Snacks Over Nothing

Fussy eating is simply a phase that most toddlers go through, usually in their second year. Not only do G&O give us fits on what they want to eat, lately their appetite has practically been non-existent. Frustrated is not the word to describe how we currently feel. We’ve had to incorporate Pediasure into their bottles at night in order to ensure they get the nutrients needed since they don’t want to eat chicken, pasta, rice, fish, steak, lentils, you name it, we’ve tried it.

Seems like they prefer to snack on certain foods then sit down and eat a real meal. Snacks like goldfish crackers, cheerios and welch’s fruit snacks remain a constant in the snack rotation of our household. Do these snacks replace the nutrition value of grilled chicken with lentils? No, of course not. But when toddlers are on a hunger strike, feeding them foods that will fill their bellies is a better alternative than empty stomachs.

Recently, the folks at Healthy Munchy (www.Healthymunchy.com) sent me samples of a healthy snack for G&O to try. I did a little research before receiving the product and found out their product is made with 100% fruit. No fat. No cholesterol. No additives or preservatives. Vegan and Kosher too.

The single serve snack pouch packs fresh-picked apples, pineapple or bananas that are freeze-dried using new technology to eliminate moisture and retain an enjoyable crunchy dry fruit. They come in individual bags that feature licensed Nickelodeon characters Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants so even the fussiest kids may consider eating because of the characters on the pouches.

G&O loved their Healthy Munchy snacks and we liked them because you could dupe your children into believing they are eating a sweet, crunchy candy while really what they are eating is a nutritious, dried fruit with no added sugar, salt or preservatives.

 

What’s the go-to snack(s) with your kids? Suggestions? Advice?
