Toddler Snacking with Gerber Lil’ Beanies

If your kids are anything like mine, they’ll snack all day but refuse to eat an actual meal. That’s why I’m so glad I found Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM snacks! My girls love snacks but it’s not always easy to find some that are actually healthy.

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!

Once I heard about Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM, I knew I needed to head to my local Publix to check it out. So, yesterday morning, I loaded the girls up and we headed over! My girls love Publix because they know they get a free cookie there!

Before stopping for a free cookie (did I mention my girls like to snack?!), we went to the baby aisle to find the Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM. I love Publix because it’s always so clean and well stocked and organized.

The Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM were sitting right on the top shelf, easy to find. Thanks, Publix!

Since Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM come in two flavors, I decided to get one of each so the girls could try them out. As you can see, E was pretty excited to hold the can! We couldn’t wait to get them home to give them a whirl… after stopping at the bakery for a cookie, of course. Right when we got home, E climbed up in her high chair and wanted to open the cans.

The verdict is in… they were a huge hit! E enjoyed the Original flavor and A liked the White Cheddar and Broccoli. We will for sure be buying these again.
