I feel like I’m on a never-ending quest to find nutritious products that my kids enjoy. Finding the right ingredients, that both parties agree on, takes a little bit of sleuth work. I’ve gathered some of my favorite product picks that we always keep around the house, PLUS a kid-friendly dinner idea – Creamy Zoodles & Meatballs – using some of these products. It’s an easy meal solution that’s both mom & kid approved.

Since my kid’s are both super picky, I’m very excited to try some of these new products from the brands I already love. Babbleboxx sent us a package that’s full of wholesome products that make mealtime easy. These are some great go-to ingredients when you just want to throw together an easy dinner.
I put together this easy Creamy Zoodle & Meatballs recipe, using some of the products that they sent me. While you can make it over the stove, it’s easy to just microwave the ingredients together. Just heat & eat! The best part? It’s a great vegetarian option and full of vegetables.
Awesome Products We Love From Babbleboxx
If you’ve ever tried drinking straight Apple Cider Vinegar, you know that it isn’t the easiest task for sensitive taste buds. North Coast Organic has put the probiotic benefits into two great products that make it easy to digest: the North Coast Organic Apple Sauce and the North Coast Organic Drinking Vinegar. Probiotics help support a healthy immune system and aid in digestion.
My youngest loved trying the applesauce! I love that they’re a great option for on-the-go snacks.

We love coconut butter and use it on everything! Manna is a coconut butter spread available in coconut, chocolate and almond flavors from Nutiva.
I’ve always enjoyed traditional coconut oil, but it’s exciting to branch out and experience the different flavor options. It’s a great spread that we put on toast, crackers, raw fruit or use it in baking.
The biggest bonus: there is only one gram of sugar per serving, with no dairy or gluten! That’s a huge win for moms.

Kids love to dip and have their pick of sauces! I can’t blame them, it just makes food more fun. The Tessamae brand is certified organic with wholesome ingredients. Plus, both of these sauces are USDA Certified Organic, Whole30 Approved, Keto Approved, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Vegan, Non-GMO, and with No Sugar Added. It’s great when my kids and I can eat the same thing – no matter what diet plan I’m following!
The Tessemae’s Pantry Classic Ranch is thick and creamy with a great zest. It’s perfect to use as a salad dressing or dipping mini carrots into.
Tessemae’s Ketchup has a little secret: it’s sweetened with dates and balsamic vinegar. My kids would never know! They love ketchup on everything and this a great “better for you” option. I know we’ll grab this from the pantry everyday.
We do meatless Monday every week! Even if you aren’t vegetarian, it’s easy to appreciate the great taste of Gardein Classic Meatless Meatballs. They’re a versatile product that I keep in my freezer to throw into soups, into pasta or as a sub. My kids would never know that they’re not traditional meatballs.
Gardein Classic Meatless Meatballs are Non-GMO Project Verified, dairy-free, milk-free, lactose-free, and contain no meats.
Plus, they are free from artificial colors & flavors, preservatives, cholesterol, trans fats, PHOs, and MSG. I use them in my Creamy Zoodles & Meatballs recipe below.
I have something to admit: I was so excited to try this NEW sauce, that I opened it before I took these photos! That’s a big blogger no no, but I couldn’t help my excitement. It’s made with aged parmesan and real butter. Try it in their Real Deal 3-Minutes Mac recipe!
It’s also what makes my Creamy Zoodle and Meatball recipe full of flavor. It’s very low carb – which is always a bonus when I’m enjoying what my kids eat too.
