Boddler Bites Flash Cards- Review & Giveaway!

I am currently in that stage of transitioning {B} from baby food to all foods. He is eating mostly all normal foods now, but it has been crazy. He is a picky eater, and I don't love cooking, so I feel like I just don't know what to do at times. I feel bad for the kid because there are times when he has the same things for each meal, for a week at a time!

I went in desperate search for help. I got lucky and found this awesome product called Food in a Flash Boddler Bites (Boddler = Older Baby + Younger toddler), the ABC's of feeding your Boddler! You may have seen these featured in the April issue of Everyday with Rachel Ray or this months BabyTalk Magazine! Boddler Bites flash cards are so awesome! Boddler Bites comes with 29 colored flash cards bound with a ring so you can keep them all together and flip through them anytime. These cards are thick, durable, and have tons of colorful, bright high quality pictures! The picture side is great for the kids learning their fruits and vegetables. Each card has the letter of the alphabet, along with various foods that correspond with that letter. The back side consists of ways to use those foods in snacks, recipes, and tips for parents, like how to cut a mango, and recipes for homemade granola bars!

Boddler Bites " solve the common problem of what to feed children ages 1-3 yrs old that is both quick and nutritious."-Boddler Bites
{B} loves blueberries so I immediately went to the B card and read what it had to say. The B card mentions that you can serve frozen blueberries slightly thawed, which make for a great teether! He also loved the baby food sweet potatoes, so I went to the S card and read up on ways that you can use actual sweet potatoes for "boddlers." I was excited to find 4 different options for using sweet potatoes various ways.. Steamed (with maple syrup, yum!), steamed with beets, Steamed with Avacado, or make sweet potato fries! These cards are just packed with tons of useful info and ideas, and I am so excited to continue using them for not only me to help with my cooking dilemmas, but to help {B} learn and develop his vocabulary!

Buy It: You can buy Food in Flash Boddler Bites cards from the Boddler Bites website here. A set of 29 cards retails $19.95, and would make a GREAT baby shower gift, or simply just to have in your home for your family.
