Instead of Candy Fill Their Stockings with Something Nutritious - #Review

Candy is a staple when it comes to stocking stuffers but it is finally possible to feed your child something that is not only really good for them but absolutely delicious!  I was recently contacted by a company called Bitsy's Brainfood that makes some delicious and nutritious snacks that would make great stocking stuffers for children of any age!  These snacks contain Omega-3 and DHA which make them "smart snacks" and help brain development.  They are made with organic wheat flour and a mix of fruit and vegetables.  I found out long ago, when mixing fruits and vegetables together, it's hard to taste the vegetables because the fruit flavor overpowers the vegetable flavor.  So you're children won't even realize they're eating vegetables!
More Information on Bitsy's Brainfood
According to their website, "Bitsy's Brainfood was started by two new moms who shared a simple belief - that healthy bodies and healthy minds are connected, and that learning to eat smart should be fun."
"The fact is that certain foods are smarter than others.  So the idea was to create Bitsy's Brainfood, a line of smart snacks..bite-sized treats packed with the good stuff to help support developing bodies and brains, like vitamins and Omega-3, and packaged with content that's educational and oh-mega cool.  Plus, we've yet to meet a kid who doesn't love snacks or a parent who doesn't crave nutritious, on-the-go options."
"At Bitsy's, we believe that every moment is an opportunity for learning - even snack time.  That's why for us, being healthy means celebrating the foods we want our kids to eat (we're not hiding any carrots around here) and inspiring them to learn and grow wherever and whenever we can: through interactive packaging, super cool stickers, characters that spark little imaginations, and a website designed to keep kids engaged and mentally active until it's time to go back outside and play."
"Be Smart, Eat Smart"
Bitsy's Brainfood comes in four delicious flavors, two of which I've had the opportunity to try, Lemon Broccoli, Orange Chocolate Beet, Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin and Zucchini Gingerbread Carrot.  All of these treats are made with organic ingredients, made with real fruits and veggies with no preservatives, no trans fats and no artificial colors or flavors.  They are an excellent source of calcium, vitamins A, B12, D3 and Folic Acid as well as a great source of iron.  
My Review
I had the opportunity to try the Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin and Lemon Broccoli flavored cookies and I can honestly say I didn't taste the broccoli or sweet potato in either one of them.  They come in fun alphabet shapes and Ashton and I played a game with them where he would spell out words and for each word he spelled correctly he got to eat the cookies.  We had a blast playing and eating these cookies and they were gone by the end of the day.  Ashton has asked me ever since to pick up some more.  Our favorite was the Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin and I am very curious to see how the other two flavors compare to the ones we received.  
If you're a parent, you know how difficult it can be to find nutritious foods that are also tasty.  But these incredible cookies are both!  These will make wonderful stocking stuffers instead of unhealthy treats like candy and sugar filled cookies!  I highly recommend these treats for anyone looking to add more healthy alternative to sugary, unhealthy treats.  These are wonderful for children and adults!
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - You just can't beat nutritious AND delicious!
