I don’t know about your kids, but nearly every time we go to the grocery store, my kids ask if we can get fruit snacks. Maybe it’s the fun characters on the package, or maybe it’s the little bites of sweetness, but they think fruit snacks are awesome. And when they ask, I almost always say no.
Because most of those fruit snacks you see at the grocery store? They’re full of sugar, artificial colors, and sweeteners we try to avoid. But what about a fruit snack that includes a full serving of fruits and vegetables? Now we’re getting somewhere.
Veggie-Go’s Snacks founders Lisa and John wanted to make a better snack. From their experience working on organic farms across Europe, they developed these uniquely flavored snacks to include both fruits and veggies.
Veggie-Go’s Snacks have some pretty good perks too:
- USDA Organic
- No added sugar
- Each pack contains 1 full serving of fruits and vegetables
The Veggie-Go’s Snacks come in two forms: fruit leather strips and small bites. And these aren’t your typical fruit snack bites either, with flavors like Strawberry Chia+Beets, Berry Rice Crisps+Greens, and Orange Cocoa Nibs+Carrots.
So that’s all good sounding stuff to this mom, but how do they taste? Do the kids even like them?
Yes. With a caveat. If your children regularly eat typical fruit snacks, these will NOT taste the same and they probably don’t like them. We took some of these on vacation as an easy snack option, but compared to the ice cream treats we splurged on and the candy Grandma shared, these weren’t the first choice.
However, at home, where we generally try to eat less sugar and processed foods, these went over just fine! And having a whole bunch of fruit snacks around the house? That we can pick for a snack for more than just a treat? My kids thought their mom had gone crazy!
Veggie-Go’s Fruit and Veggie Snacks are a great option for moms trying to send a healthier snack in their kids’ lunch. And if you have some of those “real food” kids who don’t normally have the same foods as everyone else in the school cafeteria, this is a chance to have a similar kind of food as their friends without all the yucky ingredients. That’s definitely a win.
