I guess you could call me a crunchy mom. I make my own baby food and plan to breastfeed until my daughter is a year old (no, not 3 — I’m not that crunchy.) So I was excited to find HappyBellies, a baby cereal to go along with the "only the best for my kid" philosophy I’m trying to incorporate as a mom. (Don’t ask about my own eating habits, where my mantra is more like "Where’s my Ben & Jerry’s?!")
HappyBellies cereal, which comes in three flavors—brown rice, oatmeal and multigrain, is 100% natural and USDA-certified organic and it’s enriched with all the iron and vitamins and minerals your baby needs. It’s also probiotic. Yep, they add bacteria to it. Before you crinkle your nose in disgust, it turns out that this good bacteria actually strengthens your baby’s digestive system, helping protect it against allergy development.

To learn more about probiotics, along with Dr. Sears’s endorsement of HappyBellies, go to HappyBabyFood.com.Besides the fact that this product is possibly the healthiest outthere, it also tastes great. My six-month-old especially loves themultigrain, whether I mix it with bananas or serve it on its own. Ieven tried it myself and have to say… not bad!
The company is also doing some good for other babies around theworld. For every package you buy, a portion of the proceeds goes toProject Peanut Butter—a non-profit that provides food for starvingchildren in Malawi. HappyBellies cereal is available at Amazon.com. Whole Foods also carries it, along with Happy Baby‘s eight delicious flavors of frozen foods.
