A Smart Choice: Boost Your Child’s Health With a Baked Smart Cookie
If you could get your child to eat eight different fruits and vegetables in one small afternoon snack, wouldn’t you do it? All moms know it can be tough to get kids to eat nutritious foods, especially if their kids prefer eating unhealthy snacks filled with processed sugars and manufactured syrups.
That’s why two South Texas brothers decided to come together in 2017 to create a delicious, healthy cookie packed with fruits and veggies, making it what they like to call the Baked Smart Cookie.
Baked Smart Cookie: Our Mission
Because obesity and diabetes in our communities across the Rio Grande Valley is so common, the founders of Baked Smart Cookie began their journey to give children and moms a snack alternative that’s healthy and satisfies their sweet tooth.
The Baked Smart Cookie was made to help moms and dads everywhere have an easier time to include more fruits and vegetables into their kid’s diet. Not only will your child get the yummy, sweet snack they oh-so crave, but you’ll also get some peace of mind knowing that they’re eating a treat rich in nutrients.
So if your youngins won’t eat their vegetables or fruits on their own, you’ll definitely want to stock your pantry with some Baked Smart Cookies today.
So What’s in a Baked Smart Cookie?
The Baked Smart Cookie is a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie that contains a ½ cup of four different fruits and vegetables:
- Sweet potato
This healthy snack is certified USDA organic, non-GMO, vegan, and soy/peanut free. Each cookie is jam packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are essential for your child’s growth and development.
The Baked Smart Cookie is also free of all those icky preservatives, artificial flavors, and colors, so you can feel confident that your kiddo won’t be eating anything that is bad for them.
Fruits and Vegetables in Your Child’s Diet Are Important
The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that kids eat a healthy diet that includes a whole bunch of fruits, veggies, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products, plenty of protein foods, and oils.
Empty calories from added sugars and solid fats make up 40% of daily calories our kids and teens consume, from 2 to 18 years of age. Those ingredients negatively affect the quality of their diet, so because of this, empty calorie foods that you want to limit include sodas, fruit drinks, dairy desserts, grain desserts, and pizza.
Thanks to the founders of the Baked Smart Chocolate Chip Cookie, you can easily feed your little ones a healthy supply of vitamins and nutrients from eight different fruits and veggies that they need while satisfying their sweet tooth with every ooey-gooey chocolatey bite!
