Smashies are definitely one of those products that make you say “Why didn’t I think of that?”. Just when you think you have been spoiled by every toddler-friendly product imaginable, here comes another one. Smashies are convenient pouches of applesauce specifically designed for kids. Each serving of Smashies organic applesauce comes in a resealable squeeze pouch (think Capri Sun) which can easily be tossed in your diaper bag or tots backpack for school.
Not only are Smashies convenient but they are healthy too! I know you are thinking that this is too good to be true, but I kid you not! Each pouch is filled with certified USDA organic applesauce, with no added sugar, salt or fat. This is a fun way to make sure your kids are eating healthy, probably without even noticing that they’re good for them!
My daughter was a big applesauce fan up until about six months ago, I think she just got bored with it honestly. I’ve been trying to encourage her to try new fruits and veggies, but she’s been catching on to the idea that these are healthy things and healthy things are supposedly “yucky”! I am pretty certain that Nick Jr. fruit snacks don’t qualify as recommended fruit servings, so Smashies arrived just in time! As soon as she saw the pouches, she was sold, and as soon as I read the labels, so was I!
I know this probably is going to sound like poor parenting, but my daughter actually finished all four of Smashies in less than two days! Trust me, I don’t usually OD my daughter on snacks, but she loved them so much that she actually convinced my husband to give her the extra two that were left over, unbeknownst to me!
Smashies currently offers these snacks in one flavor, Snappy Apple, but they will soon be coming out with three more varieties. These are the things I look forward to now that I’m a mom.
