I'm a chocolate-loving nutritionist, pre & postnatal coach, doula and let's face it- total birth nerd 🤓. I'm here to help you cut through mommy-marketing and pinterest perfection to confidently cultivate a pregnancy and postpartum experience you totally love.
My daughter is typically a really awesome and adventurous eater. But like most toddlers, she also goes through phases where she’d really prefer to just eat strawberries, thanks. And other weeks, she’ll only wants to eat chicken and nothing else. Leaves this NTP mama begging for variety in her diet… So, we still offer it all hoping she’ll be inspired to branch out during her picky streaks.
And I have to say that 90% of the time I trust in her little baby gut wisdom to eat the foods she needs, but sometimes it feels necessary to do a little more encouraging when simply offering isn’t enough.
Enter: Berry Gummy Snacks with wait for it… secret spinach. These gummy snacks have healthy protein from grassfed gelatin, fats from coconut milk, and lots of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals from spinach and mixed berries.
They are super simple to make and have been a palate pleaser for the whole house. They are also awesome to take on road trips or hiking as a quick snack.
Note: these will NOT have the same texture as gummy bears you buy at the store. It’s just not possible without buying ingredients not commonly found in pantries. Think of these gummy snacks as a firmer and more portable jell-o snack. Fair? Okay.
Opt for organic berries and spinach if you can, as these produce items are typically some of the worst offenders for pesticide use and residue. I also prefer to use unflavored grassfed gelatin from Vital Proteins or Great Lakes.
