By no means am I an "all natural" mom, I mean my hair hasn't been it's natural color since I was 13. And, yes, my kids eat fast food sometimes. But when I first started feeding pureed baby food to my oldest daughter, every vegetable and fruit that I bought was organic and I took a lot of pride in the food that I made for her. It has gotten harder to feed "healthy" food to my little ones and their expanding taste buds. So, I am very excited to be going to the Natural Products Expo West this year to try and find some great products for the kids and myself. Let me share with you some of the company's and brands I am looking forward to checking out. And.... if you keep reading you will also find a giveaway from my favorite all natural Green Tea Mints, Sencha Naturals.
A healthy, Gluten Free, Vegan, Kosher cookie that come in soft and chewy or crispy varieties with flavors like Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Cherry and Fudge, Snickerdoodle and Lemon Wafer. These sound delicious!
The name totally caught my eye, well because I am a "white girl." Technically, I am a light skinned Mexican, but whatever. Clever name! White Girl Salsa is a Gluten Free five tomatillo-based green salsa. Sounds bold!
We love Yogurt in this house, from the time the my girls were 9 months old, they were eating yogurt and even now, it is one of their favorite snacks. I try to always keep yogurt in the fridge. All of Wallaby Organic yogurts products are made in California and I am all for supporting local family farms.
Getting my girls to eat fruit isn't ever a problem, but vegetables can sometimes be a battle.
Veggie-Go's are the original fruit AND veggie strip. Similar to a traditional fruit leather or fruit strip but made from whole fruits and whole veggies! Each strip has 1/2 serving of fruit and 1/2 serving of veggies.
You may notice the trend that I am trying to get my kids to eat their veggies! Veggie Fries blends potatoes with vegetables and beans to provide a healthier alternative to a "french fry." With flavors like Carrot, Broccoli, and Chickpea, I am tempted to try them.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE pupusas. Living in Los Angeles, I do have some Pupuseria's around me, but I've never heard of buying them in a market or store. I am all for that! A healthy Gluten Free pupusa with flavors like Green chile and Cheese, Spinach and Cheese, Pinto bean and Cheese. I am drooling over here!
Love the name! Popcorn is a great healthy snack and this one is a little different. Tiny kernels with intense flavors, um yes!
These are just a few of the brands I am excited about. Now let me get to the giveaway. The lovely people over at Sencha Naturals have allowed me to host a giveaway for you!
