Pros: 100% organic ingredients, includes fruits, veggies and probiotics
In pursuit of a healthy, organic snack option for my son I found these Happy Creamies Veggie and Fruit Snacks. The thing that made me pick up the bag in the first place was the text that reads "50% veggies," as my son is very picky about his vegetables. The cost was decent, so I decided to give them a try.
Open opening the bag, I was happy to see that these are a little more solid than puffs. My son likes a more solid snack than puffs. However; I also noticed the strong smell. A smell that was so strong, in fact, that I was scared to try them myself before handing them over to him. He loves them, though! The first time I gave them to him he kept asking for more and ended up eating about 1/4 of the bag.
I like that these are shaped like little disks and provide more of a challenge to pick up than puffs or cereal. This allows my son to hone his fine motor skills while snacking on a healthy, organic food source. Any time I know I am going to be out for a while and might need something to distract him, I throw a bag in my purse. The bags are compact, lightweight and include a zippered closure to keep them from spilling. The only thing preventing me from giving these a full 5 stars is the awful smell and the fact that they make my son's breath stink SO bad.
