Did you know that research shows many toddlers are not eating a single serving, yet alone the recommended servings, of fruit or vegetable on a given day? Luckily, and thankfully I guess, I can say that this is not ever really the case in our house. Sure, we have the occasional veggie strikes by my little guy, but fruits and vegetables make up a big portion of our diet. We all know though, that there are those times… or “those days” where things are just tough. Whether it’s because you’ve got to clean the house for company coming to visit, your dog just ate your kid’s lunch off the table, or you’ve gone out somewhere that doesn’t really offer any kid friendly healthy options… sometimes you need a quick and easy food that provides the nourishment your toddler needs. GERBER® GRADUATES® Fruit & Veggie Melts™ fill that exact need.
GERBER® GRADUATES® Fruit & Veggie Melts™ are something that I honestly ALWAYS keep on hand: at the house, in the car, in the diaper bag. GERBER® GRADUATES® Fruit & Veggie Melts™ are my friend. My little guy thinks of them as a treat. He recognizes the package and will pick the melts out when offered with other foods. I try not to give him too many packaged foods, but I feel okay about giving him GERBER® GRADUATES® Fruit & Veggie Melts™. They really do have a lot to offer.
