I was recently introduced to Buddy Fruits, a healthy fruit snack for children that contains fruits and ONLY fruits – nothing artificial – no added sugar. It also contains only a few calories and one pouch is equal to one full serving of fruit. For this review and introduction to Buddy Fruits we received some Pure Blended Fruit and some Pure Fruit Bites to try in a variety of different flavors including orange, apple, raspberry and more.
We try very hard to give our kids healthy snacks and sometimes when we’re out an about it’s not very easy to find them a healthy snack. A lot of times we take our own snacks with us.. we will place some fruit in a baggie for our trip but then you have to worry about keeping them cold. With some of the other fruit snacks offered in stores today a lot of them are filled with sugar and other unhealthy ingredients, so it’s good to know that we can now find a good 100% fruit snack without all of those extras added in.
Our kids loved these little snacks, they couldn’t get enough and kept asking for more. Our daughter was even trying to wheel and deal with us so she could have more. She would offer to trade me her favorite stuffed elephant (which goes everywhere with her) for more snacks! We rarely find things that they are that interested in so it was good to see they really liked something that was good for them.
Our sons first impress was really cute. We started them out with the blended fruit and once he tried it his little eyes lit up and all he kept saying was “Yuummm!”. Our daughter also chimed in between bites with ” This good!”.
I love the design of the blended fruit packages. They’re fun and colorful and easy for kids to use. If your little one doesn’t finish their blended fruit in the first sitting you can always just screw the lid back on and save it for later. The same goes for the fruit bites.. when you’re little one is done just close the resealable bag and get it out again when he or she is ready for another snack. The reclosable packaging makes it very convenient and easy to travel with. Shortly after we were the items for review I noticed these popping up at our local Walmart, you can also visit BuddyFruits.com to find a retailer near you.
We even tried our hand at a video review with these. Why is it when you get the camera out all their shyness comes out? Actually I take that back.. usually when we get the video camera out they like to start showing off but for some reason when we do the reviews that’s when they get all shy on us! Here is our short video of the twins enjoying their Buddy Fruits..
