A Healthy And Convenient Snack for Babies And Kids

By |April 5, 2011 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, Food & Supplements, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

What we parents ultimately desire for when we purchase packaged baby food is a chemical-free, hormone free, hormone disruptor-free, wholesome, nutritious snack to conveniently offer our babies. All that, and of course we want our babies to eat the food too. HappyBaby™ Happy Munchies have proven to fill all of those requirements and then some, making these organic snacks the newest winner of the MACT Excellence Award! One of our mama tester’s comments make us chuckle because of the truth she speaks, “My three-year old is vegetarian, and a picky eater. The Smart Puffs say they are for one year olds, but my three-year old girl loves them: they’re just like Cheetos, only devoid of the horrible additives and preservatives found in conventional brands. But, what’s really exciting is that not only are they devoid of unnatural substances, they are full of good stuff, including the mineral choline, which helps brain development. They are made with broccoli, kale and carrots, among many vitamins and minerals, making them a very smart choice for my little girl who would not eat whole broccoli for a new pony.” Each child is unique. Each child has their own personality and their own way of doing things. Including eating! Sandra’s children (MACT co-founder mama) are a great example of this. Her first child eats whole foods like no other child I have seen. At a very young age I recall her eating a plate of salad and other greens! This is something my 4 year old still won’t take one bite of, and I consider myself an incredibly healthy eater and keep only healthy foods in the house. Sandra’s second child however won’t eat vegetables, won’t even try them. Sandra comments that her son prefers to eat things that come out of a package. Do any of you parents out there relate? […]

Delicious and Healthy: Happy Tot Stage 4 Organic Baby Food Made With Salba

By |December 3, 2010 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, Food & Supplements, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

(An updated post with questions answered regarding Salba) We have put HappyBaby™ puffs and baby food pouches to the test by numerous mom/baby testers in the past and the results were always the same:  Love to the last mouthful!  So, when we were asked to put Happy Tot, Stage 4 baby food pouches through our high-standard testing we agreed to give them a try. These HappyTot pouches were a success with my 16 month old daughter. She is a picky eater but had no trouble getting her to eat these, she actually would pick them out over a cupboard full of other snacks. Each variety smelled great and I knew she was eating well. These worked great as a snack on the go and something quick to grab before dinner. I loved seeing grain mixed through these pouches, and being able to see what the grain offers on  the package itself is a huge plus. This “grain” is Salba®.  Salba®, THE Super Grain, is nature’s most nutritious grain.  It is the best whole food source of Omega 3’s and fiber. Salba is high in protein, fiber and antioxidants. A great source of vitamins and minerals, it is also certified Non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher, and Gluten-Free.  There are 6 different varieties of Salba pouches in HappyBaby’s Level 4 BPA-free pouches.  The recommended age for these pouches is  6+ months although the bigger quantity is for older kids.  We are going to give you insight on those 6 pouches here today as we additionally rave about the nutritional values of Salba®. And as you may have guessed from the perfect track record of happy mom and baby testers giving us feedback on HappyBaby Pouches, Happy Tot BPA-free pouches is the newest winner of our MACT (Mom Approved- Child Tested) Excellence Award!

Loaded With Nutritional Goodness, and Your Kids Will Eat It!

By |February 19, 2009 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Food & Supplements, Product Reviews|

I think every parent goes through the “I can’t get my child to eat anything healthy!” phases.  Believe me, we have tried many of the sneaky ways to hide nutritional goodness in food, let me tell you.  Like the spinach in the blueberry cake trick. But I have to say, Parma! really does take home the cake when it comes to a nutrient dense sprinkle (vegan Parmesan cheese) you can add to nearly any meal. If the phrase “vegan” Parmesan cheese makes you turn up your nose already, wait just one moment.  If I haven’t tried this personally, and if I have not (and my toddler too) fallen in love with the stuff, I would be thinking the same thing. Truth be told, I have never had a vegan cheese that I thought tasted good, not until we laid our chompers on Parma!  It is DELICIOUS!  Yumm, yumm, yumm yumm yumm.  And my little girl eats it right out of the container if she can get to it.

Free of High Fructose Corn Syrup: Organic Fruit Lollipops by Yummy Earth

By |February 8, 2009 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Food & Supplements, Product Reviews|

My 2.5 year old loves these natural lollipops, and I was really surprised when I tried one myself.  These Yummy Earth’s Organic Fruit Lollipops are delicious, not too sweet and very fruity! And since we are always on the hunt for safe alternatives here at SAFbaby, we had to rave about the ingredients in these fruit lollipops: Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Tapioca Syrup, Non-GMO Citric Acid, Organic and Natural flavors (Watermelon, Lemon Oils, Pomegranate, Mango), Organic and Natural Color, Red Cabbage, Purple Cabbage. Yep, a really safe alternative to other candies on the market filled with high fructose corn syrup (which has been tagged to often contain to GMOs and mercury), artificial colorings, and other harmful ingredients. So when I see the contrast of offering my little one a treat filled with synthetic flavorings, colorings and other harmful toxins, this natural (and really sweet) alternative is a no-brainer. […]
