Organic Snacks For Kids
I have recently become interested in finding organic snacks for kids. Henry LOVES fruit in any form he can get his hands on. Caitlin on the other hand does not especially like fruit. If I could find an alternative snack food that Henry will like as well as would be tempting to Caitlin, I would have done well. I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago and was shopping in the organic food section. They had dried fruit in a handful of varieties. My issue with the selection was the high cost and weird choices. I am trying to get my kids to want to try the dried fruit, not turn their noses up at it!! They had passion fruit, pomegranate and grapefruit. Um..ok..like my kids are going to eat those!

Healthy Treats For Kids
Introducing healthy treats for kids does not need mean eating food that tastes like cardboard. It does however mean serving unprocessed munchies that are within the food pyramid. When you eat canned fruits, they are soaking in a bath of pure liquid fructose. Ga-Ross. Besides being slimy like a snail, canned fruit are not a smart choice to take to a picnic, the park or any other outing. Eating well doesn’t have to mean eating tasteless, bland foods. Peeled Snacks offer delicious dried fruits that are not like any other dried fruit I have had. Usually dried fruit is more like dried OUT fruit that you would take camping or on a NASA expedition. The Peeled Snacks Organic Fruit Picks Variety Pack (retail value $24.99) Contains 12 single servings of fruit in pineapple, banana, apricot, mango and apple. The fruit pieces are much bigger than I expected. They are really big and they taste so great. I promise you forget you are eating dried fruit and not a fresh piece of organic fruit. My kids were really skeptical about trying the Peeled Snacks, so they “made” me try one. WOW! I have slacked off with eating fruit and when you are trying to diet, you need to eat fruit. I LOVE how transportable these yummy snacks are. We went to the park for a few hours and I grabbed a couple packs of the dried fruit and bottles of water and we were good to go. How refreshing to have such a delicious snack rather than cheese crackers or pretzels. I am hooked! I bet I made you want to try one of the delicious fruits from Peeled Snacks!! Well, as luck would have it, you can now find Peeled Snacks at their newest distributor; your local Starbucks.
