Eating Right with Bugs Bunny and Friends!

Thursday, September 24, 2009


It can be a battle to get your toddlers and preschoolers to eat healthy. Mine are "snackers". They avoid meals and just snack - snack - snack throughout the day. And that's perfectly normal and can be healthy, if you help them make the right choices.

So I was just introduced to Eating Right Kids. They have an array of choices, all featuring Warner Brothers characters. Some products include:
  • Watermelon Applesauce
  • Special Recipe White Bread - 15% DV of Calcium and 3 grams of Fiber
  • Chewy Bars -  Mixed Fruit, Sour Strawberry and more
  • Fat Free Pudding - Chocolate, Tapioca, Vanilla
  • Fruit Cups - Mixed Fruit, Diced Pears, Diced Peaches
  • 100% Juice - no corn syrup and flavors like White Grape Cherry, Fruit Punch, Apple and Orange Tangerine
  • Frozen Entrees - Chicken Nuggets, Chicken and Cheese Enchilada, Macaroni & Cheese, Macaroni, Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs
  • Pasta - Tri-Color Wheat Rotini and Wheat Pasta Rings

I received some samples to try at home - a Mixed Fruit Chewy Bar and Macaroni with Beef. The Chewy Mixed Bar was a granola bar with tangy mixed fruit and a yogurt bottom. I only had one bar to split with the boys. It was so delicious, I would definitely consider buying more and throwing them in the diaper bag for on-the-go!

The Macaroni with Beef was HUGE. It has 2 servings in there - but I would be stuffed trying to eat it as an adult. So it is good to cook one for both boys AND me! It has 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, 28 grams of carbs, 3 grams of fat and 460 mg of sodium. It's kind of high on the sodium side, but low on fat. One serving is 160 calories. Sylvester the cat is on the container.

You can purchase all of these Eating Right Kids products at 1,700 Safeway locations. There are more than 60 items across 18 categories, including breakfast foods, produce, portable meals, dairy, snack, beverages and frozen entrees. It's available in both the Unites States and Canada.


Overall, the Eating Right Kids line encourages kids to eat right without losing the "fun". You'll find Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Taz, Sylvesterm Wile E. Coyote, Roadrunner, Marvine the Martian, Daffy Duck and other characters on the containers, making them easy to spot at the stores.

And you can feel comfortable knowing the producs are based on the most recent dietary recommendations and regulations from several federal and state agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Agriculture, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation adn the California School Nutritional Guidelines SB12.

And as Porky Pig would say ... "That's all folks!"
