Today’s post is sponsored by Gerber, but my love for their snack options are all my own!
If you are anything like me, you are a busy mom. I am sure this applies to the majority of the moms out there, so this post is going to be really interesting to most. I don’t know about you but I have always been curious as to what people have in their purses and/or diaper bags. My daughter is at the age where she is wearing real underwear now so I don’t feel the need to carry around a diaper bag anymore, BUT I am still keeping a few essentials stashed in my handbag when we leave the house for those just in case moments. It really isn’t a lot, but the few little things are extremely important for us.
The very first thing that I have to mention is hair ties or hair clips. My daughter is 3 and somehow has managed to grow hair that is all the way down to her tush. It is CONSTANTLY in her face and it drives me insane. Food gets in it, drinks get in it, the wind whips it around and gets it tangled. If I don’t have a hair tie or hair clip in my handbag then all hope on keeping her hair clean and untangled is lost.
Second, I keep a little toy or knick knack of hers in my bag. You all know it happens. Your toddler/little one gets cranky or starts pointing out EVERYTHING that she wants while you are grocery shopping and sometimes you are just desperate for a little distraction. In this case I pulled out a bracelet from my bag but sometimes it is a little stuffed ball that looks like a cat, her favorite Disney princess, or whatever. The object isn’t important. What is important is that she likes it and it will change her focus.
The third and final thing I always have is a bag of snacks. If the toy doesn’t work food always does for my daughter. She is a very happy snacker. If she could snack on something all day long she would. She actually LOVES these Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM. They look like they would be in the same category as junk food BUT these actually are made of great ingredients!
It is actually the first bean-based snack in the baby aisle, Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM is made from the goodness of navy beans to deliver 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value), 1 gram of fiber, and 10% Daily Value of Vitamin E per serving. A delicious and nutritious treat, your little ones will love it for its taste and you’ll love it for its nutrition. Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM Snack is baked, not made with genetically engineered (GM) ingredients, and is naturally flavored! Even more, I love that I can pick them up at my local Target when I am there for my million and one reasons. ha
I love these snacks so much that I am going to share with you a great iBotta offer that is live for the Lil’ Beanies snacks!
