Okay moms, your kids are adorable. But there’s one thing at mealtime you just can’t stand. And you all know the feeling. It’s when they stick up that cute little nose of theirs at the beautiful healthy food you’ve prepared and say, “I don’t want it.” As a mom of such adorable children, I decided to pass along a little wisdom I learned in the last few months. Specifically, I want to share with you 5 kosher products that recently appeared on the shelves of my local supermarket. They’re healthy, wholesome, and yummy. And guess what? My kids tried them and actually loved them!
So here they are….check out these items and please comment. We could all use a little mommy wisdom!
Aurora Natural Granola Vanilla Crunch - OU-D
This lightly sweetened granola came in a number of other flavors including Cranberry Vanilla and Brown Sugar. The kids loved finding the biggest chunks. It’s been great as a snack and as a yogurt topper. Quite addictive actually for the adults too! And here’s the yogurt they eat the Granola Vanilla Crunch with…
Stonyfield Farms Organic Yogurt – 0% Fat – OU-D
Despite some initial skepticism, my kids absolutely loved the Vanilla and Strawberry flavors. The best thing is that they’re only 70 calories and have no artificial sweeteners. Incidentally, my kids have been enjoying their YoBaby line of drinkable yogurts for some years now. This product is definitely a hit.
Barilla Piccolini Mini Pipe with Carrots and Squash – OU
This items is so new, it doesn’t even appear on Barilla’s website yet! This orange-colored pasta is chock full of Thiamin and Folate and a whole host of great nutrients. Best thing for moms: it cooks in just 6 minutes.
Champion Raisels (The Fruity Flavored Raisins) Sour Peach Pucker – OU
We couldn’t find a website for this product, but we found this great video from ABC introducing it last year. This fruity snack even passed muster with the one who doesn’t like raisins, so I consider that a mom victory. Hey, it might be candy on the outside, but it’s definitely a raisin on the inside!
Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit Apple Cinnamon – OU
This item is great when a kid (or mom!) needs a fast meal, especially breakfast. The little cup microwaves in 45 seconds and there’s no need to add water or anything. Truly genius. And who can resist a nice hot oatmeal?
And there you have it. My new favorite products!
