Gerber for the Win with Lil’ Beanies
Thankfully our little ones are willing to eat anything that doesn’t eat them first. I know, believe me I know how blessed I am to have little ones that are not picky eaters. Now that Miss Allie has entered the, “Do it myself” stage, she is all about the feel, flavor and sheer enjoyment of self feeding. As a parent, knowing the new Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) are not only nutritious, but the perfect size for little fingers makes them a great go to snack for not only Miss Allie, but Little C and Champ were lining up to give them a try.
I was pleased to read that Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) have 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value) and 1 gram of fiber per serving. Yay for the good for you snacks that our little ones love! Lil’ Beanies(TM) and my crew are a great fit for snack time.
Don’t tell my little ones, but Lil’ Beanies(TM) are made from the navy beans and are naturally flavored. They are also made with non genetically engineered (Non-GMO) ingredients and have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Since Miss Allie wants to do everything herself, she was not content for me to hand her the snack. Oh no, she grabbed the contain and managed to get the top off all by her self!
Miss Allie does like to share; even if it is a half eaten Lil’ Beanies. Even her best 4 legged friend Champ got in on this round of snacks. Of course Champ loves to camp under Miss Allie’s chair at meal times.
Miss Allie enjoys both flavors of Lil’ Beanies, but she is drawn to the White Cheddar & Broccoli canister. I think she likes the colors on it.
Thankfully, our crew are easy to feed. Miss Allie won’t let you go long before reminding you that she is awake and therefore wanting something to eat. Our biggest challenge is finding nutritious options for snacks because we are always on the go. It’s clear that Miss Allie thinks her Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) Snack is delicious.
Being on the go everyday means that we have to plan ahead for meals and snacks. The Lil’ Beanies(TM) snack is the perfect travel friendly snack to take on the go.
Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) are available in the Original and a White Cheddar & Broccoli flavor. We found them at our local Kroger store in the baby snack aisle. I like shopping for baby items at our local Kroger because they are set off to the end of the store in a section of just baby items. I can get in and out quickly on those need it now trips to the store come up.
Snack time doesn’t have to mean junk food time. With Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) Snacks you can be comfortable knowing that you are offering a nutritious and delicious snack to your little ones.
Pick up a couple of cans of each the next time you are in your local Kroger store. Which flavor Original or the White Cheddar & Broccoli does your little one reach for first? Our Miss Allie loves both flavors, but I think the green on the White Cheddar & Broccoli draws her attention to the canister first.
Thank you to Gerber for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring my little one to eat healthy!
