Snacks For Your Toddler

I feel like I could go on & on about how much better I could do when it comes to feeding my kids.  Our girls, especially the younger one, are both pretty picky and would rather snack all day long than have any sort of a meal plan.  I've tried so many things for Avalon, including every kind of pasta and meat that exists, and yet it never fails - she turns her head to it and would prefer living off of breastmilk and any kind of yogurt.  I'm starting to think this may go on forever.

Yet if there's anything I've learned in my four years of parenting, it's pick your battles.  So if snacking all day is what she needs right now, then it's what she needs.  I try to find what she likes best and then buy stock in it. ;)  And you guys, today I am teaming with Gerber to bring you Lil' Beanies, something our Avalon Elle actually likes!!!


Waverly has been eating the Gerber snacks for years and actually still loves them, so I was really excited to try a new option.  These are made with beans & are baked, so they have the added bonus that they are nutritious and we loved that they come in two flavors, original & white-cheddar broccoli.  Avalon loved them, they have become our new go-to for at home and I've been bringing them with us when we are out as well!


You can get the Lil' Beanies at your local Target, we have already been through both of these packs and will be back soon.  They also come in handy if you need to keep your babe sitting in the cart for the rest of your Target trip, because I am totally that mom who breaks into it before we get to the register.  Please tell me I am not the only one.


I would LOVE to hear if you have any other snack or meal ideas for your little one, please share if you do! :)  And happy one week until the fourth, we are getting very excited over here!
