At almost eighteen months old, our youngest son Jacob is officially entering toddlerhood! As he matures and develops, we are learning a lot of new things about him. Despite his cognitive and emotional growth, we recently learned that he is a tiny little guy. Barely making the tenth percentile for the weight charts, I am stunned that my husband and I made such a small boy. In an effort to help him pack on some pounds and receive the essential nutrients he needs to grow, I am on an endless mission to find food and drinks that promote health and development in toddlers.
Aware that toddlers are not the most adventurous eaters, Similac has developed a line of products that appeal to little ones and parents alike. Easily found at your local Walmart store, Go & Grow by Similac Pouches are an easy and brilliant solution to squeeze healthy and nutritious ingredients into even the pickiest children. Appealing to all taste buds, these yummy snacks are available in eight different flavors and separated into two stages, six months and up and twelve months and up. Certified USDA organic, these convenient pouches contain three to four servings of fruits and vegetables, in addition to Similac’s unique OptiGro, a brain and eye nourishing blend of DHA, Lutein and vitamin E.
In addition to their innovative twist on healthy food, Similac also provides young children with nourishing drink options. Also found at Walmart, the Go & Grow by Similac Toddler Drink contains over twenty five vitamins and minerals in each eight ounce serving. Available in unflavored, non GMO and vanilla options, this powder combines with water to serve toddlers ages twelve to twenty four months with at least 30% of their daily value of iron, calcium and vitamins C and E.
