Good food for the litte ones

Don't forget about the Milan Maternity Sofia Giveaway, enter HERE!

When I was pregnant with my son and I imagined having a child, I pictured a perfect little child who wore what I wanted him to wear, slept when I wanted him to sleep, and ate what I wanted him to eat. So far, he does none of those things. So it looks like my mom was the only person to have the perfect child when she had me.

When it comes to him eating what I want him to eat, he is the pickiest eater! He eats toast, crackers, Cocoa Pebbles, chips, fries, apple sauce, yogurt, and a couple of other things. Not the best diet for a 2 and a half year old. Which means I have to cram the good stuff in when I can.

I have two "go-to" foods that he has everyday. It is my only way of making sure he gets at least a little bit of the good stuff.


The first is YoBaby and YoToddler yogurt. With "meal" combinations of apple & sweet potato, pear & green beans, and peach & squash I finally have a way to get some vegetables in to him. My son loves them, which is great since they are organic, have live active cultures, and have vitamins and important nutrients. And seriously, with as picky as an eater as he, it was such a relief when I found these and he liked them so much.

The second is something that I recently discovered and am probably a little behind on. My son requests the GoGo SqueeZ apple sauce every-single-day for lunch! They are made from 100% fruit, and have yummy combinations like apple-banana and apple-strawberry. Plus their pouch makes it perfect for a snack when you are out and about, and my son loves having something to eat in a fun way.

There are so many things that we have to worry about as parents, so it's nice to have to worry a little less about getting in some healthy food. If you have anything that you've found, do share!

Hi- thanks for your post, great tips! I was wondering, is the GoGo Squeez packet resealable?

My son LIVED on the YoBaby and YoToddler yogurt. Those used to be the only things he would eat besides straight up fruit!

@Meg, yup the GoGo Squeez packets are resealable. They have a twist off cap. They're great because you can put the cap back on and throw it in the cooler or fridge etc. and you don't have to worry about it spilling! They are also great because your kiddo can hold them and feed themselves which they love. You just have to play close attention so they don't squeeze it all over the place : )

Yes, Meg, as Amy mentioned they do have a twist off cap. Although I should warn that I've caught my 2.5 year old son putting them in his mouth, so you have to be careful about that.

The applesauce is a great option for teens that just got their wisdom teeth removed. :)
