A while ago, I posted about HappyBaby Greens Puffs, but since then I’ve come to realize there is a lot more to offer from this brand! I really enjoy the HappyTOT Pouches and Happy Times Crazy Crunchies and Sunny Buddies.
In regards to the HappyTOT Pouches, they carry some great fruit/veggie combos (which I love), but additionally, they include chia seeds (their registered variety is called Salba). I’ve just begun learning about these little “super grains,” but for those of you who don’t know, they are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. When mixed with water, chia seeds form a gel-like outer layer which aids in digestion and absorption of fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Although my son eats table food now, I will bring these pouches when on-the-go because I know they have a little more bulk and will leave him feeling satisfied. The varieties my son loves are apple and butternut squash as well as green pea, pear and pea. Because they’re organic, there’s no need to worry about GMOs or harmful additives.
My new favorite finds are the Crazy Crunchies and Sunny Buddies, both in the Happy Times family.
The Sunny Buddies are bite-sized pouches of sunflower butter and berry jam (pictured on the left). They taste just like mini peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, without the peanuts! (Yes, if you picked up on that, I’ve tried them! Yum!) :) They are made mainly from shredded rice flour so they’re very light and dissolve quickly in your mouth – perfect for little ones.
Crazy Crunchies are freeze-dried carrot apple bits (pictured on the right). Although they look like mini Cheetos, they couldn’t be further from them! They contain all natural, organic ingredients and pack a very robust and flavorful punch. They’re definitely crunchy (hence the name), but like the Sunny Buddies, dissolve quickly when in your mouth (yup, tried these too!).
Both the Sunny Buddies and Crazy Crunchies are packed in individual pouches, great for on-the-go and portion control. I highly recommend these to moms trying to find convenient finger foods for their little ones. My 1-year-old loves them!
