Can someone please come over here and explain to me how my baby girl is already 10 months old?! Like, I’m not kidding. Em’s crawling, has 2 teeth, she’s pulling up on things, has 7 words totally mastered, and is snacking like a total champ! And trust me, her snacks go everywhere with us. Girl is just like her mama in more ways than one. I definitely passed that hanger gene onto her, and it’s a strong one. 😂 Sorry, baby girl! 😘
I get asked questions about Emmy all the time like what kind of schedule we follow (spoiler alert: we don’t 🙈), where my favorite places are to shop, and one of the most requested has been what kinds of food and drinks we give her! I have a few posts like this coming up about all things Em, and I’ve teamed up with Mott’s to bring you this list of Emmy’s favorite snacks!
She’s still primarily breastfed (10 months strong! 🙌), and we like to watch the ingredients in the stuff we give her. Luckily, there are some awesome brands out there that make this super easy! I tried the whole making your own baby food thing, and let’s be real, it’s a HUGE commitment! If you’re looking for healthy, wholesome, and easy snacks that you can grab at Target for your little one, keep on reading!
MOTT’S® FOR TOTS ORGANIC JUICE
Watching Em try new flavors is pretty much the cutest thing ever. Girlfriend literally squealed the first time she tried the new Mott's for Tots Organic Juice in their Apple White Grape flavor, only found at Target! Any time she's super excited she gets into this mode where she can't hold in the emotion and she just squeals! 😍😂 Their Organic Apple Juice was the first juice Em had ever tried, and she’s loved it ever since! I give her juice a few times a week in her sippy cup loaded up with ice, and I love that Mott’s offers two awesome organic options.
This one’s at the top of the list for good reason! Em LOVES her puffs. We’ve tried a couple different brands, but the organic options are our fave! It might sound silly, but I try everything we give her to make sure it tastes good, and I could eat these as a snack myself! They dissolve easily in her mouth and have superfoods packed in them! Throw in her sippy cup full of Mott’s for Tots Organic Juice, and it's a total a win-win situation. 👌
PUREED FRUIT + VEGGIE POUCHES
Ok, talk about convenient! I take organic pouches everywhere we go! Em has loved almost every flavor we’ve given her (unless they’re orange … girl has a weird thing with pumpkin + carrots 😂), and they’re seriously the easiest things in the world to give her when we’re out and about. You don’t even need a spoon! I just put the pouch in her mouth, and squeeze! Em’s favorite flavors are Apples Blueberries + Oats, Apple Peaches + Oats, and Pear Spinach + Kale!
MASHED FROZEN FRUIT
This one can definitely get super messy, but Emmy has so much fun with it! Plus, it’s a great little snack when she’s teething and needs something cold on her gums. I picked up a few of these little mesh pouches, and load them up with frozen fruit!
I also have a crazy easy mom hack to share with you that’s perfect for summer! You can throw the frozen fruit with a splash of juice in your food processor or blender to make a baby friendly fruit smoothie! Emmy tried a strawberry banana one for the first time by the pool when we were in Turks, and she seriously couldn’t get enough of it! How awesome does Mott’s for Tots Organic Apple White Grape juice mixed with frozen raspberries sound!? Em’s current faves are frozen bananas, strawberries, and raspberries!
I hope this post was helpful to all of you mamas out there looking for snack and organic product ideas for your little ones! It’s so much fun to watch Emmy try new things and flavors. Do you have any favorite go-to snacks for your babe? Will you be picking up any of Em’s favorites on your next Target run? Let me know down in the comments!
