It’s no secret that I love shopping at ALDI. Great prices, healthy options, and not to mention I can be in and out and on my way in less than 30 minutes!
When I found out about the new baby and toddler line, Little Journey, that was coming to ALDI I was really excited. Mostly because now I wouldn’t have to make an extra stop just for baby snacks! And when you have to haul a little one (or two or three or more!) to multiple grocery stores – you know that is a big deal.
At the time, I didn’t even realize how many awesome products were coming. Not only snacks but baby food squeeze pouches, diapers, toddler training pants, wipes, baby wash and even formula are among some of the Little Journey products you can find at ALDI.
I got the opportunity from Influenster and ALDI to try out a variety of the new Little Journey products. And I have to say, I love them all! Everything is great quality, definitely comparable to name brands but SO much cheaper.
All of the snacks are a big favorite around here. Yogurt bites, puffs and little munchers. We also love the baby food pouches. We go through a lot of these because they are really convenient when we are out and about. And you all know we like to keep busy! The best part is the baby food squeeze pouches are organic and only .79 cents! Some of E’s favorite kinds are apple mango, apple blueberry banana, apple banana raspberry yogurt, and prune apple butternut squash quinoa.
We are also a big fan of the diapers. They are hypoallergenic, have a stretchable waist line and have 12-hour leak protection. They have more features and ARE CHEAPER than the other value brands. Check out this side by side comparison.
Being on a tight budget with only one income we have really had to reign in our spending. ALDI makes cutting on our grocery bill so much more do-able. The quality and options, especially healthier options, has greatly improved over the years. And I’m not just talking about baby food and snacks. ALDI has dietitians on their team that work to help shoppers find foods with high nutritional value. Check out the Dietician’s Picks to see a wide selection of healthy choices you can find at ALDI.
The former nutrition educator in me who used to work solely with low-income families gets super geeked about ALDI. You can find things like whole grain pasta, coconut oil, almond and soy milk, ground turkey, and cartons of liquid egg whites. There is also a gluten-free line of products if that is necessary for you or your family. There is even a selection of organic fruits and vegetables. I could seriously go on and on. Hearing that it costs too much to eat healthy is the number one thing people in my classes would tell me. It doesn’t have to! See my other tips for shopping on a budget.
If you haven’t been to ALDI, I highly recommend it. Find the closest store near you, grab a quarter for a cart, bring a couple bags (one of the ways they keep prices low) and go now! It has allowed my family to make healthy choices all while keeping the grocery bill down. The new Little Journey line is just icing on the cake. Thank you, ALDI!
Disclosure: I did receive a box of Little Journey products from Influenster and ALDI to review and promote. I was not required to write this blog post, but you guys, I just love ALDI so much and wanted to share! All opinions and statements are 100% my own!
