Review: DinDins Toddler Food
Let's face it. Feeding toddlers is difficult. Feeding toddlers in the city has proven to be even slightly MORE difficult that "normal" because it's not always easy to find readily available organic ingredients. For us, it's a trek to Whole Foods, green markets, and even our local organic produce store is a 15 minute walk away.
I've been introduced to the perfect alternative option. DinDin's is a children's food delivery service for here in Manhattan and now DUMBO.
The food is all organic and is packaged in 75% recycled (and recyclable) material boxes. It arrives in a handy reusable red shopping bag and is all labeled clearly for fridge/freezer storage.
When we received our order, I immediately put it all in the freezer for later use. As you may know, I recently left my family and traveled to Utah for a conference, and my husband couldn't have been happier to have this fantastic food on hand for the kids (and maybe even himself). Both of my children loved it- and they are usually fairly tough sells on everything that is NOT ice cream. I was happy that they were getting healthy, nutritious, organic food when I wasn't there to cook it for them. Such an easy, affordable option ($2-$3 PER MEAL!) -DinDin's will become a standard in my home.
