The cold season started and my yogurt is not setting firm every time. So Iam back to flavored yogurts. By now the kids have been eating yogurt every. single. day. For over a year. They are still not sick of it, but in terms of flavor they don't perk up at new ones anymore.

The twins see their father grab breakfast bars almost every other morning. So of course they want to try them too. Since they don't like granola-like texture right now, I have been buying soft cereal bars and passing them off as cookies.
Whenever they want a 'cookie' I break up a bar and give them a piece each. They are happy and I try to tell myself that they are not actually cookies so we are OK.

Mandy of twin trials and triumps mentioned that her twins like Annie's bunnies. So on the next grocery run I picked some up. Made with organic whole wheat these are actually smaller than I thought and the twins took to them immediately.

Yes it's from Gerber and is a toddler food but still…… these banana cookies have fructose and sugar (but still manage to keep the sugar to 2 grams per serving,) no fiber, and are made with bleached flour (enriched though.) Really a mixed bag but the twins really like them and I only offer them when they are especially fussy.

I do bake - having said that Iam not messing with an American classic. I came across recipes for apple pie with no sugar added but just did not have the heart to try them. Also, I didn't think anyone in the house would eat them either.
So, when I saw this no sugar added apple pie from Shaw's, I had to bring it home. First off, I thought the pie needed a bit more baking - the crust was pasty and light colored. Half of us liked it (me, my daughter) while the other half did not.

I introduced goldfish to the kids a few times with no success - till now. These colored goldfish from Pepperidge Farm are a big success especially since they are learning to identify colors. I will plop a handful each in front of them and shout out a color. They take great pride in finding and eating the right colored ones.

Yoga vive? I rolled my eyes at the name but decided to try them because they are the very rare 'one ingredient' products. Using a special drying process, yogavive has managed to make apple chips.
The kids really like them and so do the adults. I see these as a staple in the house for a long time. Also, I will keep an eye out for new products by the company.

Since the kids like string cheese and eat them everyday (and sometimes multiple times a day) I decided to try a variation and bought these mozzarella sticks.
Both of them rejected them right away. On a hunch I peeled off the breading and bingo! Iam starting to notice a pattern - they don't like stuff that has a 'fried' texture.

Another miss - Iam not sure whether it was the texture (large vegetable pieces, and breading) or the spiciness. All the adults in the house like these vegetable cutlets from Deep Foods but the kids have not warmed up to them yet.
