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? […]
