Amy's cheese pizza toaster pops

Sometimes I would look at a pop-tart and wonder if there is a savory version of it out there. Lo and behold - there it is - Amy's cheese pizza pop-tart.

It has a lot of gooey bright red tomato sauce which freaked my son out. My daughter ate it fine and then finished her brother's too.

Fage greek yogurt with super fruits

Fage came out with a line of superfruit yogurts - blueberry-acai, strawberry-goji, mango-guanabana and cherry-pomegranate.

Unlike most other other greek yougurts out there these feel light - like a whipped yogurt. They each have around 16% sugar and I am OK with that. The twins love their new dessert.

Puranpoli from Deep Foods

Puranpoli (or bobbattu as I knew it) was a childhood favorite. Back then my mom would make it from scratch - the dough had to sit in a tub of oil for X number of hours! When I found this light version from Deep foods I had to try it.

Of course it was not as good as I remembered it, but very acceptable. It is not too greasy or too sweet. My son loved it but my daughter refused it after the first bite.

Bob's Red Mill 10 whole grains flour

I am a big fan of Bob's Red Mill's 10 grain hot cereal. Iam always trying to incorporate it everywhere. So when I learned about their 10 grains flour I had to try it.

With 32% fiber and 40% protein for the day in each cup it is now a staple in the house. I use it to make pancakes, bread and am even incorporating it into desserts.

And this is my 300th post!

Newman's Own Honey Flax Flakes

These honey flax flakes from Newman's Own are big enough for the kids to eat dry as a snack. They also have them with milk for breakfast - I crush them down a bit before adding the milk.

Honey flax flakes do not have any high fructose corn syrup but do have sugar and honey - each serving has 8 grams of total sugars.

New England Naturals' chewy granola bars

I bought these maple nut granola bars from New England Naturals for the grown ups and the twins demanded bites. They liked them and the antioxidant bars are pretty good too.

Apple clusters from Trader Joe's

These dried crispy crunchy apple clusters from Trader Joe's were a big hit. In general, the kids like crisp dried fruit. They call them 'foot chips' and are always clamouring for them whenever I open the pantry door.
