I have a dirty little secret to share with you. Here goes. I am no great cook. In the past, I have had some friends ask me to share my meal plans here or to share lunch or dinner ideas with y’all. But trust me when I tell you that you do not want to read those because they’re completely unoriginal and boring.
BUT! I do have one thing going for me. And that is the fact that I actually DO value healthy and nutritious food for my family- I just want it to be quick, easy, and cheap for me to do it. So I got a little help from Gerber Lil’ Bits for today’s two food items.
Breakfast is a favorite in our house. We have “brinner” at least once a week and obviously the girls eat a big breakfast every single day. It is really easy to fill up on sugar and bread with breakfast food, so I like to try and find ways to sneak in extra fruits and veggies anywhere that I can.
One way that I do this is by putting puree’s in the girls food so that it isn’t even detected! Luckily, neither of my girls are picky eaters, so I really don’t HAVE to hide healthy foods so that they’ll eat them, but hey, why risk it?
Gerber Lil’ Bits ingredients are carefully selected to meet the high quality standards of GERBER®. With no added starch, artificial colors or flavors Lil’ Bits is the perfect option for our family!
Each Gerber Lil’ Bits recipe is made with perfectly sized soft pieces of fruits or veggies to help your baby learn and master chewing- but bonus! Abigail loved and ate all of this food too. So, almost six year old kids can get in on this as well!
The first recipe I mixed up was adding this sweet potato, apple, and carrot food into some whole grain oatmeal with whole milk.
I sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon on top and both girls completely gobbled it up!
Next, I added some pear apple berry to whole fat honey vanilla greek yogurt.
And, as you can probably guess, it was also a HUGE hit!
Gerber Lil’ Bits are a nutritious option to assist in introducing your baby to new tastes, textures, and combinations and are also a GREAT way to add an extra boost of nutrition, flavor, and fun to every day favorites!
