One of the coolest parts about being a mom, for me, is watching the transition babies make from adorable newborns and infants into toddlerhood. It’s at that point when you start to see their own personalities and individuality start to develop. It’s so fun to watch them explore, learn and grow as they soak in the stimulation of the world around them.
Along with seemingly endless stores of energy also comes the unwavering curiosity about…well, everything! If your toddler is like mine, this includes putting everything that crosses their path directly into their mouth. I suppose that’s the quickest way to find out what’s tasty! I know some days I have to say “No!” so often, I feel like I should just save time by making a recording of myself saying it and play it in a loop.
I’m always excited when I find things that my babies love- that are so good for them that I don’t have to say no. Gerber Graduates is one such line of products. They create toddler-friendly foods in fun shapes and delicious flavors that are easy for little hands to grasp, as well as for young palettes to enjoy- while providing nutritious meals and snacks.
Our favorites are the Pasta Pick-Ups Ravioli and the Puffs Cereal Snacks.
This year for Easter, instead of just deluging the kids with tons of sugary candy and empty calories, I decided to stock up on Gerber Graduates and add those to the candy table. (We do a table full of treats instead of traditional baskets, then let each child fill their own container.) This turned out to be a huge hit! The kids were all excited to see the familiar shape of the cereal containers and reached for those before even looking at the chocolate. This is fantastic for me, since I won’t have to spend a bunch of time policing how much candy they eat at once, and we’ll have plenty of healthier snacks and lunches on hand afterward. Definitely a win-win moment for our family!
