My Go-To Toddler Snack!

Now that Emmi is eating actual table food I have had to get a lot more creative in what I feed her. Now, I can't just open up her usual purred baby food and feed her anymore. She wants only what she sees us eating, and I don't blame her. She LOVES bread and cheese, ha ha. So I like to make her a grilled cheese sandwich or quesadillas that I can cut up into little pieces and she can feed herself. That takes time though, I know not a lot of time but when I have a hungry baby yelling at me for food it feels like an eternity! This is where our new favorite Gerber snack comes in, the Gerber Lil' Beanies . As soon as I hear Emmi starting to get fussy as I prepare dinner for all of us, I pull these Lil' Beanies out and lay out a few on her high chair table. She gets to snack and feed herself on some yumminess and I get to prepare dinner with one less person yelling at me! ha ha. That's a Win/Win for me. 

I love how these Gerber Lil' Beanies are so easy to have on hand. They are a perfect mess-free snacking alternative. So when things start getting a little crazy in the kitchen, Spence can take Emmi to her room and have her play around and snack while dinner gets prepared. The best part is that these Lil' Beanies are baked! Made with navy beans, the first bean-based snack and are naturally flavored. They have no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Another Win/Win! Emmi approved for sure. They have two flavors, Original and white cheddar with broccoli. 

I love shopping at my local Walmart. This is where I found our Gerber Lil' Beanies snack. Walmart never disappoints and they always have anything I need for Emmi right on the baby isle. Also, do any of you use the Ibotta app? If you aren't already make sure to get that so you can get a great deal on these Gerber Lil' Beanies snacks. So don't just take my word for it. Head down to your local Walmart and grab your little one some Gerber Lil' Beanies
