Our kids are going back to school! Are you ready to get back into routine? Making lunchboxes, snacks for after-school activities, and healthy nibbles for the whole day? I sure am not! And with everything going on, I do not know if I will have the time to prepare meals and snacks that are healthy, tasty, and most of all child-approved! On top of all that, a recent study showed that 55% of new parents have a child with picky eating habits, with a majority worrying their kids might not get the nutrients they need because of their fussiness (83%). Luckily, Gerber has some awesome products to help relieve some stress around back-to-school with reliable, nutritious snacks.
With over 50 different types of snacks, Gerber surely offers something your child will adore!
I am always on the lookout for snacks with fruits and veggies. Gerber offers some great organic snacks containing non-GMO fruits and vegetables. With no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners, these are a go-to to add to any lunchbox! You can find the Very Berry Blend Fruit & Veggie Melts at Walmart, Target, and Amazon for $3.48 per 1 oz (28g) bag.
Snack times are meant to complement meals and provide nutrients babies and children need but might otherwise not get during other meals. When choosing snacks, I always look for nutritious ingredients you can find in superfoods. Wonderfoods Superfood Hearts comes in 2 flavors: Quinoa Strawberry Banana Broccoli & Quinoa Orange Carrot. These are sold at Walmart, Amazon, and Target.
Legumes are important for your health but difficult to incorporate into the diet of children. That is why Gerber offers snacks containing all the valuable nutrients of legumes! Organic Plant-tastic Lil’ Crunchies Organic White Bean Hummus Baked Toddler Snacks can be found on Amazon and Target.
