Gerber Lil’ Beanies is Getting them to Eat

June 21, 2016 By · No Comments

With five kids I tend to either stay away from products of had bad experiences with throughout raising children or I lean towards completely trusting brands and being loyal to them. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that since my oldest (now 19) was born I’ve trusted Gerber products that goes from baby food, snacks, juices, etc. I’ve watched the company expand the items it produces and have normally had a child in that age group when they launch something new. Nicoli has always loved the Gerber snacks, so when they came out with the Gerber “Lil Beanies” I had to try them.

Lil’ Beanies are geared towards toddlers and currently come in two flavors: Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) is a nutritious snack that has 2 grams of protein (9% Daily Value) and 1 gram of fiber per serving. Lil’ Beanies(TM) is the perfect snack to delight both you and your toddler. They are the very first snack made with beans in the Kroger baby food aisle. I love our Kroger because it has everything easy to find, baby food is on one side of the aisle and diapers, wipes and butt cream are on the other. Gerber Lil’ Beanies are found on the top shelf and are just below $2. I won’t lie, we have movie night and eat chips, I hate giving Nicoli chips so these will now be HIS when it comes to movie night. Course I think he’ll eat them any other time, which is funny since he is such a picky eater. This is totally a Gerber Win Win. [Read more…]

Greenwood is one of the best places I have lived, I love the fact it is so green and always doing something in the community for families. When we first moved out here we were introduced to the Greenwood Concert in the Parks and the Concerts at the Mall. I moved away for two years and missed the concerts in the park and couldn’t wait for my first summer back.

Patriotic Star Craft for Kids

Every year since the kids were born I have taken them to a Cemetery on Memorial’s Day and Veteran’s Day to pay our respect to those that have passed on. Being a military child and wife this means a lot to me, it gives me time to reflect but I’m also able to explain to my children what they did and how to support them. We normally show up with little flags or carnations to drop on a few graves, we say thank you and leave. The entire time the kids talk quietly among themselves about how long the person lived and which war they may have been in and even memories they might have from when they were a military child. Before you ask, no we don’t know anyone buried in any of the cemeteries we have visited. There dad however has been to Iraq twice and knew plenty, he can no longer go in with us because of his own experiences but we continue to go in and honor our own tradition. Since Nicoli is so little and still grasping what it is we are doing or why, I wanted to get him more involved by making small crafts that he can show his support that way. What crafts do you or your kids make? The kids and I will be at the cemetery on Monday morning to give thanks. What do you do on Memorial day?
