Making every little bite count

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

It's crazy how fast time flies when you have a little one. I feel like it was not all that long ago that I was sharing the announcement of baby number four with everyone, and now here I am talking about his favorite snacks. They sure don't stay little for long. Josiah is going on 19 months and shows no signs of slowing down. At his age he's growing and maturing so quickly that it's important to make every bite count to ensure he's getting all of the nutrition he needs to grow and thrive. 

Josiah's been my picky baby right from the start. He was impatient with nursing, fussed with every formula we offered, and I swear we went an entire month recently where all he ate were strawberries and string cheese. Babies do this sometimes, and you just have to roll with it.

Did you know most little ones who are 8-24 months old get about 25-30% of their daily calories from snacks? And 1/3 of of them are not getting whole grains on a given day. Thankfully, Gerber offers nutritious snacks with good for you ingredients like whole grains with none of the added bad stuff (like artificial flavors and synthetic colors). 

Big sis Harper remembers how much she used to love these Puffs! I may have had to give her some of her own because she couldn't stop sneaking Josiah's when he wasn't looking. 

These Gerber Puffs, Lil Crunchies, and Yogurt Melts were favorites with all of my previous kids. I found them in their new blue packaging at Target and I grabbed a couple of new flavors for Josiah. 

He loves all of the different tastes and textures!

While I can't control everything he likes and dislikes, I can certainly make sure he's getting some healthier snacking in with these Gerber favorites. Even the yogurt melts are made with real fruit! And they're the perfect size for self feeding and snacking on the go. Easy peasy, mess-free snacking that also sneaks in whole grains and fruit? Sounds like a mom win to me.

If you're a mom of little ones and you haven't already tried these Gerber snacks for your baby and toddler I highly encourage you to grab some. Lucky you- I even have a coupon for them :) I'm going back to Target to get more for Josiah's Easter basket, and Harper's as well (she loves those Mild Cheddar Lil' Crunchies!) Click here to get the coupon so you can stock up and make every bite count when it comes to snacking.
