Yesterday, the image that popped up in my Facebook timeline was from this time last year. I had taken a picture of sweet little Lola going to town on a platter of pulled pork and beans from a BBQ joint in Savannah, GA. We were on our southern vacation and we had marveled at just how much big people food she threw down. ┬áSince then, her love for food has increased ten fold. She’s totally got opinions now about what she thinks is delicious and what she’s rather not eat. ┬áHer top ten foods are cheese, broccoli, cheese puffs, beans, rice, turkey, oatmeal, apples, cheese sticks, and granola bars.

So, when I stumbled upon Lil’ Beanies from Gerber in the baby aisle, I knew they’d be a hit.

Reasons why mom loves them:

  • made from navy beans
  • 2 grams of protein
  • 1 gram of fiber
  • 10% of daily value of vitamin E per serving
  • They’re baked, not made with genetically engineered ingredients, and are naturally flavored!
  • Easy to find! They’re the first bean based snack in the baby aisle!

This summer, we are going to be spending a ton of time at the beach house on Cape Cod. We are so lucky to have a place to go, and we plan to go a lot! One of the things I love about Lil Greenies is that I can throw it in my beach bag and know that I’ve got a great snack option for little hands.

What are your summer plans?
