Snack time is supposed to be about fun, right?! Well, when you think healthy, you may not think fun. But, it’s important that we feed our little ones healthy snacks. There’s so many snack options available. But, how do you know which one to pick?! I’ve been through the snack time struggle, ya’ll! I want to mix up the creative, healthy snacks. But, sometimes a mama is just tired! But, that doesn’t mean snack time has to be boring and unhealthy.
Dray is finally interested in solid food. It felt as if it took forever to get him into solid food. Haley was a different story. She wanted waffles at 6 months old. Just like any mom, I want to provide my little ones with healthy snack options. Fruits and vegetables are great for this. But, what if you’re on the go? You may have ran out of snacks. If you’re like me, you may have just plain forgot them at home.
I learned one lesson quickly. Remember to bring the snacks! Because, forgetting them can lead to some heartache. Not just on baby’s end. But, on your end, too. We make sure to bring along plenty of baggies filled with yummy snack time options. But, during one outing, I completely forgot the snacks. Which I realized once Dray went from happy baby to I could hardly console him.
The closest store to us was a Publix. Prepackaged snacks aren’t always healthiest. But, that’s when I spotted Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM on the shelves. Our family has trusted Gerber for generations. So, why would we trust them any less with it comes to a healthy snacking option?! This was great. I was so excited to let Dray try them out. Not just because they are a healthy snack time option. But, because Gerber is the brand he started self feeding with from the beginning.
Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM are easy for Dray to chew. Plus, they help with his pick up skills. He loves them. We don’t have to tell him that they’re healthy.
