HappyBaby = Happy Bellies!!!

I have mentioned Happy Family brand foods quite a bit on my blog, but have yet to post my review of their wonderful products. The items I love the most from their line is the Happy Melts organic yogurt snacks andtheir Happy Bites frozen toddler meals.

The Happy Melts yogurts snacks are baby sized freeze-dried yogurt drops made from 100% organic ingredients. These are great when babies are developing their pincher grasp (when they pick things up with their fingers) and also to get some extra calcium and vitamin D in your little one. When we think of portable baby snacks we usually think of puffs or wheat O's. But with this great product, carbohydrates don't need to be the only food group in the finger food category! Besides being organic and tasting great (...I tasted the banana-mango.. totally yummy! ), these yogurt drops also contain probotics. probotics are the "good bacteria" that helps support babies immune system and helps them maintain a healthy flora in their digestive tract. probotics are naturally found in breast milk and are put into some infant formulas as well. Using a product like this, that contains robotics, will help continue that support they received from the breast milk or infant formula.

Being that my 2 year old will be a 3 year old soon, I am always on the look out for "big" kid foods. The Happy Bites line has frozen meals for the preschooler. With meals like Mac + Cheese patties and Salmon sticks (my Fave), you can rest assured that your toddler is getting a nutritionally complete, organic and kid-friendly meal. Each box has a character theme, a secret agent animal, with a description and their mission....super cute! Best part about these meals are they each contain protein, veggies and complex carbohydrates... a complete meal!!

Gaa Gaa for Goji !!

Goji, one of the new superfruits, contains a boat load of cancer fighting antioxidants. It also has 18 of the 21 amino acids, more beta carotene than carrots (which is phytochemical.. fights free radicals ), Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Zinc,Selenium, Vit B2 and Vit C and if that weren't enough they taste de-lish!
 Goji Gourmet makes these heavenly cookies that contain Goji berries. The berries are dried out like raisins and added into a tasty aray of cookies from Goji chocolate chip to the exotic Goji cherry cacao.  I was SO pleasantly suprised to find these cookies soft and chewy...Just like a cookie should be... and when I looked at the ingredients it got even better..wholesome,organic,natural ingredients...SERIOUSLY!!
Tastes great...healthly.... calorie friendly.. what isn't to love about these cookies! It even passed the 2 year old test!
 I am really posting this for the moms out there, more so than the kiddos.  Goji Gourmet makes these 100 calorie packs that have 4 cookies.. that's right girls.. 4 cookies!! These are something to have in the diaperbag or pocketbook for YOU!!  These 100 calorie packs are much healthier than other brands ( won't mention names..we all know who they are ) 100 calorie packs because they contain what is called a "functional" food. You are getting your cookie fix, with the extra benefits that Goji berries provide.

Peter Rabbit Organics- Pure Fruit in a Pouch!!!

I had the pleasure of trying  Peter Rabbit Organics Fruit puree pouches. These awesome pouches are 100% organic, shelve stable (...meaning easy to tote along in a diaper bag or pocket book..etc), no added sugars and 100% pure!! That is what sold me! when you look at the ingredients you will see what I am talking about, nothing but the fruit it's titled with!  Another great feature of this product is its top. It has a screw on/off top so if the little doesn't finish it all, the top can go back on and be but in the fridge for later use. It also has an anti-swallow sipper, which makes this particularly great for those just starting to take from a sippy cup.  These pouches come in Strawberry& Banana, Apple & Grape and Mango Banana Orange. The Mango is my particular favorite ...Yes I do taste all the products I recieve.
Hey, If It doesn't taste good to me..what are the chances that it will to a 2 year old !
Overall, this is an excellent chocie for babies starting at 6 months to preschoolers... and 28 year old dietitians as well  !
