Disclosure: I was provided a variety of My Superfoods products to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
I love when people see a problem and put their heads together to create a solution. I love it even more when that solution is a tasty treat that my kids love to eat. I triple love it when that tasty treat is available at Target and gives me a legitimate reason to make a trip to my favorite place on Earth.
Created by two moms that saw a desperate need for a nutrient-dense snack for toddlers, MySuperfoods is a New Jersey based brand that serves up healthy, organic treats for kids that are no longer babies but not quite big kids. While there are oodles of snacks available for the kiddos, (perhaps not) surprisingly most of them are high in sugar and sodium and contain many other not-so-healthy ingredients (translation: words you can’t actually pronounce). Luckily for all the moms with toddlers out there, Katie Jesionowski and Silvia Gianni set out to fill the visible void on grocery store shelves and MySuperFoods was born.
MySuperFoods offers two different snack options: MySuperCookies and MySuperSnacks. Both snacks are chock full of healthy goodness and so delicious your kids won’t even realize it. All MySuperFoods snacks are high in protein, fiber, vitamins & minerals, antioxidants AND they’re non-GMO and low in sugar and sodium. Not only that, you won’t find a single artificial, impossible-to-pronounce ingredient in any MySuperFoods product.
MySuperSnacks are yummy little granola bites packed with nutrition and packaged in a convenient resealable pouch. These soft little bites (think brownie or oatmeal cookie texture) are available in three delicious flavors that my kiddos (and I) absolutely love: Blueberry Banana Acai, Apple Raisin, and my daughter’s personal favorite, Chocolate Chip. I dole these out as a ‘treat’, so having a resealable pouch is really handy, and makes for easy snacking on the go. After years of crumbs and Cheerios lining the bottom of my purse, I am extraordinarily grateful that a brand FINALLY adopted a resealable pouch for kids snacks. The individual pouches also make it super convenient to pack MySuperSnacks in lunch boxes for an easy nutritious snack.
MySuperCookies contain the same nutritional benefits as MySuperSnacks and contain powerhouse ingredients like chia seeds, flax and coconut oil. Available in three delicious flavors – Blueberry Vanilla, Honey and Chocolate – these little bundles of organic goodness will definitely tempt your toddler’s tummy. And the best part? There’s no Mom Guilt involved. You can rest assured that while you’re giving your kids cookies, you’re giving them cookies made with the best possible ingredients.
My kids are both wild about MySuperFoods, and my daughter always make sure they’re included on our shopping list. For the record, our Target shopping list generally looks something like this:

Beyond the nutritional benefits of MySuperFoods is an educational aspect that turns snacking into a valuable learning experience. With names like ‘Vita-Claire’ and ‘Oxi-Rae’, the SuperKids are a team of characters (adorably based on Katie and Silvia’s own kids) that tout the ‘super’ benefits of nutrition and healthy eating. The characters are not only featured on the product packaging, but emblazoned right on each MySuperCookie! Visit the MySuperFoods website for fun SuperKids coloring pages and exciting information about nutrition. My kids have had a blast with these fun activities.
My kids (and I) are huge fans of this fabulous brand, and they’re well on their way to becoming SuperKids themselves. Visit the MySuperFoods website for additional information, and be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest news and special offers!
