We received a few snacks from Sprout Foods to try out and my kiddo has really enjoyed their healthy goodies. I really like the ingredients, and the fact that they are organic is an added plus!
From Sprout Organic Foods: The daily recommended allowance for fruits and vegetables for children between the ages of two and six is 5 or more servings per day (2 fruits, 3 vegetables). This can be quite challenging to do in one day, especially if you have a picky eater on your hands. I loved these tips from Sprout Organic Foods and thought I would share them with you.
Smoothies make great breakfasts, snacks and “treats.” Look for recipes that include fruits, vegetables and protein.
2) Yogurt Mix-ins
Mix fresh fruit or no-sugar-added jam into your child’s Greek yogurt.
3) Veggies and Dip
Toddlers love dipping things, so offer fresh or steamed veggies with dipping sauces. Carrot sticks, sugar snap peas, or fresh or steamed broccoli with ranch dip all make great snacks.
4) Fruit Blends/Purees
Look for fruit blends and purees with multiple fruit ingredients, not just apples!
Mix fresh berries such as blueberries, blackberries and strawberries in the batter before cooking your pancakes and waffles.
6) Toddler Snacks
Toddlers love snacks that are made just for their little hands like crispy veggie chews and yogurt bites.
Sprout Organic Foods has really fun options for toddler snacks. My kiddo really liked the purple berry and carrot crispy chews. I am also a big fan of any pouch that sneaks in veggies like butternut squash.
