A freebie from Little Blends

I'm a big fan of getting kids to eat their veggies. I mean, what parent isn't? While my kids are generally very good about eating vegetables, it hasn't always been the case.

My oldest has texture issues. He really doesn't like mushy foods. That means most cooked vegetables, he won't eat. Give him raw veggies and he'll chow down. But not all veggies are edible in raw form, so he eats a lot of the same things.

I'm also not above "hiding" vegetables. I do it, not so much to sneak nutrition in to my kids, but to say to them "Hey, you just ate squash and it wasn't so bad!" or when they claim they've never eaten it before to let them know they had eaten it and liked it. Once they get over that fear of the unknown, they are much more likely to try the vegetable again.

Little Blends is a yogurt that does the work of finding the right balance between fruits and veggies and sweetness to entire kids into eating something that might otherwise be rejected. The real bonus to me with Little Blends is not so much what it has but what it's lacking: There's no added hormones, no artificial ingredients or flavors and no high-fructose corn syrup. For those of you who like to read labels (I know I do!) Little Blends also have 25 percent the recommended daily value of protein, 20 percent daily value of calcium, 20 percent of Vitamin A, plus D, Iron and probiotics. They also contain DHA and omega-3s which help with brain development.

Yogurt is a super food in general, but Little Blends have made super super food by pumping it full of extras.

  1. My son would love the apple and butternut squash. He is 17 months and we already have to do the "you like this, you have had it before" routine. oy.

  2. Arden agreed to try the apple and butternut squash since there are "no lumps" - success! So that's what I will get if I can find it.

  3. I'm just happy whenever I see yogurt with no gelatin. Ben is almost 9 months old, and thankfully he'll try just about anything (I know my days are numbered with that!). I think the banana & sweet potato would be right up his alley.

  13. My boys love yogurt. This would be great since it has veggies in it to. I would try the Strawberry and Carrot first than the Apple and Butternut Squash. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. We'd have to try the Apple & Butternut Squash - I'm pretty sure that one would be a hit! (So glad to see none of them are pea flavored, LOL)

  16. Most likely the apple and butter nut squash...but I would probably let my kids pick out what they wanted at the store!
