We live in a busy world where running errands, cleaning the house, setting appointments, etc. can quite literally take over our lives. It can be hard to fit in everything we need when the day is next to bursting with important errands to run and chores to complete. At the end of a long day, it takes everything I have to throw together a good balanced meal for my family. I’m great at making an assortment of comfort foods but they aren’t necessarily healthy and recently I’ve been trying to focus more on providing adequate nutrition for the growing little ones our family.

With school starting in just a few months, making sure my little ones get the nutrition they need once the school year starts is more of a concern than ever. When you have young ones in the home who are entering into the school system or returning for a new year, they’ll be busy learning new subjects and pursuing a more active lifestyle than they experienced over the summer. Their days will be jam packed with fun and exciting new activities that will help them soak up the new course material for the year. It’s important during this time to provide them with the nutrition they need to help fuel their bodies and keep them strong and healthy.

Similac® knows just how important it is to give your children the proper nutrition they need. Similac® also knows how hectic life can get and that sometimes providing that nutrition can be tricky as there are picky eaters galore in young children and they don’t always cooperate with mum and dad on what foods are best for them. The Go & Grow by Similac® products are the easiest solution on the market today to ensure that your little ones are getting the best nutrition possible, even if they’re not too enthusiastic about what’s being put in front of them.

When using the Go & Grow by Similac® products, you have two options to choose from. You can either use the Go & Grow by Similac® Milk-Based Powder and mix it with water to go with your little ones breakfast, or you can purchase the Go & Grow by Similac® Mix-Ins™, which are incredibly easy to use; just add them to ½ cup serving of food and watch as your little ones devour it, bite by bite. Unlike other nutritional products, the great thing about the Go & Grow by Similac® Mix-Ins™ is that they don’t affect the texture of the foods they’re mixed in, so it’s easy to encourage your little one to try new foods without the added strangeness of a powder. It’s also important to know that this product is meant for toddlers and beyond (ages 1-4), not for young babies or infants.


It’s important to note that while the Go & Grow by Similac® Mix-Ins™ are an excellent way to get a little extra nutrition into your little ones, it isn’t a miracle product. The packets should be mixed with healthy foods rather than unhealthy options and is not a replacement for healthy eating. It is however an excellent source of protein, fiber, and other essential vitamins and minerals so it’s great to use in conjunction with other healthy snacks or meals, especially those geared towards getting your little ones ready for school in the mornings or in their snacks after they’ve come home from school.

If the Go & Grow by Similac® products sound like something your little ones could benefit from, especially since they’ll be off to school soon, then head over to your local Walmart where you can purchase them either in-store (I found them easily in the aisle with the formula), or head online to Walmart
