When I was pregnant I spent hours upon hours scrolling Pinterest and making plans for how I was going to make homemade baby food and provide fresh food and gourmet level toddler options for BabyCakes at every meal. Once she was here, that became a littler harder to keep up with! While I don’t have the time to make dinosaur shaped sandwiches or mini green smoothies for every meal there are store bought solutions that are quality and fit into my life as a working mother. One of my favorite brands is Annie’s Homegrown. I first encountered them when I was watching YouTube videos from other moms and noticed that most of their children loved the Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies.
Annie’s uses natural and organic ingredients to make great-tasting products for the whole family, not just the kiddos. They are also a socially responsible company, sourcing ingredients in sustainable ways. I want to feed my family as best as I can and Annie’s makes it easier to give them organic food. Their mac and cheese is a go-to for dinner time, and I like to use their snacks when packing BabyCakes’ lunch.
A great choice for lunches during this back-to-school season is bento boxes. I love them because BabyCakes eats more when I provide her with a variety of items.
