When I was hired by The Women Bloggers to participate in this campaign led by Kendal King Group on behalf of Nestle I was super excited! My daughter’s diet is vegetarian and pretty clean. Which makes it hard to find snacks for her outside of fruits and veggies.
When Miss M started eating foods I looked into a ton of different puff snacks and really couldn’t find anything that I felt had nutritional value and that were not made of wheat. I ended up going with traditional rice puffs (think Rice Crispy’s) which honestly still didn’t have much nutrients. She likes them, but it drove me insane because they were so tiny and ended up everywhere! Besides, I’m not going to lie I always felt a little guilty because I felt like I was feeding her cardboard!
When I was offered to try #GerberLilBeanies I said yes right away! They had all the features that I previously was looking for!
- Made out of white beans and has 2g of protein per serving which means real nutrients
- Made with rice flour so no wheat
- Big enough for her to hold and not make a huge mess
- No GMO’s, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors
- Cost effective at $1.86 per container
Check! Check! Check! Check! Check! Yes, please!
Miss M just loves them! Check out this video of the first time she had them. She just wanted some more!
Mom confession: I’ve been sneaking in the kitchen and eating the White Cheddar & Broccoli Lil’ Beanies while Miss M isn’t watching. Because if she sees them she goes crazy wanting some too! Here is proof that she loves them.
I am so happy to be introduced to these right before Ryan’s race season starts. The cans are easy to just toss in a bag and go. It will make race day snacking (for Miss M and I both!) a breeze!
If you are like me, wanting a nutritious, clean snack for your toddler, make sure to try out the Gerber Lil’ Beanies! They have two flavors Original (Sea Salt) and White Cheddar & Broccoli. You can find them at Walmart starting March 12th!
