All opinions shared here are my own.

My children have all been pretty picky eaters. They want to eat what they want and that is that.  They have all loved ice pops .  With the Zipzicle bags I can be a sly mom and sneak veggies and fruits into their ice pops.  And they eat them up like they are going out of style.  I  love it.  Zipzicle bags are completely portable . They are easy to fill ,easy to use and even easily reusable.

We've tried a couple of different recipes so far .  I'll share them below and let you know what the kids thought too. 

ICE Pop Recipe #1

Sprite  and Gummy worms (I'm aware this one isn't healthy)
They look neat. The kids voted the sprite is yummy but they said that the gummy worms got mushy and they didn't care for that so much.  They looked cool though!  FYI : Zipzicle says you should not freeze carbonated sodas unless you mix them with yogurt or ice cream to create more of a slushie type mixture.  We did and it turned out. Next time I'll replace the Sprite in this recipe with limeade or lemonade.  

ICE Pop Recipe #2 

Sliced Fruit 

We mixed up some kool-aid (didn't add in the sugar) and then I added 
sliced bananas or crushed pineapple to them.  The kids voted these super tasty and ate them right up! Hooray for Mom! 

ICE Pop Recipe #3 Recipe 

yogurt pops 
spoon in your favorite yogurt you can add in fruit or veggies we like (sweet potatoes) and freeze them 

Other tricks 

Use baby food veggies or fruits to add in sneaky ingredients. 
Make use of your blender.
