Peanut Power Bites with #MegaFood #MomsMeet

Getting the right amount of fruits and veggies in each day is tough. Add picky eating tendencies to the mix and mealtime can be a big headache!

Thankfully, our family isn't the only one with a picky eater and there are other sneakier ways to fit in key nutrients! Vitamins in tablet form are great for adults but what about children who have difficulty swallowing or resist taking a tableted multivitamin?

Meet MegaFood. They are a company committed to making products that use real food from family-owned farms to make a real difference, and have produced some of the most effective and award-winning supplements available today.

MegaFood has partnered with Kauai Organic Farms, Lundberg Family Farms, and Uncle Matt’s Organic to whip up kid-friendly powders that can be slipped into just about anything, making good nutrition just that much easier to swallow

As Moms Meet Ambassador, I was sent three different types of Kids Nutrient Booster Powders to explore:
Kids Daily Multi: Kids Daily Multi promotes well-being and healthy development, with organic turmeric, carrots, fresh fruits and 23 essential vitamins and minerals per serving.*

Kids Daily Immune: Kids Daily Immune, featuring oranges from Uncle Matt’s Organic and elderberry & echinacea, promotes and helps to strengthen a healthy immune response year round.*

Kids Daily B-Centered: Kids Daily B-Centered featuring Lundberg Family Farms organic brown rice, provides daily support for mental focus, cognitive function, and a sense of calmness.* Formulated with a full spectrum of FoodState® B Vitamins, this blend supports healthy mental and physical energy levels.*

These powders can be easily added to smoothies, pudding, shakes or no-bake treats. Mr. 3-Year-Old and I worked together to make these Peanut Power Bites using the Kids Daily Multi powder.


We added four scoops of the MegaFood Kids Daily Multi powder along with the rest of the power bite ingredients.


After refrigerating the mixture for 30 minutes, we rolled the dough into balls and they were ready to eat! Gotta love the ease of no-bakes!


These Peanut Power Bites are especially tasty when made with NuttZo's Peanut Pro Smooth nut butter!

MegaFood's Kids Daily Multi powder didn't have a strong taste and would be highly undetectable for any children to eat. You know how some kids have those "healthy food detectors" that go off at the taste/sight/smell of anything overly nutritious?

I can't speak for the long-term benefits for these powders but I will say they are loaded with nutrients and certainly don't spoil the flavor of whatever recipe they are thrown into.

What was disappointing is that these powders are for children five years of age and older (always read the fine print!) so, while Mr. 3-Year-Old did help me make these Power Bites, he couldn't taste-test them.

Don't worry, he got his own batch anyways!
