Happy Baby Review & Giveaway...

Like all Moms I put a lot of thought into what my children eat.   I want them to eat healthy things (at least most of the time!) and things that are made from wholesome ingredients.  When I heard about Happy Baby I knew I would be on the right track with my goal!  Happy Baby is the leading brand in premium baby and toddler meals in the US selling it's organic foods in over 5000 stores.  Happy Baby even works with noted pediatrician Dr. Sears to ensure their foods are optimally nutritious for your little diner!  I just had to give this stuff a try. 

I set out to have the kids try a wide variety of Happy Baby items and my kiddo's were happy to oblige.  First on the list?  Yes Peas and Thank You Carrots (how cute is that name??).  Baby R gobbled both right up happily.  The carrots are just that carrots...nothing else which I just love.  The peas are flavored with a touch of  mint which is known to ease some colic symptoms.  So, with the frozen Baby Purees you are feeding your baby nothing but the organic fruits and veggies you want them to eat.  No yucky additives you can't pronounce here!  Next on my list?  The Happy Bellies Organic Multi Grain Cereal.  I mixed this in with Baby R's apple sauce and I am not sure she noticed the difference from her other baby cereal but I sure did.  First off the cereal was organic which is great but it also contains probiotics and DHA for brain and eye development.  This is not  your average baby cereal!

My final testing on Baby R was "snacky" stuff. She has just started with finger food in the past month and she really, really loves her snacks.  She tried the Happy Puffs first and she really liked those in both the banana and the greens flavors.  I tried one too and though they are less sweet than the other puffs on the market I don't think this is a bad thing at all.  They have 1/2 the sugar of other leading brands and are sweetened with fruit juice.  They were still flavorful and melted in your mouth quickly.  They are also a little less "bulky" than other puffs which gave me some extra comfort about the choking factor.  My 3.5 year old sons actually swiped most of the banana puffs from Baby R so they are a hit with the older set too!  Also a hit with my sons were the Happy Melts Organic Yogurt Snacks.  These fruit snacks are delicious...OK, OK, I swiped lots of these from my kids.  I couldn't help myself!  These little snacks melt right in your little one's  mouth and have live active cultures for their digestive health.  They also come in yummy flavors like mixed berry and banana mango....yum!

I also had my sons, A&W, try out some of the Happy Bites.  Happy Bites are the frozen, convenience foods kids love but with a twist...hidden veggies!  You will find chicken bites, mac and cheese and salmon sticks in kid friendly sizes that are packed with all kinds of goodness.  These are not your typical tator tots and nuggets!  A&W really enjoyed the salmon sticks and those will be a "go-to" quick lunch for me to have on hand for sure.  A was more into the chicken bites than W.  W is a little sensitive about textures and the nuggets were more of a creamy texture than he would like...other than that a hit all around!

Something I really love about the Happy Baby Company that I love (even beyond them creating healthy and convenient foods for my kiddos) is that they are making a difference in our world.  For every package of Happy Baby you buy they, through Project Peanut Butter, feed one hungry child in Malawi and Sierra Leone for an entire day.  Now that is something you can feel good about!  Read more about Project Peanut Butter here.
