HappyBaby Review and Giveaway



When I found out I would be doing a review of HappyBaby Food, I was ecstatic! As you all know, if there are organic baby foods, snacks and meals out there, I want my paws on them! I have to admit, I was worried about the accessibility of these products though. Were they going to be readily available to myself and others? The answer is a resounding YES. I found HappyBaby products at my local Target and Babies R Us!

Not only do I love that their products are organic and locally available to everyone, but they are affordable too! I found all the prices for the HappyBaby products to be comparable to their non-organic counterparts! This makes me a very happy mama. Eating organic is very important to me, but it isn't always possible in this economy. With HappyBaby products, I know my kids are getting the best and my wallet is not taking a hit.

Lets take a look at all of the fabulous items they offer and I'll give you the run down of what I think.

First up are the HappyBellies Organic Cereals. We only tried out the Oatmeal cereal because that is the one we bought and fell in love with. When I went back to get more, we decided to get the same one! They are also available in Brown Rice and Multi-Grain varieties(certified organic!). All of the cereals are enhanced with DHA for brain and eye development, plus the iron, vitamins and minerals that are essential to baby's health. I especially love the added probiotics to help strengthen baby's digestive system and help ward off allergies. These sell for about $3.99 per 7 ounce can.



Next up we tried out the HappyBaby Organic Puffs. These were an instant hit in our house because my children already loved the Gerber Puffs. I'm a much happier mama feeding my children puffs made with 1/2 the sugar as leading brands and that are a good source of Iron, Vitamin D, Calcium and B Vitamins. They are also made with whole grains and taste great! We bought these at Target and the container was already almost halfway gone before we got home! HappyBaby Organic Puffs will cost you about $3.39 per container.


The biggest hit in our household were the HappyMelts Organic Yogurt Snacks. I have never seen my kids eat a snack so quickly! These are lifesavers on car trips and on any outing we need to go on. We bought ours at Babies R Us for about $3.49, which is once again comparable to the non-organic versions out there. They are Gluten free, have zero preservatives and contain probiotics for digestive health! I love that they melt right in their mouth, which makes these ideal for babies and toddlers! HappyMelts are available in strawberry, banana mango and mixed berry flavors.






Unfortunately we have not been able to find the HappyBites and HappyBaby Frozen products in our area as of yet. We do have a Whole Foods a good distance from us and HappyBaby products are supposed to be carried there as well. I do plan on making a trip there to try to find them and when I do, if I am able to find them, I will do another mini post about these specific products.




The last of the HappyBaby products are the HappyBaby Pouches and HappyTot Pouches. These are convenient baby food pouches for Moms on the go! I have had the pleasure of trying these out with my Violet when she was a baby and every flavor was a huge HIT! Our favorite was the apple cherry flavor! These only cost a little over a dollar each and I found them at my Target! You cannot beat that price for organic baby food. As she has gotten older, we have transitioned from the HappyBaby Pouches to the HappyTot Pouches and they are just as well loved by my little Violet!


I am extremely happy with my experiences with HappyBaby and will for sure be purchasing the HappyBaby Pouches again for this next little one due in May! I know they have reliable snacks for all of my children and I love having the reassurance that everything is organic, healthy and delicious.
