Congratulations Clarissa Neiding & Jovita Cantu

Nutritional drink for kids? There are so many in the market today that you can’t even count them. A quick search on Google for “kids nutritional drinks” returns 20 million results. Thats amazing. Seriously, it would drive anyone nuts to literally figure out how to pick the right drink for their kids.

I was happy to receive a sample pack from Gerber for review and do a giveaway on the blog. The packaging seemed tougher than regular juice boxes, but once its goes in kid’s hands anything is possible. Even though the drink is loaded with vitamins and omega-3 fat my kids found it hard to gulp as it was low in sugar. Kids care more about sweet than nutrition and I don’t blame them. If you are looking to replace milk with nutritional alternative for your kids then smart sips may be the right choice, however if your kids are used to sweet drink like hot chocolate  then smart sips may be a difficult choice.

Two lucky readers can win Gerber Smart Sips contest on Mommy Niri blog by entering the contest. The winner gets - One pack of Smart Sips and a Gerber Graduate backpack.

    A couple healthy choices we have made for out toddler is to give him organic unsweetened apple sauce (fresh fruit he can’t quite chew properly yet) as a snack choice or low fat cheese.

    Once I figured out my oldest son was averse to certain textures of foods, I found healthy options in his prefered texture. :)
    He actually likes broccoli and carrots and spinach. :)

    I always enjoy drinks like this that are healthy in disguise. Usually my daughter can only have water, milk or one small glass of juice a day so if we win it would be a real treat for her!

    I really like the idea of giving healthy drinks to kids. My kids love the Pediasure drinks but we have never tried the gerber one for my toddler. I think if I tried it, she probably would love them

    I feed my daughter homemade baby food, she has not had juice yet (7months) nor will she for a very long time. We are all pretty healthy eaters and I want her to find healthy eating “natural” you know?

    I think the most important thing to do when getting your kids to eat healthfully is to eat healthfully yourself.

    Rhonda Clemens says:

    I believe in having a baby on formula until a year old, adding cereal whenever the baby is wanting the bottle more, adding baby food at 7-8 months, and every 2 weeks introduce a new baby food and by the time they are 1 year old, introduce some table foods every so often, but keep on the baby food for awhile and gradually introduce some finger foods (NO grapes or hotdogs–go choking hazzaed foods).
