I don’t like to trick my children into eating the right food; I want them to know the different between “growing foods” and “not growing” or sugary foods. I label foods for my children in the “growing foods” category: proteins, fruits, vegetables, dairy, snacks, healthier options … there might be some more, but that gives you the idea. The hardiest and finest line for me as a mom is the combo of growing snack food.
I was recently offered some snacks by HappyBaby in their HappyMunchies line of organic baby foods. We received their NEW Happy Munchies baked organic cheese and veggies snacks.
These snacks look like regular cheese puff snacks, but they contain broccoli and kale in the green can, and carrots in the orange can. This is a healthier alterative to other snack foods. HappyMunchies is USDA Organic certified and support organic farming, and HappyMunchies contains NO pesticides, NO chemical fertilizers and NO GMOs.
- whole grain corn
- 25mg choline per serving for healthy brain development
- 60% less sodium than the leading toddler cheese snacks
The HappyMunchies cheese puff version is small for little hands and mouths. Your child is ready for HappyMunchies cheese and veggie snacks when:
1. They can crawl on their hands and knees without their tummy touching the floor.
2. Eat thicker solids with larger pieces.
3. Use their jaws to mash food with gums.
4. Pick up food to eat on their own with thumb and forefingers.
My 19MO loves the HappyMunchies baked organic cheese and veggie snacks. He walks around the house holding the whole can and munching away. In fact, when we first reserved our sample my older son (4YO) was the first to try them. The 4YO rejected them (honestly he’s in “that” stage). BUT as his brother was continuing to eat the HappyMunchies cheese puffs the 4YO decided he wanted in too. Now both munch away during snack time. These little puffs are so tasty; I like them too, and yes the kids have caught me eating their HappyMunchies.
