Eats for Little Bellies – and You, Too

By Carolyn Richardson

  • Too Spicy (You May Lie to Your Kids About These)

    Koala’s March cream-filled bite-size cookies (99 cents for 19 cookies, feature koalas in all manner of cute. Organic, they’re not. Low-calorie? Nope. But they support the conservation group Australian Koala Foundation.

  • A Quick Dinner Fix for Tots

    Yummy Spoonfuls’ Tots line ($2.99 per three-bite pack, offers tot-size patties that, when paired with a side of veggies or grains, make a complete meal with nine to 17 grams of protein. We loved the Turkey Spinach bites and the Chicken Sweet Potato bites, and there are veggie quinoa-based bites as well.

  • Serve Up a Rainbow

    Feed your baby or toddler a rainbow of nutrients with Plum Organics Eat Your Colors line ($1.79 per 3.5-ounce pouch, The squeezable pouches in six vibrant hues contain combos such as beet, apple and red bell pepper or pea, kiwi, pear and avocado.

  • Gluten-Free Breakfast Staples

    Founded by mom friends who name each product after someone they love (like Francie’s Cinnamon Sugar Muffin Mix), Among Friends Baking Mixes are whole-grain, gluten-free and cook up to taste like food, not paper. We can’t get enough of Papa Tom’s Perfect Pancake and Waffle Mix ($4.99,

  • Treats That Are Clean and Sweet

    Otis Spunkmeyer’s new Iced Lemon Mini Loaf Cakes and Chocolate Chunk Cookies ($3.99, contain “no funky stuff” (artificial flavors, colors or high fructose corn syrup). Individual wrapping makes them a portion-controlled treat.

What are you feeding your family? It’s a question we all have to answer, and these new food options available in stores and online will make that a little easier.
