Summer Adventures with Gerber Lil’ Beanies.
Now that the summer has begun, the beautiful weather has been beckoning us to the outdoors. Between swimming, hiking, camping, gardening and generally just running around like maniacs with twigs and leaves stuck in our hair, it’s important to keep lots of healthy snacks on hand for the kids to refuel.
One problem I always face is finding truly healthy snacks that are age-appropriate. Another obstacle is getting them past my picky little primadonnas.
I was curious to test out these new Lil’ Beanies (TM) from Gerber® as I have had good experiences with other Gerber snacks and foods. I love that the Lil’ Beanies are made from navy beans, with natural flavors and are non-GMO with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives! I never have to worry that I’m feeding them something bad.
My little ones seem to love both the Original flavor as well as the White Cheddar & Broccoli. They come in handy resealable cans that keep them fresh and are easy to pack and the snacks themselves are generously sized for tiny fingers to grasp and manipulate.
Calming the “No me!” Monster
This is extra important as we are in the “No me!” stage. For parents that haven’t been through this yet, it’s when your young darling starts to assert their independence and wants to do everything for themselves. This usually involves the screaming of the words “NO ME!” regularly and at top volume.
With the Lil’ Beanies snacks they can easily feed themselves, saving a lot of yelling and helping them feel a sense of accomplishment.
WalMart to the Rescue.
I was pleased to find that my local WalMart store carries Gerber Lil’ Beanies, making it quick and simple to stock up. They were easy to find, right in the baby aisle. They actually had three-can packs of each kind on sale, which worked out to be a better deal for me.
But don’t take my word for it, you must go grab some Gerber snacks to help keep your little ones fueled up and ready to take on any adventure that comes their way this summer! Check out the new flavors launching at a WalMart near you: Original and White Cheddar & Broccoli.
