Keeping Summer Fun with a Happy and Healthy Toddler!

DSC_9457One of our biggest struggles in the summer is eating healthy. With the ice cream truck always around the corner and big brother and sister wanting to munch on junk food, I know that it’s important to keep my growing very active toddler eating healthy and not filling his belly with heavy unhealthy foods.


Recently while at my local Walmart, I was browsing the baby food aisle and came across lil’ Beanies by Gerber. My little guy was instantly drawn in after I showed him the packaging, and just had to have these “snackies”. After looking the packaging and ingredients over, I agreed and we headed on our way home with our goodies.

First thing when we got home, we obviously had to open up our lil’ Beanies ( I’m surprised me made it that long! ) and Immediately I was impressed with the smell! Thee snacks smell like something I would want to munch on, and they give off a snack food vibe without my little guy knowing they are actually good for him! I was definitely sold. And he liked them. He REALLY liked them.


In Original and White Chedder & Broccoli, he’s getting tons of delicious flavor along with healthy stuff for his growing active little body!  lil’ Beanies are made from navy beans to deliver 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value), 1 gram of fiber and 10% Daily Value of Vitamin E per serving, which is something this Momma can stand behind—not to mention they are non-GMO!


These snacks are extremely portable, making them easy to tote outside for his many adventures or to the park in our diaper bag for easy snacking and even sharing!


We have definitely found our go to snack for the summer—though I have a feeling these little gems will be sticking around with us all year long!

If you’re looking to fuel your toddler with healthy snacking options this summer, head on over and check out lil’ Beanies by Gerber and check out your local Walmart baby food aisle to pick up a few for yourself!


Which flavor do you think your little one would prefer??
