My girls love snacks so a Milk & Cookie Happy Hour for my girls and their friends was just perfect for an afternoon get together. This kid-friendly happy hour was to celebrate Happy Family’s NEW Happy Tot Grow & Shine Organic Toddler Milk, a nutrient-rich milk developed specifically for children 12 to 24 months. October is National Cookie Month so there was no better time to celebrate!
Launched on Mother’s Day 2006, Happy Family is an organic brand that offers a line of nutritious foods for babies, toddlers and kids with a focus on what makes their bodies grow. They are constantly innovating and creating new and tasty products which is why the release of their new Organic Toddler Milk is so fitting for their product line.
You may be interested to learn that the Toddler Milk has the following benefits:
- Offers more DHA, ARA and choline than the leading toddler milk
- Provides essential nutrients that regular cow’s milk does not, such as DHA and choline
- DHA, ARA and choline to support brain and eye health
- Calcium, phosphorous and vitamin D to support bone growth
- Antioxidants, vitamins C & E, for immune system support
The Happy Tot Toddler Cookies were an extremely big hit with all the children there…even the older ones. Especially the chocolate pumpkin flavor which was the clear winner. These cookies are puppy-shaped, gluten-free and made with whole grains! There were definitely no leftovers!
A toddler’s brain triples in size from birth to age 2. During that first year a child’s brain can grow up to 1.7 grams a day. With that much growing it is definitely important that they get all the right vitamins and minerals so that it grows to its potential. That means eating all the right foods.
Happy Family is a company that believes that every baby deserves to be a happy baby. Since its launch, the company has underwritten more than 1 million meals through Project Peanut Butter, a nonprofit that helps to feed starving children in Africa. They also work with FEED in this fight against hunger and malnutrition all over the world by donating a portion of our profits to them. You can read more about how they give back on their website. We eat a lot from their product line even as my children are getting older. I always keep some stashed in the diaper bag and the car for when the girls need a quick and healthy snack. I have even been known to sneak a snack or two myself.
