Review: Go! Kidz

Northern Beaches mum Nicola got the opportunity to trial the range of healthy children’s meals from Go! Kidz…

Are your children picky eaters? Mine is! My 4 year old daughter only ever wants to eat pasta and tomato sauce. Not only does it drive me crazy but I am worried that she is not getting any nutrients… enter Go! Kidz. We got the opportunity for her to try a variety of meals, and I am very excited to know she will eat other things!

Go! Kidz make super healthy ready-to-eat children’s meals that are tasty, fast and affordable. I love that the meals are child friendly meals, but as they are created with a dietician, they are also healthy!

As a working mum with 2 young kids, I felt pressure was taken off me as I know that my daughter will be eating healthy meals. The meals were delivered directly to our door, contactless. I love the fact that there are 2 options for cooking all the meals – oven and microwave. Also, my daughter being only 4, every portion was actually enough for 2 meals, making the cost per portion even better to my wallet. I also like that the packaging is also very fun and perfect for children.

Below are the meals we got to trial…

Chicken nuggets
Health rating: 4.5 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
To me these chicken nuggets look amazing as they are clearly a healthier version than what we buy from the supermarkets. I cooked the chicken nuggets in the oven and I was pleasantly surprised that my daughter ate them without any fuss. I love the fact that they are made with free range and hormone free chicken breast rolled in Panko based crumbs.

Lasagne
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
The lasagne was a great size – we were able to get 2 dinners from this portion. My daughter loved both the mince and pasta, and I noticed that it wasn’t as rich as a standard supermarket bought lasagne which I think was perfect for my daughter’s more sensitive palate. She ate majority of the meal and I was lucky enough to be able to have some too.

Moussaka
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
Like the lasagne, the size was big enough for us to use for 2 meals. Being very fussy, my daughter did question the vegetables, as they were visible, but when she tried it, she ate them! I got a small little taste too and it was very yummy.

Meatballs & Pasta
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
This meal is one of our go to meals as my daughter will eat it. I love the idea that it the meatballs are full of vegetables and supergrains. She didn’t even realise. This was a big hit!

Veggie Loaded Mac n Cheese
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
This meal is very low in sugar, but still tasted very sweet. Made with corn-based sauce, sweet potato, zucchini and high fibre pasta, topped with wholemeal crumbs and cheese, it was the meal that was hardest to get my daughter to eat as it was visibly full of vegetables. She did give it a go but in the end being low fat, I enjoyed it for my dinner instead.

Coconut Chicken Curry
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
This is a meal that my daughter has never tried before. Being fussy, as soon as something looks a bit different she will not even try it. Once we got over that hurdle, she actually really liked it. I am very glad to read that the rice is low GI as we never have white rice at home.

Fish Pie
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
My daughter didn’t even realise that this was fish! She has tried fish a couple of times before but has not been a fan, but this meal she did eat. I think the creamy sauce, mashed potato and cheese made it a great tasting meal for my daughter.

Pasta Bolognese
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
Along with the meatballs and pasta, this is another go to meal in our household. I was interested to compare how this meal compared to what I usually cook where my daughter picks out every single vegetable or just ends up eating the pasta. My daughter enjoyed this meal and after 2 meals she did ask if we could get more of these.

Fish nuggets
Health rating: 4.5 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
My daughter thought these were chicken nuggets, which was great as she may not have eaten them or even tried them if I said they were fish. Like the chicken nuggets these look healthy, and my daughter ate them anyway. I was so impressed.

Cottage Pie
Health rating: 4 stars
Cost: $6.95 for 300g
Made with free-range, grass-fed, extra lean beef and 8 different types of vegetables, this meal was tricky to get my daughter to try as the vegetables were visible. Once we got past that and she tried it, she did eat most of it.

Apple Crumble
Cost: $3.95 for 150g
My daughter was looking forward to this one. She loves apple and cake, so she really enjoyed it!

Chocolate Brownie
Cost: $3.95 for 150g
I could not tell my daughter that there was sweet potato in this brownie so that she would try it. She enjoyed it warm after going in the oven. She said it was a very good chocolate cake. I am glad that she could enjoy a brownie that I knew was a lot healthier than a normal brownie, even making her eat vegetables!
