Food Tasting at Petit Bowl (Plus a Giveaway!)

Girlee and I were invited last week to a food tasting session at Petit Bowl, which is located at United Square (#01-77/78).

Petit Bowl @ United Square

We were joined by other mum bloggers, Ruth, Daphne, Jus, PC and their little ones. It was great meeting up with the very people whose blogs I read so often! It's like I know them (and their kids) even though I don't actually know them, if you know what I mean.

Our six cute kids

Aside from a near-accident (where she leaned backwards while sitting on the bench and almost hit her head on the floor but was thankfully saved by me as I'm always on high-alert even when I'm taking the above photos), she had fun playing with the other kids.

The co-owner, Josephine, then gave us an introduction of their company, products and services.

Petit Bowl, which started in 2009, aims to provide wholesome meals for parents who are too busy to prepare homemade meals for their children. The "frozen solutions", as Josephine calls it, are made with organic fresh ingredients and individually sealed in capsules that are portable and easy to heat up.

We got the chance to taste 11 of the 70 over different combinations that are available both in the physical store as well as online.

If you know my girl, you'll know that there is absolutely nothing she won't eat. Well, at first at least. Any food you dangle in front of her goes straight into her mouth; she then chews (with only 2 teeth no less) on it slowly, savouring the taste before giving you the verdict with a nod of approval (yummy!) or a spit (no way!). If you try giving her food that she had already deemed 'spit-worthy', she will shake her head rapidly at you while giving you the 'stink-eye'. True story.

So it wasn't surprising at all that even though she was the youngest there, she was also the most enthusiastic food taster as well. Most of the food that she tried got the enthusiastic nod of approval except for lamb, which was deemed 'spit-worthy'. I guess she's just like her parents on this one. We don't really like the taste of lamb either.

Her favourite was the Creamy Chicken Penne, which was also a hot favourite among the other children as well. I personally loved it and bought a cup home for Girlee to eat for dinner. It was pretty easy to prepare; just pop it into the microwave for 2 minutes and viola! Dinner is served.
