Preparing to learn about everything from chewing to Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™

 

A special thank you to Gerber for allowing me the opportunity to attend their Dallas event. I had a great time learning about Gerber Lil Bits. All opinions shared are 100% my own.

I can’t hardly believe she is going to be 6 months old in just a couple of weeks. Teeth are just around the corner and as of lately she is enjoying a daily bowl of rice cereal with some Gerber baby food on the side. I finally dug out the old baby seat and have been using that as a high chair for the moment.  I’d kinda forgotten how much fun it can be to feed a baby.. Messes just don’t matter to them!

We’re not on to Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™Tracking Pixel yet – we’re still just getting used to things like apples and pears. Once she’s had a good introduction to a range of different flavors and no big allergic reactions, we’ll be graduating on to the next steps when she’s ready.

There’s more of a chunky texture, so baby will learn use those new little teeth they just grew! Chewing is a very important developmental milestone in babies and Gerber has created just the right size for baby’s palate. After testing over 30000 spoonfuls of Lil Bits™ recipes, Gerber has mastered the recipe for this age group to master the art of chewing.

Behold! Sweet potato, apple, carrots & cinnamon…

Mmm! Sounds like autumn in a jar! There’s also some other flavors too – 7 fruits and 3 veggies to be exact. With flavors like apple blueberry and orchard fruit medley i would be excited to explore flavor combinations!

 

One of the fun parts about blogging is getting invited to kid-friendly events. Last week I wrangled both my little monsters and took them to a local event featuring Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™. JP had so much fun helping me take care of his little sister and I got to take home a fun box of promotional goodies from Gerber ChewU. Enroll your little chewer for the chance to win great stuff as well! Learn more by visiting Gerber ChewU.

Back to school lunches with Motts - #BTSwithMotts #AD

I’m counting down about 3 weeks until the back-to-school routine comes back into play. Is it bad to say that I’m looking forward to it?? Over the next few days, I’ve been carefully preparing for the change in routine that comes with the new school year. Some of it is clothing, backpacks, lunch boxes & school supplies but most importantly I’ve been gathering items like Mott’s® Applesauce for packing a nutritious and delicious lunch.

A few times I’ve had JP eat the school cafeteria food when I’ve been short on time to make a lunch. It was convenient at first, but soon after JP began to express his dislike for the school’s food and told me he liked my home made lunches better. Since that happened, I’ve been making him healthy lunches with good things like Mott’s® Applesauce included.

Now that I have 2 kids and a crazy life, there’s never a dull moment around our house. That being said, I can use all the help I can get when it comes to taking care of my little monsters. Pre packaged food can be a god-send for making lunches easy to put together in the morning, which is one of the reasons why I enjoy lunch items like Mott’s® Applesauce.

I noticed that my local Dollar General had these on sale on the Back to School display, along with a bottle of Mott’s® apple juice on sale to boot, so I got some of each for my lunch food stash. From July 26th through August 23rd, Dollar General will have these on sale priced at $2 for the juice and $2.25 for the applesauce.

Now that we’re past the midpoint of summer break, I bet most moms across the country are counting the days until school resumes. Don’t get me wrong, I love being home with my kids – but having a bored 6 year old child in the lurch is never a good time.

I smell back-to-school in the air every time I visit the store and see all the displays that greet you when you walk in. Its always fun to get to pick from the colorful binders & folders to help you get organized for fall.

Lunches are no different and they are by far my favorite to make. Since JP was a toddler, I’ve always favored the bento lunches because the whimsical factor helps keep him interested. So while I’m stocking up on pens and pencils, I’ve also been stocking up on yummy treats I can include in his bento lunches.
