Happy Tot Greek Yogurt Smoothies Review

My kids just barely missed the advent of food in a pouch.  It started with baby food, but my kids were already chomping baby carrots by then. I remember when I first started spotting itty bitties sucking applesauce out of a pouch, it reminded me of when a street vendor in Belize City tried to sell Craig and I water in a bag.  We were like, “Uh, no thanks?!”, only to find that that was how ALL the water in Belize was being sold at that time.

Happy Family Yogurt Smoothies

When I became part of the Happy Family company’s Happy Bloggers team, I was offered the chance to review Happy Tot Greek Yogurt Smoothies. I responded that I would be happy to do a review, but wasn’t sure it was appropriate for my kids, since they are 5 and 6.  But, as it turns out, I was so, so wrong.

Because my kids love these things.  I actually received them in the mail on a day when we were helping friends move into their new house.  The fact that these little pouches don’t have to be refrigerated seemed to fit the day, since our friends did not have their fridge yet. I brought a few along with us for a snack, and found that the kids had devoured them before I even knew it (or could take a picture)!  I thought that the ingredients pictured on the outside of the pouch might slow them down (beets? kale? spinach?) but no.

And then, over the next several weeks, the kids continued to rave about each of the different flavors, and I fell in love with their functionality.  They’re portable, mess-proof, don’t need refrigeration, but can be frozen, which means they are perfect for:

And yes, there are a lot of different food-in-a-pouch options out there right now, but I know with the Happy Family brand that I am getting a nutritional organic food with no artificial ingredients or preservatives. I love that they’ve worked in super healthy fruits and veggies in a way that is still tasty and fun.  My six year old’s favorite flavor is the kale, spinach, and apple smoothie!

Happy Family is letting me share the fun with you!  I’m giving away a mixed case of Happy Tot Greek Yogurt Smoothies, plus coupons for all of the Happy Family products. To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment telling me how or where you would use your smoothies. I will close the giveaway and randomly draw a winner on Sunday, June 2nd at 10pm CST. Best of luck!

Disclosure: I was provided with a mixed case of Happy Tot Greek Yogurt Smoothies by Happy Family for review purposes.  I am also a #HappyBloggers Ambassador.

    Oh my gosh-we love Happy Family foods-The Blueberry has been eating them since she started eating solids! I’ve not seen these in my local mega mart, but we would love to try them. We’re yogurt junkies in this house-especially great in the car for the long commute between home in Missouri and school in Arkansas.

  2. Alejandra Montano Terziev says:

    I would use the smoothies as snacks during an all day (3 plane change) trip to Macedonia! :)

    They would be great for baby girl this summer when we are on the run or going to the pool, I’m sure big bro would get in on the smoothie goodness as well.

  4. India L. says:

    We would love to try Happy Tot Greek Yogurt Smoothies. Dylan is exploring all sorts of tastes and textures now that he’s 15 months old (12 months adjusted). He loves yogurt and loves all the other Happy Family pouches we have tried so far. (In fact, I like some of them too!)

  5. Ashlee says:

    We ration out our pouches and generally only use them when we are traveling due to their high cost. But they are great! Both of my kids love them!

  6. Fawn says:

    :) I thought of you when I was writing this post.

  12. polly says:

    will be great to bring with us when we are running around with our 4 year old grandson

  13. shirley says:

    I would use in the car and when we are at the park or lake.

  14. Maria D says:

    In January I came to LA to live for 7 months and in March I was weighting 139lbs. (initially I was 119) and it happened because I went crazy with food and I was eating very unhealthy, now I am really into fitness working out almost everyday and eating very natural and watching out the content of what I eat. This yogurts seem delicious (I love greek yogurt), so I would basically use them as a snack or as my yogurt in the morning :) (and if a kid with such a healthy mommy drinks them, then it should be nutritious too!)

  15. katie says:

    these would be perfect for our Grocery shopping day!

  16. Lawanna says:

    I like the idea of freezing yogurt and eating in on a warm summer day

  17. Kathy L. says:

    I would give these to my grandson. He had a heart transplant in January and he has monthly doctors appointments in Minneapolis. This is about an 8 hour ride round trip. This would be a perfect healthy snack!

  18. Jessica C. says:

    Anything that makes eating-the-go easier and healthier gets an A in my book. It seems my boys are always hungry and these seem like a good throw-in-the-backseat kind of food. :)

  19. Tracy says:

    I would use them as I shuttle kids to karate, visits and summer school. C seemed to really like them when she brought them to school. I miss that girl!!!

  20. Elaine says:

    Juliana and Jacob would love these after an afternoon of playing on the farm!

    I would use them on Sudays as a church snack

    I would eat them in the park. I would eat them in the dark. I would eat them in a boat, I would eat them with a goat. :-) haha! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  24. Lacey Burd says:

    My 2.5 year old loves pouches! She’s such a picky eater so I’m glad they are so nutritional. Not only are they great on the go, but they are really a perfect snack for anytime/anywhere :)

  25. Allison says:

    I’d bring them to work.

  26. Arik Issan says:

    Generation reversal … for my mom … she can sneek it into movie theater instead of eating popcorn

  27. these would be great for swim meet days for my 12 year old!

  28. Wehaf says:

    We would take on hikes, picnic dinners, and long car rides.

    I would use them when we go to the park or for a snack while we are playing outside this summer!

  30. Alycia says:

    My son needs to eat a little something in the mornings with his medicine, so I usually rely on fruit pouches like this as he can eat them himself without my assistance – a great way to tide him over before he has a real breakfast at daycare! :)

  31. Kristen Feola says:

    Perfect for the pool!

  32. Ellen Lauer says:

    I have a 7,4 and 2 year old. I find it hard to find HEALTHY, “on the go”, non-messy snacks that work for all three age groups. These would be perfect! The kids love to make Greek yogurt smoothies at home because they taste good; I love that they fill them up with protein, not just empty junk food calories! Way to go Happytot for making it possible to take this same healthy snack to the Zoo, park, school or Karate!
