A few weeks back I blogged about some new gluten-free products that I had spotted at Whole Foods. These products were targeted towards younger children – toddler age. Peas of Mind makes nutritious foods that appeal to youngsters. Not all of their products are gluten-free, but a good number of them are. I picked up a few different Peas of Mind products the last time I was in Whole Foods.
Black Bean & Polenta Puffets
Veggie Wedgies – Broccoli Fries
Veggie Wedgies – Apple Fries
I was unsure if I could get my kids to try them, as they are older and picky as can be, but I knew that I would be able to have the 2 little ones that I watch try these, in addition to myself. Cole, 9 months old, loved the black bean puffet. I figured I would make it and he would eat half and I would save the remaining half for the next day. Well, there was nothing to save! He loved it! I really don’t think I was getting it in his mouth fast enough. The following day I served him and my God daughter the Veggie Wedgies and while Emma (3.5) was slow to warm up to them, Cole dug right in. I sampled all of the products and they tasted good and not overly processed. The nutrition stats are decent and this is a wonderful way to get vegetables into your children without too much of a fight. Like the website says “a veggie sneak attack”!
***A couple of these products were provided to me free of charge to sample and I purchased one, too. The opinion stated in this blog are mine and have not been influenced by anyone or anything.
