My family is a hungry bunch. We eat about every two hours which means that I have to pack snacks everywhere we go. If you know me you know that I love making home cooked meals and snacks for my boys. I prefer to feed them wholesome and nutritious food over easy crunchy snacks but often times the transportation and cleanup is just not worth it. These Gerber Grabbers are great for both my baby and toddler when we are on the go because they contain two servings of fruit. They are mess free and come in appetizing flavor combos that the boys can agree on which doesn’t happen very often. I like that I can buy a bunch of them at once and keep them in my bag without worrying about them staying cold or going bad. With two kids the last thing I want is to be doing more work and worrying more than I have to. I love that for once the healthier option is the easier option! It’s a no brainer to throw these into my purse and take with us wherever we go.
Honestly, I normally always buy the organic version
of well, everything, but Gerber asked me to check out these pouches with the new Smart Flow spout so I bought these instead. The coupon does work on the organic ones though which is amazing! The Smart Flow spout regulates how much gets squeezed through the top at a time and limits the mess considerably which is ideal for babies and toddlers.
We did a form of Baby Led Weaning with my baby so he is very independent with his eating. For those of you who are curious, we skipped feeding him from a spoon and started with things he could easily pick up and chew. Over time we’ve added in things like hummus that he eats from a spoon but the majority of his food he eats with his hands. He is supervised at all times with food but the amount he eats is entirely dependent on him. I will say that BLW is way messier but for us has been totally worth it. The Gerber Grabbers are perfect for him to eat on the go because it encourages his independence but keeps his hands from getting sticky.
My toddler on the other hand never stops. He is a constant whirling ball of energy and eats like a teenage boy. These are great for him when we are at the park or in the car where he needs to quickly eat something before getting back to chasing the birds and pretending the ground is lava.
Grab your coupon here and pick some up from your local Kroger or Ahold chain. I picked up a bunch at our local Fred Meyer to keep on hand to toss in my bag.
