"Mama Loves": Happy Tot Pouches

Today I am participating in the "Mama Loves" linky party with one of my favorite blogs
"Pontifications of a Twin Mama"

Everyone knows how tough it can be to run errands of any kind with toddlers.  Those of us with twins or multiple young children know it is doubly hard even if our kiddo's are well behaved.

On a quick trip to Target a few weeks ago, my Ben and Emma were in peak form.  Yelling, pulling things off shelves, pulling each others hair.  You get the picture!

Oh yeah, can I share one of my biggest pet peeves?
How come the Mama with a 10 year old who really should be walking and behaving himself always find the carts with the seats and seat belts so their, ummm, "hefty" kid can sit and eat popcorn while this Mama with crazy 22 month old Twinkies never can and ends up having to put them in the back where they threaten to jump ship the whole time?????

Hopefully the huge run on sentence will convey 
how much this really irks me!

Anyway, back to Mama loves.
On this particular diaper and wipes run, Ben and Emma had brought me to the brink of my first ever panic attack when I saw them- wonderful little pouches of goodness!
These things brought me 15 minutes of sitting, quiet toddlers and from then on I was hooked!

To top it all off, it isn't a sugary, fatty, unhealthy snack so I feel good about giving it to my little ones.

Here is what the company says:

The perfect baby meal or toddler snack for moms on the run.

 I love that there are so many flavors to choose from and the fact that they are fruit and veggie mixes.
This Mama loves that she has found a healthy snack that her kiddo's love to eat. 
The 15 quiet minutes isn't too shabby either!!


  1. So sorry that I'm just now getting to this! Thank you so much for sharing your love! You linked up exactly the right way!

    This cracked me up, Wendy! Not because I thought the brink of your first ever panic attack was funny. We had an experience like this with the double carts just the other day. At the grocery store, there was only one double cart left. THey have steering wheels on them--one for each--they're prefect!

    This woman with her 6(???) year old daughter (definitely old enough to walk through the store), quickly raced to the cart leaving Brad and I standing there each holding one of our girls. She refused to even make eye contact! So--we each had a single cart, which was fine, but grrrr! I almost said something to her!

    Anyway---love these little pouch things. I need to get some for our girls! They would love all the yummy flavors, and the "being able to do it themselves" :)

  2. I have never heard of this but I think I now know what I am going to have for lunch tomorrow!

  3. You should! I bet you would loooove them, dear brother! I advise you try the liver, onion, beet, and sauerkraut flavor! Yummy!

  4. Snacks when shopping are always a must and these sound so convenient. I will definitely try them out with my twi 19 months olds. Thanks for the tip.
