Toddler Snacking with Gerber Lil’ Beanies

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.
