    My boys are yoghury fiends and thoroughly enjoyed these. Blueberry and starwberry were by far the favourites followed by banana.

    The bright kid friendly packaging is very inviting to kids and also makes then stand out.

    As a mum I love that these are not only low sugar buy also probiotic with kefir added. As we are coming to learn gut health is incredibly important, especially for my boys with ezcema so im all for anything that helps in that department.

    I dont have an issue with my boys having suckies. They are great for on the go. My boys find them hard yo open so i dont put them in school lunches but great when we need to get out the door fast in the morning. Id love though if they made these in tubs. That would be amazing amd much more affordable and more enviro friendly. We do however recycle the pouches through the soft plastic collection. But yeah big tubs would be amazing.

    Thanks for the opportunity Kidspot

    We got to trial the Kefir Mango Pouches. I would have tried more flavours however when I went to New World they didn’t have any of the Kefir range (they did have other Collective products)!
    I managed to find them at Countdown.

    My 2 yr old loved them. He scoffed them down so quickly. I love the packaging, I love that thy don’t have any added sugar. And actually I tried one myself. It’s a lovely consistency and flavour. So great to be getting some probiotics into him as well.
    I have tried other yoghurt pouches before which my son really enjoys but I don’t like how sweet or artificial some of them are.. I am thrilled with the Kefir Probots range and it’s nice to have a healthy lunchbox option. I will be recommending them to the other mums. It’s a winner!!

    Thank you very much for the opportunity to try the new Kefir suckies. I am quite a fan of the Collective Kefir so it was great to be able to try the range in a kid-friendly format. My little guy was lucky enough to try Blueberry, Banana, Strawberry and Mango. He was a fan of all four (he is a little yoghurt-monster!) and loved being able to have a pouch. I really like the fact that these are low in sugar and good for your gut health – especially good for children at daycare to help keep the germs at bay. We will definitely buy these from time to time int he future as a special treat.

    Thanks for letting us try these my near 2 year old loved the blueberry one, she wanted it as soon as I put it in the trolley and had to give it to her in the car and she ate the whole pouch before I got in the groceries and myself in the car and asked for more! I did have to go look in countdown as I could not find it in my local supermarket.
    My 9 year old on the other hand tried the blueberry and the strawberry one I got and was not a fan of either, lucky my near 2 year old liked them so didn’t go to waste

    Thanks so much for the chance to try all 4 flavours.
    We usually just get one flavour as my son loves the colour orange so picks the mango one but this was a great chance to get one in every flavour and give them all a go.
    We were already a fan and had 4 mango in the fridge but that was the only flavour we had tried. Now we can say we are fans of the rest.
    These are the perfect snack to add to my nappy bag when we’re are running our errands in the mornings I know I can throw a snack his way that’s good for him and not sugar loaded, it fills him up and keeps him quiet and doesn’t make a mess.
    It fills him up and keeps him going until lunch time so I’m not wrapping and packing.. plus if I’m near a supermarket on our errands and I haven’t packed one I can just grab one and it’s something he looks forward too.
    My 5yo daughter on the other hand gets one in her lunch so I don’t know how it goes down but it always is the one thing I know I can send and will always come home empty so know she’s getting something filling in her tummy.
    For us no added sugar is a huge part of our diets. Especially for my kids. After having gestational diabetes I am so much more aware of sugar in foods and try and avoid added sugars.
    I like these yogurts as they aren’t overly sweet or taste like that fake strawberry fruit flavour a lot of yogurts tend to be.
    I will say they are a runnier consistency than their normal yoghurts but I’m lucky my kids are both at the age they can control it well.. time will tell with my infant.
    We are sick at the moment and I’ve given my son one this morning as it’s easy on his throat and good for his tummy especially after antibiotics. Probiotics put some good bacteria back in where an antibiotic has stripped them all so that’s a huge bonus also.
    I find they keep their cool for a while being packaged the way they are which is handy. And there is a great recycling method in place for the packaging which is nice to see.
    It’s well packaged, never leaks, is resealable, son loves the robot and colours and is a pretty affordable snack.
    Can’t wait to try the new flavour soon.
    Thank you so much for the chance we are definitely fans.

    We were able to purchase one of each flavour Keffir Probots from our local Countdown.  My Miss 4 couldn’t wait to try them, and there was no way my Miss 8 was going to miss out on a taste test too!  They both enjoyed all the flavours, but mango was the favourite of both.  I also had a taste of each flavour, I really loved the slightly tangy, not-too-sweet taste. This is actually how I remember flavoured yoghurt tasting when I was a child (long, long ago!), before it all became so overloaded with sugar!  This a a great way to introduce probiotics and fermented foods into kids diets, as both are so so beneficial. 

