Do you struggle to find good, nutritious foods that your kids actually eat? At our house this is a daily struggle. My kids won’t eat veggies for me, so I am always hiding them in their meals. When I have the time, I’ll make them “secret surprise” muffins which usually include pureed carrot. The kids think they are just their favorite peanut butter and banana muffins. When I don’t have the time to bake them from scratch, I try to find them good snacks that offer similar hidden goodies. That’s how I found Bitsy’s Brainfood!
Bitsy’s Brainfood introduces the worlds first “smart snack” for kids. Designed as a delicious way to nurture your kids’ bodies, minds and imaginations.
-Excellent source of Omega 3 DHA, Vitamins A, B12, B6, D3 and Folic Acid
-Good Source of iron and calcium
Bitsy’s Brainfood comes in a variety of fun flavors for your kids to enjoy and begin to appreciate the flavors they may not usually want to try out. Their flavors include: Zucchini Gingerbread Carrot, Orange Chocolate Beet, Lemon Broccoli, and Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin.
We received a box of Lemon Broccoli to try out for ourselves. My theory is, if my triplets will at least try it– its a success. The box we received is a 2.125 oz box, so perfect for a snack. The is package is small enough to toss into your bag when you need a snack on the go. The cookies actually come in letter shapes, which my kids were really excited to see. That was a huge plus, since one of my boys is really picky about trying out anything new. At first he just wanted to see all of the letters and carry them around talking about each letter. Eventually though, he decided to try it out. He ate about 2 cookies and was done. That’s a success for us! My other son ate a handful of them and had no issues at all. He loved the letters, too and was excited to find new ones as he dug in the box. My daughter tasted one and was done. She isn’t a huge cookie girl anyways, so I wasn’t too surprised. I tasted them myself and thought they were good. I could taste the broccoli, but it wasn’t as strong as eating it fresh (obviously). Overall, it still had a cookie flavor just not as sugary. So, it definitely makes sense that this can help your kids learn to like different flavors. I’m definitely going to try out the other flavors with my kids as well. I think they may really like the Zucchini Gingerbread Carrot ones, too.
