Wake up. Get ready. Drive the kids to Mimi’s. Go to work. Teach/Pump/Teach/Pump/Plan. Meetings. Drive home. Feed the kids. Go see the new new house. Errands. Stuff to do. People to see. Always on the go and in the car and not a lot of down time. Welcome to our every day life, and I’m sure the every day life of most people with kids (and a lot without kids, too!) Life is BUSY. Non-stop chaos, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Since we’re always on the run and not really at home much, it’s so vital that we have snacks and treats and are prepared for meltdowns and hungry kiddos, which is where Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM come in to play! Rather than cookies, dummies, or candy, I love to be armed with these natural snacks (that totally taste like chips!)
Now, ya’ll know I love Lil’ Beanies- I’ve written about them before and shared my love for them since Anissa was a baby! She loved them (and still does!) and has passed on her affinity for these snacks to her little brother. So, anytime we hit the Baby aisle at Walmart, that’s one of the first things she grabs. We’re suckers for the White Cheddar and Broccoli flavor, and original is delicious, too!
The kids love Lil’ Beanies because of the taste and ease, when they are in the car, getting antsy, or can’t wait for dinner. I, on the other hand, love them because they are the first bean-based snack, made from the goodness of navy beans to deliver 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value), 1 gram of fiber, and 10% Daily Value of Vitamin E per serving. Plus, they are baked and naturally flavored, so you don’t have to worry that your little ones are eating junk food!
I also love how easy they are for Tino to eat, whether by themselves or as a tasty trail mix (think pretzels, Lil’ Beanies, and crackers all mixed together for a savory mix!) We enjoyed them as a perfect, healthy, outdoor snack today 🙂
