Yo’ Drops Review and Giveaway! (Sponsored by EcoMom!)

Whether it is summer time trips outside or daycare lunches I always want to make sure SAP gets the healthiest snacks…which isn’t always easy with a picky (and messy!) two year old!  When I think healthy toddler snacks I think EcoMom, who has been my number one stop for eco-friendly organic snacks for SAP!  They carry my favorite brands like Plum Organics and Revolution Foods, and with such good deals on shipping, sales going on all the time, and even discounts for becoming an Ecopass member (15% off any and every order, plus free shipping!) it’s no wonder!

SAP loved the Mashups, but can get pretty messy with those, she gets bored of Fiddlesticks if she gets them too often, and Grammy Sammys seem like a treaty desert to her instead of a snack!  She would sit and eat a whole box if she could!  So I was looking for something that would not be too messy, would easily be transported in a diaper bag or school lunch box without breaking or getting too squished, and wouldn’t get bad if forgotten in the car…oh and of course she had to love eating it!

The Yo’ Drops we received! Both flavors were great!

When I saw EcoMom carried YoDrops by Revolution Foods it sounded like it fit my needs (and SAP’s!) perfectly.  We were sent two flavors: Berry Blast and Strawberry Banana-rama, both flavors I thought SAP would go crazy for.  Even though the box recommends 5 years and older the little freeze dried yogurt balls were quite small and the packs they came in were the perfect size for SAP!  I first handed her the open pack of a Strawberry Banana-rama and tried to show her how to eat them out of the pack (pouring them into her mouth) only to get a messy mess!  So I gave her one of her little bamboo plates and we poured them out on the plate and for the next 15 minutes we heard from her was “yogurt ball mama!  It’s a ball! num num num”.   I think they were as fun for her to eat as they were yummy!

SAP loved picking up the ‘yogurt ball mommy!’

Since SAPsDaDa is  the SAHD and I’m trying to get more dairy in SAP’s diet I suggested he give her some Yo’Drops for snack one of these days…can you guess what I came home to a few days later?  First thing he says to me when I walk in the door: “Well, she likes them!  She won’t leave me alone, she keeps asking for more!  How am I supposed to get anything done?!”  So beware parents, your little one might like Yo’ Drops too much! She definitely loved eating the Yo’ Drops!

I did tell him he could give her another pack, after all, they are good for her!  How can I complain about her wanting something made with real USDA organic fruit and yogurt, is gluten-free, has no high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients, and is even packaged in BPA packaging!  I didn’t even complain when she wanted to use the wrapper for her pretend grocery shopping!  It fit right in among her BPA free play food!
