I've never used the sauce as always made my own.
I have used both AK pasta stars and C&G mini macaroni and they are both very good. Much easier than chopping pasta. I've also used Heinz baby rice & spaghetti. The only thing I don't like is the rice as it just turns to mush after a couple of mins of cooking so I just use normal basmati rice.
They can be frozen when used in cooking (well I've frozen them in spag bol/macaroni & curry and had no problems).

Me too - haven't used the sauce as I make my own, but have used the little star pasta and froze it in cheese sauce.
Reiss is only 6 months and spat all the stars out, but that's a different story lol!xx

I make these sauces:
Melt a little butter in a pan, when melted, take off the heat and mix in a little flour until it looks like wet sand. Return to the heat and then add milk until it is like a loose sauce. Keep stirring and add in some grated cheese until melted.
This would be brill for Faith as she doesn't take much milk - that's the reason I make this quite a bit for Reiss, he eats loads of solids, but doesn't take much milk anymore.
Another sauce would be to get 2 or 3 tomatoes, remove the skin by putting in boiling hot water for a minute, then putting into freezing cold water. Put in a saucepan and mash with a fork, cook on a low heat for 2 mins. You can then add whatever you want to it - cheese, pureed veg, milk etc.

I've just checked my packet of AK pasta stars and it doesn't say anything about them containing milk in the ingredients. It does contain soya. Maybe they might be ok (ckeck ingredients yourself 1st to make sure though). You can get these from Boots.

oh no, bummer!
Have you joined the dairy free association - I know they have one, but can't remember what it's called, I know you can get loads of recipe ideas through them as well - it may be possibly linked to the coeliacs society? Might be worth a look.
Man I feel for you ladies - I have enough problems thinking of things to cook without not adding dairy/lactose etc - aaagggh!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
