It doesn’t take a genius to know that the organics food market is exploding, and that’s especially true where babies and kids are concerned. When my girls were toddlers, I introduced them to some bunny-shaped cheddar crackers, but truthfully, they were just as happy with their Goldfish. Today, you’d be remiss not to experiment with organic foods; there’s no shortage of options for babies and toddlers alike, and if you’re trying to expand your child’s culinary horizons, this is the time to do it. We asked one of our mom testers to sample Plum Organics’ Mighty 4 Essential Nutrition Bars with her 10-month-old son, and find out whether they were worth checking out. “He LOVES these,” she enthused. “I love that there are vegetables in there.” Available in a variety of fruit/veggie combos like blueberry carrot and strawberry spinach, these nutritious bars are packed with whole grains, vitamins and minerals. If you’re a mom on the go, these bars travel well and are perfect in a pinch. And as your child grows, temperamental tots won’t even know good stuff is hidden in there. Says our mom tester of her growing boy, “When he gets a little older, if he gets picky, I will feel good knowing that he gets a little veggie in his snack! This is something I will definitely keep buying!” Plum Organics Mighty 4 Essential Nutrition Bars come in packs of six, and are available in Target, Buy Buy Baby and online.
In a Nutshell: Healthy eating that’s convenient too, bar none.
