I am always on the search for healthy snacks for my kids. Last summer my sister showed me a cool trick to get kids to eat their apple sauce… cut a straw and stick it into the foil on a single serving of apple sauce… BRILLIANT! Keeps things clean and the kids think it’s fun. Only problem is that you can’t send your child to school with a straw and expect them to neatly puncture the foil on the container…nor can you assume the teacher will have time to do it for them… so I was excited to test the Peter Rabbit Organics fruit and veg puree pouches! A mother’s dream come true!
The fruit and veggie puree pouches come in six flavors kids love (and I received one of each for my kids to try):
- Strawberry and Banana *Mommy’s Favorite
- Apple and Grape
- Mango, Banana and Orange *Kids Favorite
- Sweet Potato, Corn and Apple
- Carrot, Squash and Apple
- Pea, Spinach and Apple
Parent’s don’t have to worry about giving their kids this healthy snack. The fruit and veggie puree pouches are all organic, contain 100% fruit and veggies, and never have added sugar or anything artificial. The fruit you see on the front is what’s inside! Sneak a peak at the label and you will see that these snacks are high in vitamin C, have between 70 and 85 calories, 0 fat and 1.5-2 grams of fiber. Oh and those of you on Weight Watchers each pouch is 2 points…I know, I took the Strawberry and Banana one to work the other day! Hey it’s the perfectly healthy snack for moms too. Kira and Logan weren’t huge fans of the veggie purees, but the fruits were fantastic! I tasted the veggie ones, and really they didn’t taste bad at all. My kids have been sick, so their taste buds are a little off.
Peter Rabbit Organics don’t require refrigeration before eating and come in BPA-free resealable pouches for easy packing. If you do open it and want to save it for later, then YES you will need to put it into the refrigerator (and consume within 48 hours). Plus, the convenient, squeezy pouch (with a no-choke cap) makes it fun and easy for little hands! Perfect for school lunches, picnics, or on-the-go snacks!