    Love the cute robot graphics on the packaging, and the clever word play too!  Lots of great information provided on the packs.  I see these as a convenient snack for on-the-go, probably something I would buy occasionally for my 4 year old – would be a perfect treat option after supermarket shopping, good to be able to eat in the car.
    Unfortunately we do not currently have soft-plastic recycling in the Taranaki region, sadly nor are their any Terracycle collection points here either.  I do appreciate the steps taken to make these more recyclable, but would probably prefer the option to also buy the product in larger sizes, reducing packaging waste.  I’ll definitely look out for more keffir options in The Collective range, and try some of their other yoghurt flavours as well.   
    Thanks Kidspot and The Collective for the opportunity to trial these Keffir Probots.

    my nephew whos 8 tried one (hes a smaller child and has had probs eating nutritional and some foods) he said wow these are YUM!!! the day we got them sent .. he took one to school each day too and even some of the kids asked what it was and wanted their parents to buy some !
    he said the flavours were “really yummy” and he liked how it was No mess to eat doesnt need a spoon and also he can put a lid on it when hes not eating one and stays nice and cool in his lunchbox too (stays cool for ages after the fridge)
    his sisters who are 4 shared one to try too and they liked It as well ….. the fav was vanilla and berry !
    thanks for lettng us try it will def be buying more in groceries now

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to try these. We managed to get all 4 flavours which my children aged 3 and 16 months wolfed down! Awesome packaging. Love the low sugar content and the fact that they are probiotic – anyone with kids in daycare knows that every bit helps! Wish I had of got a chance to try them myself but yoghurts in a pouch are considered a treat in our house so and as soon as Mr 3 got his, there was no chance. Would definitely recommend them and will be looking out for them next time I get my boys a “treat” 🙂

  9. hania83 19/02/2020 at 5:25 pm

    Thank you for sending us the vouchers.. My kids really loved all the flavours… Mr 6 chose the strawberry and blueberry and he said he liked the blueberry more… My 13 mnths was delighted after every spoon hahaha… Cold healthy treat disappear really quickly… Perfect for lunchbox and afternoon tea… I noticed their bowl movements was better… Thank you again.. I would definitely recommend these pouches… One wee thing, it is a bit hard for my 6y to open it by himself.

  10. Riverwood 19/02/2020 at 3:25 pm

    We will be reviewing the Kefir Probots which was trialled and tested by my 2 year old daughter.

    Let’s start with packaging and design – at first glance the packaging design appears to be aimed at boys more so than being gender neutral which does not appeal to me as much as similar products with gender neutral colours. However, in saying that, children don’t mind and don’t understand the gender stereotypes. I would have personally liked to see pouches that were a bit less cluttered as I have walked past these in the shop so many times but have failed to notice that these are actually probiotic yoghurts and not just the same as any other. The pouches however are a great idea as they are perfect for little hands and ideal to pack into lunch boxes and take on car trips.

    The retail price at current in Christchurch is $1.89 which is quite on par with the closest competitors. The price is affordable in comparison to other probiotic products in the dairy section.

    I decided to sample the product prior to passing it to my daughter. Upon opening the yoghurt I was very pleased to see that there was no watery substance at the top when you first open it which is something I encounter quite a bit with pouched food/yoghurt. For the sake of the trial we tested the blueberry flavour. The flavour is quite subtle, not overly sweet and perfect. I think the taste is perfect for small children who are known to be picky! I also commend the vendor for selling a product that contains billions of live probiotics but yet it tastes just like any other yoghurt.

    My daughter could not wait to try it and gulped down the yoghurt like it was the first food she’d had in weeks! She seemingly enjoyed the yoghurt and gave her approval when asked whether she liked it.

    All in all it is a product of quality, tastes great and has no added sugars. Coincidentally, I was after a probiotic for my toddler and soon to be toddler and am pleased to say that I will be continuing to buy the Kefir Probots to ensure gut health in both my daughters.

    I would highly recommend this to any mom of young children.

  11. Emma Crump 19/02/2020 at 1:05 pm

    YUM! These just went down a treat! Unfortunately when we went to get them there was only blueberry and strawberry but we will be back to try the others. My 2 year old gobbles them down and isn’t fazed by the kefir tingle, infact i gave him the choice between a non kefir yoghurt and a Kefir Probots this morning and there was no hesitation in grabbing the Kefir one. The pouches are definitely convenient but I would love the option to be able to buy this in a bigger tub to portion out into a bowl or a reusable pouch. I find the recycling not that easy as its requires going to a preschool to drop off which feels a little weird, its a shame to supermarkets cant have a drop off. BUT all in all, we have a small 2 year old fan who is now asking for the blue yoghurt everytime we go down the dairy aisle in the supermarket!!

