Lunchtime With Hartley’s Jelly // #HartleysYourLunchbox

Unlike his brother who will literally eat anything, Harry is one of the fussiest eaters I have ever come across. He eats the same meals pretty much every single day, refuses to try new foods, won’t eat certain foods if they’re touching and will only eat cheese if it’s grated. No, really.

So, when he started preschool earlier this month I knew I was going to struggle when it came to offering him enough variety in his lunchbox. He tends to have the same items in his lunchbox every time, which he is perfectly happy with, but I think it’s nice for him to have a little change up or a treat from time to time.

With that in mind, I’ve been on the hunt for some alternative healthy snacks to pop in his lunchbox and when Hartley’s Jelly got in touch about their #HartleysYourLunchbox campaign, I was only too happy to take part.


They very kindly sent us a selection of their No Added Sugar Jelly Pots as well as a lunchbox and some stickers so that Harry could decorate and personalize his lunchbox.

There are five flavours to choose from including strawberry, raspberry, orange, tropical, apple and blackcurrant. It’s hard to believe that these pots are sugar-free because they still taste utterly delicious and retain the juicy fruity flavor you would expect from jelly.

hartleysjelly1As a parent, I’m always conscious of the foods Riley and Harry are putting into their body, so I was really pleased to discover that the Hartley’s No Added Sugar Jelly Pots contain no artificial colours or flavours, are fat and gluten free and contain less than 10 calories per pot.

Stocked in all major retailers from only 49p, the Hartley’s Jelly No Added Sugar pots are an affordable, tasty and nutritious treat. They are the perfect size for children’s lunchboxes , providing convenience and a wide range of flavours to satisfy the tastebuds of all youngsters.


You too can get involved with the #HartleysYourLunchbox campaign. In stores nationwide, Hartley’s are offering consumers the chance to collect 12 special edition green lids from across the No Added Sugar Jelly Pots (115g) range, to claim a free Hartley’s lunchbox and stickers.

Consumers can redeem a special edition Hartley’s lunchbox by heading to the Hartley’s website  Each one comes complete with an assortment of fabulously fun stickers, including Hartley’s much-loved characters and a sticker alphabet for children to personalise their lunchbox.

    My son is so fussy with food too. I’ll definitely have to try this jelly with him i like that it has no added sugar and they do quite a few different flavours.

      I like the fact it’s got no added sugar as well, it can be so hard to find healthy snacks that taste yummy for kids these days so these jelly pots are perfect! xx

      Haha – that’s what kids do best isn’t it? I find stickers ALL OVER the place! xx

      They really are and they’re just the right size for lunchboxes too. Perfect for little kids (and big kids too!) xx

    Very handy to have these snack pots. I always forget to name jelly on time and then it takes like 4 to 5 hours for it to set.

    These used to be a regular in my son’s packed lunch – he’s on school dinners now but still loves one of these for a pudding every now and again x

      I think my eldest is missing not having one of these as a treat in his lunchbox now he’s started school and gets the free school meals. but he tends to have one for dessert in the evenings! Harry on the other hand would have a whole lunchbox full of Jelly pots for preschool if he had his own way lol xx

    My daughter is a hugely fussy eater too. Sometimes I am pulling my hair out trying to get her to eat something. But she does love jelly. And these no sugar jellies sound perfect. And I love the lunchbox and the way it has been decorated with the stickers. Too cute. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    I love that it has no sugar! My two love jelly. I actually bought some Hartleys jelly a few days ago and still have not got round to making it for them. But I really should. Makes a great dessert with ice cream too! The pots look great too, perfect for school! xx

    I love jelly, my older one is the fussiest eater and eats the same stuff pretty much every day. He is not a jelly fan sadly but I love those little pots as a treat when you fancy something sweet. x
