Mealtime with a toddler can definitely be an adventure! They are absolutely crazy sometimes. I know in our house, dinner is usually followed immediately by bath time. We just strip him down and head for the tub.
Lucky for us, Owen is a good eater as far as what he eats. Owen gladly eats meat, cheese, fruits, and veggies for us. I guess you figured out that he's not a neat eater though. Food ends up everywhere and that's not just from Owen. Charlie is 5 and he tends to make just as much of a mess.
As a mom though, it's still natural to wonder if our little ones are getting the nutrients they need. Kids are on-the-go all the time and they're not always in the mood to settle down and eat a meal.
Specially designed for toddlers 12 – 24 months, Stage 3 Gerber Good Start Grow is a nutritious toddler drink with probiotics to support digestive health. It helps nourish toddler tummies so they can focus on what makes them and you happy: their growing independence!
Since we're just getting started with the heat of summer, I decided to make a yummy ice pop using our new toddler drink.
- 6 oz of water
- 3 scoops of Stage 3 Gerber Good Start Grow
- 2 cups plain yogurt, low fat
- about 12 strawberries
- Mix 3 scoops of Stage 3 Gerber Good Start Grow into 6 oz of water.
- In a blender, combine 6 strawberries, mixed Gerber Toddler Drink, and yogurt.
- Slice the remaining strawberries and distribute among ice pop molds.
- Pour strawberry yogurt mixture into the molds.
- Put wooden sticks in or whatever your molds call for.
- Freeze 4 hours or until firm.
The boys have really been enjoying these special Strawberries and Cream Ice Pops that I made for them. And of course, I love knowing that there are important nutrients that are essential for them inside this yummy treat including probiotics to help support digestive health and DHA and iron to help support brain development.
