Ella's Kitchen Giveaway

So upon receiving my sampler box of Ella's Kitchen, I had a picky eater who would not eat her veggies, nor most fruits. Her menu for the day consisted of cheese, juice, crackers, an occasional strawberry, and perhaps some chicken if she was really hungry. Most moms of two year old's have a daily battle to get their little one to eat something out side the dairy group. 

Ella's Kitchen is the brainchild of Paul Lindley. Paul wanted to provide his children and others to eat better food and also to discover that healthy food can be fun, tasty and cool.They have taken simple, natural ingredients that ooze goodness and created foods, and packaging, that should connect with kids - with flavors, colors, textures and even names that will appeal to all of their senses. Ella's Kitchen has two types of organic foods-- the Smoothie Fruits and the Stage 1 Baby Foods. 

The Stage 1 Baby Foods are combination's like Carrots, Apples and Parsnips or Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkins, Apples and Blueberries. The Smoothies are come in two flavors-- The Yellow One and The Red One. Each smoothie contains fruits from red fruits or yellow fruits.

I had put the Ella's Kitchen sampler in the fridge; I thought it being cold it might taste better. Emma loved that it was own little pod of goodness! You twist off the cap and voila-- fruits and vegetables mixed into one yummy container. I tried giving her her normal breakfast of oatmeal, but lately she has been pushing it away. I broke out The Yellow One Smoothie and instantly Emma wanted it! She loved it and sucked down the whole thing. At least after I knew she had gotten some nutritious vitamins and minerals that she wouldn't have gotten otherwise. I even squirted a little in her oatmeal-- and she ate it all down! I love that what you see is really what you get! There is nothing else in the smoothies and baby food other than the stuff listed. You can trust the foods to be healthy and helpful! 
There are 4 new flavors too! The Stage 1 Butternut squash, carrots, apples, and prunes and then the Spinach, apple, rutabaga. And then the Smoothies: The Green One - Apples, pears, banana, kiwi fruit  and The Purple One - bananas, apples, blackcurrants, blueberries
organic food awards 08
Now when Emma is a bit fussy with her meal, I give her one of her smoothies or baby foods-- it kind of acts like an appetizer and then eventually she usually eats her regular meal! 

Ella's Kitchen can be found online and at stores across the US including Babies R Us and Whole Foods.
