Finding wholesome snacks the entire family enjoys is not an easy task. With my new lifestyle of healthier eating, I’m trying to instill the benefits of eating healthier to my children and encourage snacking to provide essential nutrients for long-lasting energy for their growing bodies. Although, I encourage fruits and vegetables, having a picky 10 year old who refuses most healthy foods is a challenge. Does this get frustrating as a parent? Absolutely! Gavyn enjoys pears, though they must be canned, he loves bananas and strawberries, but in smoothie forms, vegetables-forget it. So instead of putting up a fight with my child, I respect his needs, giving him snacks he enjoys such as turkey wrapped around string cheese, whole grain toast with natural peanut butter and homemade muffins with hidden pureed fruits rather than oil.
This is why our family is enjoying SunRype, the manufacturers of 100% all-natural fruit snacks and bars. I don’t know any child that doesn’t love fruits snacks and strips, the disappointment is most are processed, sugar-laden junk which is why I never buy them. I’m not going to give my kids corn syrup, sugar, dyes and artificial flavors when I’m trying to offer healthy snacks. SunRype offer fruit bars, fruit strips, fruit bites and other products that are smart snacks because they contain ingredients I understand and don’t feel guilty about giving to my kids.
Wildberry or Strawberry 100% Fruit Strip-At only 45-50 calories, these flavorful strips contain no fat and carbs from natural fruits. There are no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. I feel good sending my kids to school with this low calorie snack. You’ll appreciate the minimal ingredients which includes items such as Apple puree concentrate, apple and pear and grape and elderberry and strawberry and lemon juice concentrates.
Strawberry Mango & Summer Berries Just Fruit & Grains-My absolutely favorite on-the-go snack! I was surprised trying my first grain bar as there are bits of grain such as oats and barley throughout the all fruit bar. The summer berries even includes veggie pieces! When I’m in a time crunch after working out, these give me much needed energy back. They are low in fat and offer 2 servings of fruits or fruits/veggies per bar. Absolutely delicious.
FruitSource 100% fruit bar in strawberry and blueberry pomegranate are thick fruit bars, with no fat and only 120 calories per bar. The bars appear marbled with fruit and satisfies my sweet tooth craving. Again, nothing but natural fruit. My kids enjoy the FruitSource bars.
I love that each of these individually wrapped snacks are sweetened naturally from fruits, offer no complex ingredients or harmful additives I fear to give to my kids and are a healthier alternative to many snacks kids appreciate. They taste delicious and are convenient. We love chopping up the fruit bars into pieces and adding to our oatmeal, a delicious alternative to sugary dried fruit. Since Gavyn likes minimal fruits, these are a great way to give him his servings of fruits and or vegetables. Have children with gluten sensitivities or nut-allergies? You’ll want to check out SunRype Squiggles 100% Fruit Twists, SunRype 100% Fruit Strips, SunRype FruitSource Mini Bites and SunRype FruitSource Mini Bites Plus Veggie as they do not contain any tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, egg, milk sesame or soy products and they are manufactured in a facility that does not process any products containing these allergens. The ingredient labels are clearly marked with allergen information
