Toddler Approved Snack Mix

Now that Sadie is ONE we have the go-ahead to let her eat basically everything. But let's be real...she's been eating what we eat for a while now. She loves her a good snack, and I want to make sure she has plenty of healthy foods to choose from! In fact, I want both of my kids to make healthy choices....so I'm always on the look out for ways to make snacking fun and good for them.

Toddler Approved Snack Mix

So I decided to get creative and came up with our new favorite go-to snack. I wasn't sure if Hudson would like it too, but much to my surprise both kids LOVE it.  Which is a total win in my book!

Toddler Approved Snack Mix

Here's what you'll need to make your own:

  • 1/3 cup Lil’ Beanies(TM) by Gerber®
  • 1/3 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • 1/3 cup yogurt melts
  • 1/3 cup pretzels
  • 1/4 cup raisins

You can get creative and add more or less depending on what you like! Dump everything in to a big bowl and mix it up. Bonus points if you have a little helper.

 Eat immediately or seal in a plastic bag to save for later!

 Sadie totally thinks she is a big girl now that she has her own snack cup!

Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) is a nutritious snack that has 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value) and 1 gram of fiber per serving. So I feel good about giving it to both of my little ones.

Lil' Beanies(TM) are available in original (what I used) and White Cheddar and Broccoli...which are also yummy!

Lil' Beanies(TM) are made from navy beans and naturally flavored with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.   Lil’ Beanies(TM) are baked, not made with genetically engineered (GM) ingredients and have a taste that both my kids love!

We found our Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) at our favorite store....Target of course!

  1. Sounds delicious! And I can relate to being unsure if the 3 (almost 4) year old will like it too... They are so picky!
