Happy Family Organic Superfoods [Review + Giveaway]

I don't know about other moms, but for my kids it's nearly impossible to get them to snack on something in the healthy category. Obviously I'm not feeding my kids total crap, but I know there are better options than Goldfish, Cheez-Its, and fruit gummies. Enter Happy Family Organic Superfoods. An organic family food brand packed with premium ingredients and health benefits.

I was lucky enough to be contacted by Happy Family to do a review and giveaway of their products. One of their Happy Mamas came by my house to deliver coupons to get myself some free products. Happy Mamas are community representatives who are available to answer your questions and educate through samples and classes. There are currently some availabilities for military moms and dads to become representatives at their installations.

When it came time for us to travel to New York, I knew that some of the Happy Tot fruit and veggie pouches would be perfect! The girls love snack pouches, and they're convenient to just toss in a diaper bag with no refrigeration required.  They don't contain any artificial flavors or preservatives, which in my book, makes them even more kid friendly. Each girl got a Happy Tot pouch. Apple and butternut squash for Veronica and strawberry, kiwi, beet, pear for Adri. V wasn't a fan of the squash, so we switched pouches, and everyone was happy. In defense of the squash, I tried it and it wasn't bad at all. She's just picky. Each pouch has a significant amount of Vitamin C, which I see as a plus to avoid picking up yucky germs when out and about.

The girls were both HUGE fans of the Happy Munchies and Happy Yogi snacks. I will definitely be purchasing these again. I got them Munchie puffs, since they've always loved puffs. These puffs were a lot like Cheeto Puffs in taste and texture, minus the crazy furniture-staining orange stuff. Hub and I both tried them and we were fans. The great thing about the puffs is that they're made with whole grain corn, and organic cheese with carrot, and they contain significantly less sodium than other toddler cheese snacks. These Munchie puffs also contain choline, which helps with healthy brain development.

Happy Yogis are yogurt melts which are made with organic fruit and yogurt. They melt easily in your mouth, which makes them baby friendly also. Thankfully, Adri didn't drool them out all over the place like she has in the past. I think it's safe to say that she loved these too.

Happy Family products aren't just for kids either! I was able to try an adult "Treat", and it was quite the treat! The Caramel Apple Treat packaging says that it's "a guilt-free dessert", and it is just that. You get a half cup of fruit per 100 calorie pouch. Totally a win-win! What adult doesn't love eating from a squeeze pouch anyway?!

    Happy Family brand products are available at DECA Commissaries, Whole Foods Market, Super Target, and other major grocers. You can use the store locator to find the retailer closest to you with Happy Family products.

    Even if you don't win the giveaway, I would suggest purchasing one or two products to try. They aren't expensive at all, and I couldn't think of anything better snack for a child than one that is both mouthwatering and nutritious. Happy Family makes products for babies and children of all ages.

    And now for the giveaway! The contest will run for a week and end at midnight on April 10. Contest is open to US only. Happy Family will be sending the winner coupons for free products of the following items:
