BellyBar: Quick Nutrition Every Mom Needs - Review & Giveaway CLOSED

As a busy mom, I sometimes forget that all important part of my day called breakfast. Normally when I wake up, I wake up as late as possible so that I recover some sleep from getting up multiple times in the night. I sleep when my babies sleep so when I get up, they get up with me. That makes for a hectic few minutes as I try to get them both fed, dressed, and ready for the day.


BellyBar has become my new favorite breakfast. It is fast, easy, and the best part is that it is packed full of the nutrients that I need as a nursing mom. In one bar, you get close to all the nutrients your body needs in one day! That's a lot especially when you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Bellybar is a delicious, all-natural line of foods and beverages designed to meet the nutritional needs of women before, during and after pregnancy. Each BellyBar product is packed with key prenatal nutrients including iron, folic acid, calcium, protein and omega-3 DHA.

What I love about BellyBar is that they have lots of great choices to choose from when it comes to how to get your nutrition for the day. The first product I tried was their bars. I found the Berry Nutty Cravings just a little too sweet but still pretty good. The Mellow Oat was delicious with its Oat Grahams and Yogurt. I also ran into Motherhood Maternity and picked up Burstin' Chocolate to try. This one has a different flavor - I just can't put my figure on it but it is still yummy. My ultimate favorite though is the Baby Needs Chocolate! This one is so yummy! Not because baby needs chocolate but because mommy does and doesn't want to feel guilty about it!


The next thing I tried was the Citrus Chews and the Chocolate Cuddles Chews. I thought these were pretty yummy. One has chocolate - need I say more?

The last thing I tried was the Due For Chocolate Shake...do you think that BellyBar thought I needed chocolate? :-) To be honest, I do not like shakes like this so I was skeptical. Was it going to taste nasty? Or overly sweet? I loved it! It has a creamy, slightly sweet taste. The shakes also come in the flavor of Vanilla Dreams. It is definitely something I would buy.

And buy I did! You can find BellyBar at Target, Motherhood Maternity, and Walgreens as well as online. If you go to BellyBar online, you can print a $3.00 off a 5-ct Bellybar box, 4-pk Bellybar Shakes or Bellybar Chews pouch.

The only thing that may deter you from purchasing BellyBar is the cost. A box of 5 Bellybars will cost about $11.99 or $8.99 with the coupon. That's about $1.79 each. That would be costly if that's all you ate all day but I think that if you just had this for breakfast or a snack, this would replace other foods you might eat and wouldn't be bad at all. The other thing to keep in mind is all the nutrients this has that you wouldn't get if you skipped breakfast like I have the tendency to do because I forget. I don't think you can put a price tag on your nutrition because what you eat, your baby gets.

Also if you are not pregnant or breastfeeding, this is still a great food for you. Women need more nutrients than they think they do and this a great way to get it quick and easy. And nutrients haven't tasted better than they do with BellyBar!

BellyBar
knows how much I love their products so they have decided to share them with one of my readers. One of my readers will receive a BellyBar Gift Pack (about a $50 value) which includes:

• 2 bars of each flavor (Baby Needs Chocolate, Berry Nutty Cravings, Mellow Oat and Burstin’ Chocolate)
• 1 pouch of each chews flavor (Chocolate Cuddles and Citrus on Board)
• 2 shakes of Due for Chocolate Bellybar Shakes


This giveaway is CLOSED!

Thank you, BellyBar for sponsoring this great giveaway. Thank you for providing a quick, easy, and tasty way to get the nutrients that my body and baby needs during this important time in his growth.

I am guessing we were to subscribe to the newsletter? The directions on this post were confusing. I tried subscribing but it resulted in a page not found. But if we are to find a product we like, it'd be the Berry Nut Cravings.