  12. halyahs 19/02/2020 at 9:24 am

    We tried all four flavours, Miss 2 loved them all and they disappeared pretty quickly.
    I tried all them myself as well, they were pretty good they did have a slight ferment taste to them which took a little getting used to (but that’s the taste of health! lol) I adored the mango flavour and would eat tubs of of given the chance.
    I loved that these had the added benefit of probiotics which many other yogurts don’t offer.
    I found the packaging lovely and my daughter liked the rocket ships.
    I understand how mess free on the go these squeezy tube packets are, but honestly I dislike not being able to recycle them. We do not have soft plastic recycling in our town, nor a Terracycle collection point. If these were available in a recyclable tub (1 or 2 plastic) I would 100% buy these in the future but as it stands these will be for special treats only for us.

    We loved these yogurts. I do appreciate that these packs give us some recycling options which others do not but a more universal recyclable pack would be even better (for everyone 🙂 )

    Thank you for this lovely opportunity to trial this product.

  13. Tracey85 18/02/2020 at 8:30 pm

    My daughter LOVED this yoghurt, especially the blueberry flavour. It has a great texture, smooth without bits, just how my daughter likes her yoghurt. It is in a convenient sized package, great for an on-the-go snack, in lunchboxes, for breakfast or for an after dinner treat. I loved how there was no mess, my daughter could grab one from the fridge herself, and most of all, she enjoyed it! She even asked me to buy more when they were all gone. I would highly recommend this product to families with children for it’s taste, convenience and health benefits.

  14. Kiwiemz79 18/02/2020 at 3:47 pm

    No complaints from Mr 5 or Mr 1 for the yoghurts, all 4 flavours were tried and they disappeared very quickly! Mr 6 was not impressed with the “pink” one, but loved the rocket ships on the packs, and has has for the rocket suckies to be brought again. If he had to pick only one the banana would have been the best! Love the size perfect for a snack in the car on the way home from school. They are a little more than I would pay for a snack food, but would def consider when on special for the convenience value.

  15. Timmi6981 17/02/2020 at 6:46 pm

    Thankyou for giving our family a chance to try these. My daughter had the banana one to try and man did she love it! It’s so handy in a travel convenient pouch. My daughter finished hers in 30seconds and wanted another! My son had mango and that’s definitely a hit with him! I even had a wee taste and they taste really good!! Highly recommended we will be getting these again

  16. TBartlett 17/02/2020 at 4:13 pm

    My 6yo tried the blueberry and mango while my 2.5yo had the other two (banana and strawberry). My 6yo loved the blueberry and my 2.5yo preferred the banana but they both enjoyed the two flavours they tried each. Definitely a guilt-free treat that made us all happy. Thank you!

  17. GONZZE 17/02/2020 at 3:29 pm

    Thanks for giving us a chance to try these my 6 year old like his one Frozen the others were not that keen on the flavours my 6 year old said banana was definitely the best I liked how they have no sugar added to them they’re great for small hands and easy to open I’ts great how they have a screw lid on the top so if you don’t eat it all you can have some later the packaging is bright and colourful so is attractive it would be good if they were made a bit bigger than 100g maybe 200g thanks again for giving us the chance to try these

  18. DJ_PJ 17/02/2020 at 8:41 am

    We tried the mango flavour. Both my boys guzzled them down, and even my husband knicked off with one. I love that they are healthier than the normal yogurt that I give them and the squeezey pouch meant that Mr independent 11months old could do it himself.

  19. Alison Spencer 17/02/2020 at 5:10 am

    Blueberry flavour delicious and was favourite. Strawberry was good but not sweet enough. Great packaging and size just right. .

  20. Purpleducks1 16/02/2020 at 5:32 pm

    These are a complete hit with miss 6! Easy to store in lunch box and taste amazing! Best of all no more missing spoons… will definitely be purchasing again. 🙌

  21. Robmel 16/02/2020 at 3:40 pm

    We grabbed BLUEBERRY & MANGO today. Both boys loved it and squished every drop out! Their first comment was “it’s a little sour” but that didn’t stop them. I’m guessing it’s because of the ‘no added sugar’ and the kefir. The 13 active culture strains are a little Mind blowing to read but I would happily purchase these again. They would be great frozen for the lunch boxes and Mr lactose free approves!
