Happy Baby

I can’t recall exactly how I stumbled upon the Happy Baby brand. I do know that it was right around the time that my son was about to begin eating rice cereal. I was so impressed that the Happy Baby line was organic and also included probiotic support and DHA. DHA is beneficial for proper brain and eye development. According to Dr. Sears, Probiotics are “good bowel bugs” or bacteria that is formulated to strengthen the immune system. “The gastrointestinal tract is the body’s largest immune organ. The better you feed baby’s GI tract, the better you feed baby’s immune system”. Probiotics can also help protect against the development of allergies. My first thought was that with breastfeeding and a cereal containing probiotics, my son was going to have all the immunity support possible! What could be any better? Since then, my son and I have been hooked!

The Happy Baby line includes; Happy Bellies organic baby cereal, Happy Baby frozen organic purees, Happy Baby organic puffs, and Happy Bites organic frozen meals for toddlers. So far my son loves it all (we haven’t tried the bites yet). The baby cereal is a little pricier than other organic brands out there but the added probiotics and DHA were worth it to me. Plus, in all my coupon searching I am almost always lucky enough to find a $1 off coupon, which brings the price down to about $3 for a 7-ounce can. On top of that, the cans of cereal often times have coupons hiding under their lids. One time I hit the jackpot when all the cereal cans I bought had a coupon for buy one get one free on the boxes of purees!

The fresh frozen purees come in yummy flavors such as smarter squash, purer pears, great greens, yes peas, and many others. “Feeding your baby fresh whole foods will program the taste buds to enjoy natural foods”. Happy Baby purees are not processed and do not contain additives or preservatives. I try to make the majority of my own purees but the Happy Baby purees are excellent to have on hand in a pinch or when I can’t find a specific organic fruit or veggie at the store. The purees come in stages that seem to correlate with when it is advised to introduce certain foods. My only request would be for the purees to get chunkier as the stages increase.

My son can’t get enough of the organic puffs. They come in three flavors: banana, apple, and greens. They have half the sugar of other leading brands of similar puffs and are fortified with vitamins and minerals. These are the only actual puffs that I could find that are organic. To top it off they are yummy (I have even caught my husband popping handfuls in his mouth)!
