The day our toddler asked for our orange triangle chips (um, hello, Doritos), we knew it was time to clean up our act. Below, four healthy munchies you won’t mind sharing with your tots.
What: All-fruit squeezy pouches with apples as the base of blends with bananas, strawberries, and more.
How It Tastes: Think baby food meets smoothie meets astronaut fare. Our kiddos gulped them down warm or cold. We preferred them from the fridge.
Where: Online at diapers.com, $5 for a four-pack.
TastyBaby Fruit Snacks
What: Organic fruit gummies made without offenders like high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, or preservatives. Special varieties include Superfruit (with açai and superfruit powder) and Sport (with electrolytes for hydration).
How It Tastes: In a word, tasty. We’re not sure who loved them more — Dad or the kids.
Where: Online at tastybaby.com, a case of 30 pouches for $29.
Peas of Mind Veggie Wedgies
What: Baked fries made from real veggies and fruit (broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, and apples). No added sugars or artificial flavors, plus they’re low in sodium.
How It Tastes: Think the crispy top of twice-baked potatoes without the buttery, cheesy overlay. The dinner table favorite was by far the broccoli, but the apple made a solid showing.
Where: Online at amazon.com, sixteen servings for $50.
Health Is Wealth Pizza Munchees
What: It’s like frozen pizza rolls went to the fat farm and came back healthy. Made with soy cheese, whole wheat flour, and no cholesterol or saturated fats.
How It Tastes: Just the way we remember but better because we know they’re good for us. The kids didn’t miss a thing — the soy cheese is just as gooey.
Where: Available at Whole Foods nationwide, $3.50 a box.
