Chickapea Pasta is the New Avocado Brownie

How cute is this little Chickapea Fan! Nothing makes us happier than helping out a Mom provide a healthy meal and one that the kiddies love! This is exactly why Chickapea was created! We’re swooning over here in the office! Lonelle Selbo, a contributor to Healthy Moms, shared her story on their blog about her experience with her son. We’re so thrilled to share it with you.

Hooray for Healthy Yummy Food That My Toddler Will Eat

“Last night was a hallmark night. My somewhere-between-two-and-a-half-and-three-year-old man-in-training ate four (count ‘em, four) helpings of his dinner. During this time, he prompted me several times with “Mama, more pweeez!” and then dived in, occasionally making eye contact to nod emphatically and declare “Yummy!” with an earnestness that was a little bit heartbreaking.”

My son used to be a really easygoing eater…until he turned two. From that day on he’s been picky and opinionated about my ideas of what constitutes real food. Instead of anything I might suggest, he basically accepts only olives, smoked salmon, bagels and cream cheese, relying on the above for 90% of his sustenance (Jewish delis rejoice!) And so our mealtime struggles began. I consoled myself by remembering the many wonderful, whole and healthy foods I’d put into him in his first few years of life, at the very time all of his organs were *really, actually* still developing.

Then we got a care package with three boxes of Chickapea Pasta in the mail (the shell one, the tube one, and the twirly one), and my son, the very essence of restraint, grabbed them immediately off the kitchen counter. “Mine,” he declared, juggling all three boxes in his beautiful little hands and running into the living room. “Oh, you like them?” The excitement in my tone was a dead giveaway. I held my breath. “Mine pasta!” he said.
