Happy Baby Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

He comes by it honestly. My son is picky. I've told you before that he loves things that start with "C"...cookies, crackers, chicken, cheese, corn, chips, carrots...with the occasional spaghetti thrown in there. He wasn't always like this though. I used to feed him really good food, but it started getting harder when the baby came. Now that the baby is starting solids (already? and teething? where did time go?) I want to make sure that he gets a good nutritional start to foods.

I was thrilled when Helen at Happy Baby Foods agreed to let me review their products! HAPPYBABY is committed to making baby food as healthy and delicious as homemade with the essential nutrients needed for optimal growth and development. I love that they have a "no junk" promise. Wish I could install that promise in our house!


We tried the Apple and Greens Organic Happy Puffs and we all really thought they were good. (Yep, mom and dad tried too!) Ryan insisted on having them with his sandwiches the past week instead of chips! Maybe a breakthrough? He liked the greens much better than the apple, but considering he has eaten almost the whole canister, I think he's happy with them. Plus, I think I can reuse the canister in our craft area!




For the baby, we tried the Happy Bellies Organic Brown Rice and Organic Oatmeal cereals. I kid you not, he couldn't get enough! I couldn't load the spoon fast enough for him! He was grabbing my hand and pulling the spoon to himself! I think he's a fan! I'm a fan because they incorporate DHA and probiotics. He's only ever had formula so I worry about him getting those nutrients for his development and health.


Helen also sent me coupons for YoBaby Organic Yogurt. My older son is obsessed with yogurt. He loves it. He's been eating a tub of it every day for breakfast for a while now. But I hate that they're all full of sugar and artificial colors and junk. I'm pleasantly pleased (huh?) that he likes this yogurt. We did learn that it needs to be stirred before you eat it! He particularly likes the strawberry banana! I think this is going to replace what he's been eating.

Something that I think is amazing about the Happy Baby Foods company is they made themselves a promise when they started the company that in addition to making wholesome food for our families, they would try to impact the world:

"With every package you purchase, we partner with Project Peanut Butter to help them in their mission to feed hungry children, as well as create sustainable local production of the very foods treating these children."

How cool is that?  You can do good things for your family, and help someone in another part of the world at the same time. Good on you Happy Baby Foods!
