation where I won’t be feeling mum guilt – containing only natural ingredients, no preservatives, artificial flavours or colouring, what’s there to feel guilty about?
Being a chosen supplier for Great Ormond Street Hospital I was safe in the knowledge that if it’s good enough for poorly babies in there then it’s more than good enough for my little monkey.

[Arlo was sent a range of For Aisha products for the purpose of this review. All opinions are Arlo’s, with a little input from me – he’s good at eating but his writing skills aren’t quite up to scratch]
I always made my first child’s meals from scratch but when my second came along, we found some great readymade meals for him- I don’t think we should feel guilty, especially when there’s no nasties in them. I’m glad Arlo likes the curry one too 🙂
Your son is adorable. Those eyes! These meals look great, i always had the mum guilt when i used jars with the boys but the quality is so good now that there is no need for the guilt or the endless, peeling, blending and freezing.
Good work little man! All good stuff.
We loved Aisha when lily was tiny! The flavours are so good!
I’m so excited to get Theodore on solids! The amount of food exploring we’re going to do!
Much love, Caitylis x x
Awww first of all, he’s a cutie and second Im now v broody. I had my bubba almost 10 yrs again, so I don’t remember this range being out there but I love that it’s halal and full of flavour xx

I always tried to make meals from scratch for my little ones but I also had a stash of ready meals for those times when it’s just not possible (e.g. going for a meal at someone else’s house when you don’t know how much salt, etc, they’ll be putting in the food or how big the chunks will be). These look fab if you’re looking for a halal option.
And congratulations because someone loved this post so much, they added it to the BlogCrush linky! Feel free to collect your “I’ve been featured” blog badge 🙂 #blogcrush
Aisha wasn’t readily available near us when Imogen was little but they have so many different flavours I was gutted for those quick fix meals! Seems like he really loved it!
