We’re all excited and excited in equal mix about ‘Back to School’ for me my littlest one is started Reception, proper school. I have no idea where on earth the last 4 years have gone but it’s time for her to take that HUGE step.
As part of the back to school preparations there are lots of purchases to be made, goodness I realise now why my Mum used to look so disappointed when I scuffed yet another pair of shoes! We always had new lunchboxes too – mine was My Little Pony and my brother’s Mask! Hartley’s offered to send us a very cute bright yellow lunchbox and some yummy jelly to try as part of their Back To School campaign we excitedly said “yes please!” My little ones are massive jelly fans and I was delighted to see they were the Sugar Free variety. Hartley’s have been making jams and jellies for 140 years. The little jelly pots come in standard and no added sugar varieties.
The lunchbox is the perfect size for my little lady to take her lunch in and we were also sent a great pack of stickers so she could decorate the box with. The first thing she did was to spell out her full name on the back, something we’ve been working on lots over the summer holidays!
Our school has a reasonably strict policy on not taking sweets etc for lunch and they ask us to send the children with more healthy options where possible. We tend to give a sandwich, in triangles – always triangles! A piece of fruit, some cheese and a yoghurt. We now have the great idea of being able to send jelly pots instead of yoghurts though!
The jelly pots we received were Strawberry flavour and went down a storm with the kids. I’d like to say there are some left to go in said lunchbox however they disappeared so we need to buy more before they go back to school.
The Hartley’s No Added Sugar jelly pots have no artificial colours and flavours and are fat and gluten free. Stocked in all major retailers from only 49p, they are a tasty treat that will be sure to raise a smile. Selected retailers will also be offering the pots at 25p throughout September so an additional reason to give them a try.

*We were sent the items for free for the purposes of this post however all opinions remain honest and my own*
