When it comes to toddler snacks, the biggest challenge can often be just being prepared! Having snacks that your child likes and ones that you feel good about giving them can be a pairing that doesn’t always come as easily as you might like. We recently discovered some brand new options that are working great for Carrigan whether we’re at home or on the go!
Toddler Snacks Made Easy with Lil’ Beanies
On our recent shopping trip to Target (let me be honest, we visit at least once a week), I was on the hunt for a new lamp, lightbulbs, sparkling water, and some toddler snacks for Carrigan. Weston had put in a request for baseball cards and Carrigan was out shopping with me.
It’s fun to take her shopping with me and when I’m feeling brave, I even let her get out of the cart and shop the aisles with me.
Of course, when I do that, I always end up buying something I didn’t really plan on. And that’s not including all the things I pick out that I didn’t plan on! The girl knows how to shop in Target! A girl after my own heart!
As we shopped the aisles, she ended up picking up a doll and adding it to the cart. She wanted to shop all the food aisles for a “num num” so we headed to the baby and toddler department to find her some snacks. She has a few favorites when it comes to little finger foods but I’m always on the hunt for more options because she also likes variety.
The Challenge with Toddler Snacks
The biggest challenge I have when it comes to buying toddler snacks for Carrigan is that she is definitely one to stick with the familiar. So even if I find something new I want her to try, it can be a challenge to get her to step outside of her box. Sometimes she’ll just go for it, but most of the time she likes to stick with what she knows.
So when she spotted Gerber® Lil’ Beanies™ they looked a lot like some other Gerber® snacks she enjoys which meant she was interested.
Getting them interested in one of the most important things when it comes to food and toddler snacks. Carrigan is always on the go so it can be hard to get her to stop and snack. But if she doesn’t, then we will all be cranky later.
So I was willing to try out the new Lil’ Beanies™ and let Carrigan choose a can. She went for the White Cheddar & Broccoli variety and was ready to open them in the store! That’s a sign of true toddler excitement!
