As the mother of a growing toddler [boy], I learned (early on) to always keep snacks in my diaper bag for hunger ’emergencies’. Declan has a hearty appetite, and I often find myself out running errands longer than expected, with a cranky little guy (don’t mess with his meals). Or, we’re out to eat and the food is taking longer than usual to arrive. Because Declan associates his high chair with food, when you put him in the chair, food had better follow shortly! So, having healthy things for Declan to snack on are a must.
I often pack something healthy, like grapes or a cheese stick, if I know we’re going to be out during a meal time. But, I’m unable to predict changes in our schedule, or when D is going to start another growth spurt and have a non-stop voracious appetite. Earth’s Best snacks are my go-to for a quick, healthy snack on-the-go. Because they’re shelf-stable, Earth’s Best pouches are a diaper bag staple for those hunger emergencies.
The first food pouch Declan ever tried was an Earth’s Best Yogurt Smoothie. We were embarking on our first long weekend trip out-of-town, with Declan eating solids, and wanted some quick and easy food pouches for the road trip and go-to items for mealtimes. We chose Earth’s Best products because they are organic and made with whole grains. I was, admittedly, a little crazy about the food Declan ate early on (I made all of his food – this occasion was his FIRST time eating pre-packaged foods) and I wanted only the best if I had to give him packaged foods; I trusted Earth’s Best.
That weekend trip created a Yogurt Smoothie Demon! Declan fell in love with the yogurt smoothies, and still goes crazy when he sees a food pouch. When we’re at home, I make smoothies for Declan using our Little Green Pouches (LOVE them), but they don’t travel well [without a cooler].
All of the items Earth’s Best sent us to try have received a thumbs-up from Declan. The Sunny Days Snack Bars are a great afternoon snack for Declan (and great to keep in my diaper bag). The Barley Toddler Biscuits have been great for teething, as well as keeping D occupied while I’m cooking dinner (this kid LOVES food).
