Ah- the joys of toddlers! Toddlerhood can be a never ending struggle about eating healthy. JP is such an active and growing boy and I want to give him the best nutrition to accompany that. Sometimes he and I don’t see eye to eye when it comes to snack options.
But I think we finally found a compromise. We ventured to Publix to grab some vacation essentials and stubbled upon Gerber Lil’ Beanies Snacks in the baby aisle. These little puffs are easy for him to grab, don’t make a mess and we can take them on-the-go without hesitation because they don’t crumble. With two flavors, Original and white Cheddar Broccoli, JP can nosh on them between meals as a healthy option. They are a nutritious alternative to chips.
As the first bean-based snack in the baby aisle, Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM is made from the goodness of navy beans to deliver 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value), 1 gram of fiber, and 10% Daily Value of Vitamin E per serving. A delicious and nutritious treat, your little ones will love it for its taste and you’ll love it for its nutrition. Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM Snack is baked, not made with genetically engineered (GM) ingredients, and is naturally flavored. JP didn’t even know that veggies are baked into the snack!
We put them to the test on our family road trip to Florida. He was kept occupied and munching away without making a mess. There wasn’t a sticky mess to pick up afterwards. It’s a win win snacking option for the both of us!
Right now, Ibotta is offering a $.75 cash back rebate offer for any size or variety of Gerber Lil’ Beanies. I picked up my two flavors at 2/$4.00 at Publix. Save your receipt, scan with Ibotta and you’ll get 2 for $2.50! It’s an awesome deal- while supplies lasts.
We are snacking happier, with less arguing, thanks to Gerber Lil’ Beanies!
