Mommy and Toddler Approved Snack with #GerberWinWin

One of many struggles I had as a mom was dealing with my kids’ picky eating.  It was a hassle to find any food, let alone nutritious and good for you, that my kids would actually eat.  As parents we want our kids to develop healthy eating habits early but it’s not always easy to get them to eat food that is good for them.  With my second toddler in the house, I was determined to find something healthy that is both mommy and toddler approved! 

Last week, I hauled my little family over to Walmart in search for the perfect snack to take on our houseboat trip to Lake Powell.  In the baby aisle, I
found something that caught my eye!  It was a new snack item from Gerber made with navy beans that came in two different flavors:

  • Lil’ BeaniesTM Original
  • Lil’ BeaniesTM White Cheddar & BroccoliToddler Approved Snack

As I read the label, I got more and more excited! Lil’ BeaniesTM contains per serving:

  • 2 grams of protein
  • 1 gram of fiber
  • 10% Daily Value of Vitamin E
The best part is that Lil’ BeaniesTM is baked, naturally flavored and contains no genetically engineered (GM) ingredients!

Toddler Approved
Lil’ BeaniesTM comes in small cans that could fit easily into a diaper bag or large purse!  Perfect for our upcoming road trip!  I knew this would be perfect for my kids and I couldn’t wait to get home and have them try it!  You can just see the excitement on my son’s face when I gave him the can of Lil’ BeaniesTM!

Toddler Approved

Mommy & Toddler Approved Snack!

The moment of truth!  I sat both my kids down at the table and handed them each their own can of Lil’ BeaniesTM.  My 3 year old immediately approved saying, “Mama, this is GOOD!”  My 1 year old followed after big brother and we had taught him to say “Yummm!” when he liked something.  He stuck two in his mouth, then another, looked up at me and said, “Yummm!” and grabbed a handful out of the can!

Toddler Approved
Relief came over me!  Success!  

Needless to say, both cans were gone by the end of the day!  I returned to Walmart and bought a few more for our trip!

Toddler Approved

If you have picky eaters like me, head over to your local Walmart’s baby aisle and try Lil’ BeaniesTM!
