My youngest turned two a couple weeks ago, and while she is just beginning to talk there’s one word I’m pretty sure she’s known since day 1:
When I tell you this girl is a snacker, I mean it!! Carbs and blueberries are all she ever wants. She’ll skip meals and go stand by the pantry door asking for snacks on repeat. Being that this is child number two and I’m oh so experienced (sarcasm noted), I don’t freak out as much about her aversion to complete meals. I do, however, feel bad giving my children the same things over and over and over again. I also want to see her (and my oldest) enjoying foods she likes that are also healthy. When that happens I feel so much better about life, haha, and that’s where Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM come in!
Our family was feeling
crazy adventurous on Sunday morning and decided to ‘swing by’ the store before heading to church. We needed a couple ingredients for dinner and I wanted to get Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM for the girls.
We went to our local Publix because as much as I loathe grocery shopping (seriously, it’s the worst), I always have a pleasant experience when I’m there. The staff is friendly, the aisles are clean, everyone greets you, and you can’t really beat free cookies for the kids! Plus, everything is so easy to find and we were able to grab what we needed right away.
Lily loved being my big helper and we still made it to church on time! Woohoo!
Yesterday I let our daughters try their new snack, and my oldest was hesitant. She has always been a pretty hearty eater, but the tiny image of a broccoli on the Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM White Cheddar & Broccoli container threatened to scare her off.
I asked her to give it a try and you know what? She would’ve sat there and ate them all if I let her! Lily too! She was chomping on the Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM Original like they were her first meal of the day. They weren’t, I promise!😉
I didn’t mind though, because these baked treats are made from the goodness of navy beans to deliver 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value), 1 gram of fiber, and 10% Daily Value of Vitamin E per serving.
It was a #GerberWinWin and a mom win for sure!
