Don't Forget the Danimals!

In Partnership with Danimals®

We talked to Brianne from IL and here’s what she had to say:

Q
What did your kiddo think of Danimals® Organic Smoothies?

A
I chose the Strawberry Dannon Danimals to try. You can't go wrong with strawberry! My kids really enjoyed it. It's not a typical treat they get so the yogurt in a drink was very exciting for them. They thought the strawberry was yummy!
Q
As a parent, what gives you confidence in Danimals®?

A
I love knowing I gave my children something with quality to snack on. It feels good they have something healthy that they can enjoy.
Q
How do you encourage your littles to eat well?

A
Thankfully I have been blessed with non-picky eaters and they love fruits and vegetables! I always just made them try a bite of whatever is in front of them. From the start, I told them they only have to try it and if they don't like it then that's fine. It wasn't always an easy task but now they eat all sorts of food! They even love asparagus. I think encouraging them to try the food and thanking them for trying it and asking what they think of the foods helps them want to eat more and also helps teach them to communicate.
Q
Any tips on how to keep snack time fun?

A
For lunch I offer them a "dip" with their meals, it makes the flavor a little better, gives them a task, and sometimes if the food is too hot it helps cool it down. I always offer a little dessert after lunch and dinner, usually,​ it's a small piece of chocolate. We also use the phrase "happy plate" which means a clean plate. Happy plates get a dessert. Snacks are never something we struggle to get the kids to eat. I try to switch up the options often and make sure it's not something we always have, it needs to be special.
Dannon Danimals is the best go-to snack!
