Let me give you a quick backstory before I introduce you to your soon-to-be life saver:
My son has always loved his veggies and especially his fruits. He’s on the smaller side for his age (20 months old and he just made it to 21lbs). He’s healthy, he’s just small, always really has been ever since he got out of that newborn stage. When he was starting to try baby food he was still breastfeeding… a lot. He weaned off of the breast when he was almost 14 months old and I was really nervous. It was then fully up to what I was giving him for him to get his nutrients and not everyday was a walk in the park with his food. He’d go through these phases of loving food, and then the next week- wanted nothing to do with it if it needed to be chewed. Since he was already a small child, I was a little scared when he’d be teething and go on these food strikes.
Recently, I came across Veggie Sprinkles! You’re probably like, “What the heck is that?” It is a game changer!
Easy Peasie Veggie Blends are custom blends of all natural veggie powders. Veggie powders are just vegetables that are completely dried up and then ground into those tiny, yet amazing, veggie sprinkles!

I’m partnering up with Easy Peasie Co. to share these amazing “Sprinkles” that you can add to any meal! Not only for your children, but your entire family- literally anyone in your home that eats food can benefit!
Easy Peasie was created by two amazing mamas, one a pediatrician and the other, an engineer. Knowing the creators are Moms themselves gives me relief. They know what it’s like to want their children flourishing with the nutrients they need, and I love that they’ve created a trusting product to help us parent’s out!
I want to spread the word about this amazing product because I really believe in it for everyone in the family, not just the children. I add it to all of our meals and snacks, especially if there’s a sauce (I add more than I normally would)! It’s always kept in view as well, so we remember to add it to whatever we are cooking or even baking!
Using Easy Peasie Veggie Blends is also a way to gently get your child’s tastebuds used to that veggie taste. They aren’t completely tasteless (usually when I add it super flavored food- I don’t taste it at all), but they blend so well to all kinds of foods! They give these bursts of tiny tastes and get this- that is what gets your child used to the taste of veggies so it isn’t so foreign.
The amount of Easy Peasie Veggie Blends to use to fulfill the daily serving of veggies varies with the age of the child but please keep in mind, using these Veggie Sprinkles doesn’t mean you should stop trying to introduce whole veggies. Make sure you’re continuing to offer whole veggies and let them test the waters out on their own! We like to give Oliver whole veggies and then add the veggie sprinkles to something we know he will eat. This gives us the reassurance that even though he didn’t eat the complete veggie, he still is getting those nutrients, but that we let him explore the whole veggie as well! You can never have too many veggies!
We have mixed Easy Peasie Veggie Blends in so many meals:
- Ground beef
- Mac and cheese
- Rice Cakes (Oliver’s FAV)
There’s so many foods to put these on! Get creative with your sprinkles! We also have an air fryer and we include the veggie sprinkles in the seasoning to air fry (especially with chicken nuggets or fries) so that would be something else to try if you have one of the handy air fryers at home!
You can visit their website to get more information!
We really do love our Veggie Blends, it really gives me peace of mind when Oliver is teething and doesn’t want to chew anything, or when he’s in a phase of picky eating. I know you cannot force a child to eat, but knowing I can give him what he needs discreetly really eases my mind!
