I am always on the lookout for new foods, snacks and goodies to give to my boys when we’re at home and on the go. So, I thought why not post and share what we’re munching on…right!?!? Seasons change and so do their choices, but I came up on a couple new snacks and they have renewed interest in an old one, so check out our “Toddler Favs this Month.” Click to read more about supplements here.
First up, I found these rice rollers. I will admit, I do check out the snacks other parents give their kids at the playgrounds and when we’re out and about. So, since I had noticed this snack on more than a few occasions and finally found them on the shelves at Costco, I decided to go for it. The label says, low fat, low sodium, no cholesterol, gluten free and vegan…I mean easy enough, right? And — they are compact and easy to take on the go. It took a few tries before my boys actually took a liking to them, but now they love them. They have a nice crunch when you bite into them, they are lightly sweetened, so kinda like a rice crispy treat, but way healthier. Plus, they didn’t cost too much either…score!
For whatever reason on that same Costco trip, my older toddler was adamant about getting gummy vitamins. We picked a couple jars of these gummies up and they like them a lot. One every morning and they are always asking for more. I didn’t set out to make sure they got a multivitamin everyday, but a nice supplement to make sure they are taking in more of the “good stuff” they need!
Last on the list this month…and at Costco as well, Danimals Smoothie drinks! They’re pretty small servings and we just stick a straw in the foil top and it’s good to go. It’s an easy yogurt-based smoothie drink that they love. This is an oldie but goodie. They go through phases where they ask for Danimals all the time and this month is one of those months.
Let me know what your toddlers are snacking on this month, I’m always looking for new suggestions!
