Some days, all my toddler wants to eat is snacks, specifically Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish.
I blame Target.
We are in there on a
daily weekly basis and it seems like every other aisle has a special Goldfish display. Really?
It isn’t enough that I avoid the snack-food aisle when I’m there with my daughter…now I have to skip over the grocery section altogether?
Have you ever come across this with your child?
It’s right on the aisle for anyone toddling by to see. Right at her little eye level. Look at those ones on the bottom. Special springtime pastel-colored goldfish. Irre-freaking-sistible.
Not cool, Target.
So we grab a few bags, because hey- they’re on sale 3 for $5! And then that is all my child wants to eat for the next several days.
Thankfully, there are now so many different varieties, it is possible to feed her a full day’s worth of complete meals just out of Goldfish.
I call it “The Goldfish Diet.”
Rise and shine, kiddies!
For breakfast there are two yummy options: French Toast or Honey Buns…but with no mixing, baking, or clean-up for Mom!
For lunch, Pepperidge Farm® has pizza on the menu. Unfortunately, they don’t deliver. But they are ready right from the bag, so no need to heat the oven!
There are several varieties of pizza-flavored goldfish, including plain Pizza, Xplosive Pizza, and my favorite- Xtra Cheesy Pizza Mix-Up Adventures.
For that time when it’s not quite dinner but the little ones are pestering you for food, there are several flavors of goldfish that will make excellent appetizers. You can have quite the spread with a plate full of Cheddar, Parmesan, and Pretzel Goldfish. How fancy!
And when they say, Mom, can we have Goldfish for dinner, too?
Now you can say YES, because Pepperidge Farm® recently introduced Goldfish Mac & Cheese! There are four flavors: Butter Parmesan, Cheddar, Cheesy Pizza, and Nacho Cheese.
Time for the best part of every meal…dessert! There are a seemingly endless supply of dessert-flavored Goldfish. These are some of my favorites:
Congratulations! You’ve made it through a day of both adhering to your toddler’s picky palate and serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
Have a nice cup of Hot Cocoa Goldfish and relax. Oh and if a certain someone wakes up still hungry in the middle of the night? Never fear- S’mores Goldfish are the perfect midnight snack 😉
