My now 16-month-old, Iain, is a picky eater. He seems to be following in my footsteps... eh, I mean tastebuds. He likes chocolately sweet things. And fruit. And bread. And when he does NOT like something, it is painfully clear. He pouts. He spits food out. And he swats at the spoon and throws his arms around. SO, I was quite interested to see how he would take to some food from Happy Baby that we were recently able to sample.
I decided to give Iain the banana yogurt melts one day as a snack. I knew he would love them, since he LOVES bananas... and he loves yogurt melts!
Here is his reaction to the first bite (kind of a pleasantly surprised YUM, if you ask me!):
Sure enough.... he sampled a few and then ran back for more!
A few days later, I decided to just get it over with and try to feed him the Happy Tots toddler mix of green beans, pears and peas, not thinking it would go very well. I held the pouch for him, just in case he swatted it out of my hands in disgust...
But I was completely wrong. Iain took one taste -- straight out of the pouch -- and practically inhaled the entire thing!
He LOVED it! I don't think I have ever seen him enjoy something that much (that wasn't dessert, that is!). I think he was shocked when it was gone....
He waved around the empty pouch, with kind of a "that's all?" look!
Iain also loved the spinach, mango and pear mixture.... and it was fun to see him feed himself by squeezing the pouch and sucking it down flat! (How neat... and how convenient!)
Needless to say, I was MORE than thrilled about the Happy Baby foods, and I am certainly a new fan... and customer! And so is Iain! :) And I am excited that the food is all organic, with 100% natural ingredients! (Yes, Iain is now eating healthier than ANY of us!)
Now... the best part is: YOU may get to sample some Happy Baby food, too!
