My daughter loves to eat. She has from the very beginning. She was a chubby little thing within a couple of months because she wanted to nurse as often as possible. When she started eating solid foods, I encouraged her to feed herself the snacks I would put on the table in front of her. At first, she would push them around and play with them. Or pour her drink on them and make a nice, big slushy mess. Eventually she realized that those things were delicious if she put them in her mouth.
She’s now 2 1/2 and absolutely LOVES to eat! So, not much has changed. While we rarely see a plate full of mush, I do have the problem of finding foods that are healthy and still yummy. I like to pick up Gerber® Lil’ Beanies because they are made with 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value) and 1 gram of fiber per serving. And, since these snacks are baked and made with naturally flavored ingredients like navy beans, they are a great, mess-free treat for your littles!
When we head to our local Kroger store, Smith’s we head straight to the baby/toddler aisle so we can grab more of these babies. My little munchkin loves them because they are easy for her to hold and still have the taste she loves. I love them because they don’t make a huge mess. It’s a win win with Gerber® Lil’ Beanies!
The Original flavor is for children that are just starting out on solids and/0r who prefer a simple snack rather than one that has a bit more flavor. White Cheddar & Broccoli has a little bit of zest to it. Which means it’s definitely the favorite at our house.
You can find them at your local Kroger store today. For more information on each flavor, just click the links above!
