If you’ve been a reader for a while you know that my kids (3 year old twins and a 20 month old) are picky eaters. I have tried all sorts of things to get them to eat with varying degrees of success. I know that many of you are dealing with picky eaters too and are looking for ways to feed them food that is healthy and tasty. Well, look no further! I was sent some Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods to review and I thought I would put them to a real test. Would my picky girls like them?
My Erin Baker’s Taste Test
Little C loved the Breakfast Cookie Mini – Oatmeal Raisin flavor. She summed up her experience the way only a 20 month old could. “Yummy!” she called out after tasting it.
I agree, though I will elaborate. This tasted just like a big soft cookie you would get at the mall. But unlike those cookies, it is all natural, has no trans fats and is made with whole grains. I usually have breakfast around 6:30 am and start to feel hungry at 10am. This is the perfect thing to have to tide you over.
When the twins come home from preschool they are always eager for a snack. Usually they will have goldfish or pretzels. When I showed them the cookies they were really excited to try them.
“A” gobbled down the peanut butter cookie and ate the fruit and nut one next. She saved her chocolate cookie for last. When she bit into the peanut butter one she said “MMMMMMM.” I had to urge her to slow down, as she was just shoving the cookies into her mouth.
I later asked what she thought of the cookies and she replied “they were good.” She said her favorite was the chocolate. B is not a big fan of sweets so I was curious about how she would react. She had some of her chocolate and fruit and nut cookie and ate all of the peanut butter. I think she really enjoyed the more savory taste of the peanut butter cookie.
I have a confession to make. We did not share all the goodies with the kids. My husband and I ate the Organic Brownie Bites ourselves for dessert! At 100 calories or less this made a great after dinner treat. The consistency was between a cookie and a cake and you could really taste the freshness in every bite. Not to mention the luscious chocolate flavor. This would satisfy any sweet tooth. I will say that I had a bite of it out of the package and then warmed the rest up in the microwave for a few seconds. I preferred it warm because it reminded me of a freshly baked brownie. Hubby had his at room temperature and loved it as well.
We had such fun tasting these yummy baked goods and if we had to pick one we liked the best, we would pick the Fruit and Nut Breakfast Cookie. I thought it reminded me of an oatmeal cookie which I am very partial to, and Hubby liked the fruit flavors.
One of my favorite things about these products is the fact that they are not just for breakfast. Sure they make a nutritious way to start the day, but they make great snacks throughout the day as well. I love that I can split half of an Original Breakfast Cookie between my 3 kids, serve it up with a glass of milk and have them all feeling satisfied and not whining about how they want something else. Not that my kids ever whine.
