Is your baby sick of the same puree that you have been making her at home? Or better yet, are you sick of giving her the same old same old everyday? Just as in life, after the same schedule, the same food, the same clothes, the same classes, you just want to change things up.
I am the first to say that making your own baby food at home is probably the best thing you could do after breastfeeding your child. However, not every parent has the time to make fresh baby food, day after day, and sometimes it could become a tedious task when you have 100 other things to do on your daily list.
Well, we live in a day and age where companies are dedicated to solely making the best baby food known to man. They put everything from DHA, Omega fatty acids, Vitamin E, veggies, multiple sources of protein, and even antioxidents. Plus, they come organic, gluten-free, vegan, wheat-free, dairy-free, and nut-free. You just name it and it probably exists.
My mom fed me Gerber on occasion (at least thats what she tells me) and since I eat mostly organic, I feed my children organic food whether I make it or buy it in a package. One thing my children and I have on a daily basis are the HAPPYBABY Organic Puffs (we purchase it in cases). Since I already trusted HAPPYBABY with the quality of their Organic Puffs, I wanted to try out their other line of products.
HappyBellies Organic Oatmeal Cereal: Tastes like oatmeal but it’s better because it has DHA and probiotic immunity support. It’s vegan and does not have dairy or soy. After trying it, it left me full for a couple of hours and my baby was completely satisfied (she actually did not spit it out). BPA free.
HappyPuffs Organic Green Puffs: This was a no brainer. We already LOVE it! If you want a cheerios alternative without high fructose corn syrup and half the sugar, this would be a winner. Plus, it has some veggies hidden in it (organic kale, organic spinach, and organic collard greens) and it does NOT taste like veggies, very sweet and yummy! It does not contain dairy, corn, or soy. Packaging is BPA free and recyclable.
HappyMelts Organic Mixed Berry Melts: I am allergic to dairy, so I could not taste test it but my preschooler did. She loved it and ate the whole thing in one sitting. My 1 year old did not like the texture, so she kept spitting it out. It does not contain soy, gluten, or wheat.
HappyBites Mac + Cheese Bites: The mac + cheese comes in a fun little patty form, which definitely caught my attention and my my daughter’s. Both my preschooler and 1 year old ate it like it was their last meal. They both cleaned their plate which probably meant that it was yummy! One thing to note is that it also comes with 1 serving of veggies (yay!).
After testing out the HAPPYBABY line, I can say that they are the forefront in packaged baby and children food products. Whether your child needs a nutrient dense food option or they have celiac disease, HAPPYBABY has pretty much everything to meet the needs of your growing baby.
