On-The-Go Holiday Snacks {Christmas crunch time}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Happy Family Products for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


There are so many firsts in our lifetimes and as a parent it is such a blessing to watch our kids achieve, experience and enjoy them. Among those firsts are the first holidays, which are always so fun and so fulfilling. Watching your baby’s eyes light up at the sight of sparkling lights and ornaments is magical… my gosh the second Christmas might even be better as the little toddler stares at the presents in wonder thinking “how do I open this thing?!”

My son Gabriel was born a month after Christmas 2 years ago, so he was very much with a part of our 2012 holiday season. In fact, I had this gorgeous ornament made to represent his “first” Christmas even though I had not seen his beautiful face yet.

Last Christmas was my son’s first Christmas and he was hysterical. On the brink of turning 1, he was all up in those presents, diving headfirst (literally) into piles of wrapping paper, ribbons and bows his big sister was creating. Overwhelming, thrilling… he was wide-eyed and all smiles.

As we wind down the year with only a week left until Christmas, life is busy. Like you, I have been rushing around town to catch all the holiday events from concerts to parades to Santa sightings — not to mention all of the holiday gift shopping and holiday baking — it’s a lot! My husband and I both work for ourselves and so our schedules can get a bit nuts, varying every day. Who has the baby today? Who knows.

Gabriel is 22 months and is a great meal eater at home, but on-the-go I still need those handy toddler snacks. Since I started buying easy finger snacks, I’ve been buying Happy Family products. They are just the best! He loves them all, his most favorite being the Happy Yogis yogurt and fruit snacks. He can inhale a whole bag in no time! I’m pleased about that because he is getting great probiotics and fruit.

Make no mistake though, he can’t pass up the other snacks like the Organic Puffs and the Baked Organic Cheese and Grain Snacks, today it’s broccoli, kale and cheddar flavor… crazy yum and super nutritious!

I’ve tried all brands of puffs but Happy Baby are my favorite. They are a bit bigger than others and they are crunchier. This puffed grain snack featuring greens contains choline for eye & brain health, organic whole grains and 100% fruit juice to sweeten. My baby boy loves these puffs and I always keep a canister in my car.

I mean, look how excited he is… this face! Sorry Gabe, I had to post it.

The Happy Munchies are like those processed cheesy puffs from your childhood except healthy. They are packed with superfoods, made with whole grain corn and have that great crunch we all love, even toddlers!

These are my son’s favorite on-the-go and in the car snacks, but there are so many more products in the Happy Family collection. They seem to be expanding ALL the time! The rice cakes are amaze and so are the new organic teething wafers — love the wafers, especially since Gabriel is in yet another terrible teething time. Poor guy. Visit the Happy Family website to learn about organic baby and toddler food

Annnd of course, there are the pouches of purees in a wide variety of fruits, veggies, meaty meals, grains and greek yogurt blends… and unrivaled collection. I always have a few of these stashed in my car and diaperbag. Enjoy a $1 off coupon for Happy Family baby food pouches
