My son used to be an amazing eater. I would brag all about how he would eat absolutely anything that we gave him. Then he turned two, and that all changed. He will like one thing this week, and hate it next week. Sometimes I feel like I should stop trying to get him to eat anything healthy because I know he’s not going to eat it anyway. One trick that I learned was to try and get drinks or snacks that are healthy for him. Sometimes I will even make a smoothie packed full of fruits and veggies and he always loves those! One of the snacks that I get are the Gerber Lil’ Beanies!
The first bean-based snack in the baby aisle, Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM is made from the goodness of navy beans to deliver 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value), 1 gram of fiber, and 10% Daily Value of Vitamin E per serving. A delicious and nutritious treat, your little ones will love it for its taste and you’ll love it for its nutrition. Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM Snack is baked, not made with genetically engineered (GM) ingredients, and is naturally flavored! The only thing I’m disappointed about is that I can’t feed him these for every meal!
Summer is probably my family’s favorite time of the year. The kids absolutely love playing outside. We probably go outside once a day and regardless of how long we stay out there, it seems they are never ready to come in. I have also found that the Gerber Lil’ Beanies are great snacks to bring outside! The kids can eat a quick healthy snack and then get back to playing. I don’t have to worry about trying to bring fussy kids in for a snack and my kids still get a healthy snack.
It’s also really great for when the kids have play dates with their friends (okay, it’s mostly a mommy play date). These kids are all over the place – outside, on the play gym, inside, down in the basement. I should be a lot skinnier with how much I chase around these kids so much. With the Gerber Lil’ Beanies being in the resealable container, I just pop on the lid and bring it to our next location with us which has been so helpful.
We found the Gerber Lil’ Beanies at our local Target. The kids were with me, as usual, and they needed to help me get them off the shelf and they wanted to hold them the whole time until we got to the register. We may have ended up with more items than I anticipated. I swear it’s a superpower to go into Target and only get the items on your list!
And here is the exciting part! There is an iBotta offer live for Gerber Lil’ Beanies (Buy 1, Get $1)! So if you were wanting to try these, now is the time!
